A “date rape” is a rape that is committed on a normal date and is a type of rape that has long been prevalent among high school and college youth. This 1985 production focuses on a high school couple who have been going together for six months, until the girl is a victim of date rape one night after a school dance. At the couple’s school, a counselor finds out about the date rape and invites a psychologist to lead a discussion about forced sex. The psychologist provides some sound advice about healthy sexual attitudes and offers some tips on how to guard against date rape. Produced by Gerald Schiller.
