Stevens, Dennis J. (1994) Predatory rapists and victim selection techniques.  The Social Science Journal.  31.n4. 

The study examines predatory rape exclusively and interviews predatory rapists themselves by training other convicted felons as interviewers. Rapists tend to deny any involvement in rape, making it difficult to study. Young females are generally considered the "easiest prey." 66% of the rapists characterized their victims as "easy prey," meaning they may have been children or weaker women.
