Rape can be defined in numerous ways. Many countries' legal codes define it as sexual intercourse without consent. However, the true definition of the word spans much wider than that. It is a common fact that many rapists are not sexually attracted to the raped individual, therefore the main issue is consent and not sex.

This does not imply that this act is in any way less harmful than it is perceived, in fact the opposite is true.
