My Traumatizing Years With Bryan Singer

He was 18 when he began his relationship with Singer. That’s legal.

The kid was groomed - but he was also over 18 and he himself started looking for other kids for Bryan to take advantage of and abuse. It's pretty sick, but as much as Blake was a victim - he also victimized many others. He probably only got fired because he got fat, too.

To all the gay men in this thread who are blaming the victim, we all know it's because you have a fucked up idea that sex equals validation. A lot of you are emotional cripples. And it's all because of gay culture.

I'm not blaming the victim, but I am acknowledging that he was 18 years old and in a very abusive, seemingly consensual relationship. And that the finding other boys for Singer to abuse isn't great.

That's all I'm saying.

You can’t get groomed at 18. You can get brainwashed and sucked into an abusive relationship.

No one said they had equal power. Most relationships in the world have power differentials. Remember 1950s housewives? They didn't have exactly the same power as their husbands who had jobs. Any man dating a man who has significantly more money or better looks has a "power differential" in some way. But it doesn't mean they were "grooomed".

So Blake saw all these women claiming to be victims of powerful men, and he decided that gay boys with no education or skills should be getting paid as well. Just because you don’t want to work retail doesn’t mean you deserve a check. Get your ass to the mall. It’s your only future.

His age had nothing to do with his susceptibility to grooming and abuse. 18 year olds are no more mature than 15 year olds. As a society we have decided that 18 year olds can die on a battlefield so they are also fair game for sexual predators.

My guess would be because, unlike women, gay men are less likely to go to the police and file a complaint, particularly if they don't have the financial resources one might need to go against someone as rich and powerful as Singer. In the case of Kevin Spacey, Anthony Rapp, though no major star, is arguably a successful enough actor that he can fend for himself unlike a person who may not have anything.

He was old enough to fight and die in the armed services. Being with a damaged person, while living in the lap of luxury, with an expense account and private jet travel, may be a tragedy, but it's not a criminal one. Most rich people are damaged, and a good percentage of them are bastards. If we began jailing them just for being bastards, the economy would grind to a halt.

And yeah, Singer is a manipulative asshole and I'm glad his career has hit the skids. But people who earn millions in a month rarely turn out to be benevolent, selfless, well-adjusted benefactors. And the twink was clearly aware that the arrangement was transactional; if he considered himself 'precocious' at 18, then sure he'd also have the smarts to know what what the deal was. I'm sorry this shitty thing happened to them, but shitty non-criminal things happen to lots of people - at least this guy here had some material benefits from it all.

R28 An 18 year-old isn't quite an adult to most. Not a child necessarily, yet many teen boys at that age are not MUCH more sophisticated! Girls usually have an edge over the boys, but that's irreleant here considering Singer's appetite.

I think this is one of those strange arguments, where those who insist these are adults, lose in the end. They're teenagers. That's what they are. They're in their own category.

They still cannot drink liquor legally, cannot rent cars, or take part in many other adult privileges in society. There are certain legal contracts for work situations, wherein an 18 year-old cannot be held to as well. Many rental properties will not accept an 18 yr-old without a co-signer as well. Rights and privileges are something to ponder when one honestly questions are these two groups (adults and teenagers) the same or equal.

All of you should do yourselves a favour, and realise it is a very rare occasion where an 18 year-old is close to the maturation of an adult. It's scientific as well, as their brains are not completely formed. Carry on with "they're not children", but stop already trying to equate them to adults. It simply doesn't wash ith the majority of people who know teenagers well.

[quote] but would an 18 year-old teen recognize Ian McKellen?

Why are you guys pretending like the kid was some mentally challenged toddler? He certainly looked young but he was 18. Remember what you were like at that age? Were you blue-eyed and innocent? In reality most kids at that point have had active sex life for years and have probably been actively using alcohol as well.

BTW, calling Singer a pedo is misuse of the word and unfortunately makes the real pedos look better since people start associating pedophilia with having sex with older teenagers. The correct term for Singer's attraction seems to be ephebophilia [the primary sexual interest in mid-to-late adolescents, generally ages 15 to 19].

Is Singer a creep? Yes. Was the boy forced into a relationship with him? No. Was he abused? No idea but it sounds like he wasn't in the sense of a spouse abuser or Marilyn Manson.

I have defended Singer here before and I still am. Yes I'm fully aware what he is and if he's broken the law he should face consequences for it. But having sex with 18 year olds in itself isn't illegal.

I myself moved out to live on my own when I was 17 when I went to study in another city. I lived and studied with kids my age and as young as 15. I do remember that hardly anyone was dangerously naive at that age anymore, and at 18 we most definitely were young adults. Sure people are different and I'm sure kids these days might develop slower mentally. But if this guy started dating an older man at 18 he most definitely knew what he was doing. And judging by Singer's reputation he probably knew fully well what he was getting into.

The point is - and it has nothing to do with compassion, or lack of it - an 18 year old is a consenting adult. At some point, one has to be deemed a consenting adult. This means it is on that person to consent or not. Many adults have been in abusive relationships. It's not good, or right, no one is saying it is, and no one thinks Singer wasn't abusive. The point is, once you're considered adult, it's up to you to take the responsibility for your sex/relationship decisions. As for the brain not being fully formed, until age 25, can you imagine the legal mess if the age of consent was 25? So everyone under that age would be considered a minor? And someone age 24 could claim statutory rape or child abuse? Or would need parental consent to marry? Stop the madness.

R63 No, misogynists and so-called feminists would be using her age as an excuse.

The problem is gay men like this guy want to remove the accountability and responsibility we excuse women from (because society still treats women like children) so they can get pity parties and civil lawsuits in this #MeToo era.

And Bryan Singer is a piece of shit and I’m 100% sure anyone he associates with is too.

So many cunts in this thread - an emotionally immature and vulnerable 18 year old with limited experience of relationships is the perfect target for grooming by a predator like Singer.

Most straight kids start to navigate their way through relationships in high school and learn social mores but with gay kids it's different.

And for predators like Singer, they groom the vulnerable kids, give them the world on a plate and then threaten to take it away if they don't get what they want. It's coercive control. There's been threads on another very wealthy man who always has a small army of Instahos to take on yacht trips. They get invited into a life of luxury and then slowly get frozen out if they start to say no to demands for sex.

I'm glad that so many men posting on this thread have never been in an abusive relationship but I've seen countless men and women who experienced it in their teens. This kid was a victim. Singer was a predator.

And as for the movie star who popped by, in the mid to late 00s a friend in London told me a story about how Ian McKellen's new PA had been struggling to find young blond rent boys in London that Ian hadn't yet fucked. Horrible man.

[quote]BTW, calling Singer a pedo is misuse of the word and unfortunately makes the real pedos look better since people start associating pedophilia with having sex with older teenagers.

[R74], it's taken me a long time to figure this out, but I'm now reasonably sure there are sock puppets all over the place who are employed by anyone with a public profile, or their sycophantic minions. They're paid to, among other things, go onto sites wh. review something their employer has done, and give it five stars.

Or the opposite. If their employer has had a book written about them that contains the least little bit of criticism that's not fawning praise, they go to the review sites and give it one star. Just look at reviews of one star and you can see the crap grammar.

1. I've hung out with Singer. He's a total creep who I hope gets thrown in jail. I don't care what for. He's that gross. Just as a person. Just gross.

2. But he ALWAYS dates guys over 18. He's borderline paranoid about that. He's very above board about what he wants. He's not a groomer at all. He's a flat out tell it like it guy. There's no cloak and dagger shit going on. He promises money and access. The young man promises to look young. Tale as old as time.

3. We were all 18 once. Older, rich men were an allure to many of us. That doesn't make this guy a victim. It makes him a bit stupid. As we all were. Move the fuck on with you life and don't wallow in a forced victimhood.

4. Frankly, I wouldn't be surprised if Singer has sock puppet accounts, btw.

Speaking of victims, here is a fun story about Anthony Rapp.

My cousin was an intern at the Letterman show in the mid-2000s. One of her fellow interns was some beautiful midwestern kid who was in college but looked quite young. Anthony Rapp was backstage because his friend Andy Dick was a guest on the show. Cousin was backstage with the other intern and she watched Anthony Rapp point to the kid and say "that one" to Andy Dick. The kid apparently left with them that night. He never returned to the internship - no one knew what happened - he apparently quit a few days later and moved back to wherever he was from.

The kid in this story wasn't in a transactional relationship, he was in an abusive coercive relationship.

If Trump kept telling Melania that he would destroy her life and leave her destitute if she stops having sex or puts on weight, then yes, she was in a coercive and abusive relationship as well. Countless women are given those threats to make them stay in abusive relationships. And a lot of men in gay relationships with older men.

when you are in an abusive relationship, it is because you have low self-esteem and you basically have no self-worth, as you think no one will love you, and your abuser is the only one who will love you, You are afraid of being alone.

This is NOT The case in this situation. Yes, Singer is a prick and abusive. But the author admitted that he only stayed to further his career and put up with abuse because of it

Now if he had said he really LOVED Singer from day one, and being with him was NOT about furthering his career, but because he loved him. That would be different and he could claim being in an abusive relationship. In his entire story he never once said "I loved him, that why I stayed" - all he says is "I was worried about my career"

The fact that he said Singer was abusive, but he put up with it for his career, he can't claim to be the victim,

Bottom line: no good can come come from fucking around with teenagers... unless you're a teenager.

I don't see this as a right or left issue R137. I think it was stated several times that this boy "wanted to feel special"... etc. I think he was actually naïve enough to have believed in the beginning that he would be Singer's boyfriend, not "one of the many boys" That seems realistic to me. I think this lad was victimised in several different ways.

Such cases don't have to be entirely black or white, and we don't need to say he deserved it all. We can still have empathy for someone so young, and still question their responsibility, motives, etc. No one should be letting Singer off the hook no matter what.

He would wear tight polyester stretchy pants that would cling to his dick and balls and you could make out the head and balls. He drove me fucking crazy with those pants. Since this was the mid-80s, I think the pants were left-overs from the 70s. He was gorgeous and just wanted to blow me while he jacked off. The thing is, he would insist I keep on my work dress shirt and tie while he got completely naked. Since I looked so young, this was suspiciously "pedo-ish" to me, at the time, but I didn't care.

R146, it wasn't especially fun or different than any other time I went out drinking. Just a few nights out with Singer and a good friend of mine, who was a good friend of Singer's.

I'm not an actor, was young at the time - but looked like an actual grown man, and had no interest in Singer (nor did he in me). But he was uncomfortable to be around. Shy, awkward and just plain creepy. Hard to explain. But he definitely used my friend (a twinkie type for sure) to procure other young men for threesomes. Not my thing, not my vibe. But again, if a young man was invited to Singer's? They knew exactly what was happening. And why it was happening. My friend would explain the situation in plain speak.

I went to a couple of his pool parties too - which were downright disgusting. Boys in the pool, lecherous daddies watching on the deck.

But I was into drugs back then and coke was everywhere. So, you know. Go where the free drugs are!

The issue I've noticed is Americans can't accept that teenagers are neither children nor adults. They are adolescents. Once you sexually develop and become conscious of the world at age. You have accountability and autonomy and definitely understand right from wrong. You just have the raging hormones which make you impulsive and the lack of world experience which results in making mistakes. But part of maturing is learning from your mistakes and becoming more empathetic and responsible. The idea that teenagers are children in adult bodies is idiotic and disrespectful as it implies they are mentally retarded. Teens act like babies simply because adults treat them like babies and will reward infantile behavior.

A teen working many jobs to support themselves or part of a large family with tons of younger siblings will certainly be more mature than a spoiled rich middle aged adult who never had to work. Maturity comes from experience and struggle. The brain is flexible and while it's true that the cortex reaches full development at 25. Teens have shown to be capable of driving, working jobs and even being capable caretakers far before that. I've met middle schoolers with more maturity and compassion than middle aged adults.

Most men are visual and more horny than women. Most people look their best in their late teens to early 30s. Hence both straight and gay men will chase after younger people for sex. There are emotionally immature straight and gay men who chose to hang out with and only date young people. But gay men unlike straight men have a far more narrow dating pool and fewer options. I've noticed gay couples are more likely to have age gaps and also be interracial compared to straight. If a gay man falls for a younger man and the other reciprocates. I don't think it's creepy. A lot of times it just happens and it's not always exploitative. Teen boys are stubborn and more independent in mindset. They aren't little boys who are naive and easily molded. Once the testosterone kicks in, they can't be told to do anything and will act as they please.

I have no problem with a grown man in his 40s being interested in guys 18 or so. But when the 18 year olds all look like they're 13-15 that sends up red flags all over the place. IMO if a man goes for 18 year old guys who look 14 then he'd go after a real 14 year old if he thought he could get away with it. The only reason Singer doesn't go after boys who are underage is because of his fear of incarceration.

Singer is a creep who abused young boys like Brad Renfro but he had plenty of older teen boys who were willing participants and used Singer for money and career advancement.

I don't get why people complain about teens and college aged people acting immature, stupid, irresponsible and getting taken advantage of. If we don't give them responsibilities, hold them a higher standard of behavior and educate them on how to be an adult and to be wary of things. Then what is to be expected? We live in a society that infantilizes everything, we prefer to keep young people ignorant and unaccountable for anything which of course allows them to be exploited and to act out. Teenagers are not idiots, they are intelligent and understand ethics. They only get into trouble because they aren't given more freedom to make decisions and proper education on how society works. Many teens are aware of this and purposely rebel and act out because society is less harsh and parents will bail them out.

One gay person's opinion should not make you ashamed of your sexuality. You realize the only thing gay men have in common is liking men? We are individuals with different opinions and backgrounds. Singer is disgusting and a total asshole but the idea that every gay kid involved with him was an innocent angel is also false. Adults should not go after teens but I find it ridiculous that older teens (16 and up) aren't old enough to understand that it's a bad idea.

It sounds like the guy had mental issues prior to meeting Singer. I'm curious if he came from an abusive home or had issues with his sexuality. Because anyone with a brain and self esteem would have just left Singer. He was working and living in New York prior to meeting Singer, so likely he came from a family with money to afford that.

Yes, in YOUR opinion. But I disagree with you. I, for one, am very much turned on by adult men who look much younger. But I would NEVER in a million years (and I'm getting up there close to that million years) ever mess around, have sex or be inappropriate with an underaged teenager, EVER. But if he's 24 and he looks 16 - I thinks that's hot. Don't give me the 'if tempted and thought I could get away with it' argument, because those [I don't even want to call them opportunities] have presented themselves, and I've never had a 'weak' moment, in the slightest.

Maybe it's a fetish - but no more depraved than feet, or rimming, or whatever a lot of you guys are into. What turns me on is my business - as long as it doesn't harm or abuse or jeopardize anyone else.

I have a lot to say on the matter.

First, I met my husband when I was 18 who looked 13) and he was 40. We are still together, I love him, and I’m now 47.

Second, the story in the OP is missing something. He doesn’t talk at all about how sexually attracted to Bryan he was. Because he wasn’t. He was using his young looks to break into the business and was carded by Bryan before the relationship went further.

Third, here’s my Bryan story. When I was almost 26 (and looked 16), I was in a show on Broadway. Gary picked me up on opening night. He was offering to be my manager but it was obvious to me he wanted me sexually. I wasn’t interested but I let him fly me out on my day off and take me to a basketball game I wanted to see. While in LA, he took me to some X Men reshoots. I got to meet Halle Berry and was introduced to Bryan.. I wasn’t attracted to Bryan and I guess he wasn’t interested in me. I guess I wasn’t as pretty as I thought. Or maybe I was too old. Or maybe it’s because I was already successful and didn’t need him. 5 years later, I booked a TV show. I emailed him with the news and he didn’t respond.

I’ve been emotionally abused before. As a minor. In both cases, I couldn’t escape the situation. I feel for the guy but this young man could’ve left.

They both procured other boys and girls to perform on camera. Justin was clearly money oriented and had no issue supplying porn to chickenhawks. After his website operation got busted and he had turned 18. He played the victim and ratted out all the older male customers to avoid getting jailtime. He claimed he was groomed into that lifestyle despite the fact he only started posting nude pics and videos because older men in chat rooms requested it and gave him money. Nobody in his personal life was manipulating him. He was addicted to the money and loved the attention and ego boost.

When Lady Colin Campbell wearily explained on her YouTube channel that Epstein, for all his crimes, WASN’T a pedophile, but an ephebophile, it must have driven the trolls crazy. They probably thought she was splitting hairs. Or even defending him. She wasn’t. She has a respect for the truth. Singer may be vile and manipulative, but sensationalist finger-fucking fraus who call him a ‘pedo’, deserve to have slander suits rammed up their rancid cunts. It’s a fact of life that plenty of teenage boys are drawn to older men. As this article makes plain, Singer was at pains to confirm the kid was of legal age. Hollywood is stuffed with Singers who take advantage of the young. A male #metoo movement which calls out bad behaviour might be a good idea, but as we can see here it quickly turns into a Salem witch hunt of false accusations and (in the case of freaks like R194) — of stalking.

No, this guy wasn't groomed or sexually abused or anything of the sort. He was a willing participant, and at 18 he's more than old enough to know better. He did it because it was a rich older man who let him into his high-roller lifestyle. He was essentially a paid whore. It doesn't matter how young he looked, even though him saying he looked 15 was clearly an attempt to make the story seem more salacious than it is. Guys that age are all about fame and money and attention.

This guy was also lazy. He could have parlayed it into an "autobiographical" novel - changed names, switched a few dates around - and said it was based on a true story - and then he could have had a friend leak to a few gossip mags that it's actually about Singer, that way he would still have plausible deniability. If he can't write (likely), hiring someone to ghostwrite it would have been good, because they could have helped him turn it into an actual story with a beginning, middle, and end. The "young hustler goes to Hollywood, gets sucked into masked sex parties" trope has been done, but it could have been something good, even turned into a movie.

It's buyer's fallacy or a gambler's mindset, no big mystery there. You invested so much, socially and emotionally, that you feel you deserve a payoff that turns out to never come or not to be worth it.

This case perfectly showcases what is wrong with our society in general. (Gay / LGBT) kids getting rejected by their blood relatives and teen / childhood peers find themselves lost in a harsh world full of predators like Bryan Singer. When you are lonely and lost and someone is paying attention to you, showering you with gifts, (pretending to) validate you and makes you feel good about yourself (probably the first time in your life) it's not that unreasonable to throw caution into the wind and fall for such a person (despite the predator's established bad reputation and several warnings of others). And after you fell into the trap, the chipping away at your new self-confidence begins, where you feel small again in the end having humiliated (maybe committed heinous crimes?) yourself in order to hold on to a relationship that once made you feel good about yourself (but not anymore, but what better alternative is out there? Better to stay put).

When Black (then 39) hooked up with Daley (then 19) it did seem very creepy, and then Tom's diving friend Chris Mears became an associate of Singer.

There's no cloak and dagger shit going on. He promises money and access. The young man promises to look young. Tale as old as time.

There is a difference between legality and morality. Singer doesn't get off on the fact that they are legal of age. He gets off on the fact that they look underage. And some people, including me, choose to find that creepy and morally wrong.

He has people who introduce him to legal adults who look like minors. Those are the ones who fall on their swords when the heat is on Singer. They are the ones who confess they procured and gave drugs and alcohol to teens who are not legally allowed to drink. They are the ones who get charged with sex trafficking charges, because poor Mr. Bryan Singer had no clue this was going on (at his parties or on his private jet). Singer's hands are clean.

[quote] He's very above board about what he wants. He's not a groomer at all.

Not true at all. His "move" is being so shy and it takes this wonderful boy to get him out of his shell, which usually "never happens". The boy simply must stay with him, and they will be so happy together. The boy makes Bryan want to be a better version of himself and no longer take nasty drugs or alcohol or be a total jerk with anger management issues. The boy is such a good influence on Bryan (sure, Jan). But surely, it doesn't hurt to still party once in a while, a line of coke here, a bottle of liquor there, a threesome with a hot new boy ... please, don't leave(, yet), you're the only one who can make me want to be better, to do better!

by Anonymousreply 229December 21, 2021 10:47 AM

I agree with the author of this linked article. We should stop using the word grooming for child abuse.

------

Let me focus on grooming versus manipulation. If you look at the definitions from the Merriam Webster Dictionary, grooming is defined as:

1.To clean and maintain the appearance of (as the coat of a horse or dog),

2. To make neat or attractive (an impeccably groomed woman),

3. To get into readiness for a specific objective – prepare (was being groomed as a presidential candidate).

Do any of these really describe what we know to be grooming in child sexual abuse incidents? You could make the argument that 3. somewhat describes what we know to be true, but let’s look at the definition for manipulation:

1. To treat or operate with or as if with the hands or by mechanical means especially in a skillful manner, 2. To manage or utilize skillfully or to control or play upon by artful, unfair, or insidious means especially to one’s own advantage, 3. To change by artful or unfair means so as to serve one’s purpose.

When I think about “grooming” in child sexual abuse incidents, definitions 2. and 3. of “manipulation” seem to more accurately describe what offenders do on a regular basis. In all other settings, grooming is used to describe pro-social behavior, but I surely don’t think child sexual abuse is pro-social behavior. [bold] To me, this behavior is decidedly anti-social, so why are we using a pro-social word to describe anti-social behavior? [/bold]

I didn’t know I was gay yet. He would take me to concerts and church while at that camp. Then when camp was over, we hugged so hard. He gave me a key chain with his picture on it. During the school year, he sent me letters, candy, books, and videotapes. I was in love with him but didn’t know what it meant. Then, the next summer he ignored me and did all the same things with another boy. I was devastated. He never sexually abused me but I was absolutely being groomed and he emotionally abused me. 8 years later, I seduced him and had sex with him and got him to admit he wanted to have sex with me when I was a child. I’ve never fully recovered from the relationship. Nowadays, he posts radical right wing cartoons on his FB page. I’m 47.

This thread is really weird because it doesn't seem to acknowledge that multiple things can be true:

But it's still abuse. Is the technical term "grooming" correct? Debateable. Only "gaslighting" and "cancel culture" seem to be terms that, more so than "grooming" everyone thinks they know the definition of, but it ends up being different by each person that uses it. 4. Because this person was 18 years old, they had a degree of agency a person who is under 18 does not have. But it's still abuse.

I swear this site is no longer just gays. It seems taken over by hysterical and puritanical straights who are homophobic and are accusing us of being pedos and degenerates for not coddling a stupid young white guy. This was a toxic relationship that was consensual on both sides. This Blake dude regretted it but he had every opportunity to leave. Nothing in that article implied he was in a passionate romance with Singer. He was using Singer to get his career ahead. He was basically a professional whore trying to break into the film industry. Singer did not molest him or force him to stay. I'm sick of young white people being made into babies when they are old enough to make decisions on their own and face the consequences. The real world sucks.

Most adults are attracted to sexual mature individuals regardless if they are underaged. Plenty of teens look older. So yes majority of adult humans would be by definition epbebophiles. Even though most older adults would never want to date a teenager and would choose not to pursue for ethical and personal reasons. Teenagers on the other hand are interested in sex and will seek it out. Hence why the age of consent around the world is between 14 to 18 with 16 being the average. It's not pedophilia because that is sexual attraction to prepubescent children and 99.9% of people could never see a child in that light. Teenagers are not children, they are sexually developed.

People really comparing this to a child grooming, an abusive marriage or working a job you hate? Blake had many options and chose the path he took. He wasn't even in love with Bryan Singer. He was just spending time with him and fucking him for connections, money and privileges. It was basically a sugar daddy scenario. Singer is a crazy lunatic who acted abusive but Blake chose to stay and continue doing sexual favors because he was ambitious, social-climbing and materialistic. The whole relationship ended only because Blake "aged out" and Singer found a replacement. Singer never pretended to love him nor wanted anything else but some companionship which he compensated Blake for. If Blake had any common sense, he would have left as soon as Singer started acting crazy and yelling. He didn't because he was addicted the money and fame by being in Singer's circle. He now regrets his behavior and wants to hop on the #MeToo train for clout. Given everything he was doing just to get a career in Hollywood. It's not like he's someone with integrity, dignity or self-respect. He seems like a narcissist in fact.

This is at least the second former boy toy of Singer's who has spoken about his time with him, and yet again it's a guy who was using Singer as much as Singer was using him, and yet again the relationship sounds toxic, but perfectly legal. It's almost like the media are trying to deflect attention from something much darker by putting out stories that make Singer seem like a creepy, abusive asshole, but NOT a criminal.

And yes, I absolutely believe there's something much darker going on. Years ago we had a fascinating thread about a "Hollywood sex ring" run by someone named Brett Schulte. Allegedly that guy picks up homeless teens (some of them underage), sets them up in apartments, feeds them drugs and pimps them out to Hollywood bigwigs like Singer, Gus van Sant or Andy Dick. Unfortunately, a lot of the replies in the aforementioned thread were deleted. However, I did some digging on social media, and could confirm that Schulte does have ties to people who are rumoured to procure young boys for Singer, e.g. (former?) Tigerheat owner/promoter Wayne Castro. A website going into more detail about Brett Schulte and the alleged "sex ring" (www.hollywoodsexring.com) can also still be accessed via the waybackmachine.

This is the kind of stuff that should be looked into, not these stories about willing participants of legal age, who were as "ambitious" and opportunistic as they were naive.

Singer has always creeped me out; just the look of him alone. It’s as though there’s no soul behind those eyes: there’s a real vacancy there. I have total empathy for that kid. When I was around that age, I was dealing with so much and desperately looking for validation, and ended up in a toxic, controlling relationship with a guy nearly 2 decades older. If you get a little bit of validation and you’re still not capable of believing in yourself, you can be willing to put up with a whole lot of abuse and think it’s ok or normal. Thank god I don’t give a shit anymore.

I agree he was young and impressionable and got addicted to the attention and it made him feel special. But I feel he should own up more to the fact he willingly put himself into that dynamic by choosing to trade sex and companionship for a career boost. He can't have his cake and eat it too. There are real victims who were groomed or threatened and raped but he's just not one of them. He was an older teen and legal adult and made an error of judgment by choosing to abuse the casting couch. Now he should grow up and admit he was complicit with this system as well.

Colton Haynes wrote an article where he heavily implied he used the casting couch and felt betrayed by the lack of opportunities and how eventually coming out had hurt his career but also says he's happier he did come out and not had to live a lie. He condemns the predatory forces and homophobia in Hollywood but admits he was enabling that system by doing what they expected.

R289 The people who used the casting couch were usually movie star types who don't have talent who rely on their looks and persona. The ones who actually worked on stage or that actor with hundreds of credits who finally got noticed by a casting agent or director don't have to rely on using sex for roles. Granted they may not become mega stars but it's ridiculous to think that tiny percentage of big celebrities are representative of the entire film industry. Most actors are not famous and rich and get by just fine. When you allow greed and vanity to dictate your choices to the point you prostitute yourself for a big break then that's also reflection of the individual too. There's alternatives to Hollywood. If someone is a real actor who takes it seriously they would opt for Broadway or maybe indie films.

British film industry doesn't seem to use the casting couch because many British actors are not beautiful. I've heard many actually are expected to go to an arts school and act on stage for years before getting into film.

The casting couch seems to exist in Hollywood because it's a huge capitalist industry all about image and sex appeal over substance. The casting couch would not exist if everyone just refused to do it. But many people are so motivated by selfish desire for fame and adoration that they forsake their ethics. The people use the couch are just as unethical as does who expect it. Power difference exists but when it's two adults and it's a bargaining situation. One can refuse the offer and maintain their dignity. Being a big celebrity film star is not a necessity. Just do theatre, do independent movies, travel to the UK or France to do movies, etc. Hollywood is not the only option.

There are still private religious schools that can and still kick out students for being gay. Gay kids are still harassed, are still bashed and beaten and disowned. Also gays are minority especially in the tiny world of high school. You think it's still easy for gay kids in high school to date when their options are so much more tinier? That's why so many gays move out of small towns to cities just to have an easier time finding a partner.

Yes they exploit naive young men and women. But should these young people not also use more intellect and realize trading sex for a career gain could just backfire? It's basically like gambling and they lost. You also act like these "kids" were forced to sleep with these people. They aren't. You realize there are millions of other careers and they could just go to college or take a trade? They are simply motivated by greed and vanity to be that desperate to get into Hollywood that fast. People here act like Hollywood is the only option for acting as if local theatre, Broadway, independent films and minor extra roles in TV and films don't exist. There are plenty of Hollywood actors who've earned their fame through decades of actual hard work. They are called journeyman actors.

As for "ruining their lives", 18-year-olds can ruin their lives in many ways besides fucking for a film role. You can join the military, rob a bank, get involved with a scheme, steal an identity, kill somebody, drunk drive, etc. Because once you reach that age, you make choices and they aren't always smart. Unfortunately, the world does not care and you must use more impulse control and think of the consequences. Parents fail their kids by not teaching them that. I reckon many of these young people who are desperate enough to fuck an old bigwig for a role come from broken dysfunctional homes or have some type of mental illness that they are pathologically obsessed with fame. Maybe it relates more to this country's failure to help the mentally ill. Anyway, the old bigwigs are gross for exploiting their power. But we need to stop removing the agency of these young people who prostitute themselves for fame.

Doesn't matter if they willingly prostitute themselves or go out on a shooting spree. Young white men are always "victims" and "just kids." If Singer went chased after young black, Asian and Latino men then nobody would care nor make excuses for them if they chose to partake. Nobody bats an eye when young women abuse the casting couch for roles and of course people get annoyed when they try to play the victim. For some reason, people want to take the side of opportunistic young white men who play the victim because it also feeds in the mass hysteria that gays are predators. There are real victims out there who are not properly getting the spotlight because narcissistic and entitled attention whores who are bitter about not getting their career boost are hogging up the spotlight.

Aren't we tired of this, yet? Bryan Singer has a type. And he apparently manages to keep that type within legal bounds, regardless of their outward appearance. Everyone keeps coming for him and he's still not in jail which leads me to believe that he knows where the line is and doesn't cross it or he's very good at covering his tracks.

Personally, I don't get guys who are into really young looking guys and think there's some psychological stuff that needs to be worked out there, but Bryan Singer is not on some island all by himself in that regard. Until someone can nail him for something illegal, then stop the witch hunt.

Every minute there is some new young thing getting off the plane at LAX from some bumfuck town who is willing to trade on their looks and youth. Then, after being passed around LA for a couple of years, they realize that their worth is only as good as the next pretty young thing who is getting off the plane. I feel no sorrow for them.

R331 - Absolutely. We have to delineate the difference between being a whore and being abused. This Blake kid is a common whore. But he’s worse than that because he’s a complaining whore.

R327, I'm with you. I live in Chicago, where black men (kids) a lot younger than this boy get pressured to join gangs, then sucked into drugs or criminal conduct, whether it's guns, carjacking, etc. I don't hear any of these folks talking about them as "abused" or "victims" like they do this pretty 18 year old white boy. They call them criminals and want them locked up. (I'm not saying they aren't criminals. I'm just looking for a common standard - do we hold people in their late teens accountable in the same way if they are white or black.)

R333 Thank you that's what I was trying to say. It seems young white people (late teens and early 20s) are seen as babies and not given full accountability for their own mistakes. You have people trying to defend morons like Kyle Rittenhouse (was armed and went to a protest) and Nick Sandmann (he was wearing a MAGAT hat and went to an anti-abortion rally). I read Blake's story and at some point I started rolling my eyes. He could have left at any time but he was just ambitious and motived by greed and power. He knew what the arrangement was yet acts like he was this victim of grooming and rape. Just because Singer dumped him and his career didn't go as planned. Blake still got money of this. I'm Black and I was basically taught that if I messed up, I would be on my own and get judged far more harshly in society for any error in judgment. My mom pretty much beat that in my head to stay in school, mind my business and be respectful to everyone and to dress well. I know young Latino, Indian and Asian people and they act far more responsible too because their parents don't baby them, they raise them to act like little adults and put a lot of responsibilities onto them. Something, we all agree on is some white American kids (mostly suburban) are coddled by society and get away with so much disrespect for authority that it's not shocking they have a victim mentality when they fuck up.

Blake made it a point to state that Singer had a type, young looking twink but at least past puberty yet he goes on to say that Singer made sure to have ID’s checked to ensure his friends were at least 18 years old, this tells me everything that I need to know about what a grifter Blake is.

Blake knew what he was doing and made a conscious choice to whore himself out to a powerful man in Hollywood for the benefits and became bitter when he aged out and Singer tired of him. A tale as old as time in Hollywood for men and women.

I don’t think Singer is without sin, he is a creep and probably has some dark secrets he is hiding but Blake is not one of them. What is sad about this story is that it makes actual sexual assault victims less likely to speak out.

So far r223 has nailed it.

And I don’t believe for a second that the kid was a saint who didn’t drink or do drugs. It’s a very well known fact that Singer wouldn’t accept sobriety in his encounters. And panic attacks happen after people do, say, a lot of meth and start crashing. The kid’s panic attacks and subsequent alcoholism speak volumes. Yes, Singer is the stereotypical “ hey kid try this” corner drug dealer, but one can walk away. It’s also obvious that his outburst was meth- fueled.

For the last time. An 18-year-old is not a child. Pedos are attracted to babies, toddlers and prepubescent children. It's an extremely rare disorder too. Plus child molesters are not strictly pedos, they are just sexual sadists who who got after anyone who is vulnerable. Bryan Singer shows ephebephile tendencies, he's a pederast, a chickenhawk and a twink chaser. Not a pedo as he likes boys who are pubescent with body hair, Adam's apples and working sex organs. He is smart enough to not go after underage teennagers (though I'm sure he did early on before he got more famous and established).

This situation is not pedophilic. It was an abuse of power by Singer but the supposed victim knew what he was doing and wanted something out of it. If an older teenager can drive a car, consent to sex, buy groceries, decide what college to attend and work a job then why can't he willingly prostitute himself? It's weird how people act like teens are not aware of sex and don't understand transactional relationships. Even in high school, goodlooking people are popular and flaunt it, will use their looks to get better grades and break the rules. Blake knew the game and tried to play it, he failed and was humiliated at aging out. He wants to play the victim now. I'm sure at first, he was naive but he chose to stay and got corrupted by the power and probably was obnoxious about being "Singer's favorite." He played with fire and got burnt.

Knowing in theory that someone is abusive is not the same as experiencing it firsthand.

Victims of abuse think they can control the abuser's moods. They try to maximize the good moments, but are always walking on eggshells anticipating the next blow up.

I don't think this kid was using Singer. I think Singer acted nice enough to lure him in, dangled the show biz carrot, then quickly moved the guy across the country and isolated him from his family and friends. I also think he got the guy started on drinking and drugs.

Imagine being in expensive Los Angeles and wanting to flee an abusive relationship. It's not that easy to secure an apartment, secretly pack up everything and slip out during the night.

It's really hard to uproot yourself, so you ride out the bad times. And the few good times renew your hope.

R363 I'm certain most coercive sexual abuse occurs in the most mundane settings like family gatherings, Little League, Boy Scouts, Protestant and Catholic churches, summer camps, corporate offices and the military. Abusers tend to know their victims as family members, friends or trusted authority figures. Hollywood actors are more along the lines of contractors, they are not really at the mercy of anyone. They may lose out on some opportunities by not putting out but if they have actual talent and ambition, they can find other avenues. It will just take longer and doing stage or indie stuff may be more rewarding. The casting couch only exists because idiots who coast on their looks and want a shortcut to fame faster and are willing to do it. As for the child stars who get abuse, the greedy stage parents just throw the kids in adult settings around strange adults who have power over them. The point I'm making is Hollywood does have perverts in power but also because so many people are opportunistic, greedy and enable them. Hollywood is only harmful to those who let it be and many actors chose to be prostitutes just for a shot at fame. It's hypocritical on many to play the victim. I do feel bad for the child and teen stars who got molested because their parents pimped them out. But I don't feel bad for the adults who chose to have sex for a gig.

It's confusing to me. If you witness a murder or a rape or a robbery and say nothing then you can get charged as an accomplice. But if you are willingly engaging with a known predator for gifts, turning your eye towards other abused people, possibly helping said predator get victims and then after cutting off contact and walking away. Waiting for said predator to hit rock bottom and then tell your sob story. That's not just as bad?

Predators like Singer and Weinstein only get away with their actions because so many people enable them. Everyone involved needs to be held accountable because the issue of Hollywood bigwigs abusing others only can occur if people allow it. You can keep throwing these people in jail and cancelling their movies but the elephant in the room is the culture of celebrity and narcissism allows this occur.

Way too many of these victims who speak up seem motivated by greed and attention. Are they volunteering with local shelters or speaking at schools about sexual assault?

This all started with DEN (a website like youtube, but before youtube blew up) and the guys who ran it, who were pedos. They molested a bunch of teen boys (aspiring actors) and they were successfully sued by one of their victims. They bolted to avoid paying and went into hiding in Europe. The one guy who was ordered to pay, died penniless. The victim then tried to sue anyone associated with them, but didn't get anywhere. This is where the rumors about Singer started. He was at their parties, but again, there is no evidence that he committed any crimes even though a bunch of those grifter hustlers, who were at those parties, have tried to sue Singer and others to get them to settle out of court, and score some cash.

I think it's finally over, because the statute of limitations has finally run out. All this took place in the early 2000s.

Weirdly, there is one player who has avoided prosecution and has become a Bitcoin billionaire and it's a guy named Brock.

I met a couple of these guys back in the day, because they were looking for content for their website and they solicited a film organization I was in, and made a presentation. No one was really interested and i forgot about them until the story broke about the underage boys being molested at parties.

The other person associated with them is Sean William Scot, who unfortunately appeared in one of their web series as an actor, and now probably regrets it, because at one point all eyes turned to him, as if he had something to do with the horrors that went on in that jacuzzi, at those parties!

He created the concept for a show and was executive producer. He most likely didn't do anything else for that show besides collect royalty checks.

But he's still not some powerful CEO that can throw tons of money at people to make the problems go away (which actually doesn't work unless the people choose to take it). Even Michael Jackson who was far more richer and powerful than Singer ever was could not get away with her perversions for too long and was ripped apart and exposed. Polanski himself actually had to move abroad to avoid getting charged. Woody Allen still suffers ton of backlash for his creepy relationship with his stepdaughter. I think Singer is just very smart and also realized that it's easier to just manipulate dumb, young gay bumpkins who are fame-hungry into sex with false promises. Many 18-year-olds can pass for younger, so its not hard for him to live out his fantasies. He's toxic and immoral but still nothing he did was illegal so far. If there's more evidence then he will get busted sooner or later. I do wonder if Brad Renfro was still alive, would he comment on this?

No idea what Clark did or didn't do with Renfro but I remember Clark telling a story about Renfro in Bret Easton Ellis's podcast. They were filming a movie, probably Bully when Renfro was 18, and were staying in a motel. At some point they noticed that Renfro had escaped from his room through a window to score drugs. Not sure I remember that totally correctly but if I do it sounds like the production team was trying to keep Renfro off drugs. If the guy had to escape from a motel room to get high it sounds like he wasn't in any need of enabling, he was a full-blown junkie.

River Phoenix was probably 20 when they filmed Idaho. He'd been in the business for a long time at that point. You really think it was Van Sant who corrupted him? If the stories about his childhood are true he was sexually abused as a kid in that cult his family lived in. I very much doubt Van Sant was the reason he went off the edge. No one forced him and Keanu to live and party with the street kids although I assume Van Sant made it possible. Was Van Sant trying to get River to become an addict? Why the hell would he since River was starring in the film Van Sant's career depended upon. Why the hell would he have wanted River to do anything but his best as an actor?

I don't quite get this idea that young men are so easily corrupted by older figures of authority. It reminds me of my mum when I came out to her at 18. Her first question was had I been abused by some older guy that had turned me gay. There's certainly whiffs of that good old homophobia present in this thread as well where older gay men ruin the lives of young innocent cherubs by forcing them to have that awful homo sex with them. Newsflash, the fraus here probably still don't realize how much young men want sex. Guys start wanking at 12 or 13 and some can wank 10 times a day, most at least once or twice. Singer's ho knew fully well what he was after, and he did it partly to get money and fame, but I'm convinced he enjoyed the sex as well.

R407 Clark actually "kidnapped" Brad. He was hellbent on getting Brad for the lead in Bully. He drove to Tennessee to pick up Brad from his home. Brad was strung out at the time and Clark took a bunch of photos of Brad shooting up. He even made a collage of it called "Tennessee." After they finished that photoshoot. Clark pushed Brad into his car and drove him to Florida to shoot Bully. So Clark was not in Brad's best interest. He just wanted his movie the way he wanted. Brad was just a tool.

R408 I don't know what the rules were in 1997 (@ 25 years ago) but if there are many child extras I don't know if all their parents need be present. Also this kid said Singer approached him after basketball practice in a locker room and stood behind him at a urinal, telling him he was "very good looking" and suggesting there might be work for him in the movie. Many of Singers victims have not given their names but this kid did and if he didn't need to, what would be the point of making his experience public and attaching his name?

The Atlantic article states that 12 months of investigation went into the story and that many witnesses were interviewed. There are stories from many underage boys.

Larry Clark most certainly is into young meat. No idea if he has sex with teens but he's obsessed with them and their sexuality. R409, if Renfro was already shooting up heroin at that point I doubt anyone can really blame Clark for being an enabler. I vaguely remember him telling in that podcast that Renfro's drug use was a huge problem for the production. As with Van Sant I doubt he was there to offer the needle. It's possible he did use drugs to get him to star in his film, though, but who can tell. I've personally walked away from people whom I've known to be addicts since they are the most untrustworthy people there are.

Renfro was, sad to say, already a lost cause at that point. I mean, a movie star shooting up heroin at 18? Where was his family? It's still amazing that Drew Barrymore managed to leave the drugs behind her and ended up having a normal enough life.

Absolutely no proof of him having been on the movie. They would want some proof of he were a woman accusing a heterosexual director of child molestation. The burden of proof is far lower when gays are concerned.

Also the pic he gave the Atlantic is him sitting shirtless in a locker room? Yeah he’s not thirsty for followers or attention AT ALL 🤣

There is something called an "Exhibit-G" on all films sets. It is where the actors are "signed in" and "signed out" every day that they work. The Screen Actor's Guild" requires it. It keeps track of pay so that an actor can't claim that they worked but didn't get paid. It protects the actors and the production companies. That document is then delivered to the guild where they keep it on file forever. There would be a record of every actor that appeared on camera or was on set. The guy is lying and the Atlantic KNOWS that the article is complete bullshit and made up fantasy. All they have to do is "imply" that something improper happened and they are legally not liable.

[quote]And the Atlantic is a notorious schlocky bullshit magazine with questionable credibility.

That's just a bullshit sweeping generalization that doesn't disprove anything cited in the article.

On December 7, 2017, three days after The Hollywood Reporter broke the news of Singer’s firing, a Seattle man named Cesar Sanchez-Guzman filed a lawsuit against the director, alleging that Singer had raped him in 2003, when Sanchez-Guzman was 17. The day after that, Deadline Hollywood published an interview with a former boyfriend of Singer’s, Bret Tyler Skopek, in which Skopek described a lifestyle of drugs and orgies.

According to multiple sources, Fox had no idea that the Sanchez-Guzman lawsuit was coming when the studio fired Singer. Still, Sanchez-Guzman’s claims shouldn’t have been much of a surprise. Almost from the moment his star began to rise, Singer, who is now 53, has been trailed by allegations of sexual misconduct. These allegations were so well known that 4,000 students, faculty members, and alumni at the University of Southern California had signed a petition asking the school to take Singer’s name off one of its programs, the Bryan Singer Division of Cinema and Media Studies—which the school did immediately after Sanchez-Guzman filed his suit. As one prominent actor told us, “After the Harvey Weinstein news came out, everyone thought Bryan Singer would be next.”

by Anonymousreply 421December 26, 2021 10:39 PM

We spent 12 months investigating various lawsuits and allegations against Singer. In total, we spoke with more than 50 sources, including four men who have never before told their stories to reporters. A man we’ll call Eric told us that he was 17 in 1997 when he and Singer had sex at a party at the director’s house; another we’ll call Andy says he was only 15 that same year, when he and Singer had sex in a Beverly Hills mansion. Both men say Singer, who was then in his early 30s, knew they were under 18, the age of consent in California. (They asked The Atlantic to conceal their identity for fear of retaliation, and because they didn’t want certain details about their past made public.)

The portrait of Singer that emerges is of a troubled man who surrounded himself with vulnerable teenage boys, many of them estranged from their families. Their accounts suggest that Singer didn’t act alone; he was aided by friends and associates who brought him young men. And he was abetted, in a less direct way, by an industry in which a record of producing hits confers immense power: Many of the sources we interviewed insisted, out of fear of damaging their own career, that we withhold their name, even as they expressed dismay at the behavior they’d witnessed.

Using salacious language to give the "allegations" drama and credibility. The Atlantic is crap and so is the article.

Hustlers will hustle to get a cash settlement. If anyone had ANY proof they would sue for MILLIONS. But no one has. Why not. If you could make MILLIONS? Michael Jackson's accuser got 20 Million!

R407, the way it works is that the creeps can spot the gay kids and use their natural interest in sex to manipulate them.

They do not "corrupt" the kids. They manipulate them. There is nothing mutual so it is not about the kid's needs being met. It is only about the older man's pleasure--because they also use the kids inexperience as a way to keep it all about the older man.

This should never be anyone early sexual experience.

R425, sex is awkward for anyone at first, no matter who you're with. And I'm sorry but who are you to say what young men like and don't like sexually? How on earth can you claim with a straight face that a young man doesn't get intense pleasure from fucking older guys? You're practically saying young men are unable to make coherent decisions about their sex life which is total bs.

I mean, seriously, we're talking about people who are old enough to drive, to buy booze (in certain places), to go to the military and war, and yet you act like they're precious little babies who don't understand human relationships at all.

Are you male or female? You sound like someone who refuses to accept that her son started wanking furiously at 12, started being active sexually with others at 15, and when not getting the real thing is fucking his Fleshlight furiously many times a week. The kid, aka an 18 yo man, is not a child anymore, and he certainly knows if he wants to get laid or not. Besides getting truly raped men tend to only have sex when they want to.

And obviously I'm not talking about 13 or 15 years olds here, but 18 years olds, who are adults in many ways.

He certainly has his own nihilistic view on teen sexuality.

BTW, anyone who doesn't know their history should take a look at teen porn from the 70s. Both in Europe and in the US they made tons of it. It's not surprising at all that teen porn is still one of the major genres in the industry. This all connects together with Hollywood as well.

R439, I'm sorry for you. Still, it goes without saying that people are different. Some, maybe more naive guys are groomed by older men, some youngsters go out seeking older men pay the bills. No idea what happened to you but love affairs can be hard in many ways, especially for young people, even without any kind of manipulation going on. If you were 18 and were not coerced to do anything against your will, I'm sorry but my sympathy levels go way down, although yes, I get what you're saying. My days of being a teen are decades behind and I'm using my own life experience, and the lives of others I've witnessed, as my moral guide.

There's no denying that people get used and people use others all the time. When people first meet me I can come off as extremely self-assertive and cocky, and even as a bit of a selfish asshole. You don't believe what a turn-on that is to some people. And such a disappointment when it turns out that deep inside I'm a golden retriever puppy. I've been dropped so many times when people realize that.

It took me some time to realize that when Eurythmics sang, 'Sweet dreams are made of these, Who am I to disagree... Some of them want to use you, Some of them want to get used by you', that they were speaking the truth. Some people are more than happy to be led by others, they want it. Obviously when things turn into coercion and violence we're not talking about a healthy relationship anymore. And obviously I'd like to think that in a relationship both are equal but sometimes things just aren't like that.

BTW, he's a father of 3, and in an interview said he's happy his kids haven't used drugs. So who knows what he's really like. This from the same interview, and if people don't know he started as a photographer until becoming a film director.

[bold] Sometimes your work is very disturbing. Do you think that art should have any boundaries?[/bold]

Well there has got to be some things you can't do. You can’t kill people, you can’t hurt children; of course there are some limits.

But I think that almost any part of the human experience is the human experience and why can’t we reflect it? I come from a period back in the ’50s when Eisenhower was president, and when I was a young kid everything was hidden. No one talked about drugs or child abuse or any of those issues. In America it just wasn’t supposed to be happening. But I saw kids come to school with black eyes and their parents beat them up and I knew kids with alcoholic and drug-addicted parents.

[bold] What about child abuse?[/bold]

I was in junior high school with a girl who had five brothers, and they were all fucking her so her father probably was too. Everybody knew it, but this was never discussed. You never heard about these things. So when I started making work, I said, “Why can’t you show everything?” There were great photographers doing great things but they pulled their punches – there were certain things that you just couldn’t see.

[bold] And you felt like you had to show them?[/bold]

I started thinking, “Why can’t you see everything?” If people had been making these photographs, well then I wouldn’t have had to make them. I always felt that. If somebody else were doing it then I wouldn’t have had to do it. These are just things that I see going on that are very important in a lot of other people’s lives. So it is just the way that we are as human beings at this point in time.

Gloria Grahame was also a sleaze bag, she slept with her 13 year old stepson.

So believe me, I am not normalizing or defending him, I think he's garbage.

Otoh if he wants to go out with a consenting adult who's 18, that is up to the consenting adult as well as Singer, and there's not a lot the law can do about that, regardless of how young the 18 year old looks.

That's only a theory, not a fact, but it seems you and some others here seem to take it as gospel. Then you get all worked up when you're told it's not pedophilia to fuck people over 18. You're basing your hate on your own fantasies. And yes, Singer likes teen guys but judging by his history they are at least over 16. Is he into kids as young as you're insinuating? Who knows, could be, but the guy this thread is about was over 18 when they started dating.

And I'm fairly certain he knew what he was getting into, and he most certainly could've left any time he wanted to. He was an adult and was used by an older man because he agreed to it. He was not a baby, not a 12 to16 yo kid but an 18-year-old. You can fantasize all you want about Singer's proclivities but that doesn't make it real.

Quite frankly Singer sounds like a very fragile individual who seems to have been almost suicidal at many points. To my understanding he was never violent with this guy which in itself says a lot. I personally don't view older teen guys as little babies since I was one and have known many. It sounds like many people who view them as little kids don't quite understand what young men are like behind their parents' backs. Especially young men who seek sugar daddies have left their childhood behind them ages ago.

Well there are 20 kids, some under 16, who have accused him not only of coming on to them, but in some cases, rape (a 15 year old). Anyway, what do you mean "at least over 16"? The age of consent in California is 18. This means it is a crime to engage in sexual intercourse with an individual 17 years of age or younger in California.

[quote] Polanski himself actually had to move abroad to avoid getting charged

Sort of but not really, Roman Polanski pled guilty and served some time but he fled to the motherland because his sentence was rumoured to be extended.

Is the innocent little lad still traumatize?

Regardless of the age of the guy, Singer acted like a creep and an asshole. It takes two to tango, so people are somewhat to blame when they let themselves be victimized by predators and narcissists over time. If it's someone 18-20, they haven't spent a lot of time in long-term, exclusive relationships and it's easier to play mind games with and brainwash these kids. Singer should be ashamed of himself and hopefully his ex will learn from and not repeat the experience. Being involved in this kind of abusive relationship is hard to get over.
