This is an important information for females of all ages.

Rape is one of the most frequently committed crimes in our society.

Hardly a day passes, without the crime of rape being committed.

Women, girls, men and boys are all victims of this crime, but if you want to prevent or avoid being raped, you will need to follow these steps.

Avoid dressing seductively

Action “speaks louder than words”. When a woman, man or girl dresses half naked, he/she is saying through his/her action, “I am available to any man/woman that needs me”. When you dress seductively, you are exposing yourself to the danger of being raped.

Avoid keeping late nights

Any woman or girl who keeps late nights, especially at unknown places or unfamiliar territories, is only inviting trouble to him/herself. This is because the night is a dangerous time to be out alone in the dark. It is a time when people hide under darkness to commit all kinds of crime

Avoid attending wild parties
This is because when people are drunk or under the influence of drugs, they can do all kinds of crazy things.

Avoid drinking alcohol

Avoiding alcoholic beverages, and or excessive drinking, is a very wise thing to do if you don’t want to be vulnerable to rape. This is because when you are drunk, you are vulnerable to raping or being raped. More so, you don’t stand the risk of being drunk if you don’t drink at all.

You can even wake up from your drunken state without recognizing the face of the person that raped you or that you raped. Also alcohol breaks your will power and makes you too weak to fight back

Avoid going to places and visiting people you suspect might rape you

So many times a lot of ladies have taken some people they had
suspected for granted and have regretted it.

If you are suspecting you are vulnerable of being raped at a certain place or a persons house, you just have to avoid visiting such places.

Trust your instincts

Don’t underestimate your own judgment, if you feel uncomfortable in someone’s company avoid being secluded with them and be firm if coercion is attempted.

Attackers will more often prey on people who look vulnerable and seem easily manipulated.

Keep an eye on your drink

Date rapists can lace drink with flavorless chemicals. Dont go back to a drink if you’ve left it unattended, and don’t accept an open drink from a stranger

Fight back

If someone attempts to rape you,.fight back with everything at your disposal. When I say “fight back” I mean with your teeth, fingernails and any other instruments you can lay your hands on.

If its not working, aim at his manhood give it a kick as if your life depends on it,because it does and if you have any opportunity to escape, please don’t hesitate

Stay alert

By avoiding headphones which impair your ability to hear ambient sounds or hats that blocks your peripheral vision. Be aware of people in the area, ahead and behind you.

Learn basic self defense moves

Preparing yourself for a potential attack allows you to react better when faced with the fear and stress of the situation.

Move with confidence

Someone who looks purposeful and physically capable is less appealing target

Struggle and yell if attacked

Note,any one can be a victim, have this at the back of your mind just in case.

Other important tips

If someone grabs you, you can’t beat them with strength but you can by outsmarting them.

If you are grabbed around the waist from behind, pinch the attacker either under the arm between the elbow and armpit or in the upper inner thigh very hard.
