Over the past few years the problem of teenage sexual abuse has finally come out of the closet and is now being recognized. Much of the information we now know about teenage sexual abuse has changed over the past ten years. In response to some questions I've been asked by concerned parents over the past few weeks I'd like to share some basic information about teenage sexual abuse. What type of person is a sex- ual abuser? Sexual abusers have several things in common. Sex- ual abusers are usually people you know. They know their vic- tims and their victims know them. Most range in ages be- tween 15 to 35. Sexual abusers have few close friends, are usu- ally loners and come from all races, all social and economic classes, all ethnic backgrounds, all religious groups, and work at all jobs. These people look nor- mal, act normal and are not in- sane. Sexual abusers meet their needs at the expense of others, the people they abuse. They may act macho or domineering, may have been abused during child- hood or adolescence and are mostly men. They do not take responsibility for the problems their abuse causes. They are likely to sexually assault again without treatment or psychologi- cal counsellng. Sexual abusers are not the sexually starved people we see in the movies. They usually have a regular sex partner. In some cases a sexual abuser will have many different sexual partners. Sexual abusers look to overpower their victims. They are out to control and hu- miliate their victims instead of looking for another sexual part- ner or sexual pleasure. They blame their victims instead of themselves for their problems. Sem4al abusers will often say the following things when they are finally caught: (I) She asked for it, (2) It's o.k., everybody does it, (3) She loved it, (4) She made me do it, (5) It's no big deal, (6) It didn't hurt her, (7) I don't know what you're talking about, they're lying. What is sexual abuse or sex- ual harassment? Sexual abuse or sexual harassment is any unwanted, forced sexual contact. It can be harassment, exposing or flashing, forcing a person to pose for sexual pictures or mak- ing a person look at pornogra- phy, fondling or unwanted sex- ual touching or rape. This can happen between friends, dates and strangers, with people you know very well or know very little, with people you trust, and between family mother, sister, uncles and cousins. pen anywhere, at at any place. It can boys and girls. In boys, most boys ally abused are boys or by men- homosexual. Sexual i crime carried out who has victim to abuse, planned the abuse detail, deliberately the abuse while intimidation, in order to keep found out by others deliberately lie in up the abuse. He to believe he was the' not the person who ately abused. We know several those who are People do not ask to abused.

It is when a victim makes about sexual abuses not happen. Most ual abuse are not instances of sexual pen in the home by who is known by 20 per cent of rapes, the rapist is 62 per cent of rapes or gang rapes, are under 21.
