I am looking for statistics on perpetrators of child sexual abuse. How many in the US? Gender? Race? Relationship to victim? I need actual figures. Any help?

What exactly are you looking for NYP? I have some excellent reference books here by my desk.

What type of research are you looking for?

I need specifically statistics on the percentage of people in the US who are child sexual abuse offenders. Also what they look for in a victim. What relationship if any they have to the victim. What race and gender are offenders? Percentages are the best for me or a ratio.

I have that info, but I have it in storage.

Can I get back to you tomorrow with it?

May I ask why you are needing this?

I can tell you from memory that most offenders are men. Although there does not seem to be a preference in the races.

Sadly, the most horrifying fact is the fact that as must as 65% to 78% of abuse goes unreported because it is WITHIN a family.

I once wrote a paper in a psych class that took me forever to write- I learned in the process of this paper the difficulty in writing was experience:

Most offenders are past or present vicitims (yes, even children can molest,

If I remember right (early 90's) 1-8 boys are will be a victim before the age of 18, and 1-6 girls a victim before 16. Something like that.

Not all offenders are male, although most-

Usually the offender is someone that the child knows - ie, dad, mom, sister, brother, uncle, etc:

Commonly used methods of control:

If you tell anyone, I will hurt you or other loved ones (Fear)I won't love you anymore, I will buy this or that if you don't tell

Offenders will look for the child you seems lost in the world, child whom is left alone alot, hangs at video arcade, park always alone. They try to first persuade them that they can be friends, therefore winning the trust of child, that way when they move in on sexual advances the child thinks that this normal or what someone that loves you does,

I don't remember is there was a specific racial profiling in this subject, slightly remember ranges higher for white then rest and USA, this I believe is because in the Western world more statistics are known, in the other parts of the world this subject is just as taboo as here, but there seems to be a belief that these things just don't happen(ie: Middle East- men never seem to do anything wrong, there are quote-quote "NO GAY People", no AIDS, and or this is just normal for the men to have a young child (ie marriage or engagement).

Alcohol seemed to be a high risk factor, mother or others in family abuse victims in their past and turn a blind eye or don't know how to cope, if it is one in the family being abused you can bet others are too, but haven't said anything due to the threats.

Alot of victims become two minds:
Day person, night person- this is a coping skill. During the day normal child play, etc, night person when the act begins. This is to block out the feelings during the day only the night person has to deal with the abuse. Do you know what I mean?

I believe there is so much more that statistics that you are looking for will not be actual. Are you doing a paper that you need actual figures?

If you are make sure that you look at the latest statistics of known case, but also conclude that we will never know the numbers, reasons, etc: especially if the victim or offender will not give the information.

Good Luck

Summary
This was a vivid and horrific programme in which the victims of sexual abuse by women told disturbing stories of emotional and physical damage:

•Rape and attempted murder of a 12 year old boy by a 19 year old girl
•Rape and abuse of a 12 year old boy over a two year period by a 28 year old mother of four
•Rape and abuse of boys by their mother
•Rape and abuse of girls by their mother
•Women taking a lead role in pornographic violence and abuse
•Children abused by nuns
•Children abused at playgroup
•Boy abused by lesbians

It was acknowledged that the scale and nature of these attacks had been severely underestimated and there were examples of women using excessive force with implements such as chair legs and cutlery.
A surprising 86% of survivors of sexual abuse were not believed when they said the abuser was a woman.
Many myths were exposed, such as the one that women only sexually abused when coerced by men - they in fact played the lead part. Also the myth that women are incapable of cruelty - what was shown was beyond belief.
But despite the seriousness of these offences, women generally escaped custodial sentences.

Statistics
The programme claimed that:
Women commit 25% of all child sexual abuse
250,000 children in UK have been sexually abused by women.
People find it difficult to believe
The issue strikes at the core of what women perceive themselves to be:
The whole view of women is of nurturers, carers, protectors - people who do anything to look after children.

The crime seems so unnatural it offends against all instincts, so society is reluctant to even associate women with sexual abuse
It's easier to think that it's men - men the enemy, somehow - but it can't be women - it's one thing women can't do
Disbelief the biggest trauma
The biggest trauma for some victims is disbelief. A survey of 127 survivors by the children's charity Kidscape showed 86% were not believed at first when they named a woman as their abuser.

The fact that we are not expecting women in our society to do this - not expecting that women our society do this actually has profound effects on the victims, often making the experience go on much longer than it would have done in other cases, but also making them feel more stigmatised, more different, more betrayed, more powerless.

Yes, this so true, who would want to believe such a horror to another person- especially by a female, but like I said it is not uncommon. It is such an embarrassment and whatever else goes through your mind as a victim that so much is untold and will not be known.

The ramifications of this abuse is unbelieveable- Looking for love in all the wrong places, drug/alcohol abuse/promiscuity, death, suicide, divorce,more abuse mental/physical.
