Abused boys


18 December 2005

Boys are no more in control when they are abused by a woman, which remains even more of an unspoken taboo than sexual abuse by a male. Boys tell us that they fear no one will believe them, or will assume they were willing participants. The most common reported female perpetrators of sexual abuse were mothers, and in most instances the boy was living alone with his mother.
