English abstract
SEXUAL VIOLENCE AMONG ADOLESCENTS A literature study about adolescents who harm themselves through sex and measures to prevent that form of sexual violence Abstract Adolescents can harm themselves through sex by taking sexual risks such as sexual exposure on the internet, having unprotected sex and put themselves in situations where the potential for sexual violence is great. This type of sexual risk-behavior can create negative consequences and result in physical and mental sexual abuse. The aim of this study is to raise knowledge about youth who harm themselves through sex and measures to prevent that form of sexual violence. To accomplice this we made a general literature study on national and international research. Our study shows that despite the negative consequences, adolescent’s sexual risk-taking continues. The behavior can be a way for the youth to get attention and approval. It can also be a way to reduce anxiety and deal with emotions; just as with other self-harm behavior. Ways of preventing sexual risk taking and self-harm should be of universal measures aimed at adolescents in general. The preventive measures should involve the youth in discussions about identity, sexuality, boundaries and self-esteem and result in strategies to handle emotions and increase help-seeking by making the help more available. The public and professionals knowledge about sexual violence, sexual behavior and self-harm should increase. Also by increasing youths knowledge future sexual risk-taking and sexual violence can be prevented.
