Summary
This documentary on gang rape and acquaintance rape is a compelling view of what is happening on college campuses. According to the Pennsylvania Coalition Against Rape, up to 80% of all rapes are acquaintance rapes, yet victims of rapes by strangers are ten times more likely to report their attack to police. Dating Rites includes an interview with gang-rape survivor Meg Davis, who tells how the attack still affects her life, even eight years later. We also hear from a convicted rapist, who gives compelling and disturbing insights into the psyche of the perpetrator. Included in the program is an eight minute re-enactment illustrating how a gang rape develops. The viewer will see, through the perspective of both men and women, how a party can turn into a tragedy. The documentary also calls upon professionals: rape crisis counselors, psychologists, and sociologists. Dr. Peter Germano, who runs a sexual treatment group at the state correctional institute, declares: "the college student who commits rape on campus, if not caught, will more than likely continue this behavior and rape again and again.".
