We all know these books are real, we just don't want to face it because the government keeps it all hidden.

I like the idea of him being related to the person who did the rapes. I'd even bet he got sucked into helping.  And I'd bet too that the person who did them is the same person who hurt him. Remember his comments about "What if you don't fight?" when he was talking to Adam about Mercy's experience?

So in that case not his younger brother...I'm voting for creepy uncle.
And now to the feast of Capulet, where Romeo is doomed to meet his Juliet. And where, in a scene of timeless romance, he tries to get into Juliet's pants.

Well he hates all women right? And was abused as a child? So that would stick his mother in the frame as the abuser.

Or another idea mothers boyfriend (or creepy relative). Either way he'd blame her, especially if he was abused by someone she brought into the house, or didn't believe it was happening.

Maybe mum is an alcoholic, and child services (or the British equivalent) placed him with his next closest relatives, which just so happens to be his creepy uncle. But it is still all mums fault because if she didn't drink so much none of it would have happened.

Exactly. Her lack of involvement in his life could have resulted in the abuse. In the end she's partly to blame.

Maybe she handed him over to his abuser.  It's been done before.

And then called him a liar if he said anything about it.

If we go with the "creepy uncle" theory and assume that Ben's mother was not a factor in his ubringing, Ben's behavior toward women might reflect the uncle's opinion on women. Something he learned from a man and not due to any woman failing him when he was a child.

im going with "creepy uncle" or "alcoholic mother" both are very good scenarios.

Maybe she pimped him to any and all who wanted him.

That doesn't quite fit with this:

I don't see how he could have had the slightest doubt if repeated business transactions were involved.

Maybe because he was a child and his mother constantly told him that as her child he should do as she says?

In abuse situations, especially with children, they often believe what their abuser(s) tell them because they have nothing to compare them to.

I like the alcoholic mother/creepy uncle theory.
