Prabhupada is the Propagator of ISKCON which is a world wide organization and which is related to vaishnavism.

I came to know about following remarks made by him about women.

It is not that the woman do not like rape. They like sometimes. They willingly. That is the psychology. Outwardly they show some displeasure, but inwardly they do not. This is the psychology.

Prabhupada Conversation May 11, 1975

SB 4.25.41, Purport: 

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.

On what basis did he derive such conclusion?

Do bhagvatam and other related texts really support such ideas?

What are the views of other scholars on the verse ?
