    If there was enough evidence that a woman drugged you to impregnate herself so she could sue you for child support, I would vote to convict her as a rapist if I were on the jury.

    Yes! It's is considered an under reported crime.
    In addition to statutory rape there are other instances as well.
    Roy J. Levin and Willy Van Berlo wrote in an article in the Journal of Clinical Forensic Medicine that slight genital stimulation or stress can create erections "even though no specific sexual stimulation is present." An erection does not mean that the men consent to sex.
    Tembisa, South Africa 2007: A 30-year-old woman was arrested for allegedly luring young men into a veld and forcing sex. 
    In Seattle during 2014, 26-year-old Chantae Gilman with second-degree rape after a man reportedly awoke from a deep sleep and found her on top of him in his bed. Police say he told the (240-pound) suspect to get off, but she allegedly refused and told him to be quiet. He was able to break free from underneath her and said he pushed her out of the apartment.
    In 2013 Cierra Ross, a 25-year-old was jailed after being accused of picking up a stranger in her car and forcing him to have sex with another woman in the back of the vehicle.
    Back in 2012, a Romanian woman named Luminita Perijoc, 31, reportedly pounced on Nicolae Stan, 35, after he delivered wine to her apartment in Tulcea, eastern Romania. At knife point, he had intercourse with her and then performed oral sex. But, when he couldn't perform a third time, she stabbed him six times before he managed to escape, lock himself in a bedroom and call the cops.
    In 2015 (Seoul Korea), Woman charged with raping husband after 'holding him prisoner for 29 hours to get favorable divorce evidence. The 40-year-old suspect, identified only by her surname Shim, has been charged with raping her husband. South Korea's Supreme Court recognized spousal rape as a crime in May 2013.
    A 2008 study of 98 men interviewed on the National Crime Victimization Survey found that nearly half of the men (46%) who reported some form of sexual victimization were victimized by women.
    In other instances there men who were forced to have sex with women not of their choosing. This has been reported in the prison system.
    Regarding female-on-male sexual misconduct, the US Dept. of Justice reports in its opening statement: Among the 39,121 male prison inmates who had been victims of staff sexual misconduct, 69% reported sexual activity with female staff; an additional 16% reported sexual activity with both female and male staff. “Nearly two-thirds of the male jail inmates who had been victimized said the staff perpetrator was female (64%).

    Yes, it is possible, because yes, a woman can rape a man. It's just often very under-reported because society typically does not take such claims very seriously.

      i have known men who have been raped, reported it to the police and they laughed and mocked him. The man simply walked back out the station and never bother to filed the report

    Depends on the country - in New Zealand, I discovered on the news the other day - a woman can only be charged with sexual assault or unlawful sexual connection but not rape.

    You could tell by the presenters voice that they thought that was unfair (and the presenter was a woman).

    I also think it's ridiculous. They should be able to be charged....but I think it's a problem with the definition of rape - in that it's about non consensual penetration of Genitalia by genitalia.

    So, the definition needs some adjusting to reflect that women are sometimes the accused.

    Now I've got to go and make a terribly strange Google search on it...because a woman can rape another women and it still not be considered rape by that definition.

    Clive......Quit your day dreaming, you devil, you!  Watch the movie "Disclosure" with Michael Douglas & Demi Moore.  I realize this film depicts sexual harassment but it should give you somewhat of an answer to your question.....LOL

    Rape is a crime no matter if man or yes, a woman could be charged.   MY question:  Do you happen to personally KNOW a man who would press those charges??   With or without a smile on his face?
    Yes, I'm being facetious! Don't get all defensive on me!!  LOL
