Meaning

A literary term, to denote the taking of another, in a sexual context, with or without consent. Also can have the double meaning of giving extreme pleasure to another, from wild sexual actions.

History

The word 'rape' itself comes from the Latin verb 'rapere' which means 'to seize' 'to take by force' and back then had no sexual connotation in its use.

Also Ravish is from Middle English “ravisshen” and the Old French “ravir”, again implying the use of force, strength to obtain satisfaction, in a sexual connotation.

Ancient history shows that rape was more about a crime against property, than one against a person.

This was mainly a result of society considering woman as property.

In historical times, to the victor of a battle went the spoils, which including the ravishing of the defeated forces women.

Practice

To force one's self on another, in a literary context.

Meaning to engage in numerous sexual activity, without regard to the person's choice, or with their full consent.

Practice (Associated Acts):

Can also be about fully enjoying another person, in a sexual context.

Unlike the more accepted meaning, this involves prior consent.

It is about complete sexual satisfaction for all parties involved, through all accepted sexual practices.

Contradictory to the more accepted meaning for ravish.

Noteworthy:

Several meanings exist, that constitute 'non consensual sex'.

To take by force, such as Rape

To fill with pleasure, immense joy, to leave nothing left unsatisfied.

In most Western Civilizations, Rape is a criminal offence, and can be between either sexes.

However in Brazil, the term is more restrictive, in which it defines rape as being forced vaginal intercourse, thus excluding anal sex, as by a man to another man, or to a woman.

Medieval theologian Thomas Aquinas argued that 'rape' was less of a sin than Masturbation.

He claimed that rape at least followed the concept of procreation, while Masturbation was at odds with that religious principle.
