The predators and misconceptions includes the types of people who commit the act of male rape and explains what kinds of fallacies the populus believes in about male rape. The victims are men of any race, age, ethnicity, and sexuality. The effects and counseling techniques include depression, anxiety, and other negative mental disorders and counselors use a multitude of techniques to treat and improve the lives of survivors. The research of this paper was conducted from the exploration of three major book sources, three scholastic journals, one academic journal, and one tertiary source. These reliable sources were gathered over time in various ways to help formulate the conclusion of this research to conduct a strong paper.
