One in four South African men … said they had raped someone … three out of four who admitted rape attacked for the first time while in their teens.
… practices such as gang rape were common because they were considered a form of male bonding.
The research was conducted in both rural and urban areas and included all racial groups.
… the study found that 73% of respondents said they had carried out their first assault before the age of 20.
Almost half who said they had carried out a rape admitted they had done so more than once.
One in 20 men surveyed said they had raped a woman or girl in the last year.
