    Abstract

    In an adolescent medicine clinic with more than 1,000 patients during 1982-1984, 11 male adolescents reported a history of sexual molestation by females. This molestation had commonly involved acquaintances and was unlikely to have been accompanied by threats of violence or physical coercion. One-fourth of the victims of both male and female molesters described themselves as sexually dysfunctional, and eight of the victims of male molesters identified themselves as homosexual. Both groups experienced the molestation as highly traumatic.
