Monster On Match

Season 8, Episode 28,   Dec 08, 2023, 06:00 AM

Online dating is more massively popular than ever today, and the list of sites that you can join up in an attempt to find that special person who may be lacking from your life seems to constantly grow - Plenty Of Fish, Tinder, Grindr, Bumble to name just a few, and of course, Match.Com

The drawback with these sites is, is that you never know who you could meet on there. And sometimes, as you'll hear with this account - you may find out too late that you have matched with the wrong person.

The very wrong person.

The episode contains details and descriptions of crimes and events, involving  descriptions of a sexual nature, that some listeners may find disturbing and or distressing, so discretion is advised whilst listening.

Help after rape and sexual assault
Sexual Abuse Referral Centres - Find a SARC

Sexual violence is a crime, no matter who commits it or where it happens.  Don’t be afraid to get help.

SARCs are specialist medical and forensic services for anyone who has been raped or sexually assaulted.  They aim to be one-stop service, providing the following under one roof: medical care and forensic examination following assault/rape and, in some locations, sexual health services. Medical Services are free of charge and provided to women, men, young people and children.

Rape and sexual assault

Our services are confidential, free and available to anyone who's been raped or sexually assaulted, now or in the past. We can help, regardless of whether you have told the police or anyone else about the attack.  Our volunteers can visit you at home (if you want us to, and if doing so will not put you at further risk) or somewhere else if you prefer. If you don't want to see anyone face-to-face, you can also talk to us on the 'phone, either at one of our local offices or at the national Victim Supportline.

Rape and sexual abuse can happen to anyone regardless of their age, gender, race, religion, culture or social status.  Living with the consequences of rape and sexual abuse can be devastating. We believe that all survivors are entitled to receive the best possible response to their needs whether or not they choose to report.
