Just wanted to provide an interesting comparison. The true story of Maria Goretti's heroism in the midst a sexual assault--she preferred death over voluntary submission--is used to encourage Catholic adolescent girls to remain virgins.

More contrast: In Heaven's Girl, the rapists are converted because Marie Claire submits with affection to their violent assault. In the true story of Maria Goretti, the rapist repents and is converted by her forgiveness and purity.

I frankly found the original ML "Let Her Gang Bang 'Em" absolutely revolting. Berg so obviously got his jollies talking about how to depict his rape fantasies that I wanted to vomit.
