Rapist Types and Methods of Avoidance

Power reassurance rapists

These are the most common types of rapists on college campuses. When rapes happen on dates, or at frat parties, they are most likely to be committed by this type of rapists. They are not wanting to harm their victim, while they may plan it ahead of time, more likely it is a crime of opportunity. Add to this the lack of good judgment and loss of inhibition that results from drinking lots of alcohol, and there you have the one of the scenarios for on campus rape.

 That is only one scenario, though. Other times the attack might be preplanned by the offender. Here is a break-down of the behavior aspects of the power reassurance rapist:


1. Power Rapists – Goal to Humiliate


Power Reassurance (a.k.a. “gentleman rapist,” opportunity rapist, compensatory)


Insecure; To possess, not harm; Feels inadequacy with women – much self-doubt; Restore self-confidence; Confirmation of manhood – ensure she enjoyed it; Often done in conjunction with another crime

The Attack

Method of Approach:

·         Blitz

·         Peeping Tom’s (to pre-select victim)

Method of Attack:

·         Mainly verbal

·         Threat of weapon, but often without having one, and any use of weapon will be one of opportunity

·         7-15 day cycle (biological clock)



·         Often socially awkward

·         Reassures victim’s safety

·         Will often attempt to instigate the victim to talk dirty to him, but he will rarely speak obscenely

·         Complimentary

·         Apologetic/expression of guilt


Things they might say:

I won’t hurt you, I just want sex”

“I want you to enjoy this, I’m sorry, I want anal sex, grab the lubricant because I don’t want to hurt you too much”

“I’m sorry I don’t know why but I had to do this, tell me if I hurt you but do as I say because if you don’t it might hurt”

“If you cooperate I will be your boyfriend, you are beautiful”


·         Attempts foreplay

·         Involves victim in sexual activity

·         Generally does not engage in alternate sexual practices, and if does, apologize to victim

·         Often asks the victim to undress herself, like in a relationship

·         Low aggression exhibited

·         Unselfish


·         Does not cause unnecessary harm

·         Relies on threat of weapon for compliance

Modus Operandi (MO)

·         Non-lethal

·         Unorganized

·         Selects victim in advance

·         Victim in close proximity of rapist

·         Attack for short period of time; longer with more compliance


·         Contacts victim post attack

·         Records attack

·         Takes personal items from victim

·         Often believes the experience was pleasurable for the victim

Personal Information

·         Average education level is 10th grade

·         Most often single and living with one or both parents

·         Few friends and no sex partner

·         Aggressive and possibly seductive mother

·         Menial occupation; steady worker

·         May be a transvestite, voyeuristic, exhibitionist, fetishist

·         Interested in pornography

·         Often unathletic and socially awkward


Methods of Avoidance

Will tend to terminate the rape if victim resists

Most likely of all rapists to be dissuaded if scream, cry, plead, or fight

Could be dealing with power assertive rapist starting off with softer approach – do not want to upset that rapist type

Start off with nonviolent tactics – crying, pleading, praying aloud – if he becomes verbally abusive, you do not have a power reassurance rapist

If you can attack his conscience, or his weak point, the better luck for avoiding the rape

Do not attempt to “talk him out of it” – he will interpret that as your enjoying it, like in a relationship – you must use more angry and shocking tactics

With this type of rapist, fight; although he will occasionally have a weapon, it is generally an empty threat and he will not want to deal with an overly resistant victim
