    Why is it that there are no reported cases in the courts of women Sexually Assaulting a man or a boy? Women are just as prone to violent behaviour of a sexual nature as males.

      A man is stronger. I cannot overpower a man. Unless he is drunk. I can hurt him, kill him, but unless I have a gun, what can I do? And most women are not violent by nature unless hungry and have their jewelry stolen. big_smile

    In my experience there was 1 assault by a woman for say 100 by men. It seems to me that men are more likely to commit serious crimes than women.

      I think the numbers of women prisons and those in them might adjust that number quite a bit.

    I think you're mistaken. Female teacher/male student violations are in the news and in court pretty regularly. Several of them are being tried as assaults.

      Male student is a boy not a man. It can be treated as an assault, but it is immaturity of both parties.

        Underage sex (with one party underage) is considered 'rape' in the UK.

        Your point may be completely accurate, but I don't think it's relevant to the question asked, is it? The question is "Why is it that there are no reported cases in the courts of women Sexually Assaulting a man or a boy?"

    sorry, I am just basing my judgement in working in an english crown court for five years!- only ever had one lady on a sexual matter and she was proven innocent

      I think on a more regional/local basis that your observations are probably accurate. Overall, I'm not so sure. It's hard to know without real numbers. But I do think it's documented that males are far more aggressive in violent behavior, overall.

      Even in the case of underage sex?

      I suspect that a case of an underage girl sleeping with an overage lad is taken more seriously in our society than an overage lady sleeping with a 6 ft 4" rugby playing 15 year old.

      And in that respect, those 'victims' would probably not be 'encouraged' by family to inform police in quite the same way that a female victim would.

      There have been numerous cases of that in the UK media. That said, I suspect that sexual assaults by males are much more prevelant than sexual offences by females for two primary reasons:

      1) Testosterone
      2) Physical strength

      And you know what? I see women walking up to men all the time in clubs grabbing their crotch or similar, if a man were to walk up to a woman in a club and do that he would be arrested and charged within hours.

        The "grabbing" in the club happened to me on several occasions, no one got arrested. However, they did get a fat slap in the face from my part.
        No one "grabs" me and gets away with it big_smile
