I hurt for a long time because of childhood sexual abuse. Now I want to provide a safe place for hurting men to connect with other survivors of sexual abuse. Talk to us. You don't have to use your real name to share your experiences or ask questions.

Hi there. You have always been a very courageous man and I am so pleased with your blog.
I do have one request: Since my book, Broken Boys/Mending Men, has remained in print since 1990, I wish you had included it in your list of references.
In brotherhood,
Steve Grubman-Black

Thanks for your comment, Steve. Cec asked me to add your book to the list of recommended resources. He says he loves your book and is happy that it's still in print.

Hello, Cec
So glad to see your newest blog up and running, regarding a most important but little discussed topic. We met at a recent writer's conference and discussed our common interests and experiences, and I came away a better man for it. I would be happy to share my story, at your request.
