I don't wanna stir up the hornets nest, but in the book, Neil finds a porno mag. under his moms bed and it is of guys and he masturbates to it in the bathtub.

to me, that points towards homosexual, but later on in New York, his acting out probably had very little to do with his sexuality regardless.


The reason I never commented on this post before is because both the Book and Movie Triggered the HELL out of me.

How old was he when that happened Logan? I've only been through the early part of the movie (maybe first 15 minutes) and could not go on any longer with it. But I was a bit disturbed and releaved to see a kid at that age masturbating to what he was seeing. "Disturbed" because its so sad a kid at that age is that sexualized. "Releaved" because I did it at the same age too and always thought I was alone on that aspect of my life.

***** triggers *****

Rob,

I don't have my copy of the book to hand, but in the film Neil is eight when he masturbates at the window while he watches his mother giving her boyfriend oral sex on Neil's swing-set in the back yard. Neil has his first ejaculation and can hardly wait to go show Coach.

All that aside, my friend, you are so NOT alone on this business of masturbating at a very early age. You hit it right on the head when you point to the problem of a kid being sexualized when he is too young to handle it. Imagine, for example, setting a bowl of chocolates out in front of a 6-year-old, and then telling him "have fun" as you walk out the door and leave him alone.

In the mind of a child there just isn't any appreciation of what sex is and means. Things like masturbation are just ways of having fun.

On seeing Mysterious Skin, I wouldn't suggest it until you are in a pretty safe and secure place about your own issues, and even then I think it would be best not to watch it alone. The first time I saw it I was alone downstairs late at night and I was utterly blown away. I had no idea what was coming, and after a point I guess I figured I needed to see it through to the end. When Andy (FormerTexan) and I were talking about it one day he referred to it as "Trigger City", and man, was he ever right!

Much love,
Larry
