Hi guys.
I wanted to share something that has been part of my shame. Sometimes when i masturbate i think about eating my sperm of fantasize about sucking my self. I know that or fantasies may be hinting to unresolved issues so i was wondering what this may be hinting to. I think it means that I am struggling with accepting my own manhood and when I want to look at porn of other guys doing it ( I am straight) that I want to be connected with other men who are struggling as well. I told a few people and the desires is less and less but it is still there. Any thoughts...

A few months ago, I had a similar question. I went to my "go to" guy on sexuality issues, a colleague who is a survivor himself and a Ph.D. in Human Sexuality.

Here is his answer (pardon the spelling/grammar problems):
Have we all forgotten that many males taste their own semen and th at this behavior is frequently observed within our society without pathology of a history of abuse. Certainly the erotic pleasures acquired from i njesting one's own semen may be an acquired, and perhaps more frequently obs erved among adolescent males who are bisexual and/or gay in their orientatio n. In itself the behavior represents nothing more than an acceptance o f one's own body, and masculinity.

Concern can be raised if the behavior is associated with a history of sexual abused that involved degrading acts of humiliation associa tioned with ejaculation and the injesting of sperm. Other concerns rela te to the dangers associated with developing a fettish for the taste of sper m and acts associated with ejaculation {i.e. cum baths, facials, etc). There is obviously increased risks associated with frequent unprotecte d exposure to the sperm of multiple partners.

As with all fettishes an individual needs to be advised of the dangers associated with their activities; however, clinicians must also be aware of their own bias and tendency to see pathology rather than pleasure in behavio rs that they may find personally distasteful. I would ask the you th to describe in great detail both his practices and fanctacies. Once information is gathered it is a good practice to support what is pleasureab le and safe, while providing the knowledge and practice skills need to preve nt disease.

Ingesting cum is an act that replicates the vagina. During my acting out days, I had this fascination for behaving like a girl and acting like a vagina. I always wanted to feel what it felt like to have a vagina.
The result was mixed with excitement and disgust. And it ended there.

Sperm to me represents bein a man. Sometimes I need
the sperm image in my head inorder for me to even feel like a man. For some reason after my abuser finished with me she would call me a girl and I began to think that I would never be a man. Even now I dont see myself as a man. I know Im male Im not confused like that its just I always think that Im still soft and not manly. Does that make sense?

Please tell me why..

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I do value them. I thought I was alone for so long and i carried that shame with me for so long. I told two friends-something I thought I would never do-it repulsed me and i thought it would repulse them as well or they would abuse me with it. they did neither. They gave me respect and grace and that I couldn't give myself.

It made me realize that I wanted healing so badly but I didn't want to let anyone in either. I was afraid of trusting them. healing only comes when we allow others in.

I never wanted to be a vagina. i wanted to be a man- i wanted to feel manly. I wanted to accept my masculinity. I lived in a family where it was not celebrated but rather in a quiet way, shamed upon.

I think I was trying to love myself and to feel normal.
I know now that i don't have to try- I do love myself-dark , scary parts and all.

I hope this helps. :p
I love this place.
