I am a young man attending college. I'm afraid this question may be extremely difficult for all of you. I'm having feelings that disgust and confuse me, and I need help to understand if a certian degree of it is normal, or just what.
I'm Aroused By The Idea Of Non-Consensual Sex
I am aroused by the idea of non-consentiual sex with a woman. It disgusts me, and I feel ashamed, but I sometimes think about rape and forced sexual acts upon women.
I Like To Feel Power
I have read many articles that suggest that rape is about power, and not about sex, and I would agree with them. It is the feeling of power that I am attracted to, though I don't conciously feel powerless during my everyday life. Please help!
Is This A Stage?
Do young men think about things of this nature during a stage in their growth? Do I need to seek therapy immediately?
Is this AT ALL normal?
Bob, Jennae, and Judith answer this question.
