HOHENDORFF, Jean Von; HABIGZANG, Luísa Fernanda  e  KOLLER, Silvia Helena. Sexual violence against boys: epidemiological data, characteristics, and consequences. Psicol. USP [online]. 2012, vol.23, n.2, pp.395-416.  Epub 17-Jul-2012. ISSN 0103-6564.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-65642012005000007.

This theoretical essay provides information about sexual violence against males in Brazil, given the scarcity of national studies on the subject. This lack of theoretical and practical knowledge creates challenges for professional work. Searching the national databases of scientific research revealed only one study, so international publications were employed. This study examines epidemiological data about sexual violence against males in Brazil as well as the characteristics of the victims, authors, and situations of sexual violence. This essay also considers the possible consequences of this type of violence. The found literature often discusses the difficulties boys have in reporting their experiences of sexual abuse, as well as their doubts about their sexual orientation. In conclusion, although sexual violence against males is less frequent, it does occur and thus requires preventative and therapeutic strategies. Furthermore, more national studies on this topic must be made.
