I was listening to this song earlier, and I got to thinking. It may not have been intended, but it kinda captures how an abused person feels about their abuser. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JPOtSknsdXs

If there are any adult groups for males, it's going to be rare in my experience. Google might get you the best chance to find out if SC has any in your area? I would think a good therapist at the VA might know if men at the VA want to meet about SA f

Force is definitely not required for consent to be absent. I'm sorry for what happened; a lot of perpetrators take advantage of a person's hesitation or uncertainty about the situation. Indeed, having your boundaries suddenly steamrolled is pretty

I lived in residential type of life change counseling and coaching back when I was 17. It was a very difficult situation and I was scapegoated by 1 guy, a year older. I was put through a day of hell, and given undeserved punishment, before they final

physics, I was sexually abused as a child. But a huge percentage of my pain and confusion come from my dad who was never sexually abusive. Physically, verbally and etc yes, but never sexually.. Still, i find it safe to share my stories and issues,

Welcome physicsfriend. We're very aware of situations of fear and uncertainty. And the time I've been here, I've read of a woman who drugged a man, had her way and did harm. I will let him tell his story, he'll know whom I mean, if he's around? The

Well, hello, MS community. I hope it's okay for me to be here because, at the moment, I can't be 100% sure that I am a victim of sexual assault (although I have good reason to think I was). I don't think this is the right place to go into all the de

Your post resonates quite a bit with me. When we look back, it is from a perspective of safety, and we can judge ourselves harshly and question any right we have to the integrity that was taken from us. I had one episode of sexual abuse as an adult.
