I too at first thought that what happened to me wasn't so bad when compared to the stories of others. But, while reading some posts I came across one from a man who said he was groomed. That sounded a lot like what happened to me, so I sent him a pm, and since then have kept in touch. I have learned from this wise person, and many others on here that it was not my fault. It was something that was done to me. It may have felt good, and even resulted in orgasm, but that's just the plumbing working as it is supposed to. You and I were children and not responsible for what happened. Even if you went back, and it happened again and again, as it did with me, it was not your fault. Our perps crossed that line of love and sex and used us, and stole our innocence. We may not have been violently raped, but the trauma, the aftermath is equally painful. I thank God that I have a wife and friends who I have recently been able to tell of my abuse. I thank God that this web site is here for without it, I think I might have gone completely cracker dogs. After hiding and denying what happened to me for over 35 years, I can attest to the fact its not easy getting on the path to recovery, but once on it I hope I never get lost again. Please don't disqualify yourself based on how you were abused and whether or not you willingly participated in it. You were used, and abused. Welcome to the club.
