Very timely question. There was an interview in Time on this very question, with Amy Schalet.

Amy Schalet is a researcher of sexuality and culture (comparative sexuality), authorcurrently assistant professor of sociology at UMass. She has her Ph.D in sociology from UC Berkeley. Schalet's book is Not Under My Roof: Parents, Teens and the Culture of Sex. For more information about her credentials, see: Amy Schalet: Bio at UMass.

Schalet disagrees with this idea that boys and men are uncontrollably in rut and that women simply have to be protected. She says the facts tend to bear out that boys and men are very romantic and normally conceive of sex as a part of a relationship.

Here's the chilling part. Schalet concludes that societies which fear and suppress sexual behavior tend to create more men who are sexual bullies. So the cultures which put in place these protective (i.e. fear-driven) strategies are actually creating the very problem they say they are trying to solve. It's a vicious cycle.
