In addition to the other responses, SSA may sometimes be manifested only in intense emotional bonding beyond what would be considered 'normal.'

For example, my father bonded with men (rather than his wife) throughout his adulthood, obsessing on one 'friend' at a time, with a devotion that far overshadowed his relationships with any other person in his life. I doubt his 'crushes' were sexual, but there were no limits to his utter and complete devotion to each man he 'chose.'

I believe SSA is very common in American culture, thinly disguised in marriages where the husband devotes the majority of his time to his friend or friends, so much so that it becomes 'the other woman' and damages the relationship with his wife. Of course, these are always the men who deflect attention by proudly expressing anti-homosexual sentiments.
I have taken to the stand-up comedy stage to educate other male survivors and those who try to love them. I blog about my isolated religious upbringing where physical and sexual abuse were commonplace and I serve as a facilitator of a weekly support group for men who have suffered sexual assault.
