4. I know that rape and sexual assault are about power, but it also happens because

some people are so focused on their own desires that they don't notice the other person's reactions. It's selfishness. If you go out with someone with the basic purpose of getting laid instead of getting to know the other person and enjoying their company, it's easy to find yourself in a situation in which you're trying to talk your date into something that she/he had no intention of doing. Unless someone invites you over for a booty call or you've gotten signals from the other person that they want to get laid, you don't need to go out with people you're only interested in for sex.
