43. An extremely thoughtful post.
Few people would contribute so much, and very very few would ever traverse the terrain you you have had to deal with in your post. I appreciate your writing, and the thoughts behind it. I am also sorry that you were put into that awful situation, robbing you of so much in your youth (and afterward, from the sound of it. Your courage is to be applauded!
:thumbsup:

(and PS...so true about the distinctions between "porn" and erotica.)
