Heidi Olsen explores the growing trend of juvenile sex offenses, role of pornography on teens

America is facing an epidemic of child-on-child sexual assault.

Heidi Olson, a sexual assault nurse examiner, gave a talk at our 2018 Coalition to End Sexual Exploitation Global Summit titled “The Rise of Child Sexual Assault and Juvenile Sex Offenders: A Look at the Role of Pornography”.

In her talk, she outlines the rising problem of child-on-child sexual assault and the factors fueling this issue. At her hospital in Kansas City, the biggest age range of sexual assault perpetrators was 11 to 15 year-olds in both 2016 and 2017. In essentially every case, pornography played a significant factor in training children.

At NCOSE, we’re working to bring this issue out of the shadows. We want to bring awareness to this crisis, so we can prevent further abuse and get victims and perpetrators the healing they need.

To help equip parents, educators, school administrators, and policymakers to address the challenges posed by these harmful sexual behaviors, the National Center on Sexual Exploitation is hosting a National Symposium on October 9-10, 2018, “Out of the Shadows: Confronting the Rise of Child-on-Child Harmful Sexual Behavior.”

This symposium is being held in collaboration with the National Catholic School of Social Service at The Catholic University of America and Protect Young Minds.
