Asked 15 adult rape victims to rate, retrospectively, their satisfaction with 23 sex-related activities prior to and after the rape. Sexual satisfaction with a wide variety of sex-related behaviors decreased substantially following the rape, although autoerotic and primarily affectional experiences appeared to be unaffected by the rape. Moreover, the current satisfaction with sexual relations reported by rape victims was significantly less than that reported by a nonraped sample, even though the 2 groups did not differ in terms of frequency with which they engaged in various sexual activities or experienced orgasms.
