My sister has a theory about how she would handle an attempted rape - she reckons she would yell something along the lines of "Come on big boy, let's get it ooonnnnn!" and jump on him. Her reasoning is that he'll either run a mile, or at worst, she has bad sex. As she points out, people have bad sex all the time. The whole idea intrigues me. It also makes me laugh, this is not a deep and meaningful post,l it's just kinda thoughtfully amusing.
Firstly, I realise that many rape circumstances would not allow for such a strategy, and I really don't know how plausible it would be in any situation. But still, I like the idea that you take back the power that they try to take from you, and I daresay if you could manage it, there would be some perpetrators that would truly freak out and run.
I'm really not suggesting this as a serious rape prevention method, only those who rape can stop rape altogether, but the concept is kind of interesting. It says something underlying about our sexuality. The fact that sex is something that can be used against women - I wonder if rape would be a less chosen form of violence if women were perceived as wanting sex as much as men.
If only such a scenario could be caught on film - a woman turning the tables on a would-be rapist and making him run for the hills, that'd make some good YouTube viewing...
