Many, many gay and straight male survivors have confided me over the years. Most were vulernable emotionally. Some would have had sex because that's one form of communication they know. I tell them, the last thing you need to do is add to your confusion by acting out behaviours you are not sure you want to be a part of. Since I have openly wrote about being gay for a decade now, and have put a face to male survivor for 20 years, it is natural for males to disclose their abuse to me. I feel a great responsibility to respond in respectful ways. Sometimes, straight (bi-curious) male victims have been surprised that a gay male would say no sexual overtones.
I've learned that sex, like any of a multitude of other choices can be an addiction, a drug-something to numb ourselves from our true feelings.
I'm so happy there is a message board like this where gay males as well as straight survivors can disclose in a safe place.
