Gosh, that's really hard. I'm so sorry if you were sexually assaulted and it sounds like it. Do you have ANY family member you can talk to or trust? Do you want the family members outed? Or are you just asking as it pertains to you and sexual- porn addiction? It sadly has been shown that males in particular that suffered molestation and sexual abuse often do struggle with sexual/porn addiction. 81 percent of men with a sexual addiction state they were sexually abused. I'm sorry. Can you see a therapist?
