Dropping the soap

verb Word formation type: Analogy
The result of a man in jail dropping his soap in the bathroom and having to pick it up. This leaves his buttocks open to his fellow inmates who will then proceed to sexually assault him.
 
What was originally a harmless phrase became a link to non-consensual sexual activity. This phrase developed from the jail community where men, with a lack of women present, become desperate for some sort of physical gratification. Now, the term has broadened to encompass other kinds of 'rape' where the victim was particularly open and defenseless.
Etymology : Developed from the jail community as an analogy.
