Audiobook History and Physical Examination: A Common Sense Approach …Although legal and medical definitions vary, rape is typically defined as oral, anal, or vaginal penetration that involves threats or force against a person who is unwilling ie, nonconsenting or incapacitated because of cognitive or physical disability or intoxication. Such penetration, whether wanted or not, is considered statutory rape if victims are younger than the age of consent. Typically, rape is an expression of aggression, anger, or need for power; psychologically, it is more violent than sexual. Sexual assault is rape or any other sexual contact that results from coercion, including seduction of a child through offers of affection or bribes; it also includes being touched, grabbed, kissed, or shown genitals. However, actual prevalence may be higher because rape and sexual assault tend to be underreported. Females are raped and sexually assaulted more often than males. Male rape is often committed by another man, often in prison.

The problem is, we are not alone, as physical examination is indeed a dying art in today's medical practice. We remember elicitation of clinical signs would be the essence of learning clinical medicine when we were in Medical school. How often we would especially go to acute medical wards to listen to the early diastolic murmurs in the aortic area and a pan systolic murmur in the mitral area! Missing out a split second heart sound was a real embarrassment.
