Who is doing the teaching? Who is learning? Is the media again acting as a poison and being the sole factor for many of these cases? Does just about everyone who is exposed to questionable media affected this way, as they would with any other main cause or poison?
A study of the fifty states and the District of Columbia found that close to 25 percent of women and 7.6 percent of men have been sexually assaulted and/or physically assaulted by a current or former spouse, cohabiting partner, or dating partner/acquaintance. Sometime during their lives (30 ).
Remember one person can have multiple victims so the actual number of perpetrators is probably lower. But can these numbers support the media as poison methodology?

Male rape does happen in films but it's extraordinarily rare.

The link between pornography and crime is unclear and the hoopla over it may distract other more clear causes of crime( 34 ).
