Summary:
Increased attention to intimate partner rape has resulted in clinical studies and population-based survey research. Tellis examines the situational context of intimate partner rapes reported to the police. This study seeks to make sexual assault visible in domestic violence by using extant typologies to examine the control context and co-occurrence of physical and sexual assault in intimate partner rape. Findings reveal a predominance of Intimate Terrorism and gratuitous physical violence in over half of the cases, but suspects use threats to foster victim compliance in the majority of cases.
