One in every six males has had unwanted or abusive sexual experiences before age 16. This is a conservative estimate. The abuse is almost always by a person, a male or female, whom the boy knows. In When a Man You Love Was Abused, Cec shares his own abuse (leaving out graphic details) at about age 7 by an old man who rented a room in his family's home and at about age 3 by a female relative.
He also details his recovery of how he learned to trust, to feel, to handle flashbacks, and to keep boundaries. He tells the stories of men who were abused and of important women in their lives -- primarily wives and also mothers -- and how they made peace with the past.
