Intimate fondling by a favourite uncle. Violent rape by a gang of men. Enjoyable sex with an older partner during adolescence. Repeated forced sex and other perversions with family members. It is therefore not possible to generalise about the damaging effect that child sexual abuse can have on the later lives of its victims. Common sense tells us that for some victims there is probably no lasting harm, but for others the consequences may be devastating.
