->"Manís discovery that his genitalia could serve as a weapon to generate fear must rank as one of the most important discoveries of prehistoric times, along with the use of fire, and the first crude stone axe."
-->--Susan Brownmiller, ''Against Our Will: Men, Women, and Rape''
Rape is one of the more difficult subjects to handle in a work of fiction, not least because (unlike, say, a gruesome and violent murder) there is a higher chance that one of the work's readers has experienced this crime first-hand. For the most part, the tropes that have been collected here describe less sensitive and sometimes [[ValuesDissonance downright backwards]] depictions of rape.
[[RapeIsASpecialKindOfEvil For obvious reasons]], many of these tropes are considered crossing the MoralEventHorizon.
Contrast FlirtingAndCourtship (trying to get it on with someone ''properly'').
* BedTrick - because someone is deceived into having sex, the sex is nonconsensual.
* ButLiquorIsQuicker - see DateRape below.
* HornyDevils: Human-demon sexual encounters are not ''always'' rape, but many times they are.
* SlippingAMickey - This trope is not always associated with rape, but it often is.
