GCASAFV is focusing on male survivors of sexual assault during National Men's Health Month. We take this time to encourage others to learn more and engage in conversation.

“Out of 1,000 rapes, 994 perpetrators walk free.” Sexual assault is a crime where perpetrator arrest is rare. What is rarer than this is the conversation surrounding male survivors of sexual assault.

Perpetrators of sexual violence are less likely to go to jail than perpetrators of other crimes. According to the National Crime Victimization Survey from 2010-2014, only 344 out of 1,000 is reported to the police. Why does this happen? Those who do not report do so for reasons such as fear of retaliation, belief that law enforcement will not believe them, and/or a belief that what happened to them is not important enough to report.  

While it is important that these statistics change for the better, the decision to report belongs entirely to the survivor. However, should survivors choose to report, they can find answers to many frequently asked questions here.
