Is a sexual abuse/rape a means of control and a power "trip" for the perp? or is it also sexual gratification?

This is one of the questions I tussle with.

Duncan - I can't answer for your Perp but usually the Perp is trying to get back what (his power) that was taken from him by his Perp. The Perp has his power/control so he takes yours!! In that way the underlying motives are power and control even though it has sexual overtones. He is acting out what he can not talk about to anyone. "If you don't talk it out, you'll act it out!!" is a saying I often use!! He acts out his feelings of powerlessness through a sexual event!! I hope this helps clarify the sexual VS. power and control dynamics!

Duncan, its a power thing, but its troublesome that two of them found each other, so it must have been planned.

Perps thrive on terror, and they are the biggest cowards, because when they are caught, they are just like frightened animals.

I keep my butt cheeks firmly closed, and anybody wants to do anything without extreme violence needs to be aware, that he will be castrated, so quick, he wont be able to fight back.

I learned that as a kid,

Hi Duncan, Welcome to the site. I can tell you that after being here two years, I am starting to feel a change in myself, to what I don't know yet.

About Rape and how it can effect you. Male Rape

I was raped in 1968, it took me until 1992 to read a book on rape, I learned a lot of what I thought I knew was wrong. Here is the book I read, Recovery by Helen Benedict If you can find a copy of it, it is a good book to start answering your questions.
I like you and everyone who has been raped, thought it was about sex. The other things I thought was some how I must of done something to cause it to happen. I also thought that it must of been a gay guy who did it. It is very likely that both of those thoughts were wrong. I will never know for sure, as the guy was a stranger and I never saw him again. This is part of the mess that that runs around in my head. I have found that this place is a good place for me to put the thoughts down, it seems to help, yes it is still a messes in side me, but it is less than it was.

Take care,
Clifford

As ScottyTodd said, & to state in a different way...
Abuse IS about power. Weather the abuse takes the form of sex, beatings, starving, or belittling comments.


Though while I agree with you in general ScottyTodd, I have to also bring caution to a generalization you have made.
I greatly doubt you meant to imply this, but lets point out that.....
A Sexually Abused child does Not usually become an abuser himself. A very small % of SA children ever grow up to abuse other children. Ken Singer or Lloydy are like to have the stats on that.

And Not talking about your abuse doesn't mean your going to act out or be abusive.

Blacken - You are absolutely right that the greater majority of abuse victims inevitably do not go on to offend!! Please don't ever think I say victims will always go on to perp sex offenses. There is a great range between stats of victims becoming abusers; however, I go with about 40% of victims become abusers themselves. Stats on identified sex offenders (those caught for sexually offending)being childhood sexual victims is very high [maybe 70%]. The last stat I read on juveniles in delinquint placements, at least 50% had experienced some sort of childhood abuse (sexual, physical, emotional, etc.). 60% plus of sexual victims do not ever offend!!

Hi Clifford , I was raped by two complete strangers back in 1999. I went home shortly after it happened and tried to figure out what had happened, but could not reason it with myself so I buried it and tried to control the nightmares.

I never went mountain biking again, in fact i put a hacksaw to my bike and cut it up - i regret doing that now. I keep thinking was it the clothes I had on? etc... but reading that article has started to make things clearer.

Duncan,

I can't speak for your perps but I can say that the old proverbs based on numerous psychological evaluations recorded by the APA over the years have stated that rape is prodominantly a control thing. The perps record a feeling of being almost godlike while committing their crimes.

Theories of Mic Hunter, Laura Davis, and even myself state that these feelings of control that rapists desire are derived to compensate for the lack of control they have over themselves and their own lives. Taking control of someone else is a temporary killing of that pain similar to drug abuse or alcoholism just much worse because it involves victims.

I don't know these people or you personally, but i would probably bet that those who hurt you are probably in more pain than you. Now, I am not by any means empathizing with those criminals. They deserve to suffer and pay for what they've done to you. However, many assailants that are similar to those you've described are going down an endless spiral of despair and pain and probably will continue to do so until they die. You on the other hand seem to be going the opposite direction and I firmly believe that you will beat this. Stay strong, you are in my prayers. Much love to you my friend.

Jason

If they are in such pain and despair they should seek help. They have probably runied countless mens prob boys lives as well.

There are days when i feel like giving up but i have not yet. I also get paranoid thinking its going to happen again.

Unfortunately, some of them do not have the courage to seek help as you do. You are not like them but you have to deal with much pain like them. The main difference is, you are doing something about it and things will get better for you.

I'm sorry you have to feel so much pain and fear. I would think that you are having issues with anger after what you have told me. However, expressing anger (when you are ready), is a remedy for that. It is long, difficult, and painstaking but your efforts will be gratifying I assure you. It is important to make sure you vent in a positive way. There are many books out there that can help you with that (The Courage to Heal by Laura Davis is one of my favorites). There are many books that illustrate coping methods for rape victims that, perhaps, would be more suitable for you. Also, when you find a good therapist, they can help you with anger issues. I know a few tricks myself on how to vent safely and effectively. If you would like to hear some of them you can always PM me.

In the mean time, it is important to do whatever it is to ensure your own safety and to avoid any questionable situations. You are very vulnerable now. It is also a good idea to go on living your life and to continue being the person you are. Sometimes its hard to find the median between the two. but someone with your resilience, I'm sure, will figure it out. The more you do that, the more you will relinquish the power your assailants have over you mentally and emotionally.

Good luck, you are not alone.

Much love,
Jason

Duncan,

I have always felt that my rape was a power trip for my rapist, because of the violence of it. He had a gun to my head and filled my ears with all sorts of threats the entire time I was being raped.

I was convinced, also, that he must be gay, and that gays must enjoy raping others. How naive of me!! But the reality of it is that I hated gays for decades. I was horrified of them. No matter how passive they behaved, I knew they would rape me or anyone else in a heartbeat. This is the warped way my brain catagorized things.

Later, when my brother "came out of the closet", and I began to meet his friends, and these guys became some of my friends. I remembered the violence of my rape, and I knew that it was not about being gay or straight. It was totally about having control and power over another human. What better way to display power than to rape a man?

The cowards know that the vast majority of us are not going to admit or report being raped. Thankfully this stigma is being diminished in society, but "back in the day" I sure as hell wasn't going to tell anyone. My parents still have no idea.

My rapist cried like a baby a few hours later and apologized profusely. I'm sure he had issues, as he told me he didn't know what came over him, but that he had done this many times, even took photos.

The truth is, I don't give a damn what issues he had. He gave me a lifetime of issues I didn't deserve. You, nor anyone here, deserves the issues we must work through, probably for the rest of our lives.

*****WARNING TRIGGER - GRAPHIC SEXUAL CONTENT****

Rich

Thank you for sharing with me what happened to you.I am sorry to hear that.

I kept thinking it was a sexual thing I know better now. I went around convincing myself that it was about sex and that i must of been the guys "type" acutally there was two of them.

I hated myself and still do because they made me feel less of a man. I had to do what they asked i could not say "no!!" to them. My rapists didn't seem to care at all. I am sure they loved the suffering they were incurring on me.

They penetrated me about three times during the rape and cum inside me i also had to give them blow jobs. they seemed to get excited when i ejaculated when they penetrated me and told me that i am enjoying myself they said all sorts of dirty things whilst they fucked me and the fucking seemed to get harder and harder each time.

I hate what they did to me. I hate that I have no control over my body when i have nightmares i cum. I hate been naked as well.

******** WARNING: TRIGGERS ********

Duncan,

This is probably NOT the correct advice I should be giving, nor the advice a therapist would give you.

That stated... I was never modest growing up. I took showers with all the guys in the showers in school. Living in Florida, we all run around shirtless and in bathing suits and shorts. I would change into and out of a bathsuit in front of my friends. None of us had a problem with this.

After my rape, I didn't want to be seen naked, OR dressed by anyone. I wanted to just disappear. However, I quickly realized that the best way for ME to hide what had happened to me, was to FORCE myself to continue taking showers, and continue dressing and undressing with my friends. If overnight I became very modest, they would know something had happened.

I am not modest today, but it is because I forced myself not to be. I still do not want anyone to touch me though, unless they give me warning or I can at least see them coming at me with a hug.

My perp told me the same thing as far as enjoying it. After raping me, he gave me a blowjob and I came. He told me, "See? You must have liked it or you wouldn't have cum." BULLSHIT!! I was 16 yrs old! After decades, I finally realized this! My body was reacting physically, not mentally. At 16, I would cum after any kind of stimulation! Perps know this, and use this to keep us quiet, and to mess with our heads.

Your wet dreams are your way of your brian trying to process these events that happened to you. DO NOT allow yourself to beat yourself up over a physical bodily function, Duncan. DO NOT!!

I hope that you are able to reclaim your life, Duncan. It is possible! This site, and the guys here have taught me that. Because of them, I began much needed therapy 2 yrs ago, and my outlook on life has improved much. The same thing will happen for you, Duncan.

Rich,

** TRIGGER WARNING **


I never shower after i have played a game of rugby i try to get back to the chaging rooms before them and if I wanted to shower I would wait until everyone had gone.

I been naked, i was forced to strip naked for these two men.I have tried to cry but I cannot I want to so badly but all I get is surges of anger and hate.

My attackers did not want a sound out of me the pain was awful they would say dirty things to me and penetrate me harder and harder. I just wanted to die.

For seven years(it will be eight years in march 2007) i buried it deep down and tried my best to look "normal" on the outside. I hate myself. I should be hating the bastards who did this.

I keep on saying to myself "why me?" i guess that is a bit selfish because if it was not me it would have been someone else. All I want is to be myself again and end this torment.

I hate it when guys look at me because I think they want something - stupid isn't it? and i hate the wet dreams.

In one game of rugby i was buried under a pile of blokes and i cum in my shorts. I was so upset and angry i just walked off, but was called back. I didn't tell anyone what the problem was.

Why do I get this way? I dont fancy men. Have they turned me gay in someway? I dont like been touched at all by men even if its a friendly touch on the shoulders. I try to stay out the group rugby hugs as i get angry.

what is happening to me?

I wont be posting here for a while. I just cannot handle my state of mind at the moment.It just seems all too much.

I still cannot get to grips with any of it, despite all that i have been told. I look in the mirror and i hate what i see. If I had a gun I would shoot that person in the mirror.

I was 28 when i was raped so that makes me an adult and i still could not defend myself, yeah there was two of them but i could of at least given one of them a good punch or two.

I say it now and I will say it again, they should have killed me it would have been a whole lot better than living a life of hell.

i know some of you will strongly disagree with me and thats fine.
I am still wary of men ( what do i sound like?) I hate been touched even if its a friendly touch on the shoulder. I go out of my way to cause arguments with friends and then blame them for it. ( i am as bad as the two who raped me).

blame the other person its all their fault. I cannot stop the voice in my head that tells me to kill myself. I have not had a holiday in eight years(march next year).

I said to myself today. I will goto the USA next year and do backpacking in one of the national parks then fear comes back into my mind and i see "visions" of it happening all over again.

I want to do everything I used to do. I am not one for holidays in hotels. I want to be me again. This year I was going to goto the "big bend national park" in Texas but once again fear had taken me over.

I am probably over reacting its just that I dont want to be "weak" again.

Interesting thread...

First, regarding the victim to victimizer issue. Howard is correct, the overwhelming majority of abused boys do NOT go on to abuse others. As far as research on abusers with sexual abuse victimization histories, the studies over the past 20 years vary considerably in percentages. One of the better ones used polygraph exams and found that the claim of childhood abuse dropped significantly when confirmed by polygraph.

It is about power over another to a large extent. It is also connected with sexual arousal/attraction to the victim. So, if a child molester tells me that he had no sexual attraction to the child, it is pretty unlikely that he did not. If it were purely about power over the child and nothing sexual towards him/her, then why not just use the power the adult has by doing something non-sexual like punishment?

I don't want to cloud the issue about "what was he attracted to in me" here. Survivors have enough self-blame that is totally unwarranted. The arousal/attraction/sexual interest the perpetrator has is HIS problem, not the child (or the adult's in Duncan's case.)

It is generally about running a power trip with an adult. The male oriented rapist is exercising power to humiliate and overwhelm with force, just as the female-oriented rapist wants to control the victim and often may have problems keeping and erection or ejaculating.

It is a complex problem and I don't want to muddy the waters here but it is important that you work on moving from blaming yourself for not protecting yourself or somehow being responsible for the interest/assault the other person put on you. This takes time and work. If you continue to buy the belief that it was somehow your fault, it keeps the perpetrator from taking full responsibility for what s/he did.

Ken

duncan,28 or 8 does it really change anything ? just cause you were older does that somehow make it not as bad? it took me a while being here to see that me dying wasnt gonna change anything ,it wouldnt even stop the pain that radiates out from abuse ,maybe it would stop my pain but what about people who know me and care about me? the last thing i wanna do is cause pain for somebody else cause of what happened to me.it took even longer to believe that somebody did care about me ,but somebody does care about you ,even if it has to be just me. adam

Firstly let us forget the figures Ken, you know as well as I that they mean nothing because of the small percentage of reporting by victims.

Duncan, I know from experience that being raped as a man can be just as hurting as to a kid.
Kids have more resilience than adults, they tend to look at the future with more optimism.

This is pretty 'raw' with you as it happened just a few years ago, and it takes lots of time and encouragement from yourself to get over the hurdles you face.

You have to realise that the trust issues are derived from what happened, hence the lack of trust with men.

I have more trust now, but I am still wary of men in everyday life, an instinct that is molded into my mind, an unconscious reaction.

Babe steps are needed and finding ways to divert your mind is a good way to take yourself away from it.

You need to be aware, that abuse is not written in your eyes nor anywhere on you, a common factor of survivors who see the world looking at them with an evil intent.

Just take small steps and reward yourself each little thing you do to make things better,

Duncan, you have to tell yourself that you are not bad, it was not yr fault, and guess what, I blame myself, and so do the others here bar none.

I tend to think that sometimes you can come here and it has an adverse effect on your moving forward, but it is you who has to do it.

Listen to what the other guys have said, take it in, and be strong no matter what.
Dont let things go out of control, think better,

giving up is not acceptable ,if i cant then you cant . i confuse hating what happened to me with hating myself two different things . why shouldnt we just give up ?i mean hey we got good reasons right? why shouldnt we say i just dont matter ?how can anybody ever care about us if we cant even care about ourselves?

Thanks guys. but its the truth i am wating my time trying to get help. its not going to help i will probably be patronised by the counsellor so what is the point of it all?

I should have kept quite about it and even when i was triggered i should have maintained control.

so if i was to give up does it matter? afterall i am the one giving up. i can face living in the "dark" again it will take time to re adjust and bury my emotions again at least my mind will not be constantly ripped apart like it is now.

And as for the hate i cant stop it. i cannot stop hating myself i dont love myself. if i look in the mirror i wonder who is that.

I also hate that i could not defend myself and i had to do things against my will. i hate all of it. i am so angry as well.

Duncan, triggers are not of your control, they are emotional triggers.
When I was a child, I had nowhere like this to turn to, and nobody to listen.

Yr mind can control anything, you only have to see what the kids went through to guess that nothing is impossibe, but it is tough.

I guess it may be tougher being a man, and seemingly made less of a man by meeting those beasts, but you are better than them.

You are digging yourself out of the pit of despair, just as I did as a kid, and it was prob easier because I never had to go to work and be with men etc.

There never is a scale of abuse, if it hurts, it hurts much the same, but maybe with added hurt.
We have to believe that we are much stronger than we think, and to do that, we have to stop blaming ourselves.

Let the pressure off by doing something like walking or cycling in the country with the birds and animals and stuff with no distraction.

Thats what I do, get out into the world of animals and just be with them and no noise,

Duncan,

I hope our conversation tonight helped some. Remember:

You are not to blame -- it was not your fault. You did not ask for what was forced upon you.

You are now in control. It is within your power to decide how you deal with things. You can choose what will come of what happened to you.

You aren't alone -- You know where to find us.

I love this site!!!!!!! Thank you all for caring so much and taking the time to respond to Duncan in his obvious hour of need. It would have been so good for me to have been able to turn to a similar organization 25 years ago when I first started dealing with my abuse. Didn't happen but I hope Duncan and others facing similar situations can listen to the wisdom, care, and encouragement each of you have so openly and freely offered. I also hope Duncan and thousands more like him are fortunate enough to find this site in 2007, they certainly deserve it.

Duncan, my thoughts and prayers are with you. Hang on, you are going to make it.


Barney
