Hi, I am new here. I made some posts but was recommended to introduce myself. I think the main reason I am here is that I struggle with sex stuff. Just typing the word makes me feel gross and I have considered getting help, but I have realised that I don't really want it in the traditional sense... I'd like to not be uncomfortable, I'd like to not feel gross, but I don't care about it, or having a healthy sex life except for the preservation of my relationship. If I never had it again, if I could never do anything sexual in my life, I'd be happy with that. I don't think I am asexual, but that I have an aversion and it's so deep rooted and saturated with guilt that even a few-second-long scene in a movie is enough to make me freeze in disgust for 1-2 hours, and then usually cry when I am alone because of the feeling it gives me.

Would therapy actually help someone like me, if I saw an actual sex therapist? If I don't want help in the traditional sense?

Thanks for reading my rant though... I just had to get it off my chest. Have a great day x

I'd say so. Possibly. As you've pin pointed the root and a complexity of contributary factors.

It helps writing a journal.
It may seem pointless
But it's anotherway of 'off loading' with annonimity.

:welcome:

I did journalling for about ten years, but I never found it really helped with that feeling, just was nice to write. I'm not so sure I'd want to spend any extra time dwelling on this stuff unless I was in therapy trying to sort it out. But thank you

hi Blue Pen :welcome:

why would you want to see a sex therapist
if its something you want to avoid ?

why not just see a good alround therapist
who does trauma and bereavement ?

I hope you find the forum helpful
