It is important to note that the common denominator in abduction myths is not the victim's gender, but their beauty
Hercules cum comes Argonautis accessisset, Ylam Thiodomantis filium admirandae pulchritudinis iuvenem secum duxit armigerum, qui remum fregit in mari cum pro suis remigat viribus. Cuius reparandi gratia Misiam petens silvam fertur ingressus. Ylas, vero cum aquatum cum urna perrexisset, in fluvium cecidit undae a nymphis raptus esse dicitur. Quem dum Hercules quaerens ab Argonatuis impeditus esset,in Misia est relictus. Postea cum cognitum esset in fonte eum perisse, statuta sunt ei sacra, in quibus mos fuerat ut nomen eius clamaretur Yla omne sonaret.
--Vatican Mythographers II.227
When Hercules joined the Argonauts, he brought with him the incredibly beautiful Hylas as his squire. During the trip, he broke an oar while he was rowing, so the crew headed to the forests of Mysia for repairs. While Hylas was gathering water, he fell into a river and is said to have been abducted by the water nymphs there. When Hercules went looking for him and the Argonauts tried to stop him, they left him behind in Mysia. Later on, when he realized that Hylas drowned, sacred rites were dedicated to him: his name “Hylas!” is proclaimed.

known about the author or origin of the collection of myths known as the Vatican
Mythographers, but the work’s first editor Angelo Mai found the
collection on a manuscript dating back to the 10th century CE.
This volume is a collection of three different mythographers who have
assembled various Greco-Roman myths; although many of these myths are basic
summaries in Latin, some of them are either analyzed as allegories or
compared to Christian thought.
