I was young, went on a vacation with a cousin, he touched me and squeeze my penis until I urinated and it happened many times till I left that place. When I returned the next year, same thing. After that I told no one but kept my distance from him and moved on with my life. Low key, no one knows I struggled from masturbation addiction since then and of course, porn addiction. I thought it was my fault cos I might have had a hand in it but he was an adult and I was just 12.

It made me think I was gay but somehow I’m talking myself out of that narrative. I haven’t completely healed but I will one day. I’m sure of it.
