Why do you ask?: You have a right to sleep in a secure place with a locked door and a means of self protection. Despite all the disinformaton, the vast majority of men would never think of assaulting you and would actively protect you from a man even bothering you in public. If you are in a dangerous environment, try to get away. But these are thoughts you should not be having. Your physician can help
