Childhood sexual abuse (CSA), is a significant public health problem that impacts the lives of millions of people every year. Individuals who have experienced CSA have long term negative sexual health and reproductive consequences including risky sexual behavior (RSB), sexual dysfunction, and sexual re-victimization. In this grounded theory study, a theoretical framework that depicts the process by which CSA influences the sexuality of women and men survivors was constructed. Data were drawn from interview transcripts of 95 women and men who experienced CSA. Using constant comparison analysis, the researchers determined that the central phenomenon of the data was the core process of Determining My Sexual Being. These findings suggest that the problem shared by the participants in regard to their sexuality was the need to understand the nature and cause of the abuse, as well as the effects the abuse had on their sexuality. The core process involves 4 sub-processes: Grappling With, Figuring Out, Tackling, and Laying Claim To what it (CSA) was, why it happened, and how it affects adult sexuality. This theoretical framework can provide health care professionals who work with CSA survivors with a different way to conceptualize survivors' responses to CSA.
