SEXUAL VOICENCE PREVENTION 2
Male rape is a growing problem in the UK and in the United States. Male rapes are
considered by social standards as taboo or unrealistic. Our society as a blended culture may
believe that male rape is a wanted advance because men have the physiological ability to
fight off their predecessors. The medical community often turns victims who seek
counseling and other medical services away. This essay will educate the reader about male
rape, its effects on male masculinity and psychological wellness, and health and wellness
approaches to male rapes. The essay will invite the reader to explore further research in this
growing trend of violent behavior. Present research may provide key evidence-based
resources that may become paramount in saving male rape victims on a global scale.
SEXUAL VOICENCE PREVENTION 3
Male rape is the only crime that most victims will not report to the authorities for fear
of rejection and shame (Daniels, 2011). The global impact of rape has caused much turmoil
among adults who are in the media spotlight on a daily basis. The population of males in
the Afro-Hispanic community are at risk for rapes due to environmental and media
influences. The social influences of rape maybe a product of child molestation or the
ideology to control weaker individuals. Male rapes in the United States may present higher
rapes statistics than female rapes (Abdullah-Khan, 2008).
The impact of male rape may affect the victim’s hypermasculine expectations that
American society places on men, especially in African-American and Latino communities
(Daniels, 2011). The act of rape can cause the victim to question his masculinity, especially
if he is married with children. Male rape victims suffer the same aftermath of trauma and
humiliation as women, but they are more reluctant to admit that they have been assaulted
and to seek help (Collins, 2014). Society tends to believe that male rape is a fictional notion
that only happens to homosexual men. Male rape is rape! There are no other opinions that
matter when a male victim is assaulted and left to pick up their emotions like pieces of a
Healthcare professionals must offer the same medical services to male victims as to
female rape victims (AllAfrica.com, 2012). Medical services are only offered to female
victims, but male victims are turned away and teased (AllAfrica.com, 2012). The action
taken by trusted healthcare professionals is a disgrace to the medical profession! In the
African nations, many male victims have reported incidents of rape. Consequently, the
SEXUAL VOICENCE PREVENTION 4
victims are turned away and labeled as homosexuals. Events such as rape can cause a man
to contemplate suicide based on the perception of society, especially those that are in the
fields of medicine and ministry.
This essay will inform the reader about the emotional and physical impact of rape.
The information used in the essay will provide a foundation for further research in this area.
It is paramount that community advocates raise awareness about male rapes. Activism may
cause more service providers to address male rapes with collaborative outreach services for
this particular demographic.
In African, 30 cases of rape mostly capture refugees who have escaped from conflict
zones were reported to the local authorities. Most rape victims will not speak about being
raped for fear of being branded by society as homosexuals. Some victims in Islamic
countries may even face criminal charges for being raped. Rape in this instance is used as a
weapon of war in many combat zones and prison cells (AllAfrica.com, 2011). Older
lieutenants also raped male prisoners as teenagers as a way to make the younger male
submit to authority. Some of the males survived the rape incidents, while other died from
internal injuries and infection (Boffard, 2012) Research has pointed out that male rapes
were used in wartime as a weapon to instill fear into the enemy. In the Congo and other
areas of Africa, male rape caused many males to hide this dark secret for fear of segregation
from the group (AllAfrica.com, 2011).
Male victims need counseling and follow-up medical care to forgive the assailant and
to progress in the healing process. Rape can occur anywhere and to anyone that is
vulnerable. Our communities must be aware of the times that rape can occur to both male
SEXUAL VOICENCE PREVENTION 5
and female. Healthcare professionals must remain competent regarding male rape statistics
and quality care protocols. According to the studies conducted in Ireland, male rapes can
occur globally especially with younger males because of the lack of defenses (Braiden,
1995). This article was based on societal perceptions of the Darwinism theory, survival of
Child molestation in males can occur much more frequently than in adult males. Most
juveniles are assaulted by staff members working in the correctional facility. Statistics show
that 20% of the juvenile population is victimized by staff that protect and counsel them. Out
of 8,500 boys and girls, only 1,720 surveyed reported being sexual assaulted (Sapien,
2013). It is believed by social standards that males who have been sexually assaulted may
sexually assault other young boys as well.
After gathering all of the research data, I have concluded that rape can cause a
dramatic retard reaction in the physiology of brain synapses. Younger males must be
educated about rape prevention and counseling. Forgiveness therapy is the best approach
when counseling male rape victims. Educating the community regarding signs of rape and
the community resources available to rape victims may greatly reduce the emotional and
physiological burdens that most male rapes victims carry.
Education Implementation and Review
The education portion of this essay will prove resources are needed for male rape
victims. Male rapes are considered fictional fragmentations of the mind of the male that is
reporting the crime. Society feels that a man should have the ability to fight off his
assailant, but this may not be true for many reasons (Abdullah-Khan, 2008). The education
SEXUAL VOICENCE PREVENTION 6
plan will give the reader some insight on statistical data, resource management,
demographic specific pedagogy, and relational group therapy.
A portion of my essay was extracted from my previous education plan during week
five assignment. The portion that was extracted is relevant to the objectives for this
assignment regarding educational planning and evaluation in quality service for male rape
victims. Quality service will establish the complexity and behavior modification within the
The chart below represents the structure of the education program along with the
goals and objectives for each session. According to the abuse, rape, and domestic violence
aid, and resource collection website, victims of rape tend to go through the cycle of
emotions before healing can begin (AARDVARC, 2011).
Shock This is the initial reaction to rape
Denial This is the stage in which the patient does
a question and answer session. (e.g. why
Blaming The patients will begin to blame self and
other people for the sexual assault.
Pain The patient will begin to grieve, causing
physical and emotional pain
Anger The patient will begin to become feel
anger toward the perpetrator and with their
inner self for the incident.
Acceptance The patient will begin to accept the
incident and move toward recovery
SEXUAL VOICENCE PREVENTION 7
This chart illustrates the need for qualified services to aid the patient through his or her
wellness journey (AARDVARC, 2011).
Counseling and other services, such as HIV testing and supportive medical services,
should be offered to the patient immediately (Collins, 2014). During the healing process,
patients should address the spiritual ramifications of rape as an opportunity to find
forgiveness in their hearts. When a person is raped, the victim often feels empty, shamed,
and degraded (Bowman, 2013). Counseling services for male rape victims may be awkward
for some counselors who give a generic approach to every patient. Male patients may
question their masculinity after a rape (Daniels, 2011). The male patients may be reluctant
to seek health care services because of self-judgment.
Counselors must comfort male rape victims as men and not as female patients.
Counseling services for rape male rape victims should never be considered a one-size fits
all. Healthcare workers must address the spirit, the emotions, and the physical rehabilitation
within the teaching plan. The plan will aid the client within each session. In group sessions,
some clients may require more individualized counseling. Therefore, these patients should
be referred to a counseling professional immediately.
The chart below represents an example of a teaching plan for the upcoming sessions.
The education plan will provide comfort and psychological care to rape victims while
establishing standard quality care protocols that can be used within the healthcare industry.
The sessions, as described in my previous essay, will inform the targeted communities
about the dangers of male rapes and the pragmatic medical and psychiatric issues related to
the aftermath of the event. The program introduces a slow integration of forgiveness
therapy, therapeutic trust, and destroying fear.

Education is the key to the prevention of rapes in males and females. Rapes among
males are much more damaging than in females because of the impact in the victim’s
masculinity complex (Daniels, 2011). The plan will establish a group network of male rape
victims to comfort one another when distorted thoughts began to surface in the minds of the
For this education presentation, I will use the social ecological model to raise
awareness regarding male assaults. The social ecological model approaches health
promotion, the interplay between environmental resources and the health habits and
environments that promote or hinder well-being (Pender, 2011). Some crimes are
committed due to learned behavior as a child. In the Congo, young boys were recruited as
soldiers to fight in the rebel wars. The boys shoot and kill other citizens, rape the women
and other boys, and commit other crimes assigned by the lieutenant. Most of the boys were
raped at a young age as a submission to the lieutenant (Murdock, 2011).
This model will prove that educating the community, we may lower the chances of
male and female rapes, formulate a justice systems that will investigate male rapes as true
crimes, and establish resource management for medical and counseling services. The model
will also serve as a platform in establishing solid research to aid more male rape victims.

Conducting the research was the most insightful process that I have ever experienced.
Male rape has affected many men across the globe with physical and emotional trauma.
Society’s views on this subject are mistaken and must be corrected with education.
Preventive health education is the key to health and wellness. The subject of male rape may
be taboo in many countries including some parts of the United States. Health care
professionals must raise awareness within the community in effort to confront male
assailants and comfort closeted victims.
Male rape victims will not come forward because of the allegations of being a
homosexual (Murdock, 2011). Therefore, healthcare professionals must counsel these
patients as individuals. Group therapy in most cases may not be an acceptable approach
because of local laws associated with sodomy. The approach to relieving male suffering is
to ensure that safety and conflict has been addressed before group therapy can bring (Corey,
2014). For example, in the United States, male rapes occur more often in the armed forces
than in the public (UPI, 2012). Many rape victims that are in the armed forces may face
retaliation for coming forward. The assailant may be a high-ranking official, which may
cause the victim’s testimony to be ignored.
The objective of the essay is to educate and inspire my readers to see the light of
forgiveness and achieve a sense of strong will that the rapist cannot break. Rape victims
SEXUAL VOICENCE PREVENTION 12
may feel as if people are pointing the finger at them, but it is just a mind-altering experience
that leads to self-judgment and emotional destruction. I recommend public service
announcements geared toward male rape victims. Healthcare professionals must establish
social services programs that will aid in the recovery of emotional masculinity
