The Orion 'pheromone' example is a bit iffy. Humans attract each other with pheromones too, it is part of basically every sexual activity in the world. I think we may have a larger problem because I don't think we can conclusively place stuff like the pheromones in the same category as GHB (date rape drugs) and exclude them from the category of a good-looking, fit body (natural attractors). I think the difference between these too is that the attraction is artificially induced in the former and naturally produced in the latter.

Even that doesn't entirely work as a distinction, because plastic surgery is an artificial enhancement to a natural attractor (in theory, anyway), and so is corsetry etc.. A better distinction would be that date rape drugs greatly reduce the target's ability to rationally overrule their desires and wasn't deliberately taken for that effect (as alcohol, ecstasy, etc. sometimes are), whereas natural attractors don't work anywhere near as effectively.

In the Buffy examples, why was the one about Faith sexually assaulting Xander removed?

It was moved to "Near Rape Experience".

... that doesn't make sense. It's still a double standard, considering how it portrayed compared to Sthe Spike-on-Buffy NRE.

I'm not sure the Greek Mythology example belongs here. It seems to be more of Values Dissonance where rape isn't veiwed as something wrong at all, rather than this trope where women can get away with it while men can't.

Can we add a redirect from Rape is Ok if it is Female on Male to this trope?

Lu127 just wondering how is a series in which this trope is a major part of Gakuen Ouji, considered a non example, I saw several other valid examples deleted in the history section but this seems but I deferred to you because of your status. yet this one is just to big a part of the series to delete, and i think it should be restored

None of those examples say Double Standard, i.e. the story treating females raping a male as an okay action or funny. Not the way they were written at least, which is why they were deleted during the cleanup. Females raping a male is not an example of this trope.
