Male Sexual Armor: Erotic Fantasies and Sexual Realities of the Cop on the Beat and the Man in the Street

Dr. Suraci conducted personal interviews with police officers and with men in other occupations. In these case studies we get an intimate look into that very private world of conflict among a man’s sexual feelings, fantasies, desires, beliefs, fears and behavior. The conflict among these elements is often devastating.

The author discovered that men have a passive component--a desire to relinquish the burden of active, dominant, masculine sexuality. The rape fantasy is a dramatic example of this: many men have a fantasy not only of raping but of being raped, not only by a woman but sometimes even by a man.
