Sexual coercion: Young men’s experiences as victims and...
A recent review of the literature on non-consensual sex reveals that a number of boys and young men (up to 10 per cent of the populations studied) experienced forced sexual relations in a variety of contexts.
In South Africa, for example, menÂ’s experiences of early sexual abuse ranged from unwanted sexual touch, to being made to touch someone sexually, to having penetrative sex. School-going adolescent males in India reported high rates of sexual abuse including being touched without permission, private parts being brushed or being forced to have sex. Among young sexually experienced males in Peru, many had experienced sexual coercion, and a significant minority reported coercive sexual initiation. Men in Nicaragua also reported experiencing early sexual abuse, including penetrative sex.
