There have been a lot of reported cases of rape and sexual harassment with women and girls being victims. What I don’t know is what men do when they are victims of rape and sexual harassment.
What do men do when women rape them or harass them sexually? ?

psychological support (and referral for mental health care if needed);
treatment and prophylaxis for sexually transmitted infections;
prophylaxis for HIV as appropriate;
information on safe abortion; and forensic examination (if a woman decides to pursue prosecution).
From the legal system, survivors need to have access to competent and
sensitized professionals who will assist them should they decide to prosecute the perpetrator.

quality of care afforded to survivors and may serve to curb sexual violence
by strengthening sanctions against perpetrators
It’s hard to tell since there is none to listen to the men in the first place. I guess they just go quiet about it.
