Following the start of the #MeToo movement, a French woman has awoken the wrath of many when she came out to criticism the movement claiming that some rape victims enjoy the experience.
The #metoo movement is aimed at eradicating ‘the widespread prevalence of sexual assault and harassment, in the wake of sexual misconduct allegations against Harvey Weinstein.’
The woman identified as Brigitte Lahaie, a porn star-turned-agony aunt, made this known on French television, saying some women have orgasms when they are raped.
Lahaie, ended up being disowned by other signatories in the ‘100 women’ group, that includes film star Catherine Deneuve.
According to The Times, Lahaie, 62, has since apologised for the statement saying ‘my remarks were taken out of context.’ She however still repeated her view.
What I meant to say – because I know matters of sexuality by heart – is that sometimes the body and the mind do not coincide.
