It turns out that if you ask the right questions in just the right way, some men will actually tell you that they're rapists. They'll just…admit it.
The key is, don't use the word rape. Just ask them what they've done.
Researchers asked 1,882 men: "Have you ever tried to have oral sex with someone by using (or threatening to use) physical force—twisting their arm, holding them down, etc.—if they did not cooperate?"
and: "Have you ever had sexual intercourse with someone, even though they didn't want to, because they were too intoxicated to resist your advances?"
120 answered yes.
They admitted to a total of 483 rapes and attempted rapes. 483!
