Our expert says:
I would recommend that you seek out counselling to be able to talk about your experiences. What you describe is child sexual abuse, and you would benefit from speaking about this and dealing with the past.
There is not necessarily a link between the abuse and your sexuality. There is sometimes a concern that abuse of this nature "makes" someone gay. This is not the case, but you may be confused about your sexuality and feel the need to discuss this with a therapist.
What is important to remember is that none of what happened was your fault.
Please consider finding a psychologist to see for therapy.
