Pornography and Rape
* Based on U.S. Census estimates of the number of adult women in America,
one out of every eight adult women, or at least 12.1 million American women,
has been or will be the victim of forcible rape in her lifetime.
* In one study, 86% of rapists admitted to regular use of pornography,
with 57% admitting actual imitation of pornography scenes in commission of sex crimes.
* Rape has risen by 500% in the United States since in 1960, which is a higher rate than non-sexual crimes has increased.
This increase directly parallels the increase in availability and the severity of pornography.
At the present time, a rape is reported every 46 seconds in the United States.
* One study showed that states with a high circulation rate of pornography had a higher rape rate than states with lower circulation rates.
In 1983, Alaska and Nevada had the highest per capita readership of pornography and the highest rape rate.
* 82% of rape victims knew the person who assaulted them.
* In a 1991 survey, 33% of high school boys said that they think they have the right to rape their date when she is drunk,
40% believe they have the right to rape after dating six months, and 60% think they can rape the girl they plan to marry.
* 33% of rape victims contemplate or attempt suicide.
