Male Victim Rape

Abstract
This research paper is based on individual case study related to "Male Rape Victims." Male rape is a crime of forcing another person to submit to sex acts, especially sexual intercourse (LongMan Dictionary, p1169). In general, male rape has occurred as often as every year from the age of twelve and above. Frequently, males and females had common experiences in same situations. An attacker could victimize males as well as females, who can be an attacker, only a small number of rapes or assaults, about twenty percent, are committed by complete strangers (The Rape of Males, p1). The best known locations where rape occurs are at parties, allies, and secretive streets. Nearly everyone, who has consumed alcohol ot taken drugs of any kind has had their sexual hormones increase. The purpose of sexual intercourse is accomplished with a person, not the spouse of the perpetrator. In addition, men and women hackneyed sexual intercourse from pornographic publications. Despite, the pornographic industry's tremendous size and growth, sexually explicit materials continue to engender much political, legal, moral, and scientific debate (Malamuth, et.al, p26). It has beneficial effects of desires for pornography. Conducting a case study will help students determine whether or not their experiences of rape influence their life. Rape can be an impact on medications and health. The effects of rape are mental, physical, and social healths which are strongly influenced on health outcomes. Moreover, it has some affinity with the colloquial notion of "reverse psychology," which is based on the idea that telling people that they may not do something makes them want to do it more (Baumeister, et.al, p6).

Introduction and Literature Review
I have chosen four journal articles from the research database related to Males Rape Victim I invented ten questions for a case study and have already interviewed a twenty-two year old male. My hypothesis is how a male rape victim would deal with their experiences of being raped and how their life changed. I wanted to know how bad rape affected that persons' life or that person proceeds. Did that person get help to cope with their fear? Did going to counseling or therapy help them at all? Is it possible to be given treatments provided to prevent from getting unknown diseases? I believe that rape to that person reiterates "Why me, why not others?" Being raped is not what anyone would expect to happen to them in their life but it could and it only takes seconds and those seconds will change your life forever. That person might appear to have experienced being raped or their first time experience. Quantities of young children get raped at age of twelve. Also, drugs and alcohols are always involved in a situation of rape. Those are my expectations after I completed a case study. This is thinking logically why rape appeared in our lives and for us to experience it. As this continues to happen more males and females get raped and the number of rape victims increases. There were approximately sixty thousand rapes of males age twelve and over in the United States in nineteen ninety-two and in the U.S. Department of Justice, Bureau of Justice Statistics nineteen-eighty five report The Crime of Rape, there were one hundred, twenty-three thousand male rapes over a ten-year period (The Rape of Males). Rape is a crime for males and females to handle in their lives. There are many consequences rape

victims must deal with. Short-term consequences include disturbed sleep patterns, nightmares, changed eating habits, headaches, nausea, muscle tension, anxiety, depression, anger, and guilt (Kaszniak, et.al, p100). The long-term consequence is transmitted diseases that cannot be cured.

Method
I determined to do an individual case study including ten questions which is opened ended and allow my subject elaborate with details. There is only one subject for this case study. Fortunately, I...
