    (Doing this for the bump) I wonder if I'm in a minority, since I was never sexually abused by anyone in my life. Closest was an old guy who tried to approach me in a men's room on the Atlantic City Boardwalk when I was 13, but I got the Hell out of there.

    Does fingering my ass when I've made it clear that I don't like ass play count as sexual abuse? icon_razz.gif

    I'm disturbed by this. None of you guys should have been abused as a kid by someone in authority over you. I have no mercy for such people. These monsters should be punished accordingly and they will because the arc of the moral universe is long, but it bends towards justice. I'm proud of all of you guys that you have overcome and lived on from such betrayal. You are strong people. You guys rock!

    That's awful and sad. I know you're well into adulthood, but If you know the doctor/teacher, report it. Chances are, you aren't the only victim.

    Hope you guys get the support you need.

    Sorry to hear that these events have happened to you guys...it's always heartbreaking to hear when young men, or worse boys, get taken advantage of by people that hold authoritative positions [like Doctors; Teachers; etc.].

    Trust is a fundamental element of all relationships [family, friendship, workplace, etc.]; so, when that trust is betrayed it can take quite a long time to repair and heal.

    I remember watching an episode on Oprah discussing male survivors that didn't want to tell anyone; and how they kept those memories to themselves for decades. I didn't realize how rampant it was. Supposedly 1 in 6 males deal with this - which goes into millions of men that have no where to share what is on their mind.

    Well, I remember that the show had links for guys to check out to discuss with other kindred spirit. A place where they can share their thoughts privately, and in confidence. I googled and found the page Resources for Male Survivors.

    There are 3 links on that page: 1in6; MaleSurvivor; MenThriving

    For what it's worth, I've not visisted those links; so, I can't speak from a firsthand about what it's like there. But I figure it's something to consider, if your questions are not answered here.
