An interesting video essay by The Pop Culture Detective Agency exploring how men are routinely sexually demeaned (largely by other men) in movies and TV for the lolz.  To wit:

It’s hard to overstate just how common jokes about men being sexually assaulted are in entertainment media. Most popular comedic actors engage in this type of humour. Jokes are typically designed to demean, humiliate, control, or emasculate a male character for being the victim, or potential victim, of sexual violence.

Any excuse.

    Deliverance was the first time I ever copped on to the fact that a man could rape a man. Scared the bejesus out of me.

    I heard that there are more males rape victims in America than women. When you take prison into account.

      Yeah, I heard that too and because its never talked about, it remains near impossible to get figures on it.

      Apparently, rape is almost guaranteed in some prisons if you are not already a member of some gang or another?
