Abstract

In this chapter we look at intimate partner sexual violence (IPSV) perpetrators’ motivations and the myths that they may subscribe to in order to justify their sexual violence and avoid taking responsibility. By exploring the psychological and social factors that contribute to the mindset of men who rape, we aim to reduce victim-blaming and increase the understanding that is required to underpin prevention. Our aim in the chapter is also to challenge myths about who are “real” rapists.
