Manchester: Zahl vergewaltigter Männer im letzten Jahr verdoppelt

So geht man außerhalb Deutschlands mit dem Thema "Vergewaltigung von Männern" um:

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) have said that reports of male rape have more than doubled in the city in the last 12 months.

Since April 2014, men have been victims of 84 incidents of rape or attempted rape, compared to 35 in the previous 12 months.

Sexual assaults on men have also risen, from 69 to 93 in the same periods.

GMP and Survivors Manchester, a group that helps men who have been raped or sexually abused, have launched a poster campaign aimed at men who have been the victims of rape, urging them to come forward and break the silence.

Police believe that many incidents go unreported by victims.

Detective Inspector Damian Simpson from GMP's Serious Sexual Offences Unit said: "Rape is a difficult subject to talk about and we appreciate that coming forward is never easy."

"We know that male rape is heavily under-reported and want to reach out to men and let them know that help is available."
