Laws of success with women and dating
English rape was in use since the 14th century in the general sense of "seize prey, take by force", from raper, an Old French legal term for "to seize", in turn from Latin rapere "seize, carry off by force, abduct".
The Latin term was also used for sexual violation, but not always.
