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.

From a Second-hand Reader

This came from a man who calls himself a second-hand reader.

I've been reading this blog since it began because a friend forwards it to me. I was afraid to go to the blog itself. That sounds stupid maybe, but I once trusted a man who was supposed to help people like me. We were men who had been molested when we were kids. He listened to me and seemed sincere. He asked me questions about the abuse—every detail.

One day he touched me and tried to kiss me.

I've been scared ever since to trust anyone who talks about helping us. But my girlfriend knows and she's the one who forwards the blogs.

They have done me some good. I'm still not ready to talk to another man, but your blog is helping.
