“This vear as in every vear. tens of thousands of bovs will be sexually abused.

They will be damaged physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. Every aspect of their lives will be affected. When they become adults, they will be plagued with sexual dysfunction, troubled relationships, a poor sense of self-worth and intimacy difficulties. Many will become drug addicts. Some will destroy themselves. Most of them will suffer the effects of sexual abuse without ever realizing that they were victimized. When they read or hear about sexual abuse they probably will not hear about male victims”
