Rape prevention is a touchy topic to discuss especially in a culturally sensitive environment when it comes to sex.


And new statistics show that rape prevention and sexual violence should be discussed more often. Nearly 1 in 5 women, nearly 20 percent, report being raped in their lifetime, says a study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Melinda Coles works for the DC Rape Crisis Center.

According to reports, sexual violence and/or aggression are widespread in the US.

One in 6 women reported being stalked by an intimate partner, receiving unwanted phone calls, text messages and other forms of online and offline contact that caused her to fearing for her life and well-being.

But the problems don't only affect women. 1 in 71 men have reported rape cases.

Rape can have long-lasting and various longer-term health effects.

There are attempts to minimize rape incidents in the US from awareness seminars to counseling centers.

But even as people try to decrease incidents sexual aggression still remains a complicated issue to resolve.
