One in four South African men questioned in a survey said they had raped someone and nearly half admitted having attacked more than one victim.
The MRC spoke to 1,738 men in KwaZulu-Natal and Eastern Cape provinces.
The research was conducted in both rural and urban areas and included all racial groups.
Using an electronic device to keep the results anonymous, the study found that 73% of respondents said they had carried out their first assault before the age of 20.
Almost half who said they had carried out a rape admitted they had done so more than once.

As an aside, it’s worth noting that about 70% of all the people who have ever tried to rip me off were Afrikaans.
No, if I ever go to the south of Africa, I shall not pass Botswana.
