According to the Bible, they didn't want to have to
share their prosperity with every stranger who came

I suspect they could have found other means, but rape
was a pretty effective threat, and, as I said, a common
means of doing so at that time.

Plus which, they probably would have enjoyed the actual
intimidation and humiliation of the strangers.

Rape generally--including heterosexual rape--is not
about sex but about power.
