23 People Confess The Dark Secret They Will Never Tell Their Family

4. I’m a male, and my older sister and a neighbor girl forced me to do sexual acts with them, including them anally penetrating me.

“My sister who is two years older than me and the neighbor girl, who is 3-4 years older than me, forced me to do sexual acts with them including them anally penetrating me, from as far back as I can recall to about age 10. Growing up it didn’t really bother me, and I never thought much of it, but it started to come back to me about four years ago, and I have what would probably be described as PTSD and trauma-induced depression. I am 24 now and have told one counselor and my current S/O. I have never told my family and I do not think she has. I am a male and the stigma that comes with this is very troubling. I am also quite troubled by this in general. What worries me most is, where they learned it from, and the possibility of hidden sexual assault elsewhere in my family.”

5. My older brother is a sociopath who used to beat me simply for the pleasure of exerting power over someone.

“The wrong brother died two years ago. My younger brother was sweet, caring and patient. My older brother is a sociopath who used to beat me simply for the pleasure of exerting power over someone. He has fucked up his body through an addiction to prescription painkillers but my parents will never see it.

Our father once walked in on him stomping on me with military boots he got just for the purpose…and asked why I had provoked him. I was six and my brother was a teenager.”

6. When I was doing my undergraduate degree, I worked as a prostitute for several months.

“When I was doing my undergraduate degree, I worked as a prostitute for several months. I did not really need the money. I had a decent scholarship; I wanted the experience. I worked out of a legal brothel. I gave up when I got bored with it.”
