Lay me on the table, put flowers in my mouth
And we can say we invented a summer lovin' torture party

Masculine subcultures with high rates of group rape share a core set of social norms, values, and practices. According to O’Sullivan (1998), these include: (a) women being viewed as a threatening “other”; (b) heterosexual sex without intimacy (men who are tender with women are ridiculed as “pussy-whipped”); (c) pervasive homophobia; (d) a sense of entitlement due to their group prestige; (e) cooperation combined with competition, especially competition to perform risky acts; (f) cultural practices of misogyny, such as songs and jokes glorifying sexual violence; (g) sharing of sexuality, for example through mandatory reporting of sexual experiences and through voyeuring, or watching each other have sex; and (h) hazing as a common practice.
