“It’s Not Your Fault”: What A Man With Pedophilia Wants You To Know
Today’s episode of Audacious is not appropriate for children or for those who are particularly sensitive to the topic of sexual assault.
Right now, 1 in 4 girls and 1 in 13 boys are sexually abused before the age of 18. And more than 90% of those victims know their perpetrator in some way.
