I think that there is a major problem with this that you need to consider. Rapists often have been sexually abused in their childhoods. I do not think for such individuals receiving 'cardinal' punishment will teach them anything if their experience of sex as being damaging to a person is reinforced. I also doubt that the rape victims would feel much better from this-it would be better to have the victim confront the rapist with the rapist restrained sufficiently, though I am not sure how well that would work.
Well, I've heard from one rape victim on Gaia who said she confronted her rapist, and he responded to her by admitting that yes, he did rape her. And that he was a horrible person, but couldn't take the action back. She said that that was part of her healing experience. So... maybe?
