“male power is very sexy … in … movies”

In “Blade Runner”, does Deckard rape Rachael? And was the sequence included to turn female viewers on?

I considered the question here, one of my posts which gets a lot of hits.

A further consideration of the rape question:


A commenter called fessie: Re: the love/rape angle, Harrison Ford can get away with anything. It’s a very tricky subject, because real rape isn’t romantic & shouldn’t be a form of entertainment. Ever. No means no & that’s that. But on the other hand, male power is very sexy, at least in the fantasy world of movies.

    Matthew Hutson: “In my personal experience, most women really appreciate subtle to moderate domination in the bedroom—a little forceful restraint, a little pain—as long as they feel safe.”
