However, the difference between seduction and rape is that seduction involves no force, implied or otherwise. Seduction attempts to secure a woman’s consent, but consent is still required. Acquaintance rape often occurs when seduction fails. Many women fail to set their sexual limits beforehand. Men often believe that women will not say when they are willing to have sex, and feel that a woman needs to be “seduced.” This is the “no” means “yes” scenario. It is important that men and women communicate their intentions in advance. Women must be assertive rather than passive or unsure if they do not want to engage in intercourse. Many attempted rapes have been prevented because a woman has yelled, screamed or fought her assailant. If a woman fights her assailant, the chances are greater that he will stop the attack. However, if a woman fails to stop her attacker this does not make her responsible for the incident.
Many women enter a state of shock when they are attacked. It is important that victims of rape understand that if they have been forced against their will to submit, is not their fault. Simply saying “no” should be enough to prevent unwanted sexual relations. When a woman says no to sexual intercourse and force is applied, it should not be viewed as a successful seduction but should be understood as rape.
