My teacher made my class read Margaret Atwood's "Rape Fantasies," which is a short essay on several ridiculous rape fantasies to point out what is so wrong with this topic as a form of entertainment. They were extremely enjoyable and funny to read, but I know no one else who has read them. I highly recommend you check them out. It will only take you 5 minutes to read and then you can tell me what you think.

Here is a link to a pdf version

Think it's only normal we all have different sex fantasies right?
I mean, even rape could be somewhat of one, even if it's a trigger for some people (me included). It could even be therapeutic if done right, seriously....
Well, fun to lol!!

Yes, absolutely. It can get some sexual aggression out, you know? And it's not hurting anyone, so really, what's the harm? There is none!

And I didn't even finish the pdf; I much prefer my own fantasies :D

No, not really, mainly just making up my own. It depends on what it is exactly, the context. It's very unfortunate when something like this should happen in reality, but I like to fantasize about it. Why do you ask?

I like reading erotic stories, I get quite a charge out of them. The site I read from has many different genres in it. I was going to share it if your interested, but you don't seem to be. It's not only rape stuff, it's all kinds of stuff. Some is pretty twisted, I'm not really into that, but some are pretty cool stories

Well, like I said, it depends on the context. So I can never say if I like something until I've read it. Twisted? Hmm, now my curiosity is up, please share.

I think you guys have missed the point of "Rape Fantasies" probably because you did not read it. They are not erotic fantasies. Margaret Atwood was a feminist writer and "Rape Fantasies" is her comedic essay that criticizes how society has romanticized rape.

Forgive me, I have a tendency to not understand this type of writing right off the bat. I didn't find it comedic, not my cup o' tea.
