How did the Japanese force unwilling Chinese men to rape their own family members?

Was actual intercourse involved, or has history been exagerated? Stories about the Rape of Nanking always include this detail:
Japanese troops forced families to commit acts of incest: sons were forced to rape their mothers, fathers were forced to rape daughters. Monks who had declared a life of celibacy were forced to rape women for the amusement of the Japanese. Instances of Chinese men being forced to commit sex with corpses were not unheard of.

So how did this work, actually? If enemy soldiers insisted that I have sex with them watching, I certainly wouldn't be able to comply, 'specially with my mother.
