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.
