We are aware that many men who are survivors come here and read the posts. I hope that you read the papers in our Survivors section, and even in the Professional's section.

Now I encourage you to join the discussion board. It costs nothing, and it gives you the chance to post and get replies.

I sure know how afraid you could be. I just peeked in for months before I joined and began posting.

Joining the discussion board and using it as a part of your healing is a really good thing to do for yourself. You will never regret it.

Why not click on the Register link now.


If we do not live what we believe, then we will begin to believe what we live.

you're absolutely right, there are so many people who just come along and have a read - we get on average 1,307 visitors a day - and how many are actually using the forums ?

It's a "good news - bad news" figure though, it means that MS is getting noticed, but it's sad that there are so many men out there who in desperation must type "sexual abuse" into Google and hope something turns up.

Well, we turn up. A site where men and those that help and love us come to further our healing. Sometimes logging on here is the first thing an abused man ever does.
It doesn't matter if you're new to the whole business of healing or been at it for years, this is the best site there is.

The skill and proffessionalism of our Board is second to none, the site is well Moderated and safe, and the guys using the site provide so much help, support and friendship. What more could a site give ?

So, if you're just passing through stop and think a while. Is what we're talikng about here something you recognise ?
Not everyone thinks that they've been abused, I certainly just thought that what happened when I was a boy was "sex that I took part in" - and I thought that for over thirty years.
It wasn't - it was ABUSE !

If you didn't want that sex as a boy, and it's giving you trouble now - then log on.

We understand.


Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined. As you simplify your life, the laws of the universe will be simpler.

Bob and Dave are absolutely 100% right. Now you know you are not alone ever again and that this organization exists. There is no need to live in fear or pain all by yourself.

Take them up on the offer. I did and I have never looked back or doubted that it was not the right thing to do!!!
