As a society, we often associate domestic violence with women. However, it's essential to recognize that men can also be victims of abuse. In fact, statistics show that 1 in 9 men experience severe physical violence from an intimate partner in their lifetime. The abuse that men face can take many forms, including physical, emotional, and sexual abuse. Unfortunately, men may feel ashamed or embarrassed to come forward and seek help, leading to underreporting of abuse in this demographic. It's important to note that abuse doesn't discriminate based on gender, race, or sexual orientation. Men from all walks of life can find themselves in abusive relationships. The following statistics help shed light on the prevalence of abuse against men:

  • About 1 in 7 men ages 18 and older have experienced severe physical violence by an intimate partner.

  • Almost half (48.8 percent) of all men have dealt with some sort of psychological aggression by an intimate partner. This number is equal to women at 48.4 percent.

  • Nearly 1 in 18 men have been stalked by an intimate partner to the point they were scared for their life or safety or the lives or safety of loved ones.

  • Of rapes on men that were committed by someone known to the survivor, about 29 percent were by an intimate partner.

  • Men are the victims in about 6 percent of cases of murder-suicide in which the offender is an intimate partner.

  • An estimated 10.4 percent or approximately 11.7 million men in the U.S. have reported having an intimate partner get or attempt to get pregnant when the male partner didn’t agree to it.

  • The average cost for men seeking emergency care following an attack by an intimate partner is $387.

  • Nearly 8 percent of males who’ve reported domestic violence have been shot at, stabbed or hit with a weapon.

  • An estimated 5 percent of male homicide victims annually are killed by an intimate partner.

  • Nearly 56% of men who were victims of contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner first experienced these or other forms of violence by that partner before age 25.

  • Among male victims of completed or attempted rape, about 71% first experienced such victimization prior to age 25.

  • Nearly 41% of male victims first experienced stalking before age 25.
