Second wave feminist, Germaine Greer, has long championed female sexuality as a means to overturn patriarchy. It is curious, then, that Greer turns the table in her somewhat cynical shot at women who mistake sex for rape and for failing to understand the predicament of men in terms of having to try to work out what constitutes consent. Thus, in the context of ‘marital’ rape, men are the victims rather than their partners. Here, I draw on my own experience Germaine Greer On Rape to explore bias inherent in her most recent examination of consent in On Rape (Melbourne University Press, 2018) in particular her fixation on rape as a middleclass preoccupation.
