From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Rape pornography is a genre of pornography involving the depiction of rape.

There is debate over if this form of pornography encourages men to commit rape. The pairing of sex with violence distinguishes the issue of rape pornography from that of pornography in general. Studies of the issue produce conflicting results.[1]


Methods of production

Literary descriptions of rape long antedate the beginning of filmed ones (for example, the anonymous Victorian novel "The Way of a Man with a Maid".

Filmed rape pornography can be produced either by:

  • Actors pretending to be raped or raping — e.g., an actress or actor pretends not to consent to sexual activity with one or more actors, but in reality is a consenting participant who may be acting in the scene for money, personal enjoyment, or other reasons. In this case, although the sex depicted is given the appearance of rape, all participants are actually consenting.
  • Real, actual rapes, recorded by the perpetrators. This method can be considered theoretical, as no examples of widely-available rape pornography produced in this manner have been documented.
  • Animation or CGI, often in the form of hentai which is quite prolific. Rape is also frequently depicted in erotic manga as well as Dōjinshi.


It was announced on August 30, 2006 that possession of depictions of rape would become a criminal offence in England and Wales,[2] including those involving consenting adults, and images which are faked. However, the resultant law on "extreme pornography" did not explicitly specify depictions of rape. In September 2008, it was announced that Scotland planned to criminalise possession of "extreme" pornography, extending the list of banned material beyond that in England and Wales to include depictions of rape, and "other non-consensual penetrative sexual activity, whether violent or otherwise".[3]
