My ex and I are both survivors. When she and I were together it was more than a year before we had intercourse. However, this wasn't a bad thing since we quite happily engaged in other forms of mutual stimulation together. Even after we had intercourse for the first time this continued, which I was grateful for since it brought creativity to our sex life. It also helped me appreciate how special sexual intercourse is with someone you love deeply. At least it was for me anyways.
Love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.
