What is the Mechanics of Non-Consensual Oral Sex?

The escapades of Dominique Strauss-Kahn have become a topic of worldwide discussion in the last week. Apparently he forced a maid, Nafissatou Diallo, to perform oral sex on him.

While I am no expert in the field of rape or sexual assault, one has to wonder-

How can a 62 year old guy of average build FORCE a 30-something woman who is almost 6 feet tall to blow him? What is the mechanics of non-consensual blowjobs?

Forcible vaginal or anal penetration is possible. A forced titfuck or something similar between her buttcheeks is doabale. Even ejaculating on her without her consent is within the limits of my imagination. But how can a guy get a woman to blow him against her will, unless he has a weapon or could get her killed if she did not comply. If DSK had threatened her with a weapon, or something along those lines, we would have heard it by now.

Short of possessing a credible threat of lethal violence, why would any guy willing put his dick in the mouth of an unwilling woman?

I am not saying that there was no sexual contact or even an element of assault in whatever happened in that hotel room. However the whole idea that he willingly put his dick in the mouth of a scared, unwilling and likely angry woman appears somewhat bizzare. It is far more likely that it was aggressive flirting gone wrong than anything close to most people’s idea of sexual assault or rape.
