Me and my boyfriend have been together for 2 years and our sex life has died down a bit. We decided to try new things and I had him take a razor to my arm and cut me. Nothing deep and not anywhere vital, but hard enough to bleed. Oddly enough, it actually got me turned on. He got three cuts in and we had sex. Is this weird? It's only happened once and we never actually talked about it afterwords. I'm not a really a cutter myself, maybe once every other month or something, I'm not sure, it's not a big part of my life. The thing is, when I do cut myself, I do it because it feels good and I enjoy the pain and now it seems that it might enter my sex life (since I used to cut and masturbate.) I just wonder if this is uncommon? Is it something I should be concerned about?

Well, it's not unusual for some people to be aroused by pain, and while it's not common, you're not the first two people to have done it, either. [Smile]

The big things you should worry about are risks for disease transmission, since you're creating an open wound and he's being exposed to your blood. Also, if he's cutting you hard enough to bleed (or you are), you're giving yourself some injury that you need to heal from, and thus increasing your risks for infection.

I wouldn't do it too often -- there are other ways to spice up your sex life that are less risky. Okay?
