I wish I’d never reported my rape

During subsequent telephone conversations with the detective, he suggested that I was perhaps mistaking rough sex for rape. He advised me that, “some men will just want to have sex with you and never talk to you again.” It shocked me that he could find any way to interpret what happened to me as a consensual sexual encounter. I began to worry that the detective himself viewed me as a sex object – not as a victim.
