[[caption-width-right:300:You keep telling yourself
that.[[hottip:*:Source: doujin Purple Sky, Golden [=DawN=]. Not

Fate/Stay Night canon.]]]]

An excuse for rape, used by a character. Used in at least three situations:

  • When a rapist denies that his/her actions can be classified as rape
    because the victim climaxed. This ignores the physiological fact that
    orgasm is as much a function of sufficient nerve stimulation as anything
    else.
    * When a rape is occurring, and the victim first protests and then
    starts having fun.
    * When a character is raped until they like it and can't get enough of it.

There are real people who believe these things make rape into not-rape,
or at least make it excusable. The law doesn't see it that way, and a
person whose morals really justify violating a person's consent for fun
is hardly moral at all, never mind how the victim feels.
NoRealLifeExamplesPlease Please don't add any real life examples; no
matter the details, a bullet point on such a topic tends to look as
though it's implying the possibility that this trope is true somewhere,
some of the time.

Do not confuse this with VictimFallsForRapist: the latter is about a
rape setting up characters as a couple, even though one or both of them,
as well as outsiders, know and acknowledge that it was rape. This trope
is about the situation where the rapist and/or outsiders deny that it
was a rape at all, because the victim became physically aroused or climaxed.

It should also not be confused with "rape fantasy", which is exactly
that - a fantasy situation acted out by two (or more) parties with
mutual consent
. Just because someone is into this kind of fantasy
roleplay does not mean they are "asking for it."

Unfortunately, this trope will often lead to DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale.

Turns up often in Hentai, BoysLoveGenre and Template:Fanfiction. A lot.

folder:Anime and Manga
* As seen in the image, used by [[VisualNovel/FateStayNight Saber
Alter]] in a h-manga by strike:Hiroe Rei BlackLagoon Tex-Mex to
justify her "usage" of Shirou.
* In the H-manga Warau Kangofu, the protagonist gets raped by a
HospitalHottie, returns the favor in the next chapter, and upon getting
better and getting released from the hospital promises to get sick again
so he can come back and see her once more. Said hottie herself
[[spoiler:gets gang-raped by three other men (one of the men being an
FanDisservice old man doesn't help) and finds it humiliating that
she's enjoying the rape.]]
* BattleVixens, the "[[Template:Macekre translation]]" of IkkiTousen
had the line "It's not rape if you smile behind the tears." This was not
in the original version.
* Berry Ecstasy [[spoiler:has this as its [[AWorldwidePunomenon
climax]], providing the HandWave of sheer masochism]].
* Invoked by BigBad Akai in Kite just to twist the knife a
little bit deeper while he rapes the protagonist Sawa in front of her
fellow assassin and would-be suitor Oburi. [[spoiler: Oburi and Akai
were not aware that Sawa was just playing along in an effort to gain
Akai's trust so that she could double-cross him later.]]
* This is brought up by Brick after the virginal protagonist in
Bondage Queen Kate protests while being raped in the first Template:OVA.
To make it worse, she had been given a powerful aphrodisiac immediately
before.
--> Brick: "If it's so bad, then why are you moving your hips?"
* Words Worth: This is highlighted in an exchange between Prince
Astral of the Shadow Tribe and Maria of the light tribe, the former
genuinely confused that the latter would consider his taking her while
she was chained to the wall (she was prisoner of war, at the time), and
protesting the entire time, rape.
--> Astral: (confused) "But... but that's not what you said, earlier!"
--> Maria: (flustered) "Sh-shut up, you! And anyway, that was my
body talking! Against my own will!"
--> Astral: "But that's ridiculous!"
--> Maria: (grins snidely) "You actually think I enjoyed
having some nasty Shadow man BuffySpeak thingy inside me?! Heh, you
must be crazy!"
* In Manga/BlackButler, episode 17, spoiler:Sebastian does it on
spoiler:a nun named Matilda. Sadly enough, some fans actually hate
poor spoiler:Matilda for being raped by [[spoiler:a [[EvilIsSexy
good-looking demon]]]], even though it's obvious he had no
VictimFallsForRapist feelings for her and she didn't ask for it.
* Painfully deconstructed in SakuraGari, where we get to see the
psychological consequences that such a trope brings on the victim - and
arguably, spoiler: even on the rapist... who ''also'' was a victim.
* Invoked in WolfGuyWolfenCrest. [[spoiler: While he and his Yakuza
goons are gang-raping Aoshika-sensei, Haguro Dou forcibly gives her a
PsychoSerum that causes her to physically enjoy herself, in an attempt
to break her further than he already has.]]
* Bible Black is one of the more infamous hentai to include this.
Most rape scenes either eventually turn into consensual sex scenes, or
are treated as such (aside from the screaming). The HGame version does
avert this at least once though
* In YosugaNoSora, Nao rapes Haruka while they're young teens.
Afterwards she begins putting her clothes back on, while he's still sort
of on his back apparently not knowing what to do. Later he chases after
her, and although she feels ashamed, he tells her he enjoyed it.
* In Manga/HappyYarouWedding, ArmouredClosetGay Kazuki is
determined that two men can't have a real relationship and considers his
brother-in-law's reaction to being molested by him as proof, never mind
Yuuhi's protests. Later on in the series it become clear
VictimFallsForRapist why this was such an issue for him.
/folder

folder:Comic Books
* A recurring theme in the HousewivesAtPlay adult comic book.
* In the ComicBook/FritzTheCat story "Fritz the No-Good", Fritz rapes
the girlfriends of one of the revolutionaries in the story. However, she
actually enjoys it! This trope reoccurs in "Fritz the Cat, Superstar",
where Fritz throws himself on a fan and she doesn't seem to object much,
only commenting "wow, man, you're too much".
/folder

folder: Fan Works
* Sort of experienced by George in Fanfic/WithStringsAttached, when
Fi'ar doses him with Lust Dust and he leaps on her. Later, safely away
from her and her vengeful mother, he decides she effectively raped him,
except he remembers the brief experience as enjoyable, which annoys him.
Ultimately he decides he has more important things to worry about.
* The author and Ronan believe this in
Fanfic/NarutoVeanganceRevelaitons. When Ronan starts having sex with
DudeShesLikeInAComa an unconscious Sakura, she wakes up in the
middle, asks if he had fun, then they continue. Later on, Sakura gets
raped by the catgirls and enjoys it.
-->?but skura liked it so it wasnt rapde do u c dn?
* Every fandom has fics like this, they're generally tagged "dubcon" or
dubious consent, as opposed to "noncon." Many fics get away with this by
throwing in some line about how if the victim was truly adamant about
escaping, they definitely could, as they were not being held down too
hard, or were given a chance to "run away". Also a common subversion is
to have it seem like this is being played straight, until post-sex
activities reveal that it was actually a pre-planned role-play
situation, and the audience simply wasn't privy to that information.
* In FanFic/FeverDreams [[Template:Yandere Misa]] seems to think so when
she assaults Light in front of his mother and sister:
-->Misa: Noooo! Let me stay. [[AManIsAlwaysEager I know you would
have gotten hard in another minute or so.]]

/folder

folder:Film
* Perhaps most controversially used in Sam Peckinpah's StrawDogs, in
which the unfulfilled wife of a nebbish professor is raped by her brawny
former boyfriend and, midway through, begins to enjoy it due to her
lingering affection for the man.
* Similarly in the Russ Meyer film Lorna the titular character is
raped by an escaped convict and starts to enjoy it. She subsequently
invites the man back to her home for sex.
* Several Film/JamesBond Bond movies come to mind.
Film/Template:Goldfinger in particular, where Bond forcibly kisses the
self-proclaimed lesbian Pussy Galore, who then immediately switches
sides in more ways than one. That's right; James Bond was an early
practitioner of "[
corrective rape
]".
-->[from the book] Bond liked the look of her. He felt the sexual
challenge all beautiful Lesbians have for men. He was amused by the
uncompromising attitude that said to Goldfinger and to the room, "All
men are bastards and cheats. Don't try any masculine hocus on me. I
don't go for it. I'm in a separate league."
** Which is just one ginormous [[UnfortunateImplications Unfortunate
Implication.]]
* In YoungFrankenstein, it looks like Elizabeth is about to be raped
by the monster... but once she sees the size of his schlong, she doesn't
seem too horrified. Never-mind the necrophilia implications! She later
expresses longing for the creature and spoiler:eventually marries it
-->Elizabeth: "I'm a... I -"
-->ZZZIP (Monster unzips his pants)
-->Elizabeth: "...oh my god! Woof!"
--> "Ohhhhhhh sweet mystery of life, at last I've found youuuuuuu!"
* The plot of the 1977 adult film Joy. The heroine enjoys it so much
her enthusiasm TooKinkyToTorture scares off the rapist. Soon she's
indiscriminately doing the same to men all around town. Her male victims
are uncertain whether or not they should press charges for the same reason.
** Quite a few adult films have this trope, unfortunately.
* In TheRockyHorrorPictureShow, Frank N. Furter sleeps with
spoiler: both Brad and Janet. To do this, he disguises himself as
the other character and gets frisky. When the disguises come off, they
initially object, then give in.
-->spoiler:'''Janet''': "Oh, STOP... I mean help..."
* Possibly in the movie Template:Carrie, when the title character was
conceived. spoiler:Carrie's mother Margaret is an extreme religious
fanatic who finds sex within marriage objectionable, and may be crying
rape because of her overdriven sense of sexual guilt.
-->"He took me, with that filthy roadhouse whiskey on his breath, and I
liked it. I liked it!"
* Also shows up in DoctorZhivago:
--> "And don't delude yourself this was rape. That would flatter us both."
* In MontyPythonsLifeOfBrian, after Brian discovers his father was a
Roman:
-->Brian: "You mean...you were raped?!"\\
Mother: "Well, at first, yes."
* In Template:Revenge of the Nerds, Lewis (a nerd) commits RapeByFraud
against head-cheerleader Betty by disguising himself as her mean
boyfriend, Stan (the quarterback). He reveals himself to her immediately
after, she is so overwhelmed by Lewis's sexual expertise that she falls
in love with him.
** This was lampshaded in RobotChicken.
* In Template:Gone with the Wind, Rhett Butler rapes his wife Scarlett,
but the next day she's blushing blissfully about it. This also counts as
ValuesDissonance since the idea of [[MaritalRapeLicense marital rape
being a crime]] is a very new concept and was not around at the time the
book or movie were made.
* In the Template:Hanzo the Razor trilogy of films (starring Shintaro
Katsu of the Template:Zatoichi series), the titular policeman interrogates
women by raping them until his massive penis has brought them to such
ecstasy that they cannot refuse telling him whatever he wants to know.
* In RobRoy, TimRoth Archie (the villain) is speculating on
various possible fathers, one of whom "lifted [his mother's] skirts at a
masque ball." When Archie's girlfriend, shocked, replies "He ravished
her?" Archie simply says "I would put it no higher than surprise." Later
on, when Archie rapes the hero's wife, Brian Cox shows up to tell her
that it doesn't count as a sin (of adultery) if she didn't enjoy it.
Even further on, Archie taunts Rob by musing if Mary enjoyed it somewhat.
* In HighPlainsDrifter, the third thing ClintEastwood's character
does after riding into town is to drag off a woman who was harassing him
and force himself on her. Halfway through the act she starts kissing him
enthusiastically. Later she comes after him with a gun--according to the
other characters she was angry because he "didn't come back for more",
but given how awful the townspeople are it's debatable how true this
statement is.
* The Killer Inside Me: Joyce starts hitting Lou, Lou hits her back,
and then shoves her down on the bed and starts beating her with his
belt. It's awful... until he apologizes, looking shocked at himself, and
she tells him it's OK and kisses him. They then begin an S&M relationship.
* A borderline case occurs in Unfaithful (the American remake of "La
Femme infidèle"); wife Connie Sumner (Diane Lane) is walking out on Paul
Martel (Olivier Martinez) to stop her affections from developing
further. Martel angrily chases her out of his apartment, slams her
against the wall, and starts forcibly kissing and groping her. She
struggles at first, then quickly submits [[YourCheatingHeart to her
infidelity]].
* In LustCaution, the heroine ends up falling in love with the man
she's been ordered to sleep with and whose idea of intimacy is to take
her by force.
* In Template:Dreamscape, people have the ability to visit other people's
dreamworlds while they're asleep by way of psychic abilities. Alex uses
this trope as his rationalization for covertly inserting himself into
Jane's dreams to make her think she was having a sex fantasy about him,
rather than making out with the real life person. The fact that she
enjoyed herself doesn't negate the fact that he just basically raped her
(MindRape?), as she was in no position to give informed consent.

folder:Literature
* Used in AynRand's TheFountainhead. In her own words, Ayn Rand
declares "If it is rape, then it is rape by engraved invitation."
Through the use of subtle advances, the heroine basically does
everything an upstanding woman of the 1920s can do short of ripping off
her clothes and humping his leg to get his attention - without ever
explicitly consenting. Given that she repeatedly refers to it as rape
after the fact, yet seems to be proud of the experience, it probably
suffices to say that Rand had some odd ideas about sex and consent.
** Rand's ideal sexual encounter was once characterized (unfairly,
perhaps) as "being raped on the steps of the New York Stock Exchange."
* Tylin to Mat in Template:The Wheel of Time. A truly horrifying example
in which the victim keeps on seeking help from his (female) friends who
are awesomely powerful mages that owe him their lives... and they laugh
at him, telling him he "deserves" to be repeatedly raped (for offenses
which include having been a flirt in his teenage years, and the
aforementioned saving their lives). It is only after he has had a
personal breakdown from these events, recovered from it, escaped (saving
his ingrateful alleged "friends" once again), and several other events
have happened that someone gives the women in question a WhatTheHellHero
speech and makes them apologize... [[IgnoredEpiphany which they use as
simply another opportunity to insult Mat.]] Most chilling of all, the
author seems to agree with this treatment.
* One of many rape tropes present in the Literature/Template:Outlander
series. Jack Randall purposefully alternates between brutal sadism and
romantic attentions, in an attempt to elicit a physical response from
his male victim, and he succeeds. Jamie is left disturbed, confused, and
furious. (Though at least one reader has ended up pleading this trope in
Randall's defence...) In another instance, with a female making the
advances and without the sadism, Geilis quite clearly takes advantage of
Ian during Voyager. Other characters seem ambivalent about this, in
what appears to be DeliberateValuesDissonance. We hope.
* ClassicalMythology features - well, it's difficult if it could be
termed "Rape," even if the girl is a maiden or a HappilyMarried woman
and the guy is the King of All Gods and kind of difficult to turn down.
Whether it was consensual or not is always debatable (though the
incidences with the swan and the bull are pretty harsh), but whenever
there is a child resulting from said union (and there always is) the
child is raised with love and pride to be a great hero. Often, in times
when portraying sexual acts between two consensual humans in art was
utterly inappropriate, many artists faced no trouble in painting or
sculpting scenes such as this, instead.
* In StephenKing's Template:Carrie, as described in the entry for the film.
* A weird example in another King book, TheDarkTower/TheWastelands.
An incubus doesn't want to rape Susannah if she's enjoying it. At
first it overpowers her and forces itself upon her painfully, but when
she pretends to like it, it tries to get away.
* Template:Gone with the Wind.
* Subverted in KushielsLegacy Kushiel's Legacy. Several times,
Phedre has been places in situations where she has been forced into sex
with another person. She mentions the worst part of the experience is
always the humiliation of enjoying it.
* From the Template:Discworld:
--> "Not rape. I believe," said Mr. Betteridge, finding a rock on which
he could stand. "Not in the case of Cohen the Barbarian. Ravishing,
possibly."
--> "There is a difference?"
--> "It's more a matter of approach, I understand." said the historian.
"I don't believe there were ever any actual complaints."
* Template:Speak: Andy Evans pulls this on Melinda in TheClimax, right
before trying to rape her. spoiler: Again. This time, she kicks his ass.
* Not precisely this trope, but in Vladimir Nabokov's Lolita, the
eponymous character initiates her first sexual encounter with the
narrator, inviting him to play "a game she learned at camp"--of course
we have UnreliableNarrator only Humbert's word on this.
* In VCAndrews' FlowersInTheAttic, [[spoiler: after Christopher begs
Cathy to forgive him for raping her, she comforts him by insisting that
she wanted it just as much as he did and could've stopped him if she'd
wanted to. However, in the description of the rape itself Cathy
describes having initially tried to fight him off, but that "It wasn't
much of a battle" because of his greater weight and height (a sentiment
she follows, however, almost immediately with "And I loved him"). Factor
in that the two are brother and sister and the whole event becomes even
more distressing.]]
* Averted in TheGuardians. When vampires drink, it is the blood
donor who chooses whether to resist or invite the BloodLust. Over the
course of the series, several vampires are forced to have sex they don't
want, and depending on the circumstances it's treated as anything from a
tragedy to outright rape.
* In the Hurog series by Patricia Briggs, Ward is very uncomfortable
discussing what happened to him while he was a prisoner. Another
character reassures him that he shouldn't feel guilty or question his
sexuality; rape is rape, no matter if his body enjoyed it or not.
* Subverted in Henry Sackerman's The Love Bomb: Two men grab a woman
and have their way with her. She puts up a fight, but ends up enjoying
it. [[spoiler:This was an elaborate sexual roleplay planned in advance
by the woman: She had a bit of a fetish for putting up token resistance,
and chose two implicitly trusted fuckbuddies whom she thought might
enjoy it for the scenario.]]
* A subversion on Series/ThirtyRock. For [[InsaneTrollLogic some
reason]], Jenna is convinced that she needs to have sex with
CrackPairing Kenneth. When he refuses, she threatens to take him
while he sleeps.
-->Jenna: It's not rape if neither of us want it!
* How Like a God almost hits this trope, but the protagonist has
just enough decency left to reconsider. (It helps that [[MindControl the
issue of consent's even iffier here than normal]].)
* ASongOfIceAndFire: In the fifth book, Asha Greyjoy is seemingly
raped by one of her crewmen. Halfway through the scene it becomes clear
that she enjoys it and that the seeming rapist is her long-time lover.
Apparently she considers this par for the course in their relationship;
but then, she is a famed pirate in a very misogynistic setting. Either
that, or it was roleplay, which is pretty likely, [[BadAss as she's more
than capable of defending herself.]]
** Also notable in that, despite the series being wall-to-wall with
rape, this is the only instance that is described on the page.
* One of the most disconcerting parts about Push: Precious recalls
her father raping her and vividly remembers enjoying it in parts,
despite the awful shame and self-loathing that came with it (not to
mention the two IncestisRelative pregnancies).
* Played disturbingly straight (despite AliensMadeThemDoIt, and all the
more so for the fact that they end up as an OfficialCouple) in
Template:Stardoc with spoiler:Cherijo and Duncan. And again in Bio
Rescue
(in the same 'TheVerse verse, but not the same series) with
[[spoiler:OurMermaidsAreDifferent Dair and Onkar]]...only without
AliensMadeThemDoIt, [[spoiler:and with the addition of [[ChildByRape its
resulting in pregnancy]]]].
* Near the end of OneHundredYearsOfSolitude, the latest Aureliano is
unable to cope with his attraction to Amaranta Ursula, who is his aunt
and who he believes to be his sister, and rapes her while her husband is
in the other room. She tries to fight him off at first, but ends up
enjoying it so much that her feelings of love are transferred from her
husband over to him.
* Literature/InvisibleMan by Ralph Ellison. It features a man who
rapes his daughter while he's asleep. She enjoys it so much that when he
comes out of his dream and realizes what he's doing she refuses to let
him stop.

folder:Live Action TV
* This trope is DiscussedTrope often discussed on
LawAndOrderSpecialVictimsUnit, especially when there are male rape
victims. "Arousal is not consent", or words to that effect, are often
heard in these situations. Specific examples include:
** When three female white collar workers are accused of raping a male
stripper. Lots of politics get flung around at the bail hearing, until
the judge declares that women's rights have moved forward enough for
women to also take responsibility as potential sexual predators.
** There's another episode where a man is raped by another man and
doesn't want his girlfriend to know about it because he climaxed.
* In PicketFences, a woman rapes a man, and the police are
DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale a bit confused, also pointing out
that he did climax himself.
* This trope makes up the plot of [[ItsAlwaysSunnyInPhiladelphia the
song "Nightman,"]] but [[DoubleStandardRapeMaleOnMale don't try to tell
Charlie that]].
* May play a factor in the very complicated consent dynamics between
Spike and Buffy in Series/Template:Buffy the Vampire Slayer.
** Including a BrokenBase polarising exploration of how even within
a (semi) consensual relationship, there can still be full rape. Yes,
even if the two had previously been consenting partners. Despite being
TruthInTelevision, this did not go over well.
** Spike learned his habits with Drusilla:
---> Spike': I want Dru back, I just gotta be the man I was. The
man she loved. I'm gonna do what I should have done in the first place.
I'll find her, wherever she is, tie her up, torture her till she likes
me again. Love's a funny thing.
* This is literally the rapist Dean's defense when Paige Michalchuk sues
him for rape in
DegrassiTheNextGeneration.
--->
Dean's Lawyer: And you find my client attractive?
--->
Paige: (hesitating) Yes. I did. Before.
--->
Dean's Lawyer:My client put his hand inside your blouse, did
you immediately reject him? Slap him? For the record, please.
--->
Paige: No.
--->
Dean's Lawyer: This is very difficult for you I know, but when
my client touched your breast how did you respond? Did you enjoy it?
--->
Paige: (hesitating) No. Well, at first...yeah.
--->
Dean's Lawyer: You're telling us that you did. Ms. Michalchuk.
** Needless to say, Dean's lawyer was a total bitch and an
AmoralAttorney, and the judge believed Paige and thought the lawyer was
a moron. He only won because there were no witnesses or physical
evidence to back up Paige's story, since she waited so long to report
the rape in the first place.
** They've FleetingDemographicRule gone back to this well with
Declan/Holly J - at this point it's not known where they'll go with it
but it's already a BaseBreaker. In this case they went with the "It's
not rape if you say no but don't fight it and change your mind about it"
option there.
* The defense used by the people who run the Dollhouse in
Template:Dollhouse is that when Actives are sent on romantic engagements,
they genuinely love the clients and willingly have sex with them, having
no idea that they've been hired out rather than being in long-term
relationships with the clients or that their own memories and
personalities are constructs.
** Agent Ballard disagrees, of course, and feels terrible about sleeping
with spoiler:Mellie after learning that she's an Active. He also
refuses to have sex with Echo, a self-aware Active who has integrated
her imprint personalities, because he doesn't think it's right while her
original personality, Caroline, is still missing.
* Averted in
MyNameIsEarl (in tandem with an aversion of
DoubleStandardRapeFemaleOnMale), where after Earl's
comatose-but-dreaming body is kidnapped/stolen the medical examiner
refers to "involuntary climax" and Joy ([[ComedicSociopathy of all
people]]) insists on making more fervent the hunt for vengeance.
*
RescueMe
s third season episode "Sparks" features Tommy in an
argument with his ex-wife over the ownership of some property, all of
which Tommy insists are his and basically tells his ex-wife "You're
mine", rips off her panties and forces himself on her, she fights for a
while but eventually enjoys it.
[
Cue outrage.
]
* Discussed in the first episode of Series/Template:Crownies by two of
the prosecutors.
* Template:Cracker had a discussion something along the lines of
--> Perp: "But he got a hard-on, he enjoyed it!"
--> Fitz: "I've had a hard-on from the vibrations of a bus, it doesn't
mean I want to shag the conductor."

-->And I think you even enjoyed it, I think I even saw you come
* Vince Staples on the song "epaR" by [[Template:OFWGKTA Earl Sweatshirt]].

* VictimFallsForRapist The Robber Bridegroom
* TheZerothLawOfTropeExamples The Rape of Lucreze. Where it's
debated whether a rape victim is pure or not; after all, she might have
enjoyed it. Only through DrivenToSuicide killing
RedemptionEqualsDeath herself is the stain removed. Yeah,
[[ValuesDissonance there's a reason this one isn't talked about as much
as Shakespeare's other works.]]
** A similar discussion is seen near the end of
Theatre/TitusAndronicus, ending in TheReveal via the TragicHero
ValuesDissonance casually killing his daughter.
* Template:The Phantom of the Opera alludes to this. There has been much
debate over what happens between Christine and the Phantom after the
lights go out at the conclusion of "Music Of The Night"--and if there
WAS sex, it would be rape, as Christine was alternately unconscious/in a
trance at the time. When Christine describes the encounter to Raoul, she
states that though she is terrified of the Phantom, she is equally drawn
to him by his beautiful music. There's also
AlternativeCharacterInterpretation debate over whether the Phantom
is even physically capable of having sex.

* The NeverwinterNights mod series The Bastard of Kosigan has a couple
of scenes that can play out this way. If the player has a high enough
Charisma and chooses the violent rape option with Diane in the forest
north of Cologne, the following text is something along the lines of
"she is a lot less reluctant than she should be."
** In A Dance With Rogues, if you lead Vico along enough in the second
mod the scene in the dwarven inn will play out a lot like a rape scene,
and you have the option of fighting him off or going along (which locks
you into a romance with him).
* EmbricOfWulfhammersCastle sees the Duchess raped by a woman; she
acknowledges that it was rape, and does accuse Carmina of raping her,
but the fact that she enjoyed it (and doesn't mind describing it in
erotic detail for her maid to arouse herself with later) is

* One of the WebVideo/AskThatGuyWithTheGlasses Ask That Guy
segments had the question "If you rape a prostitute, is it rape or just
theft?". He claims that he raped a prostitute and was charged for both
crimes, with his defense being that she enjoyed it just as much as he did.
* The first variation is used in DeptHeavenApocrypha when the
villain InvokedTrope makes sure a character he's raping climaxes,
then uses it to MindRape torture that character mentally. The scene
is played for NightmareFuel, and shortly after, the victim loses his
mind completely. The results are not pretty.
* In SurvivalOfTheFittest Version 3, Adam Reeves attempts to justify
his rape of Maxie Dasai by asserting that her body's arousal meant that
she was into it. It's left ambiguous, but strongly implied that he
brought her to orgasm (Reeves himself certainly thought so).
CompleteMonster He is the only one that thought it was okay.
* Template:Literotica EnforcedTrope enforces the trope. It won't allow
stories to be tagged with the word "rape," and it won't allow stories
where a rape victim doesn't enjoy it. If the rape victim does enjoy
it, however, it's classified as "nonconsent" instead.

* While there was no actual sex, there was a somewhat arguable example
in Template:Collar 6. Sixx drugged Laura without her knowledge, and had
Ginger molest her. Even though Laura was already in a submissive
relationship with Sixx, this led to a DudeNotFunny reaction, and
eventually the author had Sixx apologize, and realize that what she'd
been doing was wrong.
* KitNKayBoodle has a storyline wherein the titular characters and a
psychic friend astrally rape the queen of a neighboring country while
she's negotiating a contract with her lawyers; when she cries in pain,
they switch to oral sex, and she begins to enjoy it-- when the lawyers
try to rescue her from this when they realize that the reading glasses
she's wearing are the link between her mind and her rapists, it attracts
the attention of her doorman, who then accuses the three of them of
raping her and throws them out before negotiations are complete. This
was the entire point
, and at no point is any of it ever considered bad
or morally questionable because PuritySue the protagonists
ProtagonistCenteredMorality did it.
