    1. Sexual Coercion

    2. 83% of rape victims are under 25 years old • Statutory rape – if victim is under the age of sexual consent (e.g. 17)

    3. Rape trauma syndrome • Acute phase • Lasts hours to weeks • Post Traumatic Stress Disorder • Expressive or controlled emotions

    4. Rape Trauma Syndrome (Cont.) • Long-term reorganization • Years • Fear of retaliation • Change addresses • PTSD • Nightmares, depression, anxiety • Sexual problems • Lack of sexual desire

    5. Rape Drugs • Rohypnol • “Date-rape” drug • Sedative - lasts several hours • Varying degrees of amnesia

    6. Reducing risk of date rape • Meet in a public place • E.g. for lunch • Be independent • No drinking • Be clear in your expectations • Be consistent in the messages you are sending

    7. Rape avoidance • Women who scream, kick and run were more likely to avoid being raped

    8. After a rape • Best to report even an attempt • Do not • Take a shower (eliminates evidence) • Practice your story to make it believable • Try to figure out what you did wrong

    9. Helping a friend recover from a rape • Listen to her • Give words of comfort • Offer shelter at your home • Let her discuss this as often as she wants • Do not insist the victim call a rape hotline, or see a counselor

    10. Sexual abuse survivors • Sexual difficulties • Drug and alcohol abuse • Obesity

    11. Incest • Brother-sister is most common • Sexual contact with daughter = incest • Sexual contact with daughter’s 10 year old friend = pedophilia

    12. Pedophilia • Sex with children

    13. Pedophiles • Often moralistic or religious • Lonely • Poorly informed about sexuality • Have problems with alcoholism • Sexually victimized during his own childhood

    14. “Recovered” memories of childhood • Legitimacy of recovered memories has been supported by several research studies • Sometimes, but not always accurate • False “memories” can be created in the research lab • ”Repressed memories” may be inadvertently planted by overzealous interviewers.

    15. Sexual harassment • Two types • Quid pro quo • Something for something • Hostile or offensive work environment
