Keele student shares his experience of sexual violence

TW: Sexual Violence

I am a man but still I was sexually assaulted. I blamed myself because I was bigger, stronger. It took a doctor to hold my hand and simply say
“It wasn’t your fault.”
for me to believe it.
But I was emotionally manipulated.
I was pushed and pushed until I gave in having said “no” for hours.
The final thing that did it was my attacker saying
“F**k me or sleep on the street.”
No one should have to hear that. And to anyone who has been through any sort of sexual assault.
Don’t worry. You will sleep soundly again. It may take time and help but you will. x
