More male sex assault victims seek help
A Tasmanian sexual assault support group says there has been a big increase in the number of male victims seeking help.
The Hobart-based Sexual Assault Support Service, or SASS, says 20% of its clients are men.
The service's Karen Jones says SASS employed two male counsellors recently because of the growing number of men seeking help.
She says some come in about recent assaults, but most cases go much further back.
"No one knows, we haven't done the studies for it, but what we think is happening is that people are coming forward more," Ms Jones said.
"People are reading it in the paper, seeing it in the media, lots of publicity around clergy abuse, lots of teacher assaults," she said.
