Research says that 1 in 3 females and 1 in 7 ir 8 boys are sexually abused by the time they are 18. Unfortunately, the media does not give the problem of male victimization the same attention as females.
There is a website devoted to male survivors and their loved ones at http://www.malesurvivor.org.
More info on helping male survivors can be found there. Also, there is a discussion forum (bulletin board) for discussing issues of victimization and recovery.
