In this podcast, psychologist Chitra Raghavan explains the concepts of "coercive sex" and "sexual assault" as they apply to people who know one another. Operating from the assumption that all sexual relationships are about negotiation, and that the rules of negotiation may differ across cultures and gender roles, Raghavan outlines how unwanted sex is acquired through a variety of emotionally coercive dynamics in heterosexual couples and posits that different rules apply in same-sex couples.
Chitra Raghavan, PhD, is an associate professor in the Department of Psychology at John Jay College of Criminal Justice.
