According to a new study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association Pediatrics, one in ten young people have committed an act of sexual violence. 

Nine percent of the 1,000 people surveyed said they had either coerced or forced someone into kissing, touching or other sexual acts and two percent raped their victims. Researchers also say these sexual aggressors tended to have more exposure to violent x-rated material.
