A form of violence specifically perpetrated against males is forcing them to rape family members, a practice known as forced incest, where both the rapist and the victim suffer the violence.

Rough Whore Blues, a poem by Dane (13)
we were the only mother and son team in our building
i would fuck her and men would watch
and we would
have to swear we were really related
and we would speedball
mama and i and i would do some tricks on the side
but no holding out on mama she knew where i lived
in her pussy and her twat so then i started getting
public hair so she shaved me cuz shaved was what
those tricks wanted
and i do not think of myself as no
whore but i thoughta her one and she owed money
to a dealer fuckingshit so he paid me to beat the cunt
off that bitch
i hated her and her fucking needles and
her crispy creams was all we ever had, you go live
in them projects you think it’s so funny boy i knock
your motherfucking teeth out your head
i hated that bitch
but men would pay us to watch me beat her up and
i beat her until that rough fucking whore turned
blue and if they paid me skank i’ll beat on you
so that is why i am a loser punk cutter dope bitch
who wants to die
with this disease please god i am so tired no
speedball can do me right
i have been sober a week and i hate it soaking
this chill in a thousand blankets
no one can get to me or hurt me
wrapped up in a thousand blankets
I AM, a poem by Jose (14)
I am my mother's cunt.
I am that cunt's empty house.
I got nothing at Xmas.
I am coming out of her cunt to escape her.
But she will not leave me alone.
She is drunk asleep.
She is drunk asleep.
I do not want her boyfriend to find me.
If they find me I will kill myself.
I will not go back.
I do not care what a court says.
I will not go back.
Her boyfriend gave me HIV.
Fuck all of them.
They made me fuck her.
I fucked my own mother.
Let her be alone in her empty house.
I hope that cunt dies.
I will kill myself.
I will prove it.
Women can be perpetrators. Male rape survivors... reported being forced to have intercourse with female fighters or guards while in detention. Most of these assaults were committed publicly, to cause humiliation. Even if not involved directly in forced sex, women may play a role as accomplices, facilitating repeated aggression or preventing the violation from being reported.
