“Nicholas Groth, a clinical psychologist and author
of Men Who Rape: The Psychology of the Offender,
says all sexual assault is an act of aggression, regardless of the gender or age of the victim or the assailant. Neither sexual
desire nor sexual deprivation is the primary motivating force behind sexual assault. It is not about sexual gratification,
but rather a sexual aggressor using somebody else as a means of expressing their own power and control. “

Male rape overview: "Male survivors of sexual assault, regardless of their sexual identity or orientation, face deep-rooted
and complex perceptions and prejudices. The confusion of violence with sex blames the victim; when the perpetrator is another
man, since the survivor “wanted it,” the conclusion is that the male survivor must be gay."
October of 1988 the first professional Conference on Male Sexual Victimization was held in Minneapolis. This ground-breaking
conference, organized by a few dedicated mental health providers, brought together professionals who wanted to better understand
and treat adult male survivors of childhood sexual abuse. At that time, nearly a decade ago, only limited information could
be offered to those who participated. But those present had great enthusiasm and the clear recognition that the conference
was a necessary and valuable resource, where professionals could share practical information and ask questions. And it was
a safe place for some to acknowledge their own sexual victimization.”
