From the Paper:

"Date rape has been identified as a health concern as it puts both the victim and the perpetrator at a higher risk of contracting an illness. Date rape can be understood as an unwanted or forced sexual intercourse between persons on a date. Date rape has been variously referred to as acquaintance rape as it is normally perpetrated by an individual who is close to and well known by the victim. As a health concern, date rape is a cross gender health issue as both males and females may constitute victims depending on the scenario (Black & Gold, 2008).
"With regard to prevalence, date rapes tend to pervade all societies with high risk groups constituting of adolescents and young adults who are involved in relationships. Such intimately involved persons are at a higher risk of being forced into a non consensual intercourse by a partner who may seek sexual dominance. This may involve use of physical force such as assault or psychological pressure such as threats by the partner to end the relationship compelling the victim to give in to unwanted sexual advances. Consequently, this practice puts the involved individuals at a greater health risks with the victims experiencing additional psychological trauma as a result of the abuse (Black & Gold, 2008)."
