This book examines the taboo topic of male-on-male rape. It looks at men's reluctance to report rape, focusing on male rape myths, including the idea that 'men who rape other men must be homosexual' and that 'real men can't be raped'. The book reveals that men are not only raped in prison, as is commonly believed, and that they suffer similar trauma to female survivors of rape. Abdullah-Khan explores the role of newspapers in dispelling or perpetuating these myths and examines the role of the police and their attitudes towards male rape survivors, also looking at people's perceptions of male rape compared to the realities of the experience of men who have been raped.
