“When I was just 11 years old my mom had a boyfriend. At first when my sister and I met him we thought he was a great boyfriend for our mom then he had a sudden interest in me and kept touching me inappropriately then raped me repeatedly till I became 15 years old. He went to jail but not for life only till I’m 28 and now I’m 20 years old.”*

“I fortunately, have only had one experience where a blind date for the afternoon took me into a barn while the others were looking around the farm. He was big, attractive, strong but not a bit interested in me. Once in the barn he starting kissing and fondling me. I wasn’t much into it since I didn’t know him but he was determined. Eventually, he had me down on the straw and was trying to pull off my clothes. I resisted as hard as I could and he backed off. It was so unpleasant to know that someone could overwhelm me, have no feelings for me and only think of himself.”
