I just watched an inspiring Movie called "It's kind of a funny story," about a teenager that takes life too seriously and ends up calling a suicide hotlines which ends up getting him laced in a Psychiatric Hospital and although he is only 16, he is placed in with the adults.
The movie was funny and charming and is rated as a Comedy. But it was more of feel-good type of Movie with a happy ending. Nothing really triggering in this one.

The other Movie Was/is a Male Survivor Type movie. It was made somewhere in the UK, I think scotland, but they do not speak with Scottish accents and I believe that it take place around London.
It's Title is "Real Men." I found it on Youtube and one can watch it, in sections 1-18 in its entirety on youtube.
I found it to be I little of and endurance test to watch, but definitely worth it in the end.
This Movie has some very Triggering parts to it and is like a UK variant of the Movie "Jet Boy" although the plots are very different and in many ways, although one does not actually witness abuse(Thank God), There seems to be a constant theme of it throughout the movie.
I think this movie would be an excellent choice for Non-survivor's or Partners of Survivors, because it truly grasps how cunning and deceptive abusers can be and actually are!!!!!!!!!! Definitely NOT a movie for children or even some teens for that matter as the subject matter is for a Mature audience Only!!!

Sorry guys but maybe if someone else watches this, then perhaps they will have better luck in writing a synopsis for the movie as it was never one of my strong suits.

Those who goto watch it, or have already seen this, let me know what you thought of it/ your opions of it.

Sincerely,
Logan

Hi Logan,

I've been watching anything I think will give me insight on my friends who've endured this. Thank you for the recommendation.

After I watch, I'll post my thoughts.

Many thanks,
D.

Another one from the UK,

Hesitated to pass this one on because of a few things unrelated to csa or male prostitution.

This is quite close to my experiences in London but I was 18-19 when I got paid.
Maybe not relevant for you D?

Here is a link to more of what the 2nd movie is about. Again, it is a lot like "Jet Boy."

Here is a link to part 1 of the 2nd movie recommendation, "Real Men" on Youtube, so you can watch it if you want to.

Remember that the subject matter is about Male CSA, so of course some may find it to be a trigger for them.

Here is the link:
