According to the FBI “the rate of forcible rapes in 2007 was estimated at 59.1 offenses per 100,000 female inhabitants” (U.S. Department of Justice, 2008, p. 2).

Also they state these facts:Because of these issues Thronhill and Palmer suggest that rape is a ” a natural, biological phenomenon that is a product of the human evolutionary heritage.” (p. 2). They show evidence
