sexual trauma and abuse

sexual trauma and abuse

Sexual abuse is any sort of non-consensual sexual contact. The effects of sexual trauma are often felt long after the actual abuse. One common symptom of sexual abuse is repeating traumatic experiences or creating trauma bonds with others. Sexual abuse can happen to men or women of any age. Sexual abuse can be rape or abuse by a partner and also can include derogatory name calling, refusal to use contraception, intentionally causing unwanted physical pain or humiliation during sex, and deliberately passing on sexual diseases or infections. You deserve an apology for the pain your sexual trauma has caused you. Understanding how sexual betrayal by seduction, terror, or exploitation of power currently affects your life can an important first step to healing.
