Trauma Facts: Did You Know?

Fact

Half as many sexual assault and rape cases have been reported since 1993, but there are still over 300,000 American survivors of assault each year.

Fact

Consent isn’t just a “yes” or “no.” It should be given enthusiastically throughout sexual activity and can be withdrawn at any time.

Fact

Past sexual trauma can be emotionally and physically damaging. For vagina-owners, it can cause vaginismus — a condition that makes penetration very painful.

Fact

Trans and gender-diverse people are at higher risk of experiencing sexual trauma than cis gender people.

Fact

Callisto is a non-profit that creates technology to help detect and report sexual predators on college campuses.

Fact

If someone tells you they’ve experienced sexual trauma, believe them, do not judge them, listen to them, and offer support if you can.

Trauma (noun)

/IPA/

A deeply disturbing or distressing event that can cause lasting psychological effects, which is known as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A traumatic experience related to sex and relationships — whether it’s caused by an abusive relationship, a bad date, a sexual assault, or something else — can make it hard for the survivor to enjoy future sex and intimacy. While there’s no one way to heal from trauma — everyone heals at their own pace, in their own way —  there are many resources and support groups to help.
