I can't believe I found this forum. I've had these thoughts and fantasies literally my entire life - I remember having these hurt/comfort fantasies as young as 4 or 5 years old. And I was never physically punished or anything. Also, I'm a straight woman and very into gay men, or cute gay boys, and I'd love to comfort a vulnerable young boy who is struggling and/or hurt. I've never said these things out loud to anyone ever, so it's nice to know I'm actually not alone with these thoughts... well not sure if other middle aged women fantasize about the gays though...??
