Not sure of any specific websites because I am not sure of what kind of sexual abuse you are referring to.

Is it pedophilia?

Is it a form of incest?

Is it rape?

Sexual abuse comes in all kinds of ways and I would believe that each one may have a different kind/type of origin.

This might sound kind of weird, but if I were you, I would first start in posing this question as it related to non-humans first and then progress from there.

Seems to be a whole, vast array in terms of true 'animal behavior" along those lines.

On one hand, you've got the Bonobo, sex-crazed Monkeys. Interesting thing you might want to check out.

On the other hand are real, life indications of rape among other species - ducks for example. I am sure that there are many, many others.

Please, please - not in anyway whatsoever to distract or in any way minimize the actual rape and incest and shit which occurs among the humans AT ALL!!!!

Just that, I think, if might be important to explore ALL aspects of this topic - all the way around.

Personally, my feeling about sexual abuse amongst humans (to a certain degree)....is that (and this is only a theory) is that 'they' the ones who abuse are somehow and in someway trying to recapture THEIR YOUTH & INNOCENCE in the same manner in which it was lost to them to begin with and they therefore repeat the offense in the hopes of gaining back what THEY lost - to some degree. This is by no means a one-size-fits-all kinf of thing. Just perhaps, a little sliver of it.

Thing is - you just can't 'recapture' that which was done to you by doing it to someone else. You/They THINK that it just...might.....DO - JUST THAT - -but, really, truth be told, in the real end - it just doesn't fricking-fracking fly like that! You know?

That's my thinking anyways - for what it might be (if anything?) worth.

I would like to hear what your thoughts are on this issue first? Why and how did you come to this topic?

I think the word abuse suggests an intent to hurt and harm. Humans being the one species that we know, for sure has the capacity to rationalize between beneficial and hurtful consequences, have continued to use and misuse those and that which is socially prescribed as of lesser value and importance, not for survival,continuation of the species, or self preservation. Most abuse is almost always,IMO, self serving. This, to me, is the cause of all abuse.

The source?

Poor upbringing, perpetrators were abused themselves, chemical imbalances & so on.

In layman's terms - a head full of bad wirin!

Firstly, I'd like to clarify what you mean by the 'the origins of sexual abuse'. Are you trying to determine what the circumstances and the mentality is of people who abuse children in the first place, or are you looking of examples of the the types of abuse that happen?

Child sexual abuse can include

- sexual assault – a term defining offenses in which an adult touches a minor for the purpose of sexual gratification; for example, rape (including sodomy), and sexual penetration with an object. Most U.S. states include, in their definitions of sexual assault, any penetrative contact of a minor’s body, however slight, if the contact is performed for the purpose of sexual gratification.
- sexual molestation – a term defining offenses in which an adult engages in non-penetrative activity with a minor for the purpose of sexual gratification; for example, exposing a minor to pornography or to the sexual acts of others.
- sexual exploitation – a term defining offenses in which an adult victimizes a minor for advancement, sexual gratification, or profit; for example, prostituting a child,and creating or trafficking in child pornography
- sexual grooming - defines the social conduct of a potential child sex offender who seeks to make a minor more accepting of their advances, for example in an online chat room.

The effects of child sexual abuse include depression,post-traumatic stress disorder,anxiety, propensity to re-victimization in adulthood, and physical injury to the child, among other problems

The causes of such cruelty are numerous. What springs to mind is that the perpetrator had suffered abuse as a child, another is the sex offender may come from a dysfunctional family where proper boubdaries were never enforced, and alcoholism and/or drug addiction was the main focus. There are also perpertrators who enjoy the sense of control and power they feel while abusing a helpless child.

Some are just psychopaths who get their sick and twisted thrill out of torturing an innocent.
