  •  Perhaps it's just my interpretation (0+ / 0-)

    but when I hear 'it's all about the power not the sex' what I hear is a rapist using sexual assault as a way to express power. Power is the goal, sex is the means.

    This seems to be distinct, at least as far as motivation, from rapes that use power to get sex. Sex is the goal, power is the means.

    Both are rapes.
