    many men have only raped once, often when in college or with a group of buddies.  I recall one story of a professor who volated a student, after a party when she'd passed out, and  he was also drunk, and she woke up unexpeedly and flipped, and it's possible that this was his first rape.  He thought he could get away with it.

      Show me the whisky stains on the floor
      Show me an old drunkard as he stumbles to the door
      And I'll see a young man with so many reasons why...

      "violating" a student at a party? Why was he at a drunken student party anyway?

      This was his first rape — for which he was caught!

      It's always the first time — until he is caught again.

      Most rapes are perpetrated by serial rapists and they all start with a "first time."

      first rape he was punished for.

      He was a professor, and she was a student. He was conscious, she was passed out. He has all the power and she is helpless. Its the perfect set up. If she reports the crime afterwards, it is unlikely that anyone will believe her. Worse, she could be ostracized by her peers if she accuses super-cool party professor of raping her.
