Hi, I would like to see a story about the long term effects of rape/sexual abuse on victims when they don't get therapy for it as soon as possible.

I know that both Oprah and Dr. Phil have done shows on Rape and sexual abuse, but I don't think they have done them on the long term effects, especially male victims.

Two web sites that I belong to. and
I think if you contact them They can find members interested in telling their story on TV.

A web page about Male Rape.

Pretty much my life as I have posted so far. Triggers!
I am sorry to say that I am not ready to go on TV. But I know there are a lot of people suffering in silence, and there needs to be more shows to encourage them to seek therapy.
Thank you,

There are days when I feel I am strong enough to "go public" with my survivor experiences on a show such Oprah, then there are other days where I think it would only serve to increase my paranoia/fears.

Oprah is a survivor herself. She is one of our greatest champions. I bet she'd love to have one of us on her show.
