I think this was covered in a book written by Russ Funk, who founded Men Against Rape. As I recall it covers the medical facts for both genders. Unfortunately, it seems to have walked out of my bookcase, someone must have needed it. I can't remember the title offhand.

At any rate, many doctors have testified about this at rape trials, because it used to be a common defense that the victim either 'asked for it' or 'enjoyed it.'
A knowledge of the body's reactions under extreme duress helps the jury sort through the testimony of both parties.
