My CSA occurred in early puberty, age 13. Puberty actually started at about 11-1/2 but I had no clue what was happening to my body then. Its hard to know how much of my teenaged (and then adult) obsession with sex was a reaction to my being abused, and how much was just normal. I have six sons aged 18-30, and I have observed in them a much more casual, restrained attitude about it than I remember in myself.

I can take a very detached view about teen sex issues, so its not been triggering for me. But now and again I see a boy about 13 and wonder "Is he being abused?"

I will remember you
Will you remember me?
Don't let your life pass you by
Weep not for the memories
