The Rape of the A*P*E* is a book by Allan Sherman, published in September 1973 by the Putnam Publishing Group, regarding sex and its historical repression and resurgence in the United States. The "A.P.E." on the title is a play on the words "ape" and the "American Puritan Ethic".
The book was the subject of much publicity, when it appeared, due to both its subject and author. Despite his ill health at the time, Sherman went on a two-week media tour to promote The Rape and appeared on many radio shows. He died on November 20, 1973, just two months after the book was published.
