All I can say to those quoting " a leopard can't change it's spots or rehabilitation doesn't work." and suggesting punishments such as "castration" is, "does this also apply to murderers, drug dealers etc that all destroy lives?" Think on how some are in a manner that is grotestly worse than many actual Sex Offences.
I remember discussing the legal limits surrounding "coercion" in offences with my PO when on licence. (Random conversation nothing to do with my offence)
I offered the example - how many partners have persuaded, by one means or another, their partner to have sex when originally the partner had stated they NO?. They did not know the answer and could not see the relevance.
I offered the following as relevance:
"with strangers it could be classed as "R--E. Therefore as sex education to certain age groups promently speak of "not giving into peer/partner pressure to have sex", so should that not the case in a "mature relationship, therefore implying R--E has been committed? As a figure of how manner do this would not be properly gained, I would suggest that they are higher that the percentages of the population who commit a sex offence.
Therefore it could be suggested that a high, yet unknown, number of society have / are committing a sex offence without being punished.
That would include those writing and offering punishments such as written about above!
I was informed I was thinking too deep about what is and what is not an offence!
It could be argued that the majority of the human race has committed a sex offence when using the understanding of sex offences by today's society
Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope is for tomorrow else what is left if you remove a mans hope.
