The word rape is now outdated and not new to hear. Historically, the term rape is biased. Whenever we hear that 'rape has happened' we automatically interpret the incident of rape and associate it with the perpetrator man and the victim woman. Generally, the meaning of the word rape is 'a sexual offense committed against a woman without the consent of the woman'. Hardly anyone pays attention to male rape. Men are always classified as perpetrators and not as victims. But now in-depth research is needed to take up the issue of male rape as well. The present study intended to focus upon the issues and problems relating to the term ‘Male Rape'.The proposed topic is chosen to aware of why genuine action is needed for the offenders of male rape.
