Venus and Mars, the 'miscommunication model' and other rape myths

Rapley, M., Hansen, S. and O’Byrne, R. (2008) Venus and Mars, the 'miscommunication model' and other rape myths. Clinical Psychology Forum, 192 . pp. 37-42.

Abstract

Prevailing theory stresses psychological factors in explaining why men rape. Recent UK government rape prevention campaigns employ a "miscommunication model", suggesting men understand neither consent, nor how women convey sexual refusal. In this paper we cast doubt on these claims.
