I would consider it a very different thing, encountering such beings in a human-initiated process like ayahuasca sessions. In Whitley's case the 'rape' was imposed, although he seems to have fully retreated from the literal take by now:

Yes, I get that take and I'm sure it applies sometimes. Then there's the matter of how deep belief can manifest body marks, eg stigmata.
