I've been lead to believe that there is a scene in either the book or the movie where Hermione is raped/sexually assaulted by Malfoy, did this actually happen?

Edit: while the OP has not provided us with any info, reading this question I could see how a reader might be confused when thinking about the scene where Bellatrix and Fenrir Greyback torture Hermione in Malfoy Mannor. The movie version is exceptionally creepy with Bellatrix biting Hermione.

    not to go all skeptics.se on you but... "someone said" is a very broad claim and not much to go on. Is there something that you read/saw in one of the works that leads you to believe this? Otherwise this is just unanswerable speculation...

    Would they really have sex with a muggle born? Nov 1 '16 at 20:43

    There was that one fanfic where Voldie won, and Hermione was to Death Eaters what Leia was to Jabba (without the PG13 rating), but Draco was actually a (kinda) good guy there Nov 1 '16 at 20:50
  • Having read all 7 books and watched all 8 movies, I can tell you there are definitely NO sexual scenes, implicit OR explicit, in any of them. There is torture, there is is murder, there is racism against various species, there's a bit of gore even, but there are are no sexytimes and very little cursing. JK Rowling is very particular in what she deems appropriate for Children's / YA fiction. Nov 4 '16 at 9:57

There is no evidence in the books or the movies that Hermione was raped by Draco. Or, as pointed out by ibid, "in any of Rowling's other writings/interviews".

    I feel like it's possible there are some interactions that could be considered sexual assault, if you were to squint, but I can't remember and I really don't want to google it Nov 1 '16 at 19:59
  • @JasonBaker - By Draco vis-a-vis Hermione?

    And that would still be Bellatrix, anyway, not Draco.

    @JasonBaker - I do not recall Malfoy ever even touching Hermione, or perhaps even casting a spell at her. He insulted her and used a whole lot of slurs, though.

When would he have had opportunity? In Malfoy Manor (book 7)? At the same time he is horribly conflicted and is willing to betray Voldemort by not revealing Harry Potter?

The whole pure-blood mania about the contamination of mud-bloods and not having any contact with them would also preclude this. There has been some discussion that rape is a form of subjugation for undesirables. In this case I would think they would view any contact with a mud-blood as making themselves unclean.

And there is nothing written or otherwise to support, with the exception of unsubstantiated speculation.
