Reducing the Risk of Experiencing Sexual Victimization
While no person is responsible for the victimization he or she experiences, there are a number of steps individuals can take to reduce the likelihood of experiencing an assault:
- Know your personal limits before entering into an intimate situation. Be clear, consistent, and unwavering in your communication of those limits.
- If you sense that a situation isn’t safe, make an exit as quickly as possible. Don’t be afraid to create a scene or reach to others for assistance.
- Make smart decisions about your use of alcohol or other substances that may impair your ability to make smart decisions.
- Look out for your friends and ask your friends to look out for you.
