    It's serious stuff...I am surprised at the findings. I don't think the survey size is large enough. But still the findings are shocking.

    I have a horrible theory that as men lose more control and power in society and relationships, rape may increase. I personally advocate physical castration as punishment. I think this would act as a massive deterant for most rapes. I think there will be less false claims too if this was the punishment.

    I think with that we also need improved education in schools - 'no' means 'no'.

    And to add one more thing. I don't think any male has the excuse in any situation of rape. Non-consensual is rape.

    I hope you mean South Africa - not the UK.
