Myth #2 - Most sexual abuse of boys is perpetrated by homosexual males. Myth #3 - If a boy experiences sexual arousal or orgasm from abuse, this means he was a willing participant or enjoyed it. Myth #4 - Boys are less traumatized by the abuse experience than girls.
  18. 18. Myth #5 - Boys abused by males are or will become homosexual. Myth #6 - The "Vampire Syndrome” that is, boys who are sexually abused, like the victims of Count Dracula, go on to "bite" or sexually abuse others. Myth #7 - If the perpetrator is female, the boy or adolescent should consider himself fortunate to have been initiated into heterosexual activity. For any male who has been sexually abused, becoming free of these myths is an essential part of the recovery process. Source www.MaleSurvivor.org
