I was analy raped a week after my 21st birthday by someone I considered a friend and a friend of his. it happened in a hotel room after I accepted a lift but never got home. I remember pleading with them and asking them to stop. there were two of them and only one of me and in the end I could not fight them anymore. i remember my so called friend saying ‘this is what adults do, get used to it.’
this changed my life in so many ways as I was young and just starting out on my adult life and this happened. i spent 4 years fighting this in court and they both were found guilty of indecent assault and given 3 years house arrest. The added trauma came when the legal system let me down.
