7. No kidding, and the sexual abuse may be at the hands of a female
relative, something that floored me when I first met somebody who had suffered it. I later found out the process is dismally the same for female sexual abusers of boys, that it involves inflicting pain in the genital area and that it ends as soon as puberty occurs. The guy in question was a friend, somebody who found me a great listener if not a turnon. He was into B&D and needed pain in order to climax, and yes, he did make the connection. Reading since then has turned up both this and the increased suicide rates. My friend succeeded in drinking himself to death.

What you learn when you're sexually abused as a kid is that you don't matter. What you think, what you feel, and who you might be are less important than your body parts. You become worthless and you realize no one can ever be fully trusted.

So yes, put this one in the DUH files. And yes, most survivors of childhood sexual abuse remember it very well.
