Anonymous surveys regarding unwanted sexual experiences (USE) prior to age 18 were completed by 342 subjects in 3 clinic settings. While feelings of victimization were most common, self-blame and naivete were also reported. In the general clinics, 40% of females and 16% of males reported USE; in the sexual abuse clinic, 91% of patients indicated their experience was unwanted. (Author/DB)
