Hello MaleSurvivor team,

First off, I wanted to thank you for this amazing resource! It means so much to me to have a place where I can articulate my struggles, find support, and also lend my support to others. This place is a key lifeline for me, particularly three years ago when I was first starting my recovery journey and did not have any other venue to meet survivors or experts in CSA trauma recovery.

Through encounters with fellow survivors of child pornography and similar forms of abuse, such as cyber sexual exploitation, I have found that my unique struggles and thoughts about this kind of CSA has been echoed by others, however we do not have very many locations or resource material which address victims of child pornography and cyber exploitation.

As child pornography and cyber exploitation is an "atypical" form of sexual abuse, many of us survivors may feel further isolated and ignored when we cannot connect with others who have had similar experiences or when we feel that "our" form of abuse is not addressed in resource literature.

Moreover, would we be able to have a forum topic on Male Survivor for Survivors of Child Pornography, Cyber Exploitation, and related forms of Abuse?

I also feel that since the proliferation of sexual exploitation and child pornography via the internet (as was the abuse I experienced), the demand for such specific resources and peer support network will only increase as recent and current victims begin to seek out help in the near future.

Thank you so much!

We will address this at the next WOC meeting.
Money talks, but all it tells me is goodbye.

If I could meet myself as a boy...
