Date Rape Prevention for Young Women

Updated on January 10, 2017

Stop Means Stop

In most sexual assault situations the woman thinks it's something she did to allow the rape to happen. But it's not the woman fault even if the date consisted of kissing and hugging, if the guy takes the physical contact further without the woman's consent, then it is a sexual assault/rape. Guys need to know when the woman is saying to him "No I don't want to have sex, please stop” (or something to that affect) then that means that No means No.

  • Let your family know the full name of the person you’re dating.

  • Ask your date to see his Identification Card to keep details of his I.D. in your memory.

  • It might be a good idea to do a back ground check on your date before dating him.

  • Meet your date in a well-lit area with people around.

  • Avoid being totally alone with him (your date).

  • Memorize his place of employment and/or his school.

  • Never let a date get physically aggressive with you even if it’s playful.

  • A proper hand-shake is appropriate for new daters instead of an embrace.

  • If possible have a family member take a photo of you and your date before leaving.

  • Notice red-flags in his conversation that seems twisted.

  • Realize guys that you know, are capable of raping women also.

  • Know that all rapist are not unattractive, there are rapist that are physically attractive.

  • Get to know as much as you can about him without sounding like your interrogating him.

  • If a guy can't keep his hands off of you during a date and it makes you uncomfortable, let him know that.

Also the victim may need to get a restraining order against the rapist, before and after the rapist is arrested.

Sexual Assault is the new word to use in all cases of sexual contact without consent (not rape or date rape).

The woman shouldn't feel guilty if she is raped by a guy that she previously had a relationship with, and he decided to violate her by rape. Counseling may be necessary after a rape case, and a thorough examination from a doctor that specializes in rape cases, most likely an emergency room physician.

After a rape incident the woman should keep the underwear that she wore the day of the rape, and keep any other evidence that the police can use to help the sexual assault case, such as possible text messages and voice messages from the suspect after the rape.

      "Never let a date get physically aggressive with you even if it’s playful." Your tips are all good, and should be taken seriously but this one "playful" needs some extra attention.

      Agreed, the victim is never the blame for rape, the rapist is sick in his mind for thinking he can do something so demonic.

      No has always meant no.

      Rapists and criminals have never had respect for the law.

      They "take" what they want.

      You offered some great commonsense tips.

      Unfortunately a lot of women are "offended" when someone gives them ways to reduce the odds of becoming a victim.

      The following has been said on more than one occasion by some women: "Even if a woman walks down a street butt naked no one has the right to rape her." (In other words she shouldn't have to be aware or concerned.) My question: "Is that the (smart) thing to do?"

      No one has the "right" to break into my home and yet I still lock my front door, pedestrians have "the right of way" and yet we look both ways before crossing a street. It's also not wise to walk down a street counting your money or leaving your car keys in your ignition....etc

      My hope is anyone who is told to take "precautions" when out on a date understands that "looking out for #1" is their responsibility and no one is "blaming the victim" when offering such advice.
