Why Do Men Rape? (3/7/00)

Date of this Version

March 2000


Is rape about power and domination? Or is it simply a savage and demented way for men to reproduce? A controversial new book called A Natural History of Rape is sparking this argument. The authors contend that rape is a way for males to spread their seed and their genes to the next generation. Other experts in the field say the book and the theory are unfounded and ridiculous. Guests include book co-author and University of New Mexico biologist Randy Thornhill and Carolyn Ford of the Albuquerque Rape Crisis Center.
