The scene is played somewhat for laughs. *Robin Hood saves her from being raped. *What I found particularly insulting in this movie is that after he saves her from the near rape, he immediately starts kissing her and ‘making out’ with her. I just don’t think this would be possible in a real life situation- she would still be very afraid and likely in shock. Rape isn’t just something you can brush off.

*A woman is dehumanized as she (willingly) wears a contraption that allows men to have intercourse with her without seeing any part of her above the waist. She also cannot see them. She is used by many men this way.

The Rookie (1990) *A woman ties up a man and rapes him. S&M is part of this scene.

Roots (1977) (mini series) *This series is a saga of African-American life, based on the family history of Alex Haley.

The book is more graphic than the movie, so please take care if you decide to read this story. *The men who kidnap Kunte strip him naked, rub him with oil and inspect his naked body including his orifices. I believe the sexual assaults are shown in this scene. *Slaves taken captive are put on a slave ship. Selected women are chosen to be raped by the captain of the vessel. *The captain justifies the rapes by saying something along the lines of “It’s good for the crew to bang the wenches.” *A woman (Kizzy) is raped by her new “owner”.
