Burgess and Holmstrom (1974) have described rape as less a sexual act than an 'act of violence with sex as the weapon'.

"Speaking of a sweeping revision of the California statutes conceming rape, she said, “It will make things easier for the victim, but nothing will really change the number of rape convictions or the number of reports until we convince the public that rape is a crime of violence, not of sex." --The Nation (1975)- Volume 221 - Page 113, Ben Horin, D. Is rape a sex crime? The Nation, 1975, 221, 112-115.
