Sorry for Daily Mail link

This can't be real? People actually would pay for this and call it entertainment? I can understand if you like horror movies that you might like the idea of paying to be scared but this attraction is taking it one step too far....

Appalling.

We need someone to post who has actually been there and can tell us that it's the usual Daily Mail exaggerating. Please? [hopeful]

Because otherwise.....

what kind of person would sign up to be the simulated rapist?

I can't believe what I just read.

quoteunquote Thu 17-Oct-13 22:18:22

grim that people want this.

FortyDoorsToNowhere Thu 17-Oct-13 22:19:14

It sounds very BDSM.

You can't simulate rape, rape is a real crime with devastating outcomes.

Dirty bastards, this is a total affront to our our civilised society! We are growing uglier and crueller in every aspect of our existences. Desensitised.

Footface Thu 17-Oct-13 22:25:04

Dirty bastard is right, another example of violence against women becoming acceptable and mainstream

I don't care that people are forewarned about exactly what will happen to them before they go in and therefore it is all consensual and so acceptable. What I AM horrified and disbelieving about is that people want and pay for this thing at all. Seriously what has happened to people that they would want to do this - for fun?

It IS desensitising. People used to be scared on the bloody ghost train and that was enough.

Not my cup of tea, but I'm not sure it should be banned s'long as all involved make informed decisions.

I read the link and the comments at the bottom. All the talk about a real rape victim wouldn't go there is BS. What about all the women who get coerced into it because they've never told anyone about their rape. What about the women who are in a relationship with a rapist or abuser who will get off on putting their partners through this. What about the women who will, quite legitimately, assume that "sexually explicit" is much tamer than this because ordinarily to become involved in something like this you'd have to pay much higher fees, join a club, or find your own like-minded circle. You can't usually just walk in off the street and pay £3.50 for it.

I have no problem with sex games. I have a big problem with anything that portrays rape as commercial entertainment.

AnaisHellWitch Thu 17-Oct-13 22:29:30

Since when did "sexually explicit" mean likely to contain simulated rape? Did they do this to the male visitors?

Somewhere it mentioned there is a "safe word" so you can leave early if you don't like it. Really? You are able to speak when you have a pillow shoved over your face?

AnaisHellWitch Thu 17-Oct-13 22:31:02

Sorry, agree on the matter of simulated rape as a term.

Interesting point, Anais, I wonder whether the male visitors do get treated the same?

The whole "scare attraction" thing just isn't my bag - I grew out of horror films years ago. The only people I know who have been to the one near me are women. Daft ones , as well. Don't know any men who have been.

Disgusting

LegoCaltrops Thu 17-Oct-13 22:39:31

I'm not even reading it because I get the idea from the previous posters what it's about & I really don't want to read it. Sounds vile. sadangry

pigsDOfly Thu 17-Oct-13 22:40:55

What the hell? Is this real?

That was my first thought Loosing, what sort of people are actually carrying out the abuse? I suspect they're enjoying it more than the paying customers.

Not sure how people (women) can be making an informed choice to take part in this because, if I'm reading it correctly, the whole point of it is that until they get in there they don't actually know what is going to happen to them.

Just vile.

gamerchick Thu 17-Oct-13 22:42:45

There's a market so there's a profit.

Personally I think we're heading towards a running man future so this doesn't cross my eyes much.

The Internet plays a big part in desensitisation the more it happens the more extreme people go to get that scared/repulsed/horrified feeling. The linked attraction isn't personally my bag but it will be for others.

pianodoodle Thu 17-Oct-13 22:44:45

What if people go in and are terrified someone genuinely disturbed had got in and was actually really attacking them?!

That's what I'd think as no way would I be expecting that no matter what the disclaimer!

Bloody hell... I can't believe that's real!

Footface Thu 17-Oct-13 22:45:20

I honestly find it shocking, there is no informed decision as I got the impression you really don't know what going to happen before you go in.

The only people I can imagine enjoying this kind of shit, are those with a clip board taking notes for their next victim.

FortyDoorsToNowhere Thu 17-Oct-13 22:46:53

How can it be rape if it is consensual.

Not in a million years would any one ever be able to stimulate rape.

With this scene it's about what could the dom do, the thrill is not knowing what can come next. It's a turn on for some people. It's controlled hence the safe word or if you can talk a prompt.

Rape you have no control. You can't stop it and it going to happen regardless of what you do.

Caitlin17 Thu 17-Oct-13 22:47:54

I don't think it's The Mail exaggerating. I read an article in The Guardian a while ago about a similar "entertainment" in the US.

FortyDoorsToNowhere Thu 17-Oct-13 22:48:38

Can't talk

Yes, Pigs, I was wondering whether they have to pass some kind of psychological assessment to work there. Perfect opportunity for the next Dennis Neilson to get his kicks.
