This article provides estimates of the incidence of unwanted sexual experiences on one college campus. Based on a self-administered survey, it is estimated that 34% of the women had experienced contact; 20% experienced attempted intercourse; and 10% experienced completed intercourse. It is argued that the stranger-acquaintance dichotomy should be abandoned in favor of a typology that explicitly includes reference to the context which brings the victim and perpetrator together. Different types of policies are required for different types of unwanted experiences.
