Chitra Raghavan Intimate aggression: Understanding sexual coercion

In this podcast—part of The Vera Institute of Justice Research Speaker Series—psychologist Chitra Raghavan explains the concepts of "coercive sex" and "sexual assault" as they apply to people who know one another. Operating from the assumption that all sexual relationships are about negotiation, and that the rules of negotiation may differ across cultures and gender roles, Raghavan outlines how unwanted sex is acquired through a variety of emotionally coercive dynamics in heterosexual couples and posits that different rules apply in same-sex couples.
