Factors of early trauma in the development of sexual anomalies in men



According to the activities of the Investigative Committee of the Russian Federation, in 2013 reports have been published on investigations of sexual offenses (Article 131 and 132 of the Criminal Code) at 10,228 cases. [12] In 2002, 8117 cases were investigated on these articles. [3] During the decade, the number of such offenses increased by more than 20 percent. Increasing the number of sexual offenses, their frequency and risk of relapse necessitated studying the problems of people with sexual disorders. But, in spite of numerous studies, currently not all subjects in this sphere have received the same attention. The problem of sexual assault has been relatively recently considered with the use of modern achievements of psychiatry and sexuality. In this regard, the influence of factors such as early trauma is currently still poorly understood. Our paper is devoted to the study of early trauma factors and their role in the development of sexual anomalies in men. The article contains a review of contemporary Russian and foreign literature on this topic. We also carried out an analytical and theoretical study of cases of subjects who have committed crimes of a sexual nature. This review helped to assess the role of factors of early trauma and showed how these factors can influence the development of various sexual abnormalities. In addition, we revealed the main biologically conditioned factors of early trauma and traced their influence on the development of sexual paraphilias.
