Can Woman rape Men(Anyone)?

Is it possible for a Woman to rape a man?

Because you always hear of men doing it to women, but not the other way around.

Why is that?

    Depending on the state, it may be called a sexual assault instead of a rape. But yes, they can.

    There are two problems. First, most men aren't willing to report it - people seem to think men can't be raped or their friends will tell them they are lucky.

    . And second, people assume they must want it - if they get an erection making rape possible. Of course you can be mentally against it, but your body does it's own thing.

    For example, I read a story of a Mormon missionary who was raped. Mentally against it, but his body cooperated.

    Short answer... absolutely. It does create some confusing thoughts based on our cultural outlook. Men are the aggressors therefore they do the raping, not always. Because of the "against your will factor" and the definition of rape a woman can be charged with rape of a man or boy for that matter. Several cases have found the female guilty of such a charge. Same sex charges of rape are also possible.

    legally Yes, at least in my state. In some state that still use common law statues they cannot.

    physically always yes

    Even the FBI, who rarely changes things, just changed their definition of rape to include woman on man, man on man, woman on woman for statistical purposes.

    Many states have changed their laws also and now tend to call rape criminal sexual assault.

    Yes, they can, and it does happen. Just not very common.

    You don't hear about it for obvious reasons.
