I can see both sides of it, actually.

On the one hand, you could have a reader who experienced rape and sees it being compared to something much, much less atrocious, walking away disgusted. On the other hand, I think most readers will understand that the analogy was meant to be a lighthearted joke—one that doesn't intend to trivialize rape or cause offense, even if it does end up doing so.

I can't really speak for OP, but I think he deserves the benefit of the doubt here.
