Sexual Aversion Disorder from the DSM-IV
(ask your therapist or a professionally licensed counsellor)
"anxiety, fear or disgust when confronted by a sexual opportunity with a partner.
The aversion to genital contact may be focused on a particular aspect of sexual experience...
Some individuals experience generalized revulsion to all sexual stimuli; including kissing & touching.
The intensity of the individual's reaction may range from moderate anxiety & lack of pleasure
to extreme psychological distress." (p499)
Sexual traumatization >>> Sexual Aversion Disorder >>> sexual identity/orientation confusion >>>?
Add cultural, social, religious & familial influences & you get the picture.
Talk to a professional. Talk to a couple. Ask questions.
Make an informed decision.
