"They'll say: 'You can't joke about rape! Rape is not funny!' I say, fuck you! I think it's hilarious, how do you like that? I can prove to you that rape is funny. Picture Porky Pig... raping Elmer Fudd! Well, why do you think they call him 'Porky'?"The whole point of a certain type of comedy is to find humour in the horrific. When a good joke is made of a horrible thing, the darkness of the subject-matter gives it a unique strength and poignancy. Given that sexual assault is as old as humour itself, it's unsurprising that it features in some of the oldest comedy known to us — though the consideration of sexual assault as punishment/a humourous come-uppance hasn't travelled particularly well, since modern audiences no longer find sexual assault funny in itself — modern audiences are generally far too aware of the immense pain of the subject matter to be amused by it, except when it and attitudes towards it are effectively satirised (e.g. the page quote, which we managed to agree presented a situation which was sufficiently ridiculous as to be funny for almost everyone). A partial exception (depending on how well it's done) to the 'not inherently funny' thing we just said about sexual assault is the sexual assault of men (including, if not especially, by women). A big part of the humour is the idea that men shouldn't need help and aren't 'manly'/masculine if they ask for and/or get it — this 'meaning' (inverted commas) that being sexually assaulted as a man isn't just amazingly painful, especially if it's someone you know and/or trust, but also something one deserves if one is unwilling or unable to prevent it. As a general rule, the best comedic material about sexual assault demonstrates a certain compassion and understanding (Sexual assault as largely a question of power/control rather than sex, having effects unique to each victim (sexuality, gender, species, etc. of perpetrator being irrelevant), having no influence on sexuality of victim or perpetrator, etc, etc) that the worst does not — in favour of a kind of sneering dismissiveness that hints at very real contempt — especially when it takes the form of deliberate mean-spiritedness and/or ignorance that highlights our own compassion and knowledge. If the heroes of a work approve of or commit sexual assault, this can lead to the viewer feeling a certain Moral Dissonance which can ruin the mood of the comedy. See also Ass Shove (based on the same principles), Prison Rape (when played for comedy), Karmic Rape, and Memetic Molester (specific sub-tropes). Often overlaps with one of the Double Standard Rape tropes, as it's easier to laugh at a type of sexual assault considered less "serious" than a man attacking a woman. Compare Rape Portrayed as Redemption. Contrast Rape as Drama. Note: Skinship Grope is not Black Comedy Rape. Nor are the many, many varieties of consensual sex being used for comedy.
open/close all foldersRape in General
- Russell Howard's stand-up act includes Yawn Rape.
- Frankie Boyle found out that Rape is in predictive text in his phone:
- Boyle: Why would Rape be in predictive text!? "Sorry mum, will be late for dinner, gone raping."
- On Chelsea Lately, sometimes the comedian Loni Love will suddenly grab the man sitting next to her by the head and kiss him. She calls it "face-raping someone".
- The Brazilian comedian Rafinha Bastos told a lot of rape jokes of man by man, and even told one about him being a child/teen prostitute that would please truck drivers. Things hit the fan when he made a joke about ugly women thanking the rapists, and another that he would "do" a famous actress and her baby.
- Neil Hamburger has been known to do this, usually in the form of a Poor Framing Device.
- George Carlin had an entire bit on how you can joke about rape, including the page quote.
- In Titus, a teenage version of the main character gives the advice given to him by his father:
Dad taught me to never give up. And when it comes to women, never take 'no' for an answer, and only sometimes take 'get off me' or 'I'm calling the police' for an answer.
- Bill Cosby, after being subjected to rape allegations, told female audience members that they should be careful drinking around him. It did not go over well.
- David Mitchell in his Soapbox YouTube series discusses how rape sounds horrible standalone, but loses its edge when not, on the example of "Raping and Pillaging". Going off to Rape and Pillage sound like jolly good fun, but takes a dark turn if someone states "...Well, NOT pillaging".
- Comedian Mike Birbiglia had a woman let him into his apartment building while he was lugging a large mattress and found it difficult to reach for his keys. She justified letting a stranger into the building by saying "I know you're not a rapist because a rapist wouldn't have a bed like that".
Mike: Now... what I should have said... was nothing. What I did say was, "You'd be surprised".
- In Promstuck, Vriska says it is important to always be on top during sex, because that means you're winning. She also tells John not to bother with foreplay and go straight for the goods ("no-one 8others with the salad 8ar, John!"), and that 'negotiating clear boundaries' are for 'dowdy middle-aged English professors'. Fortunately, being in a fanfic, the humour relies on the audience knowing this is completely wrong, and that Vriska is therefore an extremely inexperienced blowhard who had no idea what she's talking about.
- "Fail!rape" crops up occasionally; this refers to Attempted Rape which fails in a humorous manner. An Axis Powers Hetalia Kink Meme fill loosely inspired by the infamous "Financial Crisis Gang Bang" comic falls under this heading; in it, Canada is extremely angry at America and decides to rape him as "punishment", but Canada is "too polite and too French to make sex unpleasant".
- A more literal example than usual in Hivefled; while raping Dualscar, the Grand Highblood forces him to try to tell a joke with the promise he'll be allowed to live if he finishes the joke before GH is done with him.
- Mangle sexually assaulting Foxy in Dante's Night At Freddy's 2: Animatronic Boogaloo is treated as absurd, sad, disgusting, and hilarious all at the same time. It helps that Foxy himself actually responds to it with little more than annoyance.
- In Harry Potter, Unexpected Animagus, Viktor Krum cheats during the First Task by using a rabbit covered in sex-change potion to turn the female dragon he's facing into a male so it'll be less interested in guarding the nest containing the golden egg he needs to retrieve. Unfortunately for him, in his nervousness he bungles the Cheering Charm he tries to cast afterwards, turning it into a Gay Charm. Let's just say that karma can be a real bitch sometimes...
- In Tank Girl, the eponymous character jokes about her first time having sex... with her daddy.
- In the Self-Parody Gremlins 2: The New Batch, there is a scene that mocks the first movie when Kate explains why she hates Christmas (her father died while trying to pass as Santa Claus getting down the chimney), she explains, again, why she hates President's Day: because she was molested as a little girl by a guy dressed as Abraham Lincoln. The scene even made his co-star laugh at the camera.
- In Cheech and Chong's The Corsican Brothers, they describe men so evil they "rape the fields and pillage the women".
- In Bio-Dome, Bud and Doyle sneak into the rooms of the two attractive female scientists and climb into bed with them. They are even shown reaching their hands down to the women's crotches. This is all played as a joke.
- In Young Frankenstein, Victor's frigid fiance Elizabeth is raped by the monster. This is treated as comedy, since she reacts by singing joyfully, looking like the Bride of Frankenstein in the next scene, and later treating the Monster as a Henpecked Husband.
- The Korean arcade game "Boonga-Ga Boong-Ga," made for the Japanese market, allows you to commit Kancho on various targets of choice for points. Kancho is a uniquely Japanese way of pranking someone by trying to ram your fingers up their butt, primarily among children. If you've seen Kakashi's "Thousand Years of Pain" technique, you know how it's executed.
- Duke Nukem Forever. From Destructoid's review:
One level in particular takes place in an alien nest where Earth's women... look like they're getting raped. In fact, they are. That's the big joke of the level. The aliens are raping the women to create babies.
- The Witcher 3: The "rape them to fix them" version comes up in one minor sidequest. Four village men decided that the White Lady would settle down if "she had a good ploughing," and set off to do the deed. The problem? The White Lady is an extremely powerful noonwraith and they knew that (they were very drunk). None of the other villagers are surprised or upset when they're found dead.
- In South Park: The Stick of Truth, after you are all ambushed in the Giggling Donkey Inn and save Cartman from being beaten up, he tells you to go and save Princess Kenny from being raped. Butters cheerfully spurs you on with phrases like "They're probably raping Princess Kenny right now". Once you reach the landing, you can hear a bed thumping and Princess Kenny squealing. Open the door, and you find a Drow Elf and Princess Kenny jumping on the bed together. After you get back to Cartman he asks "How badly did they rape you, Princess Kenny?" and Kenny's reply is "Not too badly." Sexual assault is certainly more funny when it's being interpreted by 11-year-olds.
- Not to mention all that anal probing by aliens later on... Randy himself says "This is what happens when you live in a quiet mountain town," as if he's used to it.
- Sexy Losers has this as one of its staple gags.
- According to his blog, the author was deeply offended to discover this entry, and promises not to do it again. But incest and necrophilia are still A-okay!
- In Goblins, Dellyn thought this was true of raping near-human monsters. He laughingly explained to Minmax how he raped Kin every night while beating her nearly to death and then healing her back to perfection. Minmax gave him a Dude, Not Funny! moment... by throwing him through a window. This is also the first time that Minmax is depicted as a decent human being instead of a Munchkin out to murder the main cast for experience and loot or The Chew Toy comic relief.
- In the My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic web comic "Why Me!?", Applejack feels lonely because her friends are too busy to hang out with her. Princess Luna visits her in her dreams and tells her that she can use her power to increase her friends' interest in her. Hilarity Ensues as it goes from Rainbow Dash asking her out, to Attempted Rape by two of her friends.
- A common theme in Twisted Kaiju Theater.
- Muh Phoenix: Spiderman raped Wolverine. Apparently, Daredevil recorded it and uploaded it to YouTube.
- A frequent topic in Jerk City, although it reflects more on the players' puerile sense of humour than anything else.
- A frequent topic in The Bedfellows, in which Sheen is a Depraved Bisexual who mostly rapes and harasses his roommate Fatigue.
- Also an internet meme "There is nothing funny about rape. Unless you are raping a clown."
- At least that's better than "It's not rape if they're dead."
- "In Japan, rape is like saying 'Hello'!"
- And the "surprise buttsecks" meme.
- Well, little Suzy, once upon a time... THERE WAS RAAAAAPE.
- Lampshaded/Parodied in 5 Second Film's The Plagiarist.
- The entire concept of the Memetic Molester. Sometimes it's treated seriously, most of the time it isn't, especially when the term "raep face" (sic) is involved.
- Read this entry from Something Awful.
- The Juggernaut is gonna kill him and rape him and eat his fucking costume.
- Mr Doodleburger's gag dubs involve rape dungeons, incestual rape, rape of animals. Pretty much anything involving rape has been played with.
- Half the solutions for any given problem or questions on 4chan is "rape." That is all we are saying on the matter.
- A The Onion fake news video "announced" that the then-upcoming final entry in the Harry Potter series would contain a date rape scene. In-universe, it was treated as Rape as Drama, to the viewer, it was this. Harsher in Hindsight in that the abuse of Dumbledore's younger sister by Muggles is a major part of the backstory; the audience isn't privy to the exact details of the abuse, but it's implied to be bad.
- Happens on American Dad! with Steve and his friends a lot, although it's usually more molestation than rape. Who could forget Randy in "The 42 Year Old Virgin".
Creepy Man: "Hey champ, get enough sleep last night?"
- Or what about Barry's uncle's "secret basement movies"? It Crosses the Line Twice when Barry's reminiscence saddens him because he got too old for it.
- There's the joke about boys who don't get enough sleep letting off a scent that attracts pedophiles.
- In gym class, when everyone has to tell a secret, Snot's is "My therapist says I'm a bad kisser".
- Snot also remarks nonchalantly "Maybe now [that I have a girlfriend], my wrestling coach will finally believe I'm heterosexual and let me shower myself." in "Jenny Fromdabloc."
- Roger did that weird chin innuendo with Steve in "License to Till." In "School Lies", when he's dressed up like Steve, he wants Stan to kiss him on the lips because he "wants that kind of relationship".
- Family Guy: Happens regularly with Peter:
- In Season 5's "Stewie Loves Lois," much of the plot is centered around Peter's mistaken belief that Dr. Hartman was molesting him during a prostate exam. At one point, the trope kicks in as Peter (during Dr. Hartman's misconduct trial) testifies that Dr. Hartman raped him, exaggerating the whole incident.
- Season 8's "Dial Meg for Murder" sees Peter victimized twice — possibly a series record:
- In the opening gag, where Peter tries to make true his latest "dream" of being a rodeo star, he is bucked off a bull (during a bull-riding event), after which the steer performs an act widely interpreted as a sexual assault. note
- In a later scene, after Meg returns home from prison (she had been sentenced to jail for harboring a fugitive), she repeatedly rapes Peter, first by deciding to share his shower.
- The character of Glenn Quagmire lives and breathes this trope. He is guilty of rape, sexual harassment, sexual assault, necrophilia, and a host of other sex crimes (and for that matter, also non-sex crimes). He's been caught spying on ladies in changing rooms, been shown to keep a harem of Asian women who are likely sex slaves in his home, blatantly drugs and date rapes multiple women, stole the murdered corpse of one of his dates so he could take it home to have sex with it, and is explicitly referred to as a convicted rapist more than once by the characters. It is all Played for Laughs and relies heavily on Refuge in Audacity.
- The neighbour Herbert, likewise, is an elderly man who is strongly implied to be a pedophile on his first appearance. Later episodes only make it even more explicit — while he has never been shown outright raping any children, he is almost always alluding to it in some way, shape, or form, or attempting to lure children to his house or trick them into touching him.
- A recurring joke in Bojack Horseman is that Sarah-Lynn was molested by her stepfather.
- My mom's boyfriend home-schools me. He's a photographer.It's bear fur. I can tell, my step dad was a bear.
Rape of/by Animals See also Bestiality Is Depraved.
Anime and Manga
- The Death Panda manages to cross the line twice since the raping is done by a big fat panda that makes hilarious faces.
- In one episode of Hayate the Combat Butler, Hayate ends up dressed as a Cat Girl maid by his employer. Naturally, the employer's pet white tiger, Tama, takes a liking to him, and, umm... yeah. The scene is censored, so we're not quite sure if it's actual rape or molestation, but Tama's certainly going through the motions there before Hayate knocks him away with an uppercut.
- Green Green features a bear explicitly raping Bacchi-Guu... but it's hard to think of who could deserve it more, as he repeatedly plots sexual assaults and actually goes through with what he thinks is a sexual assault. (She liked it.) The same thing happens to the whole Baka Trio on a later occasion. Far worse is the rape of Reika by a troop of monkeys for the apparent crime of being a prude.
- He Is My Master has Pochi, a horny alligator who seems quite fond of Izumi Sawatari. (In the anime, at least. He's surprisingly more courteous in the original manga.)
- In Rizelmine, Aoi's initial meeting with her future boyfriend has her accidentally using a mind-controlling helmet on him, which results in him fiercely licking between her legs, much to her distress. Said future boyfriend was a dog. When her three friends came, she thought she was saved, but it went From Bad to Worse for her; see the rape of women by women section for more details. Meanwhile, although their first meeting was rough, Aio's relationship turned into what she would consider puppy love, but to the now non-mind-controlled pup, it was a literal Rape The Dog moment.
- One of Mayo Mitama's favorite hobbies in Sayonara, Zetsubou-Sensei is raping dogs; she likes to use small sharp objects like pencils and branches to anally violate them.
- While no rape actually happens, Momoka being resuscitated by a space octopus in Sgt. Frog is played out like this trope. On a Sunday morning kids' anime, no less.
- Happens to the entire "Rifle Brigade" in the Garth Ennis comic Operation: Bollock. They're in a stolen German halftrack, while on assignment in the Middle East. The Sultan's pet bull elephant decides the halftrack looks cute. The major orders his men to think of England, and maintain their proper level of detached Britishness. Then the elephant dies in the act on top of them.
- In Top Cow's Aliens/Witchblade/Darkness/Predator crossover, Jackie is captured by the titular Predator and subsequently, ahem, probed, for no discernible reason. Jackie's response to the situation is "Ow. Ow. OWWWW!"
- In Top Secret!, two resistance fighters disguise themselves as a cow and attempt to traverse a field. Unfortunately for the rear member, the "cow" gets mounted by a large bull. A sight gag is made of him later walking funny in the middle of a plot-critical rant.
- In the Ace Ventura sequel, When Nature Calls, the main bad guy, after his plans to bring the Wachati and Wachootoo tribes into war with each other are brought crashing down around his ears, tries to escape their wrath, but is cornered by a silverback gorilla with... amorous intentions. Cue "The Lion Sleeps Tonight."
- In Gremlins 2: The New Batch, the ending has the main human antagonist trapped in his escape tunnels with a voracious mutated-female gremlin. He ultimately shrugs and decides to make the most of it.
- In Trading Places, Clarence Beeks finds himself Bound and Gagged inside a gorilla costume in a cage with a horny male gorilla, in what is supposed to be karmic justice. They're both last seen being loaded on a freighter bound for Africa, for release into the wild.
- Nutty Professor 2: The Klumps has Dean Richmond raped by, of all things, a giant hamster.
- In the New Zealand Zombie-WereSheep-Horror-Comedy Black Sheep (2007), the main hero tries to masquerade as a sheep with a wool seat-cover across a field of flesh eating haggis-ingredients. One of said animals takes an interest in our disguised hero (who is male), and... "hilarity" ensues.
- In The Rundown, Dwayne Johnson (aka, The Rock) is humped by a monkey while hanging from a tree in a rope trap. Interestingly, he, the big bounty hunter, gets this treatment and not the comparatively smaller and comic relief character who is also trapped next to him.
- The main antagonist of George of the Jungle marries himself to a gorilla in a dark cave, mistaking it for the pretty girl. The gorilla allows him to fire up his lighter and take a good look at his "bride" before blowing it out, and the next shot is the gorilla making out with him as they exit the cave.
- And then there's the interrogation from The Cowboy Way, where a calf and a pantsless Mook interact in a manner that, to the milk-seeking calf, was probably frustrating.
- The infamous "You just got stuffed!" scene from ThanksKilling.
- In the Rob Schneider film The Animal, the protagonist, under the influence of his animal "parts", attempts to sex up a goat. Hilarity, supposedly, ensues.
- In American Pie: Beta House, Edgar of Geek House has a sheep fetish, resulting from being forced to rape one during a fraternity initiation rite. He was the only one to actually do it; the other initiates jerked off into the condom or simply gave up.
- In American Pie Presents: Book of Love, the current member of the Stifler clan winds up (in his own words) "[taking] a moose pickle up the butt".
- The sequel to An American Werewolf in London, An American Werewolf in Paris, heavily implies that, as a werewolf, the main character raped a dog... to death.
- Feast II: Sloppy Seconds has a scene where one of the monsters rapes a cat, treated as a throwaway gag.
- One of the most notorious such scenes in recent years is the bit in which Mike Tyson's pet tiger is drugged and then mockingly penetrated by one of the main characters in The Hangover. Phil, who was high on roofies at the time and has no memory of the incident, is utterly aghast at seeing the security footage of him doing that.
- In the John Waters film Multiple Maniacs, Lady Divine is raped by a giant lobster called Lobstora. Doubles as a Big Lipped Alligator Moment in that it happens with zero foreshadowing and is never brought up again.
- In Revenge of the Nerds, one of the "initiation rituals" at the Alpha Beta fraternity is to have sex with a sheep. (At least the A Bs are "kind" enough to give the would-be pledges a condom to use.) The nerds decide they don't want to do this, and run away from AB house and eventually start their own fraternity.
- In the film Madhouse (the one with John Larroquette), Kirstie Alley's character thinks she's having sex with her husband (played by John Larroquette), but it's a kid's pet snake.
- The Stephanie Plum novel Ten Big Ones involves Stephanie being mounted by seven dogs at once, although there's no penetration. While the character doesn't enjoy the experience, she doesn't seem much traumatised by it either, except for discomfort about a foreign substance in her hair. Repeated in Fearless Fourteen, with Pop Diva Brenda suffering a similar fate via monkey.
- A running gag in the series involves Vinnie's... liaisons with various animals, the most notable being a duck. Stephanie occasionally uses this as blackmail material against him when he's getting on her nerves, threatening to tell his wife. It's played for laughs, though.
- It's also been implied that Stephanie's rival, Joyce Barnhardt, has gotten... friendly with dogs in the past.
- The Amazing Kingdom of Thrills, a theme park in Carl Hiaasen's Native Tongue, buys a dolphin on the cheap to compete with Disneyland's swimming-with-dolphins attraction, but it turns out to be mentally unstable and sexually deviant. One of the bad guys meets his fate by falling into the pool and drowning as the dolphin assaults him.
- In the original first novel that paved Slayers, the heroine, Lina, is captured by a chimera named Zelgadis, and he allows his henchmen to do what they wish to her. In the original Japanese version of the book, one henchman, Zolf, encourages that he and the others rape her, and fellow-henchman Noonsa, a fish-man, partakes on it and stands there expecting eggs to show up. The gist: his race lays eggs to reproduce, and he expects Lina to do the same.
- Possibly Dumbledore's brother Aberforth in the Harry Potter series, who got in trouble for practicing "inappropriate charms on a goat". Considering that he is shown to have a certain fondness for them, right down to having a goat Patronus, it is very telling that J. K. Rowling gave this answer when asked by a young fan.
Fan: In the Goblet of Fire, Dumbledore said his brother was prosecuted for practicing inappropriate charms [JKR buries her head, to laughter] on a goat; what were the inappropriate charms he was practicing on that goat?JKR: How old are you?Fan: Eight.JKR: I think that he was trying to make a goat that was easy to keep clean [laughter], curly horns. That's a joke that works on a couple of levels. I really like Aberforth and his goats. But you know, Aberforth having this strange fondness for goats, if you've read book seven, came in really useful to Harry, later on, because a goat, a stag, you know. If you're a stupid Death Eater, what's the difference. So, that is my answer to YOU.
- 47 Habits of Highly Effective Bank Robbers crosses over with Sexual Karma — one character avoids a lengthy prison sentence thanks to one Brick Joke, but gets anally raped by a dog thanks to another.
- IF I'D KILLED HIM WHEN I MET HIM, by Sharyn McCrumb, includes an incident where a human woman gets drowned when attempting to consummate a liaison with a dolphin in a water park attraction. Described as a "conjugal visit" gone wrong.
Live Action TV
- In 30 Rock, after Jenna is attacked by her pet monkey, Liz meets up with Jack for a completely unrelated reason.
Liz: Oh, and if you hear anything, the monkey didn't attack Jenna. It was trying to mate with her face.
- In the Black Mirror episode "The National Anthem", the Prime Minister is forced to have sex with a pig on national television to save the life of a No Celebrities Were Harmed Kate Middleton. Despite the programme being Black Comedy, the Prime Minister's discomfort is portrayed realistically, with him crying openly while committing the act and throwing up immediately afterwards — the humour arises more from the situation itself.
- On an episode of Boston Legal, Shirley represents an old friend in his divorce, and is horrified to discover that the "other woman" is a cow.
- In the Dad's Army episode "Operation Kilt", Jones and Walker disguise themselves as a pantomime cow and try to hide amongst the real cows in a field, but are chased by a bull with obvious intentions. In the next scene Mainwaring says he will leave them to explain to the costume's owner how they ruined the cow skin.
- In a deleted scene in Jonathan Creek's "The Grinning Man", Joey's actress friend Mina gives her tickets to her new play and warns her that there's a graphic rape scene. Cut to Mina getting taken from behind by a man in a paper mache bull's head making loud mooing noises. Granted, it's not a real rape scene, but it's deliberate narm.
- The Kids in the Hall: Kevin passes out at the thought of deflowering his girlfriend in her parents' bed... then the family dog takes advantage of the situation.
- The BBC2 nature series Last Chance To See features a rare tropical parrot who takes quite a liking to Mark Carwardine.
- In Louie, the title character usually makes rape jokes in his stand-ups and in one he says that if he realized he was the last man on earth he would totally rape animals.
- In an episode of Love Soup, one of the characters is raped by a dog (she has just stepped from the bath, and conveniently dropped her contact lenses). It is heavily implied that this is because the old lady who used to own the dog was exceptionally deviant.
- The Mighty Boosh, with Panda-on-Man.
- Attempted Yeti-on-man in another episode.
- And in the stage show, The Hitcher remarks, "I've figured out that rape is always funnier if there's a crow involved!"
- Pelt the rabbit (also from the stage show).
- There is also some man-on-dolphin, and suggested man-on-fox action.
- The "Christmas Kangaroo" sketch from Hugh Jackman's stint hosting Saturday Night Live.
- Played with in Fargo. At one point, the villain, Malvo, relates a story about a woman being raped by a dog (due to a prank gone wrong) as if it's an amusing anecdote; his audience, however, is utterly horrified.
- Played straight in French song "Le Gorille" by Georges Brassens (1952), but subverted at the end. The song comedically tells the story of a horny gorilla who escapes from his cage and seeks for a mate to lose his virginity. It settles for a young judge, who in the end shouts "Mommy!" just like the man whose execution the judge presided earlier the same day.
- The death metal band Torsofuck have a song called "Raped By Elephants". The lyrics are about Exactly What It Says on the Tin.
- Purple Duck's three-part "Sex Falcon," about a falcon that terrorizes townspeople by raping them and dropping them off a cliff.

- Leslie Fish's song "Jack the Slob" ends with Venus punishing Jack by having him dragged off to the lair of an amorous chimpanzee.
- The Goon Show: Harry Secombe, Peter Sellers, and Spike Milligan allegedly produced the following limerick one line at a time, only viewing the rhyming word of the previous line until it was complete. Not surprisingly, it wasn't used on radio.
There was a young man of Cathay
On a slow boat to China one day
He was trapped at the tiller
By a sex-crazed gorilla
And China's a long, long way!
Stand Up Comedy
- In Ross Noble's Fizzy Logic, he discusses about having your face swapped with your arse and warns people not to have bum-faced children, due to teasing. While it's okay if they get sad, you don't want them to get embarrassed at the zoo.
[audience laughs] "You're ahead of me here, aren't you? THEIR FACES GROW BRIGHT RED! A nearby baboon sees the face!" [mimes baboon] "LEAPS! And starts bumming the child in the face!"
- He then proceeds to go into a Broken Record routine to see how many times he can say "bummed in the face".

- In Mana-Khemia 2: Fall of Alchemy, one of the main characters, Lily, has a "thing" for Punis (cute, blob-like animals). When a family of Punis comes to the school, one particular Puni, Puni Kichi, was unlucky enough (in fact, that was the beginning of his luck) to come across Lily. After that incident, Kichi keeps saying that he laments the "loss of his purity".
- Implied in Dan and Mab's Furry Adventures . "Did he at least give you a dinner and a movie?"
- The Ironic Hell of Jack briefly shows the personal Hell of a character supposedly based on the ex-boyfriend of the artist's wife, who was apparently an extremely unpleasant fellow in many ways, including a... fondness... for dolphins. This being an Ironic Hell, the character now finds himself constantly being raped by dolphins, 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Not being real dolphins, the rapists aren't particularly bothered by the lack of water.
- Usually, the panda living in the PVP offices violently attacks Brent. Then he ends up in a male panda outfit as an attempt to get beaten up by the male panda so a female panda (brought in to mate with the male panda) would find the local panda more attractive. Brent accidentally knocks out the local panda and the female panda is... ahem... quite smitten with Brent. The whole arc starts here.
- Nerf Now page 383: a Sniper from Team Fortress 2 sets up a Spy by replacing his mask with that of a female dog and spraying "bitch heat" pheromones on it. The result is "Max is Dominating Spy!"
- Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog: "Bad Horse, Bad Horse, the thoroughbred of sin! ... So make the Bad Horse gleeful/Or he'll make you his mare!!
- Rémi Gaillard, a humorist who does lots hidden camera, has once made one with two men disguised as bunnies pretending to rape a hunter.

- In American Dad! Roger tells Stan that, to keep their race horse in peak condition, Stan needs to make sure it gets sexual release. One Discretion Shot later, and the horse is unable to race due to its post-molestation trauma.
- Aqua Teen Hunger Force has Frylock creating a dog, accidentally made using Master Shake's DNA. The dog takes a... liking to Carl, who seems to be in self-denial at first (probably realistic for a self-proclaimed macho man like Carl), and as the episode goes on, he seems to get more and more shellshocked.

- At the end of The Cleveland Show "A Cleveland Brown Christmas" episode, Santa Claus gets attacked and raped by a reindeer that was released early in the episode.
- Oddly enough, implied in Duck Dodgers. When the Cadet (Porky Pig) takes the fall for Captain Dodgers, he's sent to a prison (CLEARLY referencing Guantanamo Bay). The Cadet's cellmate pulls out a large coin and says "Oooh, toy piggy bank. Me make deposit." Wonder what happens next?
- In an episode of Family Guy, Peter enters the rodeo. A few seconds later, he gets thrown off the bull, and literally raped by it. In front of everyone. No one does anything. It's then treated as though he's in an abusive relationship with the (anthropomorphic) bull.
- In another episode, Carter and Peter go to play polo at a country club, and Carter is stuck with "Topsy the Roid Rage Horse". The horse begins mauling him, and Peter tells him to "submit" (he meant apologize). Carter then takes off his pants and the camera focuses on Peter exclaiming "Oh my god!"
- A dolphin tries to have his way with Hank in an episode of King of the Hill, after Hank accidentally arouses it. The resort buys his silence, but it doesn't sit well with him. In the end of the episode Hank confronts the resort's owner (who has been sexually harassing Hank's niece Luanne), throws him in the dolphin tank, strokes its abdomen, and leaves as we hear off-camera screams.
- The final scenes of "Shotgun Wedding" and "Cootie Gras" from The Powerpuff Girls. Prison Rape, in the latter.

- And in Part III, they show them raping Popeye in the final battle.
- Speaking of South Park, only they could get away with the rape of a handicapped child by a shark. Twice, in what was clearly a large jab at Comedy Central for censoring any mention of Muhammad in the previous episode.
- It is arguable that in the episode "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride", with what is intended as a sympathetic portrayal of Stan's homosexual dog Sparky actually portrays him as a rapist who forces himself on straight boy dogs. They even whimper and cry as they run away.
- Snooki is reimagined as a large marsupial animal obsessed with "smoosh-smoosh".
- An epic case of dodging the radar in Dan Vs. After being splashed with bear pheromones, Dan is "attacked" by a female grizzly bear and doesn't get away until next morning. Bonus points for the bear growling in a way that blatantly says "I've had better" after it lets Dan go.
- The Wacky World of Tex Avery is a kids' show and can't do this, but they have a disturbingly large number of implied cases (e.g. a stone age guy in a croc disguise pursued by a love-struck female croc).
Rape of/by Machines/Inanimate Objects
Anime and Manga

Later on, Asakura is winding her up, realizes the implications, and this happens. Complete with Chachamaru begging Asakura to stop while Sayo looks on in horror.
- In The World God Only Knows, Haqua prepares an After-Action Report via a simulation device which uses little dolls to represent people. When Haqua, in a fit of annoyance, tells the device that Keima is a pervert, doll-Keima begins molesting doll-Haqua.
- Invoked in a book called Anguished English, which is a large collection of notorious (and hilarious) typographical errors from the history of the printed word — all of them real. Many of the bloopers are very risqué, such as the case when a student in history class was writing about the Industrial Revolution and accidentally referred to the mechanical reaper as the mechanical raper — and then, completely innocently, noted that it "could do the work of a hundred men."
Live Action TV
- In one particular Bartender game of the British Whose Line Is It Anyway, Ryan sings of his eternal love for his teddy bear. Being an improv show, sometimes scrambling for words leads people to... odd places. Because things weren't disturbing enough, Josie decides to reach for a little Rape of Animals to finish off the scene. At least she has the decency to look horrified at what's come out of her mouth. It really has to be seen to be believed.
- Not strictly rape, but in Snatcher, Gillian forces his reluctant Robot Buddy, Metal, to play him a porn video he found in a black market. Metal ends up enjoying it more than Gillian, his small animated portrait floating up the screen and shaking until coming sharply back down with him screaming in orgasm.
- The Battle of California blog had a cartoon involving state-to-state rape. It has since evolved into one of the blog's trademark gags.

The Wire: Jerk, your friends are all here. So why don't you show us on the Ewok where Star Wars touched you?Some Jerk: (takes the Ewok toy) Look, I already told you, I must have been asking for it!
- He also may have been molested by Star Wars.
- In the American Dad! episode "Great Space Roaster", it's mentioned that Roger regularly rapes paper, like his own checkbook. Roger once went on a rampage trying to destroy another man's life, including destroying his garden and raping his sycamore tree, while the saplings were Forced to Watch.
- Drawn Together has Captain Hero (unsurprisingly) do this to a robot. "N-O means N-O! Why doesn't he just remove the chip that allows me to feel pain?"

- Another episode had Peter being raped by steam coming off of a pie. The steam made Quagmire watch.
- Futurama has the Probe-U-Later, which is often described as being exceedingly painful to go through. What its procedure entails is alluded to by Bender in one episode.
Bender: That Probe-U-Later sure knows how to please a man.
- Everyone who's been a Human Popsicle has to go through the Probe-U-Later. This is reinforced several times throughout the series — except that, when the popsicle is female, the Probe-U-Later is never even mentioned. (One could presume that she went through it offscreen. However, the fact that it's not even hinted at still pushes this into Double Standard territory.)
- Regular Show has an episode where Benson, a gumball machine, is shown tied to a door as a unicorn turns his knob and eats gumballs from him.
- One episode of Robot Chicken has a man raping Snuggle the fabric softener bear, while items the Humping Robot has raped include a washing machine and Herbie the Love Bug.

Rape by Monsters
Anime and Manga
- Prevalent in Hentai in doujinshi, usually in the form of tentacle rape, while other stories have the female victims being sexually assaulted by all manner of demons, evil spirits, and the like. The more comical instances sometimes has the victim turn the tables on their would-be assailant, who're either Too Kinky to Torture, or have raging libidos.
- Power Play is a doujishi series that parodies H-Games, by having the protagonist be a fledgling game designer who's being hunted by three of his own characters. In their universenote , he's known the "Evil Sex King," a man-beast who's raped countless women and enslaved them with his sexual prowess — including them. But what begins as a quest for justice ends up being an excuse for them to get more. So he ends up being the victim himself when they repeatedly accost him, under the pretense of trying to "seal away" his evil.
- In Big Trouble in Little China, this is implied to be the punishment of those who end up in the Hell of the Horny Dragon.
- In the French comic 666, a news anchor is raped by one of the demons invading Earth, who insists that her cameraman keeps filming. The scene then shifts to an apathetic family commenting about how news is boring and wondering what is on the other channels.
- The biker girl in Feast spends her last moments on screen getting face-raped by a baby monster.
- Later, in Feast III, Slasher gets violated through a wall by one of the adult monsters. Then we find out that the monsters reproduce via infection...
- In Scary Movie 2, a parody of the Poltergeist scene with the Clown Doll turns into this, and was the likely inspiration for the internet meme, "There is nothing funny about rape, unless you are raping a clown."
- Of course, this scene also features the reverse when the 'victim' turns the tables on the clown doll.
- An infamous scene from the horror film Jack Frost (1997) in which the title character, a killer snowman, liquidates himself to rape Shannon Elizabeth in a bathtub with a carrot.
- In The Last Lovecraft, Captain Olaf recounts us with the story about how the monsters of the deep like to mate with humans.
- In the 1980 film Night of the Demon, it's revealed that a woman had given birth after being raped by (of all things) Bigfoot. What could have otherwise been a slightly disturbing revelation is bogged down by the film's sheer ineptness.
- Leprechaun in the Hood reveals the Leprechaun can rape people to death, a "power" he first demonstrates on a transvestite.
- Several women are raped by Fish People in Humanoids from the Deep, a film which seemed unsure about whether it was black comedy or serious horror.
- In one of two funny rape based segments in This Is the End, Jonah Hill is impregnated long and thick by a demon, while initially dreaming, or thinking he was dreaming, of quite a more pleasurable encounter. The humour arises both from the discrepancy between what he was dreaming about and what was really happening, and because Jonah Hill was such an objectionable character up to then. Objectionable is subsequently upgraded in-universe. The other segment works differently (Emma Watson is neither male nor objectionable).
- The SF "A Darkling Sea" by James Cambias has a very complicated example. First of all, it's alien, not monster, but the description makes it obvious that makes hardly a difference on the receiving end. Second, it's not by malice but rather by culture (imagine a bonobo wanting to mate with you). Third, since the whole book is rather funny, it's invariably read as this trope, but it quickly mixes with Rape as Drama. It's the last straw to bring Vikram Sen, a pacifist, onto a vengeful suicide attack — you can't call it otherwise.
- Once again, The Mighty Boosh, with several instances of monster-on-man rape, including Yetis, Aliens, and Mermaids. Vince actually invented a "game" called Pelt the Rabbit in His Big White Face, which tends to end in people getting raped by giant rabbit-monsters (or people in grotesque rabbit suits, it's not clear which).
- Obviously doesn't actually happen, but in more than one episode of The Big Bang Theory, it's mentioned that Penny once had a bit part in a movie about a rapist monster gorilla. The in-universe film apparently didn't treat this as comedy intentionally, but the intentionally ridiculous title Serial Apist drew a laugh from the show's studio audience every time.
- In the Buffy the Vampire Slayer episode "Go Fish", Buffy is captured by the coach who had exposed the swim team to a concoction that transformed them into fish monsters. He tosses her to them to satisfy their "needs", leading her to snark:
"Wow. They really love their coach."
- After Buffy escapes and the coach falls into the fish-men's clutches instead:
- In the victory movie for the Dungeon Keeper computer game, the Lord of the Land is chained to a wall as trolls taunt him. Then a magic wand turns him into a female troll. It is implied that gang rape ensues.
- The Redeads of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time are infamous for this. While they were supposed to be biting Link's neck in their attack animation, they surely don't look it, and they even pelvic thrust while "biting" him. Redeads are unique in this trope due to the fact that while their attack is funny as hell, it also manages to be creepy and annoying (due to the fact that you cant move while it attacks) at the same time.
- In an optional quest in The Elder Scrolls III: Morrowind, the player is tasked with taunting a Dremora until he attacks, and only then killing it. When aroused to combat, the Dremora delivers an ultimatum that is the same for both genders.
Dremora: After I kill you, I'm going to rape your corpse. Don't worry, I'll be gentle.
- The Jockey from Left 4 Dead has a habit of climbing on the survivors' backs and steering them around, all while humping and laughing its head off.
- Also from Valve, we have the Half-Life and its infamous cut monster, Mr. Friendly. It was cut for being more disturbing than funny.
- Penny Arcade had a World of Warcraft-based comic in which an adventurer left a slave to be beaten and then raped to sleep by "dickwolves". A lot of readers found this not so much funny as distasteful, which led to the following comic being a statement in which Gabe and Tycho said "We hate rapers, and all the rapes they do. If you're raping someone right now, stop. Apologize. And leave. Go, and rape no more." Even some critics who weren't so much against the original strip thought this one was actually worse than it for genuinely belittling and misrepresenting concerns about rape in media. There was a whole hullabaloo of reactions and counterreactions eventually ending with the author(s) apologising for real.
- The Order of the Stick introduced the spell "Evan's Spiked Tentacles of Forced Intrusion". These rape-tentacles nearly beat the giant monster to death.
- Sluggy Freelance. The Genre Savvy lead characters thought they were fighting Face Huggers, but they were wrong. It ends with a call to the proctologist.
- The first episode of The With Voices Project covers one bad ending of Mogeko Castle where Yonaka Kurai gets raped by a small army of Mogekos. Said ending was in the original game, but the Gag Dub greatly tones down the Nightmare Fuel.
- The next episode has the "Do you really want to know?" segment, which contains more bizarre rape imagery than you can shake a cat dick at.
Please get that thing out of my ass!//
- In the second Futurama movie, Beast With A Billion Backs, an Eldritch Abomination comes to our universe and attaches his tentacles to everyone's necks, apparently connected directly to their brains. Leela then finds out they are not tentacles but genitalia.
- The second episode of Xtacles has a lot of talking about rape, but the only thing that could have counted as actual rape happened to a statue (which we found out in The Stinger was done by a talking gorilla). Most of the plot was how the Xtacles were going after someone that obviously had nothing to with said defacement (they figured it only could have been done by an ape and they went after Rapier Ape).
Rape of Men by Women See also Double Standard: Rape, Female on Male.
Anime and Manga
- Played partially sympathetically but mostly for laughs in the manga Ahiru No Oujisama (or, Duck Prince). The main character is raped by his stepsister! And to make matters worse, it was only moments before the rape that he learned they weren't blood relatives. Other characters still get away with mocking him for it....
- In Detroit Metal City (a show with a lot of rape jokes), a little girl that was dressed like Krauser was claimed by fans to be the next incarnation after singing one of his songs and deep throttling a white liquid. When her father entered, she jumped on him and the crowd started cheering for her to rape him and kill him like Krauser had done to his parents.
- In Excel Saga (surprised?) the character Pedro is, on a regular basis, figuratively and literally raped by the universe. Which is to say, abused by the female Anthropomorphic Personification of "The Great Will of the Macrocosm" and the other half of Pedro's actual spouse (sort of), his "Sexy Wife".
- The way Louise treats Saito in The Familiar of Zero, either by magically shocking him or (in most cases) using a whip, are played up for laughs.
- Gakuen Ouji skirts the line with this. While the girls attempting to rape the male lead are seen as utterly depraved for doing so and it's not portrayed as being remotely okay or funny, the manga has an overall pretty wacky and over-the-top tone. Which makes it a bit hard to tell whether it's supposed to be taken seriously or not.
- Tequila's actions toward Kazuya in Galaxy Angel II are played for laughs, although he's terrified; were it the other way around, the character would certainly have to be changed.
- Girls Saurus opens with a burly, overweight, and generally hideous schoolgirl confessing to the male protagonist, and then take her clothes off. When he rejects her, she gets pissed off and beats him up thoroughly; the whole ordeal not only lands him in traction for a long while, but also gives him severe gynophobia. While the reader is made aware how strongly this affects him, few of the other cast members show much sympathy. None of the other main characters know about Shingo's phobia, except for the school nurse. The protagonist confided his condition to her hoping she could help, but this was a bad idea.
- In Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun, the asexual Shungo is regularly tied up and sexually harassed by the girls in his class because they take sadistic pleasure in seeing him squirm; however, none of them try to go all the way with him. The same cannot be said though of Reika, who, after snapping, tries to physically force him to have sex with her (which is not played for laughs).
- Haiyore! Nyarko-san: Nyarko harasses Mahiro all along, but at the end of episode 6 (first season) tries to rape him in his bed. Her deranged idea of love, and Mahiro's terror, are made clear. Note also that Nyarko gets the same treatment; see under Rape of Women by Women.
- When Kaoru of I Can't Understand What My Husband is Saying gets drunk, her only thought is to have sex with her husband Hajime (whether he's in the mood or not). Both of them are horrified by this (Hajime during and Kaoru after the fact), but it's played for laughs due to the jackhammer sound effects accompanying the scene.
- A plot summary of Kanokon: the very well-endowed Chizuru molests/seduces/outright tries to have sex with Kouta on a regular basis, giving him the permanent reputation at school as a huge pervert. At one point, he is caught with a naked Chizuru in the middle of a street when her barrier shatters. She goes furthest on the last episode: tired of waiting for a confession, she abducts and sets out to rape him in an empty classroom, while the helpless, almost-crying Kouta covers his face and begs her to stop (which she does at the last minute, when his rejection finally hits home).
- In the OVA Labyrinth of Flames, anemic pantyshotting Stalker with a Crush kunoichi Kasumi attempts to seduce the object of her desire, Datenoshin. When he pays no attention to her (he has more serious problems on his mind) she drugs him.
- In Mawaru-Penguindrum Ringo doesn't quite rape Shouma, but she does end up trying to kiss him by force and humping him rather... passionately during episode 6, in which she wants a "wedding night" with her crush Tabuki despite being very feverish. She only stops when she collapses atop of him due to her fever.
- When Ringo does openly try to rape Tabuki so she can bear his child, this trope is averted as it shows how badly messed up she is.
- In the ecchi manga, My Balls, the lead male character has a demon lord sealed into his right testicle. If he ejaculates, then she will escape and destroy the world. As a consequence, every chapter consists of the character alternately being raped by a rotating ensemble of demonesses and his off-and-on nymphomaniac love interest.
- Naruto: Although she never got to doing (being interrupted by forces from Konoha finding their group), it's heavily implied once that Karin planned to drug Suigetsu and Jugo, then when they were unconscious, rape Sasuke when he was injured from a battle.
- In Ranma ½, Kodachi uses "paralysis powder" to render an unwilling Ranma helpless and is fully intending to take advantage of the situation more than once, fortunately interrupted each time.
- In the finale of Tenchi Muyo! GXP, the protagonist Seina Yamada gets gang banged by four women after being kidnapped by them. Oh, and it was on video for all the universe to see.
- Yuria 100 Shiki features Yuria, a Ridiculously Human Robot Sex Bot who, because of her programming, constantly tries to force sex on her unwilling (because he is already engaged) roommate, Shunsuke. Fortunately for Shunsuke, he is a skilled amateur wrestler and has so far managed to avoid her very, very persistent "advances."
- In The Pro, the title character manages to track down a client she had at the start of the comic, who has a history of assaulting, raping and ripping off prostitutes. She rips off his pants, and then all the prostitutes line up to shove progressively larger things up his arse (mind you, he was an Asshole Victim. Very much so.)
- Happens to Bob in Horndog.
- In one of the Giffen and Dematteis issues of Booster Gold (V2). Booster spends the entire issue being dragged around by an amorous, super-strong female space pirate who intends to rape him as soon as they have a free moment. She makes it very clear that his protests don't matter, and that he probably won't survive the experience. Entirely Played for Laughs.
- The Dimension Queen/Eldritch Abomination Umar (sister of Doctor Strange villain Dormammu) once spent almost an entire miniseries of The Defenders raping the Incredible Hulk. Umar couldn't get enough, and was very disappointed when the Hulk became so satisfied with the experience that Bruce Banner reverted to normal and couldn't Hulk Out!
- Greg Pak followed up on this in a later story where Umar returned for seconds. This time, Hulk was much stronger and up to the challenge.
- In 40 Days and 40 Nights, the protagonist is raped by his ex-girlfriend, and has to apologize to his love interest for "cheating" on her. The ex-girlfriend not only gets away scot-free, but wins money on the deal.
- In the comedy The Deviants, a woman tells a matchmaker for sex deviants that she must have sex with every man she talks with privately. It's immediately demonstrated as she pulls up a gun and tells him to strip. He refuses, so she knocks him out with the gun and proceeds to have her way with him. When his female helper hears about it, she not only laughs about him being raped, but gives him a weird look and then pressures him to laugh too. To top it off, he sends her another client of his fully aware of what she'll do to him (probably him just doing his job, given that this client smiles when she tells him to strip at gunpoint).
- A major subplot of Wedding Crashers follows Vince Vaughn's character being pursued by a clingy, obsessive girl who eventually ties him to a bed, gags him with a dirty sock, and rapes him (Vaughn's character described himself as feeling like "Jodie Foster in The Accused" in a later scene). Of course, this is played for laughs, as the character is an extreme womanizer, and he reacts to these events more with annoyance than horror and ends up marrying the girl before the movie ends.
- In National Lampoon's Barely Legal (aka After School Special), some high school guys plant a fellow student's photo in their porn site without him knowing. His hairdresser is then convinced he can cast her into porn movies. When he has no idea what she wants from him, she pours a can of hair mousse into her hand and circles him. Ignoring the other people in the salon, she gives him, out of nowhere, a handjob from behind, causing him to scream in panic.
- In the direct-to-video American Pie Presents: Beta House, Stifler goes to a sex addicts' meeting in his college hoping to find easy targets. After he commends a speaker's bravery for finally being abstinent for a while, she looks at him and it is followed by them having sex in his dormitory. However, her hypersexual behavior causes him to eventually trick her and run away. His roommate then comes looking for him, and the still nude female student orders and immediately pushes the stranger to bed, and jumps on him.
- In the recent movie adaptation of St. Trinian's, towards the end, Geoffrey Thwaites has a drink with his old lover, Miss Fritton, and wakes up naked in her bed the next morning.
- In the 1990 Clint Eastwood vehicle The Rookie, Clint stars as a detective chasing down a ruthless car thief. Captured by the thief and his girlfriend, Clint is tied to a chair and interrogated by the villains. Later, the lady thief mounts Clint and screws him while a camera records the action. Later, when Clint's partner comes to rescue him, the sex is comically being played on a number of TV screens, causing the partner to jokingly prod Clint about how much fun he's been having. This is all played for laughs instead of as a perverse sexual assault.
- In the musical adaptation of Reefer Madness, this happens in the musical number "Little Mary Sunshine," in which Ralph's marijuana-facilitated attempted seduction of Mary goes horribly, horribly wrong.
- A '70s Made-for-TV Movie called It Couldn't Happen to a Nicer Guy concerns a man who is kidnapped, stripped, and sent away naked by a beautiful woman, and his subsequent difficulties getting the authorities — or his wife — to believe his story.
- Norbit's entire relationship is pretty much based on Rasputia strong-arming her way into his world by saving him from two bullies, and doing this to his entire social life.
"Heeeeey. What's YOUR name? My name's Rasputia."
"Hey Noooorbit. You got a giiiiirlfriend?"
"WELL YA DO NOW!" and then she picks him up and drags him off cavewoman style.
- Tomcats plays it straight and subverts it. The quiet Hot Librarian chick turns out to be an S&M monster...And so is her grandmother! The lead character winds up not fully traumatized, more in a daze.
- Beerfest at first makes it look like Jay Chandrashekar's character is being taken advantage of, he fades in and out of beer goggle vision of the woman he picked up at the bar. When he wakes up and turns over, he stares up at the ceiling camera and says "Naaah, I knew all along!"
- In Super Troopers, while Foster is posing as a flasher in front of the police station, Ursula (his soon to be love interest) holds him at gunpoint from behind and uses a voice changing device to make him think he's about to be raped.
- In Super, Ellen Page rapes Rainn Wilson. Arguably at least played with, if not averted wholly. The build up to the scene is certainly played for laughs (Page's character is hilariously bad at seduction) but the actual rape is shown to be fairly traumatic for Wilson's character. It even deals with the guilt he feels afterwards (/he/ considers it cheating on his girlfriend, and is pretty skeeved out as Page is significantly younger than him) in a surprisingly grown up way.
- In the third Basket Case the sheriff's Seemingly Wholesome Fifties Daughter strangely turns out to be a dominatrix who tries to rape Duane, much to the sheriff's annoyance.
- In Horrible Bosses, Jennifer Aniston's Depraved Dentist has her way with male patients while they're under the gas.
- In Get Him to the Greek Jonah Hill's character is raped by a woman named Destiny with a large dildo.
- In Euro Trip one of the characters gets trapped in a BDSM club/torture chamber, and is raped by a domme.
- In Myra Breckinridge, the titular character anally rapes a man using a strap-on dildo. This act is generally construed as teaching the man a lesson and making a statement for sexual equality. The entire work satirized sex, gender, and sexual practices.
- Judith Krantz's novel I'll Take Manhattan's Maxi and her ex Rocco — at one point she grabs his penis during an argument, which leads to a hard-on, which leads to... well, him saying she raped him afterwards.
- In the first chapter of John Irving's The World According to Garp, a book that is otherwise largely concerned with gender equality, Jenny Fields mounts an unconscious, brain-damaged soldier with priapism in order to get pregnant. She goes on to detail this in her autobiography and is never called on it.
- In Robert Jordan's The Wheel of Time, The Lancer and Fun Personified Matt Cauthon comes to the palace of Queen Tylin in his latest effort to help his friends. The queen decides that Matt would be perfect as her new boy toy. When he tries to get help from the awesomely powerful sorceress he's here to assist, she laughs and mocks him. Mostly because she misread the situation, she thought Mat was simply griping about his lover, and when she does find out how far Tylin is pushing Mat she regrets her mockery and tries to console him. However, this all happens rather briskly, since they're about to go hunting after an important MacGuffin and end up separated afterwards.
- In the same book, this is implied to have happened to Lan as well with a bit of mind raped mixed in. At least in this case another character points out that the rapist ought to be punished. Egwene decides to blackmail her instead. Rape of the minor villain Galina by another woman with some rather sadist tendencies is presented as karmic justice.
- The War World series has a female Havenite rape a genetically-enhanced Sauron at gunpoint in order to get pregnant with his "superior" child. She later frees him and his Ax-Crazy Cold Sniper cellmate from a prison camp and again forces them to impregnate her as the first time didn't take.
- In the Red Dwarf novel Last Human, Lister is forced to marry a hideously ugly Gelf (Genetically Engineered Life Form). The situation is played mostly for laughs, but his emotions during the sex are touched on in a curiously realistic way.
- In Memories of Ice, book three of the Malazan Book of the Fallen, there's a Running Gag in Antsy's squad of Detoran having a crush on Hedge, and Detoran in turn being the object of amorous intentions from a bull bhederin (something like a buffalo) who keeps following her around. Detoran shows her affection by pummeling Hedge into her tent or the nearest bushes and the remainder of the squad finds Hedge's frantic attempts to escape surpremely comical. When Blend voices her pity for Hedge, Picker claims he's obviously enjoying it or it wouldn't still be happing night after night, but Blend counters that as soldiers, they all know following orders is the best way to stay alive, what with Detoran having broken Hedge's nose several times over already.
Live Action TV
- Porterhouse Blue: The rape of a college's only research graduate male student by his middle-aged bedder is graphically portrayed, but we never learn how it would have affected him because moments after the act starts they both die in a heating gas explosion.
- Mystery Science Theater 3000 Episode #610, The Violent Years features a scene where a young man is sexually assaulted by a group of four attractive high school girls. While William Morgan, the director of the movie (and Ed Wood, its writer) attempt (and, arguably, fail) to play the scene dead straight as a horrific and traumatizing crime, Mike and the 'bots have the typical male "What a lucky guy" reaction to these events, because the scene ended up being pure Narm.
[over shots of spinning newspapers]Crow: Refuses to Press Charges!Servo: Says: "ThankYouThankYouThankYouThankYou!"Mike: Hundreds of Men Flock to Crime Scene!
- Only a few episodes after he raped his ex-wife, Tommy on the dark comedy/drama series Rescue Me is drugged with roofies and raped by his needy, obsessive, psychotic girlfriend Sheila after turning down her offer to retire and run away with her to live at her beach house.
- Buffy the Vampire Slayer:
- In the sixth season episode "Gone", Buffy, while invisible, "forces" oral sex on Spike, who has just told her to get dressed and get out. His reaction is a simple "Hey, that's cheatin'!".
- Faith did try to rape and murder Xander. He jokes about it in a later episode, but this is likely due to cover his fears after she wakes up from a coma and goes on a rampage.
- General Hospital has sunk to a new low with a female-on-male rape storyline. Not for the actual rape of good-guy Jasper Jax by his sociopathic brother's ex-lover, but for the reaction of his wife and her hitman best friend (aka the moral centers of Port Charles). Carly accuses Jax of cheating while he's still bloody and bruised. Then she and Jason, her aforementioned sainted hitman best friend laugh at how silly the thought of Jax actually being raped is.
- In Life On Mars, Sam Tyler gets slipped a roofie and ends up being both Chained to a Bed and raped by a woman. It's not really treated for comedy, except by Gene Hunt.
- Invoked in Veronica Mars. A whole plot line was about women being drugged and raped, then a guy got drugged and had an easter egg stuck up his ass. Everybody thought it was pretty funny, but Veronica, who is no stranger to rape, pointed out there was no reason for the different treatment.
- Initially partially demonstrated in season 5 of Peep Show when Mark's co-worker commits frotteurism by rubbing her bottom on him in a closet room until he comes and runs out. Then, some episodes later, Mark wakes up to find a woman he mistook for lesbian mounting him. He once again tries passing it off as an embarrassing misunderstanding, but this time shares it with Jez and Super Hans, who both remark it sounds like he was raped. Jez later even tells so to both the woman and her father, but the father just ignores it while the woman takes offense.
- Whilst the example where Mark wakes up having sex with the "lesbian" is discussed in a childish manner, the writers managed to sneak an adult topic into the plot when Jeremy and Super Hans not only argue that rape isn't ok regardless of the offender's gender, but discuss how all unwanted sexual contact is still rape:
Super Hans: [surprised] You've been raped?Mark: ...a woman just continued to have sex with me after I asked her to stop. That's all!Super Hans: Sounds like you were raped to me, Mark. Classic case.Mark: It wasn't rape! It was... just a minor sexual assault. She never forced anything in my bum, so it's not rape.
- Whilst the example where Mark wakes up having sex with the "lesbian" is discussed in a childish manner, the writers managed to sneak an adult topic into the plot when Jeremy and Super Hans not only argue that rape isn't ok regardless of the offender's gender, but discuss how all unwanted sexual contact is still rape:
- In the My Name Is Earl episode "I Won't Die With a Little Help From My Friends" when the titular character is in a coma his gurney falls out the back of an ambulance and gets caught on the grill of a passing semi. His friends are able to find where the driver lives and confront her. They find her about to marry the still-unconscious Earl, but it's implied that his friends have rescued him from rape. It later turns out that they were too late, as the doctor delivering a list of Earl's injuries includes involuntary orgasm, to which his ex-wife responds, "Oh my god, that crazy bitch tried to consummate the marriage!"
- In the Red Dwarf episode "Emohawk", Lister's gorilla-like bride attempts to forcibly consummate the marriage (he married her to get a part for Starbug), prompting Lister to flee.
- Rimmer is repeatedly raped by female crew members in Back in the Red after drinking liquid sexual magnetism (although being Rimmer, he doesn't mind the sexual attention). Complicating the matter is the fact that Rimmer was because he was using the sexual magnetism virus, he's arguably the one raping them via drugging, since most women wouldn't consent to being in the same room as Rimmer if given the option. This one's sort of a gray area though, since it all turns out to be hallucinations.
- In the non-hallucinated last part of the episode, Lister dumps a vial of the sexual magnetism virus on Rimmer, and we see him getting fondled by the male prisoners, and the earlier parts of the episode which take place in the aftermath, he's not on speaking terms with Lister, implying he was raped by the other prisoners.
- In the novel Last Human which uses part of Emohawk as its plot, Lister isn't lucky enough for it to stop at 'attempt,' as she started before he regained consciousness.
- Rimmer in Red Dwarf only had sex once in his life with an actual woman before he died the first time note , with the ship's female boxing champion Yvonne McGruder. According to the recaps of the event, she had just finished a very intense match, and kept calling Rimmer by a different name, suggesting severe head trauma. The humor is clearly centered around Rimmer's complete inability to bed a woman unless she had a concussion.
- The canonical book gives greater detail, stating that Yvonne was attracted to Rimmer, and after the incident, thought she'd hallucinated it. While the books have a lot of the same gags as the show, some things are taken more seriously: a major character from "Last Human" is one Michael R. McGruder, the result of this. Apparently, Yvonne talked up Rimmer to such a degree that Michael sees him as a legendary hero!
- Rimmer is repeatedly raped by female crew members in Back in the Red after drinking liquid sexual magnetism (although being Rimmer, he doesn't mind the sexual attention). Complicating the matter is the fact that Rimmer was because he was using the sexual magnetism virus, he's arguably the one raping them via drugging, since most women wouldn't consent to being in the same room as Rimmer if given the option.

- Married... with Children:
- Even though Al Bundy never wanted to have sex with his wife, sometimes Peg just wouldn't take no for an answer, and hilarity would ensue.
- His son Bud sometimes caught the fancy of very large, very fat women whose appearances bordered on horrific, who dragged him offscreen despite his horrified screams. After one such experience, a traumatized Bud commented that "Now I know how Tom Arnold feels."
- Other episodes (for Bud):
Season 8, Episode 17 - "Valentine's Day Massacre" (by a hotel guest when he is posing as a bellhop while trying to bypass security. In the end he gets past the guard by luring him to the same hotel guest)
Season 10, Episode 06 - "The Weaker Sex" (twice by the same woman, the biker in the bar)
- One episode had an unusual example of this trope, as Bud gets raped by an attractive woman. The reason he was unwilling? He had just finished having sex with another attractive girl who was joining a convent the next day and wanted to get her fill of sex while she could. As a result, for the first time in his life, Bud was all used up when the second girl came around and dragged him off.
- Commandant Grayza and John Crichton on Farscape, which granted is only funny once John finds an antidote to Grayza's date-rape pheromones and leaves her tied to the bed at the conclusion to an unpleasant romp through sexual interrogations.
- In the Flight of the Conchords episode "Girlfriends", naive Bret hooks up with the manipulative Lisa. After several attempts to get him into bed, she feeds him some stories about how women can become infertile if they're aroused but do not climax and how she is being shipped off to Iraq the next day.
- The '80s sitcom Too Close for Comfort had an episode called "For Every Man, There's Two Women" that has amiable dope Monroe abducted and raped by two women during his security guard job. Cracked has a suitably disturbing description here.
- In Dagvaktin, Óli is repeatedly raped by his boss, Brawn Hilda Gugga, with realistic psychological effects - every time it happens, Óli wanders around the hotel looking violated, and his Jerkass Woobie coworker calls him a 'sex slave'. It's played for very, very Black Comedy and most of the humor comes from the fact that Óli is so stupid he doesn't even realise he's being raped and isn't just a Chick Magnet.
- Averted in Fresh Meat. In one episode the characters, who are all first year students in college, drunkenly swap stories about their first sexual encounter. Kingsley, desperate to hide the fact that he's still a virgin, concocts a story about losing his virginity at the age of 12 to a woman in her 30's in order to impress them. This backfires, as the rest of the group point out the horrifying implications of this, and attempt to help him come to terms with what they believe happened to him.
- Series two of Psychoville introduces Hattie, a Fag Hag who agrees to a Citizenship Marriage with her gay friend's boyfriend so that he can remain in the country. Hattie becomes romantically obsessed with him, chains him up in the house and eventually rapes him, all played for laughs (though it's obvious she is slipping into insanity, the victim in question is clearly very disturbed by what she did to him and her friend is horrified about what she's done to his boyfriend.)
- mr_melvis's "Whose Fantasy Is This, Anyways?" (released by Comfort Stand Recordings and free to download under Creative Commons) depicts a man picking up a girl in a bar, who proceeds to subject him to a lot of things he wasn't ready for, coldly telling him statistics about the porn industry and even delivering Bond One Liners after beating/electrocuting/burning him. She even tells him "It's time girls like me turn the tables on guys like you," before leaving the house with him bound up with a ball-gag.
- Alice Cooper's "Raped And Freezin'", where the narrator is picked up hitchhiking by an older woman. She rapes him, he escapes but is left stranded and naked in Mexico, and it's all played for humor.
- Slash and Fergie collaborated on a song called "Beautiful Dangerous". In the music video, Fergie drugs Slash's drink at a bar and drags him home to date rape him.
- In the Filk Song Banned From Argo by Leslie Fish, in which the crew of the Enterprise get, well, banned from Argo, Nurse Chapel uses an "odd green potion guaranteed to cause Pon Farr" to take advantage of Spock. This is Played for Laughs and treated no more seriously than Scotty and Chekov's drunken parking violation.
- In The Comedy of Errors two men's twin brothers show up in town and Hilarity Ensues. Dromio of Ephesus is engaged to Nell. Dromio of Syracuse shows up and is mistaken for his brother, chased about by Nell and so on. He finds her repulsive and spends a good bit of the day avoiding her. In many adaptions Nell chases Dromio of S. around the stage, sits on his lap, paws at him, etc. This is all played for laughs. Not to mention the implications of Antipholus of S. spending the day in the company of his twin brother's wife ...
- Older Than Feudalism: In Aristophanes' The Assemblywomen (of Ecclesiazusae), a new law is enacted declaring that before any man may have sex with a beautiful woman, he must screw an ugly one (and a mirror provision for women). The second act has a couple of old hags dragging off a young man who'd shown up at his (young and presumably beautiful) lover's house.
- In McMeekin Finds Out, a dark comedy drama by Scott Barsotti, one of the characters, Carla McMeekin, a 17 year old girl, rapes a football player (who was almost mummified with duct tape) during a hazing party which had been designed by the rest of the team to humiliate the player in question in order to punish him for his fumble during a match. This is treated seriously by all the other characters, even the father, Guy McMeekin who is sceptical about the possibility of a woman raping a man, but it is the subject of edgy humour, with the mother Pam McMeekin asking whether the player had been dressing slutty. The play itself is a dark comedy although Barsotti considers the possibility that it could be a comedy/horror mash-up in the sense that the subject matter is horrifying. To her credit, Carla bitterly regrets what has happened.
- One of the missions in Bully involves driving off kids who harass Edna, Bullworth's obligatory frumpy and slovenly cafeteria lady, while she's on a "date" with Dr. Watts, the chemistry teacher. Unbeknownst to Watts, Edna has slipped sedatives in his coffee, and once the mission is over, the viewer is treated to a (mercifully brief) cutscene of Edna dragging Watts to a nearby sleazy hotel.
- In Maniac Mansion, when male kids are caught by Nurse Edna, she says "How silly of me! I should've tied you to my bed!" This line was omitted from the NES port.
- Actually attempted in Tales of Monkey Island Chapter 4: The Trial and Execution of Guybrush Threepwood: Just when Guybrush is about to answer to his criminal charge, a Poxed Elaine barges into the Flotsam Courthouse, threatening to pillage and plunder for "spoils, swags, booty and boodle", then sees him and calls him a "bonnie lass" before adding, "Step into me captain's quarters and let me ravish you silly!" and doing a freaky waltz with him. But then she sniffs his jacket and, thinking that he had an apparent affair with Morgan, triggers a Berserk Button as Elaine charges after her in an attempt to kill her.
- If you get grabbed by a Vampire in Grabbed by the Ghoulies, you will be yanked inside her coffin, the coffin will rock, she will make rather... interesting noises, and you will take damage gradually until you shake free.
- In Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas, one of the pre-mission cutscenes involves Carl being chained to a rack and raped by his hostile Tsundere partner, Catalina. Thankfully, this is off-screen. Unthankfully, there is audio.
- May have happened to the titular character of Dominic Deegan: Oracle for Hire on his first date with Rachel Hart, a literal Amazon who likes to break things with her face. How they hooked up to begin with is never mentioned, but since this incident involved kitty-ears and a bell even Dominic's ladyfriend, Luna, is inclined to agree that it's pretty funny. Dominic himself seems to recall it more with rueful embarrassment than with horror, as well. This attracted some controversy, but quickly took a back seat to what followed.
- Later on we see Celesto Morgan involved in a fully consensual hookup with Rachel. A strip or two later he's wearing the kitty-ears and not looking pleased, but no rape occurs and nothing suggests Rachel made any attempts. Whatever the hell happened with Dominic probably didn't go beyond non-consensual dress-up.
- The protagonist of Something*Positive, Davan, was raped while in a drugged state by Kim. Though played for laughs, Kim is later shown accompanying Davan to a rape survivors' support group. The topic was also handled more maturely: When the subject of male rape is brought up, Davan recognizes that some men wouldn't be bothered by unsolicited sex, but they would have every right to be, as opposed to most proponents of male rape who say men would not and cannot be disturbed by a woman raping them. Kim also goes through therapy for issues, having apparently done it in the past to other men.
- Davan's rejection letters for bad plays in cartoon form: "Cap'n Hoot-Hoot says a better title for your play would be 'Rape-Rape: A Tale of Rapening'. Also, your next play should have a little less rape in it."
- In Girls with Slingshots, Candy attempts to rape Chris; this is played partly for laughs, though the character is portrayed as having done something at the very least tasteless.
- In the Book of Genesis Lot's daughters get him drunk to rape him. Holy Bibble plays this for incredibly squicky laughs.
- Seemingly played for laughs by Old Man Death in Girl Genius while reciting the story of how he met his wife.
- Max strongly implies that she has this in mind for Jamie in this Leftover Soup strip, but hopefully she's joking...
- Questionable Content's tenth comic had a discussion between Sarah and Faye about this trope, arguing " I think you would fulfill a fantasy shared by every shy, submissive boy on the planet. Rape away". Notably the the word "rape" has since visibly been replaced by the word "hump".
- Played for very uneasy laughs in a Something Awful Thanksgiving article that featured the author falling into a coma while at his Gonk acquaintance's house (he was so desperate to leave that he thought drinking bleach was a good idea). He goes on to describe his intense coma dreams where he has sex with everything from Psylocke (who "used her psychic powers to make him pee") to a zebra. In the middle of a Does This Remind You of Anything? sword forging scene he wakes up from the coma to discover Miss Gonk "cripple-fucking" him. It turns out she had told the hospital staff they were married and she wanted to consummate their relationship. And then you remember that this is semi-autobiographical....
- Sonic Shorts
- Amy: "Heeeeey Sonic, guess who lost their virginity! *chloroform* You did!"
- In Nfl Quarterbacks On Facebook, Tom Brady stated an unwritten rule in which he gets to sleep with the losing quarterback's wife/girlfriend whenever he wins, and tells them to get a wife/girlfriend if they don't have one. It backfired on him in the 2013 Week 15 convo, when after the Patriots lost to the Dolphins, Lauren Tannehill (Ryan Tannehill's wife) gets to sleep with Brady, with the roles reversed; Lauren gets to be the pitcher to Brady's catcher.
Lauren Tannehill: SO BITE THE PILLOW, PATSY McCHOKER. ‘CAUSE ME AND MY STRAP-ON “GOLIATH” ARE COMING IN DRY!
- Occurs in Family Guy with the use of shadows, in which a sex-starved Lois forces herself onto Peter (taken to abstinence, after being indoctrinated by an abstinence-only educational program). Doesn't take much for him to give in.
- In one episode, Meg was captured by criminals after her family sent her out to get Peter a sandwich while the house was still being robbed. Meg becomes obsessed with her captor in a very short period of time (given her desperation for a boyfriend) and tries to force herself on him. The robber is very clearly traumatized, and even goes so far to charge Meg with rape, which the police take her in for, instead of the robber for armed robbery.
- This also happened in "Lethal Weapons". Lois had taken up martial arts and as a consequence, becomes aggressive as hell. One night Peter tries to use the "headache" excuse, but Lois doesn't take no for an answer. The next morning Peter cries about it to Brian.
Peter: Last night, Lois was the MAN!
- In "Dial Meg For Murder", Meg, turned thuggish after being in prison, rapes Peter with a loofa.
- In ''Peter-assment" Peter's boss Angela sexually harasses him and tries to get him to have sex with her.
- Ed, Edd n Eddy: the played-for-laughs romantic pursuit of the eponymous Eds by the Kanker sisters is incredibly violent and completely unrequited, even in the context of a cartoon, and would be considered far less funny in today's society if the genders were reversed.
- The roles WERE reversed in one episode where the Eds (well, Double-D really) came up with the idea of using reverse psychology by feigning a similar over-the-top romantic interest in the Kankers in order to get them off their backs for good. It would have worked, too, except Eddy choked at the last minute, the Kankers caught on, and went right back to chasing the Eds.
- In The Movie after Eddy's brother turns out to be such a Jerkass that everyone in the cul-de-sac cheers on the Eds for knocking him out, the Kankers drag his unconscious body back into his house, and sexual harassment probably isn't something they'd be beyond using as "punishment".
- Fifi le Fume from Tiny Toon Adventures, who pursues reluctant boys with the same degree of enthusiasm that her predecessor pursued women, and the accompanying notion that her antics are a bit more acceptable for contemporary audiences because of her gender.
- Futurama, "Amazon Women In the Mood" involves Fry, Zapp Brannigan, and Kif being sentenced to "Death By Snoo Snoo" by burly muscular Amazons. Their response is a combination of cheers and groans of pain as they are locked in a room and the entire tribe systematically lines up to have their way with them. They are rescued (eventually) before their pelvises are crushed, and no lasting damage is done. (Note that Fry and Zapp don't seem to have any resistance to the idea itself until it starts really hurting; Kif, who does, manages to escape it, and is rescued by Amy.)
- "How Hermes Requisitioned His Groove Back" had Inspector Morgan Proctor come to inspect Planet Express. She found Fry's slovenliness incredibly hot, because she spent all her time with neat freaks. She was visibly giving him favor for sleeping with her, and he eventually tried to end the relationship, but made the mistake of sweeping items off a desk in anger. She grins and leaps on him. ("Dirty boooy!") Basically, they do every single thing Sensitivity Training warns against, though gender-flipped from the expected. It's played for both Comedy and Drama.
- Lrrr is raped by a woman in one episode. To put this in context, Lrrr is a ten foot tall planetary overlord alien who eats human sized beings, and the woman who assaults him (she has a fetish for aliens) is a normal human who saw him at Comic-Con.
- An episode of John Callahan's Quads had the hippy girlfriend of the quadriplegic protagonist have sex with him while he was asleep, in the episode where he sold his soul to the devil to be able to get it up. He is somewhat distressed, but this is more because he's been having nightmares of going to hell and she doesn't seem to notice.
- In The Venture Bros. episode "Dr. Quymn, Medicine Woman", the title character's twin daughters Nancy and Drew think that Dean is cute so they try to sleep with him. However Dean has a crush on Triana Orpheus, is generally naive, and does not want to sleep with them, so they pin him down and force him to. Luckily for Dean, Hank called for help.
- In The Simpsons episode "The Ziff Who Came to Dinner", and arguably "Strong Arms of the Ma".
- Subtly implied that this happens at the end of the Woody Woodpecker cartoon A Fine Feathered Frenzy. Gorgeous Gal who had a sexy voice aggressively attempted to seduce Woody Woodpecker but he was turned off by her weight and age. Woody tried to get away but she eventually dragged him into a submarine. Next a priest popped out of the sailing vessel and hung a 'JUST MARRIED' sign around the hatch. The submarine sailed off with cans on strings attached to it to end the film.
- A Running Gag in Archer, in which Cheryl does this to Cyril once, then uses the threat of blackmail to force him to sleep with her anytime she wants. Pam also ends up raping Cyril while he is passed out from blood loss and being pumped full of heroin.
Rape of Men by Men See also Double Standard: Rape, Male on Male
- Red Ears: Employed occasionally. For instance, one comic featured a tubby guy getting exercise from his female trainer by having her strip nude and run around the room on the first day saying he can have sex with her if he can catch her. However, on the second day the trainer is replaced by a Scary Black Man who tells him to start running before he catches him.
- There are jokes about a group of explorers (typically either two or three) venturing too far into a tribal territory, then being brought to a chief and being forced to choose between chi-chi or death. Afraid to die, the first explorer chose chi-chi, which as it turned out involved the tribal men standing in line to rape him (if there are three people, the process repeats for the second person, who dreads it but would much rather not die). The last explorer, disturbed by what he saw, feared for his dignity and chose death. Upon which the chief would reply, "Very well, death by chi-chi!"
- Heavily implied in Louie Season 1. While visiting the dentist, Louie experiences an anesthesia-induced hallucination where he has a banana placed into his mouth and, when he suddenly awakens from the said hallucination, his dentist is shown hurriedly tucking in his shirt and zipping up his pants. Possibly a reference to Real Life anesthetics that can cause vivid sexual dreams, which have led to similar accusations and are a big reason (besides the obvious) why no one is ever allowed to be in a room alone with an anesthetized patient without a witness to verify their good behavior.
- Brit Com series Dark Ages has the character Redwald captured by vikings twice. He is returned in a sack each time, upon which he's asked if he's been treated "mmm... rudely"; he confirms it each time with specific mention of sobriquets like "the Cucumber" and "the Twelve-Inch".
- In The Vicar of Dibley, Geraldine tells Alice one of her trademark jokes. As usual, Alice doesn't get it.
Geraldine: Superman's feeling a bit bored because Batman and Spiderman are on a scuba diving course, so he doesn't have anyone to play with. So he's flying around. Suddenly he sees Wonder Woman spreadeagled naked on top of a tall building. He's always fancied Wonder Woman so he thinks now's my chance and he swoops down and faster than a speeding bullet does the business and then he flies off again. A moment later Wonder Woman says "what was that?" Then the Invisible Man climbs off her and says "I don't know but it hurt a lot".Alice: I don't get it.Geraldine: No, I didn't expect you would.Alice: Well, you seem to be suggesting that Superman committed homosexual rape upon The Invisible Man. I just don't find that funny. In fact, you're besmirching the reputation of two of the finest superheroes this world has ever known. I mean, I've never actually met them. Well, I might have met The Invisible Man. I wouldn't know. He's invisible. I've heard that they are both really nice guys. Frankly, I think you should be ashamed of yourself. Goodbye, Vicar. (leaves)Geraldine: ...Prude!
- Jam had examples of this in addition to most other variants of the trope. In one sketch, a woman talks about her favorite method of foreplay, which is for her husband (who is sitting next to her grinning) to come home crying and tell her he was raped by "A gang of street poofs." In another, a couple realise their young son didn't come home from school, but think that he "decided to stay at school overnight" and don't do anything about it. Even when he's still missing weeks later and they learn that he was seen getting into someone's car, they decide he is probably "staying with a friend." The police eventually find their son's body and inform them that he was raped and murdered - which the parents think is "taking it a bit too far" and resolve to "have a word" with the neighbor suspected of the murder.
- One sketch on Mad TV featured a unique form of aversion therapy to help smokers kick their habit: having two hillbillies dressed as giant cigarettes show up and violate the terrified patient.
- The culmination of the Jeffrey Lewis song "Williamsburg Will Oldham Horror."
"Then I got to thinking, 'Maybe it wasn't really Will Oldham.' Though he did hold my arms and fuck me, just like Will sings in 'A Sucker's Evening'."
- He Almost Looks Like You by Rich Hall, a song inspired by the prison rape experiences of his ex-con alter-ego, Otis Lee Crenshaw.
- One sidequest in Final Fantasy VII features Cloud picking a room in a brothel to visit with a prostitute, only to have one of his hallucinatory episodes and pass out. Text comes up with various sound effects, Cloud shouts in pain, Cloud's HP/MP is restored, and then he comes to with the burly male prostitute Mukki lying on top of him. Cloud's response is very laid back and he actually looks directly at the camera and shrugs to end the scene.
- Cyril is knocked out from an OD on heroin and then taken advantage of by everyone who finds his body, be it Pam, or Ray.
- Archer's best friend (who was secretly in love with Archer... not in a gay way, totally once had his way with Archer after Archer passed out. This revelation, while traumatizing, was played for dark humor.
- The Boondocks: Tom is deathly afraid of this, despite happily sending members of his own race to this fate. He gets over this in his awesome Character Development in Season 3 when, while stuck in prison during a riot, he stands up to infamous rapist the Booty Warrior.
- Implied in the 1952 Looney Tunes "Fowl Weather": Sylvester gives himself a Paper-Thin Disguise as a hen and attracts the attention of a rooster.
Rooster: I like you, baby! You're different! (drags Sylvester off) You'll be my favorite!
- Also a subversion as the rooster isn't particularly fooled and simply forces Sylvester to hatch a hand grenade.
- The Robot Chicken episode More Blood, More Chocolate features a visit by a Rape Ghost. Guess what he does in his spare time!
- Season 8 of Beavis And Butthead had a music video segment where the duo is talking about the time a classmate killed himself, and Beavis implies that the grief counselor drugged and raped him (though he's too stupid to realize that's what happened). Even Butthead is shocked by this.
- South Park has played male-on-male rape for laughs a few times ("Cartman Joins NAMBLA," "Simpsons Already Did It," "Cartman Sucks," "The China Probrem"), but they later satirized jokes about the Penn State child sex abuse scandal, in which football coach Jerry Sandusky got busted for molesting dozens of boys. The South Park episode "The Poor Kid" introduced Mr. Adams, a Department of Child Disservices worker who enjoys awkwardly shoehorning jokes about the scandal. Cartman calls him out on how unfunny and uncreative the jokes are: "All you’re doing is taking something topical and revamping old Catholic jokes!"
Rape of Women by Women See also Double Standard: Rape, Female on Female
Anime and Manga
- Morinaga Miruku seems to like nonconsensual lesbian sex, since in her manga Bunny's Road she introduces Kurahashi, who works as a maid in a bunny-themed night club. Kurahashi gets "punished" by her female boss every time she makes a mistake—which happens quite often. Mind you, this involves the use of a carrot. Later Kurahashi even gets assaulted by her own trainee, and this is all played for laughs.
- Makoto from Chocotto Sister already walks on thin ice with her groping of Chitose's breasts, but she really crosses the line when she forcefully removes Yurika's dress.
- In Cosplay Complex, lesbian pedophile Jenny tries to sneak into the bed of the Token Mini-Moe Athena to sleep with her. However she ended up in the bed of Chako's mom, Sachiko who says that she is a lonely widow that is glad to have some company in bed. She then rapes the now reluctant teenager.
- Another episode had a near miss as Ranko the head of a rival cosplay club and the defending champion cornered Reika in a storage room and began to molest her.
- In Demon King Daimao Sai was given some medicine by Fujiko that was supposed to make him nicer and not become the demon king; however it is really a Love Potion which will cause him to be loyal to her. Kena then took the medicine and cooked it into rice which she later served to a big gang that was attacking Sai.
- Excel Saga the anime has the infamous 26th episode, which involves Excel and Hyatt switching bodies and individually winding up in a love hotel together (for entirely different reasons). Excel (in Hyatt's body) proceeds to sexually assault Hyatt's breasts (in Excel's body) in plain view for a whole thirty seconds or so. (And that's not even the weirdest stuff that happens in that episode...)
- In episode 16, Excel is violently raped off-screen by the robot Ropponmatsu II, and it's played as over-the-top slapstick comedy.
- Chapter 19 of Girl Friends by Morinaga Miruku starts with a non-canon two page gag involving its two female main characters, Akko and Mari. Mari wakes up one day and finds a cat bringing her a suddenly four inch tall Akko. They decide to go to school that day by having Akko ride between Mari's breasts. Unfortunately, there is a huge crowd in the train and Akko is starting to get crushed. Akko decides at that point that she's safer down below. First cue some noises from Mari, then cut to the scene at school where a traumatized Mari insists that she's never taking Akko to school again with Akko insisting she had nowhere else to hide.
- Girls Bravo has Kosame all but rape Kiriei in episode 4. When she happens across her in the hall of Fukuyama's mansion, she coerces Kirie into the bedroom at gunpoint and shoves her onto the bed. Then strips down to her panties and straddles her. But she gets trampled by one of the wandering spirits Lisa released earlier, which allowed Kirie to escape.
- Reika from Goshuushou-sama Ninomiya-kun might be a huge pervert with a love of watching gay men but she herself is straight with a giant crush on Shungo. Unfortunately, his sister Ryoko does not believe her and regularly molests her despite Reika's protests.
- The abuse of Mikuru by Haruhi◊ in Haruhi Suzumiya may not be rape in a strictly technical sense, but it is openly sexual◊ and obviously very disturbing to the victim. After one such day of molestation, Mikuru even asks Kyon if he'll take her if she becomes "ruined for marriage".
- In Haiyore! Nyarko-san, after Nyarko is defeated in a duel against Kuuko in episode 2 (first season), Kuuko has her tied to a bed and starts undressing her. Nyarko fights her back before it goes any further. Nyarko gives as good as she gets; see under Rape of Men by Women.
- In Kamen no Maid Guy Naeka receives a letter from a secret admirer and spends the episode debating whether to go through with meeting him. Kogarashi warns her about love and that if she meets him she should be willing to go all the way. However when she goes to meet the mystery man "he" turns out to be a Schoolgirl Lesbian Stalker with a Crush named Saki. She tries to run away but learns too late what the maid guy meant by "going all the way" as he traps her.
- Sousou from Koihime†Musou has the habit of forcing girls into sex with her. She is shown succeeding on at least one occasion—and then there are her efforts to get into Kannu's pants.
- In Kyonyu Hunter (D-Cup Hunter) by Yasunaga Kouichirou, a flat-chested girl is dumped by the stupid guy she wanted as her boyfriend because, as he admits himself, she had everything a man could wish, except boobs. Her revenge? Dress up as a super-heroine, attack big-breasted women and subject them to Humiliation Conga just to eliminate the competition (although the premise drifts to just humiliating busty women who get on her nerves).
- In volume eleven of Love Hina, Motoko is tied down and raped off-panel by Keitarou's sister Kanako.
- In Minami-ke, in the final minutes of the final episode of the first season, Hayami drinks too much "special imported juice" and assaults Kana (we don't get to see the results, but it's implied she succeeds). The whole thing is played entirely for laughs.
- The running gag of Miyuki-chan in Wonderland has its title character getting sexually harassed, stripped, molested and nearly raped by other female characters. Mind you this is All Just a Dream... Or Was It a Dream?.
- In Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, Yuuto's troublemaking Hard-Drinking Party Girl roommates Ruko and Yukari at least go way over the line "playing with" Shiina when she comes over to ask him on a date and he's not there. The episode ends with her trapped under a Scenery Censor table with them doing something to her, as she screams "Sto-plea... stop, ah! Yuuto! Hurry, come back!"
- In Queen's Blade Leina gets groped by Echidna twice, the first was in a hot oil wrestling match, the second was Echinda rubbing sap on her.
- Aoi from Rizelmine tried to use Kyouko's mind control helmet to get Ryunosuke to sleep with her. However, he is not on the other end by the time she gets the remote and she ends up getting raped herself by three girls and a dog. She later ends up in a relationship with one of them.
- In the final episode of Sabagebu!, the other girls give a Bound and Gagged Momoka to Urara as a birthday present. The last scene of the show has Momoka, naked and tied up with her mouth taped shut, sitting in a bath tub while a naked Urara dives in next to her. She cries out "Itadakimasu!" before the camera pans to the skyline.
- Shinra in They Are My Noble Masters is constantly raping and molesting her younger sister Miyu, adding incest on top of it.
- Kaoru from Zettai Karen Children is seen to harass Oboro on several occasions. Sure, Kaoru is only ten years old, but it still gets rather poignant when you realize that she basically is a human weapon of mass destruction, so Oboro would not really be able to defend herself if push came to shove.
- In the fifth volume of Empowered, Ocelotina binds poor Emp with duct tape and spanks her during an interview, with the intention of putting it up on her website as a paid download.
- This isn't the first time Ocelotina has done something like this. Before deciding to take on a superhero identity herself, the girl who'd become Ocelotina decided to kidnap Emp and hold her for ransom. Of course, since Emp's powers come from her suit, she had to be naked save for her mask... and it was fairly strongly implied that Ocelotina engaged in some very intimate touching.
- In a fortunately uncharacteristic passage in Love and Rockets, we discover that on the evening when Daffy first met Maggie and Hopey, they set her up to get raped by Depraved Bisexual Lois (with a nail-studded baseball bat, no less) and only rescued her at the last minute.
- Touhou fandom has something of an obsession with this trope. Ranging from the cheery Fan Vid Touhou Sweets! ~The Cruel Sisters and the Suffering Maid~ about cosplay and This and That (very addictive), to the constant portrayals of Yuuka as a rape machine, it is clear that Gensoukyou can be a scary place for those that aren't careful.
Rape of Women by Men
Anime and Manga
- Air Gear has Tomita Mari who keeps thinking she's about to get raped by a student, and Emily Adachi, who has a running gag of pretending she's being sexually assaulted when she takes her jacket off. Both of these are played for laughs.
- Bakemonogatari: otherwise-morally-pure Araragi makes a point of thoroughly molesting Hachikuji as a form of greeting and as payback for her being a brat. The fact that she's actually a ghost may or may not help. It's treated mostly as playful teasing going a little too far.
- In the sequel anime he stops and Hachikuji tells him off for not realizing she secretly liked it. She notes in the same episode that she considers herself an adult in a child body.
- Even though he never raped any one Lovable Sex Maniac Fukuyama from Girls Bravo (the brother of the above mentioned Lisa) deserves to be mentioned for all of his gropes of girls' breasts, and peeping on them the only reason he has not been arrested seems to be his money.
- Haruhi Suzumiya gives a subversion. In order to get a new computer from the computer club, Haruhi takes a few carefully orchestrated photographs making it look like the president was assaulting Mikuri. When the other members of the club (who were all right there the entire time) say they'll vouch for him, she just says she'll claim they all gang-raped the poor girl. While there's no actual rape, the whole thing is definitely Played for Laughs. Especially when Haruhi goes back to the computer club and makes them run a LAN line to her club room.
- Early chapters of Lupin III bordered on this and "Not If They Enjoyed It" Rationalization. The anime toned things down substantially.
- In chapter 253 of Mahou Sensei Negima!, Paru creates a temporarily golem clone of Negi to help ease many of the non-Pactio'd girls into the practice (as the version of the ritual she tells them involves a 'deep kiss')). Said clone ends up rather...aggressively kissing Akira in a way that's purposely rather...suggestive.
- Male Maze in Maze Megaburst Space forces his way onto girls several times in the manga; quite often such girls awake next morning sharing bed with a very embarrassed female Maze.
- Nerima Daikon Brothers, episode 2: A gonk-ish Korean Pachinko owner tries to rape Mako, all set to a daunting musical number with Lyrical Dissonance.
- Averted in Ranma ½. When the entire school gets stuck on an island, all the male high school students eat a certain fruit that makes them believe any girl they see is their newlywed wife. Ranma is female at that point with no hot water in sight. The guys start talking about how they want to do what all couples do on their honeymoon and when they pin down Ranma, he assumes the worst is about to happen. Turns out that all they want to do is get tan, take goofy pictures, and feed her like a particularly lovesick lover might.
- In The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Mina, Quatermain, and Nemo investigate a mysterious series of pregnancies at a girls' school (they chalk it up to the Holy Spirit). Turns out it's The Invisible Man raping the students. Elements of it are Played for Laughs, particularly Polly's reaction.
- This happens in Harvey Kurtzman's Little Annie Fanny all the time. The protagonist is presented as an eternally innocent, buxom, blond, shapely young girl who is completely oblivious to the men who constantly try to take advantage of her, which tends to happen rather frequently.
- Auntie Lee's Meat Pies managed to milk some Black Comedy out of Rape and Revenge, of all things, by combining it with cannibalism. Pretty young Magnolia's first on-screen victim is a criminal who's just murdered a priest and taken his clothes when she picks him up in her car. He soon gets her off to a secluded spot and has his way with her, only to have her kill him and stuff him into the trunk of her car immediately afterward. When she gets home, her Auntie Lee seems to be seriously chiding her for taking such a stupid risk in picking up a hitchhiker until Magnolia playfully complains that she couldn't help herself: how could she possibly hold off such a big guy who must have weighed two hundred pounds? Auntie Lee immediately perks up when she hears just how much long pork on the hoof her pretty young niece has just scored. Heavily implied is that Magnolia really could have killed her rapist at any time, and just decided to let him finish having his way with her before she had her way with him.
- Lust In the Dust. Rosie (played by Divine) is gang-raped by a group of desperados - or seemingly so, as the scene shifts to where Divine is still begging for more, while the desperados are begging her to lay off.
Rosie: (sighing) What a bunch of deadbeats.
- Crank contains a scene where the main character, who will die without an adrenaline rush, sexually assaults his girlfriend in broad daylight on a crowded public street. She screams and tries unsuccessfully to fight him off; they gather a mixed-gender crowd that watches but doesn't try to help her in any way. Then she decides she wants it half-way through.
- Elizabeth and the Monster in Young Frankenstein, then veers into Loving Force territory.
- Pavi Largo from Repo! The Genetic Opera practically embodies this trope. As one of the creators put it, "Of course, in a movie like Repo, the comic relief is a murderer and a rapist." If the rapes weren't enough for you, when he's finished with the women, he cuts off their faces and wears them as masks.
- Planned to occur in Blazing Saddles, of all places:
Hedley Lamarr: What are we going to do about Rock Ridge?
Taggart: I got it, I got it! We'll work up a Number 6 on 'em.
Hedley Lamarr: Number 6? I'm afraid I'm not familiar with that one.
Taggart: That's where we go a-ridin' into town, a-whampin' and whompin' every living thing that moves within an inch of its life! Except the women folks of course.
Hedley Lamarr: You spare the women?
Taggart: Nah, we rape the shit out of them at the Number 6 Dance later on!
- Later in the movie though, we learn it didn't quite go as planned:
Pastor (addressing the town): Sheriff murdered, crops burnt, people stampeding, and cattle raped.
- And later still, as Hedley is assembling his army of villains to wipe out the town:
Applicant: Rape, murder, arson and rape.
Hedley: You said rape twice.
Applicant: I like rape.
- Later in the movie though, we learn it didn't quite go as planned:
- In History of the World Part I, "Pawn jumps queen." "Knight jumps queen." "GAAAANNG BAAANG!!!!....It's good to be the king!"
- Early in Rush Hour 3, Carter (Chris Tucker) is on traffic duty and arrests two attractive women. While they are handcuffed and bent over the hood of their car, he calls Lee and essentially offers to let the girls off the hook if they go on a date with the two. It's a perfect storm of Unfortunate Implications about Black men, the LAPD, and this very trope.
- In Overboard, a rich bitch loses her memory and is persuaded by a handyman she'd been mean to that she is his wife. As this is billed as a romantic comedy, we're encouraged to enjoy the joke being on her and root for the handyman in what is presented as a harmless revenge as he makes her cook and clean and be mother to his brood of unruly sons. Naturally, we're not encouraged to ponder too deeply on the fact that he's also having her sleep with him. Nor does our heroine apparently think any the less of him when she regains her memory. Cue happy ever after...
- Although he did make a possibly not too serious attempt to sleep with her straight off, once she made it clear she wasn't comfortable with the idea he backed off (and, er, made her sleep on the couch). They didn't sleep together until some way into the deception, after they'd genuinely falling for each other. Of course, sleeping with a woman who's got amnesia and thinks she's your wife is pretty dodgy whatever way you look at it.
- In Idiocracy, it is repeatedly stated that Rita is going to be gang-raped if Joe/Not Sure stops vouching for her as his "girlfriend."
- The film Meet the Applegates deals with a family of giant amazonian bugs who disguise themselves as humans in order to infiltrate human society, then their teenage daughter is raped and impregnated by the school's most popular boy. The rape is played for laughs.
- The 1960s sex comedy What's New Pussycat? has Peter Sellers as a deranged Viennese psychiatrist who bemoans his unrequited desire for a patient: "Every time she sees me, she screams - because every time she sees me, I attack her!"
- In the Pythonesque Yellowbeard, the title character often grabs nearby women and drags them off camera to rape them noisily, and it's implied every time that both parties enjoyed the experience.
- Strongly implied in The War of the Roses: Michael Douglas' character chases his wife to the attic, pins and forcibly kisses her, and is apparently intent on raping her. She stops struggling and begins responding in kind. The camera focuses on him making "that face" of pleasure as he lays back - only to do an Eye Take and start screaming. Cut to her dragging him to the open trapdoor and dropping him several feet to the floor below on his back.
- The Italian 70s comedy Amici Miei has one of these — an underage girl not only is raped (and impregnated) by an older sleazy co-worker, she's also yelled at, ridiculed and humiliated by her father and her father's friends because of this ("Puttana!" which means "You whore!"). To make things worse, the girl was heavily implied to be mentally challenged. When said father then goes to confront the rapist, he finds out he's a huge menacing guy, which makes it all really funny because he can't kick his ass, so the rapist gets off scot-free. Most likely a case of Values Dissonance, as the film is rife with sexist and other politically incorrect jokes.
- Several Sarah Silverman jokes, including her Crowning Moment of Funny in The Aristocrats, as well as her line "I was raped by a doctor. Which is a very bittersweet experience for a Jewish girl."
- Milked bone dry in the hopelessly dated 1966 "adult" comedy The Swinger. A running gag involving Robert Coote's dirty old man character has him selecting a series of pretty young secretaries, apparently to rape them. We later find out nothing happened but lots of chasing and attempted seduction, but still... Later on, Tony Franciosa takes Ann-Margret to a sleazy motel and chases her around the bed, trying to force himself on her.
- Inverted in The Other Guys. An extremely depressing Irish ballad is sung by one of the protagonists about an Irish soldier's love for a girl. Returning from war, he finds that five British soldiers "had their way with her". A resounding chorus clarifies that it was consensual. Most of the humor comes from how it's sung, but consent is the punchline.
- A number of Frankie Boyle jokes, aiming for Crosses the Line Twice.
- In Once Upon a Time in America, Noodles rapes the woman during the diamond merchant heist - turns out she's a nymphomaniac and encourages him personally whilst pretending to resist out loud. The comedic effect is played up with a one-liner: the other guys are doing all the work while Noodles is engaged, then when the robbery is finished Max asks, "You coming? We're going...".
- Higher Learning: A college freshman girl is brought along to a rush party by some other girls and encouraged to drink alcohol until she stinks of the stuff. She then retires to the dormitory's upstairs room with an Affably Evil fratboy, where they lay on the bed and he reaches under her dress and lowers her panties. As they go into it, the girl starts to have second thoughts and urges the boy to stop for a moment and put on a condom; he ignores her. After struggling and screaming a bit, the girl breaks free and flees down the stairs and out of the dormitory, with the rapist awkwardly pursuing her with his trousers around his ankles. The mostly male crowd, not understanding what has just happened, laugh and applaud. It's clear the crowd is laughing at the rapist rather than the victim, but it's still uncomfortably inappropriate humor in the midst of a tragic scene.
- The Knack....And How to Get It: A Swinging London comedy directed by Richard Lester. A Country Mouse, played by Rita Tushingham, wrongly accuses a nerdy school teacher, played by Michael Crawford, of raping her. He is extremely flattered and finally becomes a real man as a result of the false accusation (which is implied to be wishful thinking on the part of the girl).
- A Finnish black comedy, Men cannot be raped, deals with a female rape victim who runs into all the usual secondary traumas of skeptical police and disbelieving courts. After her attacker is acquitted, she gains vengeance by abducting him and subjecting him to sexual humiliation. When he brings a case against her, he too is humiliated by learning how rape victims are treated, especially a man who is wuss enough to let a woman dominate him, and then to complain about it afterwards. (This is a Finnish black comedy).His case is dismissed with a cursory policeman's comment of "Men cannot be raped", is, "don't waste police time".
- In This Is the End, Emma Watson turns up at the house in a traumatised state, and the men all start to look after her. Unfortunately, one of them tries to establish rules of conduct in the hope of making Emma feel comfortable, since being a woman on her own in a house full of men at the end of the world could make her feel insecure and that they were going to rape her, but the others turn on him, since he was the only one who even thought about rape, and they begin to accuse him of being a rapist. Emma, in another room, overhears them yelling about raping her, grabs an axe, takes all of their food at axe point and leaves.
- A very controversial scene in Avengers: Age of Ultron has Iron Man joking about reinstating "Primae Noctis" if he is able to lift Thor's hammer.
- In Stroker Ace, serial womanizer Stroker Ace sets his sights on Pembrook Feeney, a classic example of Incorruptible Pure Pureness who has never slept with a man before. His advances consistently fail, so he decides to get her drunk and take advantage of her in that state. He succeeds, but she passes out before they can do the deed. After undressing her, during which it is clear that Stroker is at least trying to control himself, Stroker comments that he could ravish her as she was, and she would never find out. Ultimately averted, as Stroker confesses to her that nothing happened the morning after.
- A beautiful young woman goes to the gynecologist, and the doctor is immediately overcome with desire for her. He begins caressing her skin and asks "Do you know what I'm doing?" She replies "Yes, you're checking my skin for rashes, etc." He begins feeling up her boobs and asks "Do you know what I'm doing now?" She nonchalantly replies, "Yes, you're checking my breasts for lumps." Overcome with lust, he climbs up on the table and enters her, saying "Do you know what I'm doing... now?" She looks him in the eyes and says "Yes, getting herpes."
- Who's the one woman in the world anyone can have their way with? Sleeping Beauty!
- The novel Money by Martin Amis features a scene where the main character tries to rape his gold digging girlfriend but is so drunk and unenthusiastic he gives up, just before a kick to the nuts floors him.
- The comedy book Curious Pleasures (a glossary of unusual fetishes, ostensibly written by a Victorian scientist) mentions a lady who told her maid to find a man to pretend to break into her house and rape her. Shortly afterwards, she found a man breaking into her house, and happily allowed him to have his way. The next day, the maid told her that she hadn't been able to find a suitable participant yet, and the guy had been a real burglar, "although it should be noted that her complaints commenced only after this discovery."
- In Interesting Times:
- Cohen: I've got to go and have a talk with Old Vincent. Not that there's anything wrong with him, at all. It's just that his memory's bad. We had a bit of trouble on the way over. I keep telling him, it's rape the women and set fire to the houses.Rincewind: Rape? That's not very—Cohen: He's eighty-seven. Don't go and spoil an old man's dreams.
- The entire plot of Donatien Alphonse Francois de Sade's novel Justine. Her constant life of being raped is placed in deliberate contrast to how pious and innocent she is. The typical reaction is more negative than anything else.
- Voltaire used this on occasion in his stories. For example in L'Ingénu, the hero, (a Frenchman raised by Native Americans) believes himself married to the heroine and thus sneaks into her bedroom to enforce his rights and her fighting him off is poor behavior in his culture. Also, Candide fits both this and rape of men by men by having a lot of humor that Crosses the Line Twice about several female characters and one male one being the victim of multiple gang rapes and occasions of the Scarpia Ultimatum.
- Done in a comedic, theatrical rendition of Candide where a narrator tells the audience that a female character is raped. The extras playing soldiers shadow her, then toss her in the air at which point she screams out. The narrator then says just, "Repeatedly." She's tossed up again, and her next shout is not exactly... displeased... with what's going on.
- In Robert A. Heinlein's The Number of the Beast, newlyweds Zebediah and Dejah Thoris Carter (Yes, really) are travelling to Another Dimension in a flying car (long story) when DeeTee complains that her husband (who is busy piloting the vehicle at the time!) isn't being amorous enough. He then claims that he'd rape her repeatedly, if his seatbelt weren't in the way.
- The writer John Barth likes this trope a lot. In his novel Letters, a plot about a serial rapist drugging and impregnating women is played for laughs. Rape is also treated lightly at best in books like The Last Voyage of Somebody the Sailor and Giles Goat-Boy. There's also a lot of it in The Sot Weed Factor, but that could be attributed to the fact that it's basically a Spiritual Successor to Candide (with some of Fielding's Joseph Andrews thrown in).
- In the prologue to Academ's Fury of Codex Alera, a high-ranking knight is repeatedly advising that the First Lord take a concubine to bed to relieve some stress. When the First Lord says he won't dishonor his wife by doing so, and that said wife won't go to bed with him herself, the knight bluntly suggests he lace her wine with a drug and "split her like a plow." The First Lord's only response is to dryly note that the knight is such a romantic.
- In M*A*S*H it is explained that Trapper's nickname came because he raped his prom date on a train, because he wanted to try "it" in a train. When a security agent caught them, she screamed "he trapped me!" Hilarity ensued, and half of New England knows the story.
- In Cider With Rosie, Laurie Lee's memoir about his childhood and teenage years in Cotswold, England. He and a gang of wanna-be tough guys plan to gang rape a simple-minded girl who often wanders the countryside alone writing religious verses on trees with crayons. Lee and his friends are clearly not serious about going through with the rape—they secretly hope she doesn't show up as they lie in wait, and when she does she easily drives them off when she hits them with her box of crayons.
Live Action TV
- An unfortunately famous example was an episode of the French comedy shorts Un gars Une fille. The show told the daily lives of the constantly-bickering Jean et Alexandra. This episode had Alexandra getting her head stuck into the opening of her washing-machine. Cue Crowning Moment of Funny with Jean mocking her. But it didn't stop there. We actually saw Jean untying his belt and putting his knees on the floor. Then the screen fades to black, which in the show generally indicates the moment where you are supposed to laugh... The spectators didn't. At all.
- You Rang, M'Lord? has as one of its mostly positive characters an aristocrat who has impregnated five of his previous maids and has intentions upon the sixth. In several episodes, she hides from him in terror, and in one he actually manages to jump her (the episode ends there, but apparently no actual rape resulted.) Then again, it's also played for laughs when he's successfully raped by the woman he's supposed to marry (and no, he did not enjoy it.)
- Keeping Up Appearances often ends with Hyacinth being chased by some amorous old man; it is supposed to be funny because she is such an annoying, overbearing character.
- Early episodes of Mash had attempted rapings of Margaret being played for laughs. Even the writers want to pretend they never happened.
- MA Dtv once did an "update" spoof Laverne and Shirley 2000 in which Laverne and Shirley are portrayed as two lonely sex-starved women who get into some trouble after shooing out Lenny and Squiggy when a couple of punkish-looking guys show up and offer them Roofies as a "party" drug. Before they can have their way with the passed-out women, however, Lenny and Squiggy make their return and use some stolen guns to kill off the would-be rapists. Cutting to later, we see the guys recounting the story of their rescue to the gals after they've woken up. Then Laverne praises the guys and remarks that while she and Shirley were passed out "...you didn't take advantage of us! ...Did you?" Lenny and Squiggy start shifting uncomfortably in their seats and glancing around the room nervously, and then say in unison "Well..." and the show closes out with Laverne and Shirley fretting, albeit not altogether unhappily.
- The Attempted Rape of Grace on The Secret Life of the American Teenager was captured by a nearby building's security camera. The news station kept playing it like it was a blooper reel, and the general population found it to be funny too. Apparently the "humor" was supposed to be that Grace bowed her head and said a quick prayer before picking up a broken bottle and defending herself, or the laugh was supposed to be that her friend Ricky came rushing in to help her and he wasn't wearing a shirt. Either way, the reaction of most viewers was that it wasn't funny.
- During the 1995 season of Saturday Night Live, Mark McKinney (of The Kids in the Hall fame) played a gangly, braces-wearing babysitter getting a ride home from the kid's father (played by Chris Elliot), who's attracted to her and keeps giving her Zimas until she's barely conscious. It then cuts to him cackling like a madman in jail about doing it again and... and the scene ends. The audience was dead silent throughout the entire skit and pretty much sums up why that entire year (one of many) was bad and why Lorne Michaels described that season as being the closest he's ever come to being fired.
- The Are You Being Served? episode "The Erotic Dreams of Mrs. Slocombe" has a rape-y ending where Mr. Humphries is overwhelmed with uncharacteristic heterosexual urges and jumps Miss Brahms in the middle of a ballet. The episode ends right there and you're left with the impression that Mr. Humphries impulsively rogered Miss Brahms, who rarely takes kindly to ungentlemanly sexual advances.
- In the season five episode of 30 Rock "The Fabian Strategy" we witness a pretty graphic example of marital rape of Paula Hornberger at the hands of her husband Pete. Pete is listing all that he can do with his newfound free time to Liz (i.e. going to the gym) and mentions towards the end that he even got to make love to his wife, but "she was still asleep so I didn't have to be gentle." Cue a cutaway close-up shot of Paula's face as she's snoring and being shaken up and down. It cuts back to Liz, horrified, claiming "That's one of the most upsetting things I've ever imagined!" to which Pete responds with "Are you sure? Think about it again," grinning like a sociopath. Cut back to the rape, but with even more intense shaking. Liz responds with "Yes!" She is still horrified.
- Mr G., the over-excited drama teacher in Summer Heights High performs improv with his class, and starts off with: "Help, grandma's just been raped!"
- Jam has at least two. One sketch features a couple arguing about what seems to have been an affair on the part of the husband. The wife is relieved when he reveals that he wasn't having an affair with the woman—he was raping her. Then there's the "sex for houses" sketch, wherein a couple trying to buy a house agree to have sex with the seller 12 times in exchange for lowering the price. But when a new offer causes the seller to add more sessions to the arrangement, the couple ultimately decides to let him use the husband's mentally challenged sister in their place.
- Married... with Children:
- Although most examples of this series are in the Female on Male category, they managed to include a Male on Female example as well - in an episode where Al grills burgers, the prospect of such a manly activity (grilling, finally eating meat) made him so horny he grabbed Peggy against her will a couple of times and dragged her off-screen to rape her. Like the Gender Flipped version, this is played as just as much laughs.
- Also, while Bud was often the victim of this, he was the aggressor in one episode. Seeking revenge on a girl who's been stringing him along, Bud convinces the guy she's really interested in (and who could care less about her) to go along with his plan—entice the girl into meeting him under the bleachers for a round of quickie sex. Later, the girl is seen emerging from the bleachers, adjusting her clothes, apparently completely unaware—thanks to the darkness—that she just had sex with Bud, who the audience soon sees coming out a few minutes after she did.
- A flashback on Scrubs explaining why Dr Cox and Jordan don't go on couple dates any more shows Creepy Swinger Doctor and his wife slipping them both roofies, and announcing "It's party time!" when they're unconscious.
Jordan: I think we should give them another chance.
- Barney Miller, Season 4 Episode 15, titled "Rape". Here, a woman comes into the police station distraught and says she's been raped. The husband, and, to a great extent, Barney, don't understand what the big deal is, assuming that it would be impossible for a rape to happen inside a marriage, since marriage implies a loving relationship and a greater sense of "consent". The District Attorney, a woman, and Lt. Dietrich, *do* understand the gravity of the situation (and just how wrong the rape was), and the husband's lawyer, though agreeing with Linden and the husband, wants the case to go ahead because he wants the fame associated with it. Dietrich, Lt. Harris and the DA spend the rest of the episode explaining how classless the husband was and how he needs to treat women with more respect. The episode ultimately concludes by treating the incident as if it was "just another marriage disagreement", with the husband agreeing with Harris that he was just uncouth and was just clueless about how to treat women properly (which raises the question about how he got married in the first place), learning, through the experience, just how to do it properly, causing his wife to forgive him and drop the whole matter. Perhaps the only reason why the episode works is due to Values Dissonance (social inequity, though improving, still had quite a bit of work to do when the episode aired in 1978)- it's doubtful now that such a scenario, with society's greater understanding of the real impact of rape, even in marriage, could be played for laughs today.
- Fresh Meat, a recent Channel 4 Sit-Com about first year college students, played with this. Through a convoluted series of events, one of the characters fears he may have raped a girl the night before (though it's made clear he didn't). Though rape is never played for laughs, his attempts to clarify what actually happened are.
- The William Hartnell-era Doctor Who serial "The Romans" plays for comedy Emperor Nero's repeated attempts to rape Barbara, and then his attempts to blame Barbara for it whenever his wife calls him out on it. A lot of this is an attempt to deal with Deliberate Values Dissonance - the historical Emperor Nero certainly was a rapist - in a way that isn't absolutely traumatic to the family audience, but special mention must be given to a particularly dated scene where the Doctor sees Nero running after the screaming and traumatised Barbara, smiles, and affectionately remarks "What an extraordinary fellow."
- The Whitest Kids U' Know has We Gon' Make Love..., which is a song about knocking out women and then "we gon' make love til' you wake up...". Part of the joke is that the rapist genuinely is attracted to the women and apparently sees nothing wrong with this, so it is structured like a soft love song... about having sex with unconscious women without their consent.
- That Mitchell and Webb Look had a sketch where the cast of a community pantomime are told they have to cut the scene where the Dame is raped by the Principal Boy, as the local council has decided it isn't "politically correct." The actors are unimpressed and argue that the rape scene is always the audience's favourite part of the show.
- Community has a recurring joke around Britta's past as she was raped by a man in a dinosaur suit in her 11th birthday.
- "Oasis" song by Amanda Palmer is a happy, upbeat song about a teenage girl who really likes the band Oasis, oh and she was raped. Caused a bit of a media controversy when it and the music video was released.
- The Armstrong and Miller Show features a highly offensive (black comedy style) parody of Fifties comedy singers Flanders and Swann. In one sketch, they sing the praises of Rohypnol.
- In fact this isn't far removed from the actual Flanders and Swann song Madeira M'Dear; it's alcohol instead of Rohypnol and the lyrics aren't quite so blunt about it, but in essence it's the same. Another of their songs jokes about the advantage of visiting a country whose word for "no" takes a very long time to say - by the time the girl's said it "it is usually too late".
- The Bed Intruder song, which plays a real-life attempted rape for laughs.
He's climbin' in your windows, he's snatching your people up! Tryna rape 'em, so y'all need ta hide ya kids, hide ya wife! And hide ya husband cuz they're rapin' everyone out here.
- The early Devo song, "Midget" has the narrator recounting tales of how he exploits his small stature to impersonate babies so that he can molest women who assume "It's all innocent fun." One squicky boast has him saying "I parked my can in her garage."
- "Shimmy Shake" features the narrator's drunken boasts that 'nothing's gonna stop me from getting in your pants girl' and 'nothing's going to stop me from getting what i want girl'. Despite having a catchy tune, it's no wonder it wasn't officially released for many years.
- OFWGKTA frequently plays with this trope. While frontman Tyler, The Creator often rapes women either as revenge for rejecting his advances or simply For the Evulz, he himself also gets molested or raped on several occasions by Chris Stokes ("French"), Jesus Christ ("Splatter"), Jeffrey Dahmer and R. Kelly ("Swag Me Out") and Michael Jackson ("Tron Cat"). Earl Sweatshirt's self-titled debut album also features frequent bouts of this trope; he later said he hoped he did not have any fans who only enjoyed his rapey lyrics, suggesting he isn't quite proud of them anymore.
- In the Reefer Madness: The Musical stage musical and Showtime adaptation, Mae's ballad of marijuana addiction climaxes in her belting out "Though the fun sometimes escapes me / When Jack gets stoned and RAPES ME!"
- In the stage version this is followed by a girl crossing the stage with a sign that reads 'Reefer gets you raped... And you won't care.'
- The film version has Mae shouting this out the window, cuing Stunned Silence and a milkman dropping the bottles he's carrying on the ground.
- In the musical semi-staged concert adaptation of Voltaire's Candide, Cunegonde is raped repeatedly when war breaks out.
Narrator: Cunegonde is raped.Cunegonde: (thrown in the air) Ahhh!Narrator: Repeatedly!Cunegonde: (thrown in the air again) Mmmmmm!
- The storyline of the character Prez in The Pajama Game basically revolves around him chasing every woman in the factory (where he is the president of the workers' union) around, no matter how much she refuses him. He even drags one into the woods at the company picnic, and it's never treated as anything but a light-hearted B-plot.
Babe: What happened to you?Brenda: Stay out in the open, honey. Don't get down in them woods. (pause for laugh)
- Romeo and Juliet: Act 1 Scene 1's dialogue is chock full of innuendo about women being "thrust against the wall" and to "cutting off maidenheads".
- Charles Wood's obscure play H, set during the Indian Mutiny, features an Englishwoman who's captured by rebellious Indian soldiers. She's terrified that she will be raped by her captors, until their Sergeant assures her that the Indians won't assault a white woman. He, on the other hand, is an Irishman by birth, and has no such scruples...
- In Disgaea Infinite, Mao starts approaching Flonne while excitedly panting and sweating. His reaction to her calling him a pervert and fleeing?
I see, so this is that "no means yes" situation I've read about in the comic books!
- In Skies of Arcadia, Aika is being held prisoner when Vigoro comes by and hits on her. When she refuses his advances, he ominously walks towards her. When it cuts back, she's holding onto the window bars for dear life as Vigoro is basically trying to rape her. He does this repeatedly every time they meet.
- In the Bayonetta series there's a Bonus Boss fight against Rodin, The Infinite One. The fight is incredibly challenging, not helped by the fact Rodin has access to an Hp To One move. Said move? It starts with with a charge then a screen fade to black with multiple hits ala Akuka's Raging Demon from Street Fighter, however the difference being after the move Bayonetta is completely naked laying on the ground, with Rodin laying next to her smoking a cigar, the implication being a clear rape/post-coitus reference.
- The Don Corneo side quest of Final Fantasy VII is played for laughs, despite the guy being a Dirty Old Man who practically throws himself at women, willing or not. A good example is the scene with Aerith, where he lunges at her (accompanied by a lot of pelvic thrusting) despite being told to stop. Later in the game, he also abducts both Elena and Yuffie, the latter of whom is 16. It's not outright stated, but the implication is that he plans on raping them. Despite this, his appearance is accompanied by a very quirky music piece, and the scenes are more comical than horrifying.
- The web comic Randy and the Gang on www.morphinenation.com features WWE wrestler Randy Orton and various rapists from movies, television, and real life. The "gang" (a reference to the term "gang rape") talk nonchalantly about rape until Orton, who is portrayed as a super-rapist, exhibits his superiority at raping and derides his gang as "fucking amateurs".
- In 8-Bit Theater, a gag involved Black Mage telling about how he made out with White Mage... or how they were going to... then says he has access to Chloroform and how at least one of these things could be true.
- He once planned on getting White Mage drunk with "wine" purchased at Akbar's. When his teammates point out that the "wine" looks suspiciously like paint thinner and that White Mage could die if she drank it, BM replies that the body would be warm long enough to serve his purposes.
Red Mage: That...might be the worst thing you ever said.
- Another involved Lich expressing complete disappointment in his son and wondering if he really was his, but he knows for sure because he used freaky undead mind control powers on the boy's mother...
- He once planned on getting White Mage drunk with "wine" purchased at Akbar's. When his teammates point out that the "wine" looks suspiciously like paint thinner and that White Mage could die if she drank it, BM replies that the body would be warm long enough to serve his purposes.
- A rather twisted version appears in the webcomic Deep Fried, in a story line which revolves around a child whose dad rapes her.
- Three Panel Soul: A sort of Poke the Poodle example.
- This is why Namine shouldn't drink in Ansem Retort, because she falls asleep after one hard lemonade and Zexion sells her for a buck a minute.
- An early set of strips from Chainmail Bikini drew a lot of ire. In the later added Alt Text, the authors describe it as "ZOMGRAPEGATE ‘07" and admit the joke was written poorly and didn't get the point across that they had in mind, which was a roleplayer grieving another player before the game began. Judge for yourself.
- A minor Running Gag at the start of Leftover Soup (see also Rape of Men by Women).
- From That Guy with the Glasses (and conceived by Lindsay Ellis, The Nostalgia Chick) Spooning With Spoony
"Horrific implication time!" [hip thrusting and porno music]
- The most surprising thing about this sketch? Spoony mentions in the commentary that this version of the sketch was actually toned down from what they originally had in mind, because they quickly realised that they were delving into some very dark and very uncomfortable territory.
- In other videos, The Nostalgia Chick mentions rape or implied rape or intent to rape (eg; Mulan, Earth Girls Are Easy, "Top 11 Most Inescapable Christmas Songs", etc).
- The notorious "Rape Rap," in which, based on a fan's grim comment on the Teen Witch review that their school saw more rape than rap, Lindsay has a friend of hers, stated in the video to be a convicted rapist, do a rap "instead," and it turns into a celebration of his crimes. Fan outcry, especially after an astoundingly insensitive forum post by Lindsay defending it, has put the incident firmly into Fanon Discontinuity.
- This Horny Harry◊ Meme pic.
- In MikeJ's review of The Butterfly Effect 3, a man and woman are taking part in a rape fantasy but the man stops because it feels too wrong for him, annoying the woman. MikeJ comments that he didn't know women were interested in "that sort of thing". He walks off-screen and all that's heard is a woman's desperate screaming. MikeJ in general has a number of pedophilia and rape jokes as his persona is that of a sociopath who takes part in those sort of activities.
- Implied in Family Guy's "I Dream of Jesus":
Peter: Can I have that record? I love that song. I'll let you have sex with my daughter...
Waiter: I don't know. Let's see what your daughter looks like.
Peter: She's... uhh...[pans past Meg, pointing instead at an attractive stranger]...right there!
Waiter: Ok, I'll do her. But can you tell her to cry and beg me to stop?
Peter: I think that can be arranged.
- Not to mention the fact that it's very strongly implied that Quagmire is a sex offender who frequently date-rapes women.
Quagmire: So when the hell am I going to get my own show?Peter: Quagmire, you're a rapist.
- A throwaway line mentions that his favorite cocktail to offer a date is a "roofie colada"
- He finds an underaged cheerleader bound and gagged and says to himself "Dear Diary: Jackpot!"
- In one episode, a seeming promo for The Simpsons at the bottom of the screen turns into a Funny Background Event of Quagmire assaulting Marge Simpson, then killing the entire Simpson family (including Maggie) afterwards. It was actually a loathsome moment to many, many viewers.
- In The Movie, Stewie and Brian need to take Quagmire's RV. Stewie (in the driver's seat) starts hitting buttons at random on the dashboard, triggering Quagmire's "modifications" which lock the passenger's arms down and then forces their head into the driver's crotch.
- And in one episode, he says the line "I felt guilty once, but she woke up halfway through"
- Another episode uses a similar gag when the Griffins go to Quagmire's lake house. Peter sits in a chair as Lois flips a light switch. This makes a nearby lamp spray Peter with knock-out gas, rips off his clothes, spreads his legs, and summons a mirror ball and porn music.
- Confirmed in an episode of The Cleveland Show.
- Explicit in "Baby Not on Board", though the joke was primarily how ineffectual Aquaman is:
(Cut to a woman running on the beach, bruised and crying, tripping over the sand dunes in an attempt to escape the large man chasing her. The man tackles her and pins her down. The woman continues to struggle underneath him throughout the scene.)Woman: Help! Help! Somebody help! Rape!Rapist: Scream all you want, nobody can hear you out here.Aquaman: (popping out of the ocean some distance away) I can!Woman: Aquaman, help!Aquaman: (not moving) Hey! Hey! Hey, let her go!Rapist: Or what?Aquaman: (still not moving) Or, or... I don't know man, but you're lucky you're not doing that over here. In the ocean. Or else... Or I would stop you.Woman: For God's sake, help! Do something!Aquaman: (throws a starfish that lands ineffectually nearby) Oh, if you don't like starfish, you're going to be mad about what I just did!Woman: Oh, God, help!Aquaman: (still not moving) Oh, you're in for it now, buddy, I've got like five fish coming to help. (Fish swim around him.) Oh, oh, here they are.Woman: Help! He's hurting me!Aquaman: Well, maybe you shouldn't have led him on.
- Among the most horrible things Family Guy has ever done (and that's saying something), the gay marriage episode also makes a joke about Elizabeth Smart — a real life victim of child molestation — getting raped during her nine-month captivity. The punchline of the joke is that Elizabeth is so deeply traumatized by the ordeal that she's constantly thinking about rape, even when she's playing the piano. Jeez, hope she or her family wasn't watching at the time.
- Brian met a girl when went to college who attended a female self-empowerment seminar:
Kelly McGillis: Hi, I'm Kelly McGillis and I'm here to talk to you about rape. Ladies, look to your left. Now look to your right. Statistics indicate that both of those men will rape you.Man on the left: I'm not gonna rape you.Man on the right: I might.
- Also a candidate for worst Family Guy joke ever, considering that Kelly McGillis is a real-life rape victim.
- Not to mention the fact that it's very strongly implied that Quagmire is a sex offender who frequently date-rapes women.
- In a rare mass-market example, Pepe Le Pew milked this dry over several decades of arguably funny shorts. While his antics may not have ever made it to genuine rape, few courts would consider it less than sexual harassment. Those episodes don't air much anymore, and most modern reinventions of Looney Tunes omit that side of Pepe's characterization.
- An episode of Moral Orel had Orel impregnating dozens of women with a pastry bag in his attempts to justify his masturbation, given his beliefs and the lackluster advice on the subject given by his authority figures.
- Zapp Brannigan attempts this upon capturing the Feministas. He fails.
"Prepare to be boarded again and again."
- On a Gender Flip episode of Adventure Time, Prince Gumball looks like he's going to rape Fionna because he walks towards her unbuttoning his shirt in front of a bed covered in rose petals without warning her. It was actually Ice Queen revealing herself, but that entire moment was obviously intentional and played for laughs. Then Cake walks in after hearing all the noise and seeing Fionna's ripped dress and assumes that's what happened.
Rape of Men and Women by Men
Anime and Manga
- By virtue of its protagonist's nature, Ranma ½ fits the "Rape of Men by Men" subtrope on psychological grounds, and "Rape of Women by Men" from the visual and social effects (particularly since the men involved never know Ranma is originally a man): one of Ranma's greatest fears is to be abused by men while in female form, and the series indulges in making it happen. This goes from groping and fondling, to being kissed unwillingly, to outright threats of rape. Since Ranma is a very macho, self-assured character, this is meant to be funny, especially since none of the other female characters go through this. But since female Ranma, a master martial artist is always shown helpless and terrified, the "humor" is usually lost.
- Owen Harper in the first episode of Torchwood uses an Applied Phlebotinum alien perfume which makes a woman who initially wasn't interested desperately want to have sex with him, the woman's boyfriend is not pleased... until Owen uses the perfume again and it has the exact same effect on the boyfriend. He calls a taxi, though it's not made clear whether it was to get out of a sticky situation, or to shag both of them.
- Alice's Restaurant.
Group W's where they put you if you may not be moral enough to join the army after committing your special crime, and there was all kinds of mean nasty ugly looking people on the bench there. Mother rapers. Father stabbers. Father rapers! Father rapers sitting right there on the bench next to me!
