Men abused as boys, men between victim and perpetrator

Drawing on the experiences of many abuse survivors, this book concerns the lives of men who were sexually abused as boys. The term traumasexuality provides an original perspective on this abuse, encapsulating an exceptional new theory on the inner psychological damage that sexual abuse inflicts on boys. Peter John Schouten uses accounts and descriptions from his own psychotherapeutic practice conversations to demonstrate how men who have been abused in their youth often discover after many years that the abuse influences every aspect of their adult lives, foremost their own sexuality. He also shows that their partners do not realize they have essentially entered into triangular relationships with both these men and their abusers. Offering careful, sensitive, and practical advice, Traumasexuality demonstrates how partners can be of great help in healing.
