I’ve never been molested, but when I was 8 to 9 years old, I was friends with a man who was very clearly grooming me. He showered me with gifts and candy. He had lots of video games and gaming systems, and I just loved going over there (all alone, of course) to play them. He gave me food and brought me to restaurants. One night, we were out so late, my parents called the police. He would sometimes go naked in front of me. Once, he said he would give me a toy, but only if I kissed him on the lips. I didn’t want to and said as much, so he took the toy away. I ended up kissing him, because I was a child who really, really wanted that toy.
I’m very glad it never went beyond that.
