Tyler, We are social creatures by nature, everyone wants to be loved and shown proper affection, a hug, a pat on the shoulder, etc... Sex after sexual abuse, you are not alone in feeling non sexual *at the present*. Some of us are over sexed, som

I'm not a boy, but I have discovered that in a pinch, if your hands are really dry, your girlfriend's body butter works. It makes the palms of your hands really shiny though.

I told my girlfriend. Then she talked me into calling N. He assured me it was fine given the circumstances. He thinks maybe my brain offered a tidbit of a buried memory because I was told I needed it to help my case. Despite being scared I still

Thanks for this. I have so much trouble believing anything good about myself. Every time someone says I'm a good person I think they're just being nice. When I up and bugged my therapist earlier he pretty much told me I need to start believing it.

No need to apologize. I never heard of it until I met that man either. It could be because of what your uncle did, I can't answer that. But you are definitely not alone.

I've never heard of asexual. If that is what I am, I apologize for putting this post in this forum. I thought maybe my uncle had screwed something up to where I don't want that type of stuff anymore. Thx for your input.
