A number of sexual offences like rape, indecent exposure and sexual assaults take place and affects thousands of young teens and children. It's a high time that the global community needs to do something to curb the sexual crimes worldwide.
Festival of Globe, Silicon Valley (FOGsv) has come up with the campaign with a mission to empower youth against sex crimes. FOG charity aims at educating and empowering the youth and work towards eradicating sex crimes and spreading the message worldwide via multiple channels, including the FOG Music Fest.
The music fest will have renowned artists like French Montana, Berner, Mally Mall and Anjali World among others utilising the power of their music in the fight against sex crimes. FOG has also partnered with Crowdera, a free crowdfunding platform for the cause. Donors can select from a variety of rewards, including tickets to the Music Fest and opportunities to meet the performing artists.
Here are the 9 heinous reasons why sex crimes are happening and why we need to fight it.
Preen pressure is one of the major reasons that people involve in heinous sex crimes. In the fear of rejection by friends, teens with low self-esteem are exposed to peer pressure. They feel great pressure from the peer group to become sexually active. Therefore, they choose to get involved in sex crimes.
Some people get excited, or can only get sexual pleasure by inflicting pain on their partner. Such people are also likely to cause more physical damage and torture on the victim.
Consumption of drugs and alcohol increases the desire to get the sexual pleasure. It decreases the coyness and impedes good judgment.
Teens are constantly bombarded with the sex scenes in the movies, porn sites, advertisements and sexual messages. Unable to resist their sexual bombardment, they embroil themselves in merciless and ruthless sex offenses.
Lack of sex education is another reason behind the outrageous crimes taking place. The sex education taught in school deals with only the facts about the sex and ignores the issues, which obstructs teens from making responsible decisions.
It's a psychological fact that boys use love to get sex and girls use sex to get love. In a desire to be loved, they choose the path of sex and when they don't get the sexual satisfaction they get involved in gruesome activities like rapes and other barbaric crimes.

Indulging in sexual activities is seen as normal these days, teens have been mistaken that everyone is doing that, so they can also have it. But the fact is that majority of the teens, that is 54% of the high school teens are virgin. The hormonal changes in teens produce intense sexual desires, and when a teen is unable to control these urges he/she becomes part of inhuman sexual acts.
In the USA, only 6 out of a thousand perpetrators of sexual violence ever go to prison. One can only imagine the situation in other countries where the legal system is not as strong. In fact, some of these countries put the blame on the victim. Since there is no real fear of conviction or punishment, many of the sexual offenders keep repeating the crime.
Extreme hurt, hate and aversion caused due to the dominant upbringing by parents, school and association can give birth to heinous crimes. Lack of affection and love can make one aggressive and harsh. These combined emotions lead to terrible and awful crimes like rape.
