We’ve got two brand new stories in the magazines this week – both on the serious topic of sexual abuse. We work with lots of victims of childhood trauma who, as adults, want to speak out about their own experiences to raise awareness. Both victims featured this week have been incredibly brave in waiving their right to anonymity to tell their stories in full. Toni and her daughter Debbie, and Stacey chose to sell their stories to encourage other victims to come forward, breaking the taboo of silence around childhood sexual abuse. Click on the story images below to read them for yourself.
DAD’S SICK SATURDAY NIGHT FUN
After Stacey’s mum and dad split, Stacey, 26, would go to stay with her dad at the weekend. But he started creeping into her room and abusing her, even though she was only four years old. Stacey kept the ordeal a secret as she got older, but the abuse continued into her teens. Then one weekend she finally found the courage to deny him, and her father never called or wrote to her again. In time, Stacey met boyfriend Simon online and started rebuilding her life, but it wasn’t that easy… Stacey’s story is being told in two parts in Love It magazine, so come back next week to find out how it ends.
DUPED! DAUGHTER’S SEX PICS TO MY PAEDO HUBBY
Toni, 37, was disgusted when she found Martin, her husband of 13- years, with naked pictures of her 15-year-old daughter, Debbie. Toni discovered Debbie, now 19, had been duped into sending Martin over 3,000 sexy photos – believing they were going to her ‘boyfriend’. Martin was posing as a younger man. Toni reported his sick sham to police and in 2010 Martin received a three-year community order. Their shocking story is in That’s Life magazine.
