Regarding stats, here are the stats that I often use:

Through it's website, Weekends of Recovery program, and International conference MaleSurvivor has given hope and support to hundreds of thousands of survivors, their loved ones, and the professionals who work with them.

In the past 12 months (July 1, 2011 to July 1, 2012) our website had over 3.3 million pageviews by over 300,000 visitors from over 200 countries.

The estimated male US population in 2009 was 155,244,097 (http://www.geohive.com/earth/pop_gender.aspx) 1 in 6 of that total (victims of abuse before age 18), there are over 25M survivors in the US (the actual # is 25,874,016). If we make a conservative guesstimate for the # of ASA survivors by raising the number of survivors to 1 in 5 the number is over 30M (31,048,819).

Hope this helps.

Chris

And if you really want to have fun with the stats you can then make the comparison to the rates of diabetes (1 in 10) and heart disease (1 in 8) as of 2010 according the CDC.

"according to the CDC in 2010 1 in 10 American Males were at risk for diabetes* (15,524,409), and 1 in 8 were at risk for heart disease** (19,405,512).

Diabetes - 15M
Heart Disease - 19M

Sexual Abuse - 25-30M"
