Cases of sport-related child sexual abuse have received increasing news coverage in recent years. This book documents and evaluates this important issue through a critical investigation of the research and theory on sexual violence and child sex offending that has emerged over the past thirty years. Based on life-history interviews with male and female 'survivors' of child sexual abuse in sport, this text offers a deeper appreciation for the experiences of those who are sexually victimized within sports and school-sport settings. Drawing on a wide range of sources, it also provides a new theoretical framework through which child sexual abuse in sport may be explored. Offering a critique spanning psychology, sociology and criminology, this book challenges existing theories of sex offending while advocating an alternative epistemology to help better understand and address this social problem. Presenting an original sociological approach to this field of study, Sexual Abuse in Youth Sport is important reading for any researcher, policy-maker or practitioner working in youth sport, physical education, sports coaching, sport policy, child protection or social work.
This is a sexual relationships book, not a sex manual. There will be no diagrams or tips about technique. What you will find are thoughts, reflections, stories and decidedly personal opinions about what makes for a good sexual relationship. My goal is for this book to be your friendly confidante-an older sister, best friend, mother, or aunt-who loves and supports you, wanting only the best for you as you set out to become the fabulous woman you are meant to be. In each chapter various women, ranging in age from their 20's to 70's, share their coming-of-age stories in the hope that their life experience might be of use to you. All of us in these pages hold up the truth of our lives to serve as lampposts as we shine our light to illuminate your own, unique path. This is our gift to you. (From the introduction of Loving Sex).
