How sexual want & Youth is connected to Rape , Shocking !

Recently doing research on causes of rape when found one article written by Ms. Michele Ybarra (Ph.D) on psychologytoday.com, the article explains how rape is initiated during young age around us. so some major points I have highlighted from the report.

one in ten youth is perpetrators. ( here it means involved in sexual crime)

9%  of youth age of 14 and 21  make someone do something sexual when they knew that the other person did not want to. (This is 9% of *all* youth – not just those who are having sex)

 

Youth have tried to or made someone have sex with them was the most common age of initiation is 16 years old.

Girls are perpetrators: One in three youth who admitted to trying or making someone have sex with them was female.

Media Matters, Youth with the violent x-rated material are more likely to admit to being sexually violent. Trends also suggest intense exposures to violent media (people shooting, fighting, killing) and sexual media (people kissing, having sex) may be related to sexual violence.
