Most perpetrators are known by the victims of sexual assaults.
Rape is normally done to show dominance over the victim, this act is normally shown over people who the perpetrators know.
Men can be raped too.
It's just that men are more embarrassed and might get laughed away if they tell their friends.
The age of consent is 16, but the age of marriage is 18.
This is confusing because the legal age of marriage is 18 and legally you can only have sex in North Carolina when married, but the age of consent 16, so technically you can not have sex when 16 even though the law says you can consent to it.
