While it's generally called "unwanted sexual contact," child sexual abuse is an adult using a child to meet his or her sexual needs.Some children are manipulated or coerced into thinking that the sex was wanted. It's still sexual abuse, because kids aren't mentally able to give consent.
Some survivors will blame themselves and say, "But I went along with it. I didn't fight back. I can't accept that I was being sexually abused." No, honey. It's still sexual abuse.
"I was a childhood survivor of sexual abuse. I didn't know much about sex and I didn't understand what was going on."
A derogatory term for a "promiscuous" woman. Promiscuous varies itself, whether you have a few one-night stands, sex outside of a serious and loving relationship.
What people DON'T realize is that a lot of "sluts" are survivors of sexual abuse. People with promiscuous behavior shouldn't be put down. It just makes things worse. You have to understand where they're coming from.
Client: I was a slut, because my step-dad taught me that all what I was good for was sex. I had sex to get love and to numb the pain of what I was going through.
Therapist: It's not your fault. You were just re-enacting what you were taught.
