But you can google "women enjoy rape Prabhupada" and find some sources yourself.
Some sources with plenty of examples:

Not to argue. Tired of it. This is what happens when one culture appraises another from random books and websites. That comment is translation of something written somewhere in Hindu scriptures (conversation between sage Narada and King Puranjana). There are probably millions of verses in Hinduism and he wrote the commentary of one word vikhyatam in one of them as rape! vikhyatam means famous hence why he wrote rape is confusing.
In this regard, the word vikhyātam is very significant. A man is always famous for his aggression toward a beautiful woman, and such aggression is sometimes considered rape. Although rape is not legally allowed, it is a fact that a woman likes a man who is very expert at rape.
He probably wanted to say "women like men who conquer them with vigour and force" (just an example .. do not get started on this) and he wrote it using one word "rape". Put it down to mis-translation.
