Men, latest breed to fall prey to violent sexual assaults

Wellington, February 1 : The number of men who claim to be the victims of sexual assault is increasing steeply.


According to the police reports, during the past five years the number of male victims of sex assault has jumped from about 480 to 710, Stuff.co.nz reported.

The reports also said that although the number of female victims has also increased by about one-third, the number of male victims have increased by 50 per cent.

Organisations working with male survivors said that while women make up the vast majority of sexual violence victims, many assaults on men still go unreported.

Ken Clearwater, national manager of Male Survivors of Sexual Abuse Trust, said there had been a big change in attitudes toward men as victims of sexual violence, including among police.

Clearwater added that nearly half of the survivors he worked with had suffered abuse at the hands of women.
