Sexual Assault Against Men Played for Comedy

A list of movies in which the sexual assault of men is either played for laughs or joked about. When it's a woman assaulting a man, it's meant to be funny, and the guy usually ends up enjoying it. When it's a man assaulting another man, the humor is usually rooted in homophobia, especially when it involves prison rape. When the prison rape joke is directed at a male villain, it's typically framed as him "getting what he deserves." All of these scenarios contribute to the dismissal of and silence around sexual assault in our culture.
