Sibling sexual abuse represents the most pressing hidden crisis in America. The Associated Press’s Lindsey Tanner wrote on a recent JAMA study that says 1 in 16 women in the U.S. were forced to have sex in their first sexual encounter. Often these encounters come within one’s family. Sibling sexual abuse serves as a rapidly growing, yet silent epidemic. This epidemic targets all segments of society. It spares no one. Whether you are white, black, Hispanic, Asian, rich or poor, it affects all demographics in staggering proportions. According to Rudd and Herzberger sibling sexual abuse occurs five times more frequently than any other kind of sexual abuse. While our society condemns the heinous acts of abuse carried out by the Jeffrey Epstein’s and Larry Nasser’s, the sexual abuse of children by children remains largely ignored in mainstream public discourse.
