Manny people in the “rape porn” thread in the Pit have admitted to having fantasies about rape (and at least one person tried to enact such a fantasy :D).
Is there anyone here who indulges in fantasies about being saved from a rape, or saving someone else from one? I would imagine there must be; the knight-in-armor/helpless maiden roles are (I think) more firmly ingrained in the collective unconscious than dominant/submissive roles. Or does anyone have fantasies about saving someone/being saved from anything, rape or otherwise? A lot of movie scenes play out one or the other of these ways.
When I was in grade 3, my friend Matthew Penarczyk and I used to play out scenes at a spot we called Damsel-in-Distress rock. First, I would cower and shriek on top of the rock while he fought off a dragon. Sometimes, afterwards, I would hop into his arms, and if we did it right, he wouldn’t fall down. Then he would lie on top of the rock, mortally wounded, and I would come along and heal him with apple juice. “You learned your roles early,” said my psych-major friend in college. “Male as rescuer; woman as nurturer.”
IRL, you’d need a third party to play out the near-rape scenario properly, but there are plenty of other options. There’s been a time or two when Mr. Rilch has been Wolverine, scaring off a pack of wild dogs, after which I reward him for his kindness. And sometimes when he’s really tired, we play it the other way.
Anyone else? C’mon…
