From a hastily forced kiss to outright rape, violent or at least coerced sexual contact may be worryingly common among teens and young adults, researchers reported Monday.

They found 9 percent of youths aged 14 to 21 admitted to some kind of forced sexual contact, using tactics from guilt to threats and actual physical force. Half blamed their victims.

Four percent of the more than 1,000 young men and women surveyed admitted to having raped someone else, the researchers report in the American Medical Association journal JAMA Pediatrics.

But most who tried or completed rape said they didn’t use physical force – 63 percent of those who said they had forced someone to have sex against their will said they used guilt as their main tactic, while 32 percent said they used arguments and other verbal pressure.

And the problem behavior tends to really begin at around age 16, said Michele Ybarra of the Center for Innovative Public Health Research in San Clemente, California and Kimberly Mitchell of the University of New Hampshire.

Ybarra says the study doesn’t paint the whole picture and she says the findings should encourage other researchers to dig a little deeper into questions about sexual behavior in the teen years, and whether it’s possible to predict and even prevent sexual violence.

What is clear is that many teens are not getting the message that ‘no’ means no, she said.

I'm too old for the teen scene but from what I hear and see, the girls seem to be the worse offenders these days. I know of one girl that threaten guys to have sex with her or she would tell the cops that they had raped her.

What the heck are these kids learning these days? This has always happened, but was not common when I was younger. Is it because of the way the laws are now? Why is this so frequent?

 

Any woman who falsely cries rape and gets someone in trouble should just burn, I'm sorry. It's those crying-wolf scenarios that mean actual rape victims are treated suspiciously and have to go through hell to get their attacker convicted, because so many innocent men are accused. It trivialises the actual occurrences. These stupid girls wouldn't dare lie about it if they actually knew what going through it was like. I wish there was some balance in the legal system for this. A terrible failing of the system.

yeah I don't like that...  girls try to make quick money for raping.

 

I remember that a girl tried to sue David Copperfield for rape....but he didn't do a thing to her....  she lied to cops/FBI.

OK, I'm going to be VERY honest here.  As a kid, maybe about 7 ish, we played kiss chase.  And make no mistake that was about girls running away from us and we kissed them if we caught them.  That's quite wrong in hindsight.

 

Then there was some frottage, sly touches in a crowd and so on.

 

And it was VERY much standard.

 

Sorry, the worlds got no worse!

Blame the modern mentality of ME, these kids were taught that all that matters is their wants and that when caught it is always someone else's fault, never yours
