'Excuse for rape' seduction site targeted by French
A group of feminists on Thursday asked French authorities to investigate a website offering advice on seduction that they described as tantamount to advocating rape.
The legal action follows unsuccessful attempts to get the French Interior Ministry to close down the French-language version of "Seduction by Kamal", a site registered in Poland which also has an English edition.
The move was triggered by an article on the site entitled, "How to screw well: the three secrets of hard sex."
In it, readers are advised: "Don't ask her if you can penetrate her like a wild animal, just do it. Show her that she does not really have a choice."
It adds: "She complains? Not for long!"
Yael Mellul, a lawyer and member of the Collective of Feminists and Citizens, said the site should be closed down.
"The explicit terms used amount to an excuse for rape and the incitement of violence against women," she told AFP.
"It is not some tiny blog -- according to its creator it gets 20,000 visitors per day and his Facebook page has 17,000 followers."
Mellul's group has brought the content of the site to the attention of public prosecutors in Paris who will now have to assess whether the controversial sections breach any law.
