Sexually abused boys are also three times more likely to have multiple sexual partners and twice as likely to engage in unprotected sex.
Published online in advance of the Journal of Adolescent Health’s June issue, the UBC study explores links between sexual abuse and risky sexual behavior, focusing on three areas: teen pregnancy, multiple sexual partners and unprotected sexual intercourse.
The researchers analyzed 10 sets of Canadian and U.S. survey data from two decades of published studies. Conducted between 1986 and 2011, the surveys were completed anonymously by more than 40,000 male high school students in B.C. and across the U.S., including states such as Oregon, Vermont, Minnesota and Massachusetts.
"As far as we know, this is the first study to explore the strength of the effects of sexual abuse on boys’ sexual behavior," says lead author Yuko Homma, a recent PhD graduate from the UBC School of Nursing.

The introduction of the Domestic Violence Act on 28 February 2006 was a day of hope for people working with the victims of domestic violence, but those victims still face the prospect of finding themselves homeless when they reach the point where they can take the abuse no longer, instead of the abuser being ordered out of the family home.
According to Agenzija Appogg, the Domestic Violence Act provides for a protection order to prohibit or restrict access by the accused, for a period not exceeding six months or until final judgment, to premises in which the injured person or any other individual specified in the order, lives, works or frequents, even if the accused has a legal interest in those premises.
Normally, the perpetrator is evicted from the home following an application filed by the victim’s lawyer. The court normally accedes to such a request when it considers that the perpetrator is a threat to his/her family and/or that, as a result of his/her actions, his/her family would suffer if they were to be the ones to leave the matrimonial home.

At Barnardo’s, the work we do to help child victims of sexual exploitation takes time, commitment and expertise. There is no quick fix or instant solution.
With increased pressure on public finances, tough choices have to be made about how, why and where money is invested. I strongly believe that we have a duty to help inform the debate and to ensure that resources are directed towards those young people who are most in need in our society.
We know all too well from our work in this area that the emotional, psychological and physical effect of sexual exploitation on young people is hugely damaging – with the after effects often lasting long into adulthood.
