The high incidence of intimate violence in the online sperm donor community indicates that repeat offenders operate via sperm donor websites and Facebook Groups. This is an important fact to remember - if you have been sexually assaulted or raped by a man using sperm donor websites or social networking sites, you may not have been his first victim, or indeed, his last.
If you are undecided about reporting what has happened to you to the police, you can still have forensic evidence collected (time is important, ideally within 72 hours of the assault) whilst you make your mind up and the results can be stored. The forensic medical examination can take place at your nearest Sexual Assault Referral Centre (SARC), details of which can be obtained via contacting the police or NHS 111 non-emergency service.
However, even if the rape(s) or sexual assault(s) happened months or years ago, it is still possible to report the crimes to the police. This is what is known as historic sexual offences. Other women may have raised similar complaints about the same sperm donor to the police, or they may do so in the future.
