According to the Michigan Rules of Evidence and the Federal Rules of Evidence, when someone claims to be a victim of a CSC, the question becomes whether or not their sexual history should come into admissibility.

JUAN CARLOS RUIZ RIVAS, "REALIDAD SEXUAL EN EL PERÚ" pura percepción (agrego)

"Los resultados de la negación conservadora, por cierto, saltan a la vista: más del 75 % de violaciones son a menores de edad, y 42 % de personas mayores de 18 años cree que el castigo físico puede ser bueno si se realiza sin lesionar al niño o adolescente. ¿Es en serio? Sí, muy serio, por cierto."https://www.expreso.com.pe/opinion/juan-carlos-ruiz-rivas/realidad-sexual-peruana/ "Necesitamos definir también cómo alineamos la difusión de estos temas en los distintos ámbitos donde nos desenvolvemos los peruanos. ¿Cómo intervenimos en el seno familiar? ¿Cómo contrastamos la información que recibimos en el colegio, con la que reciben en casa o el barrio? ¿Quiénes son las personas autorizadas para hablarles de sexo a nuestros hijos?
