So the more I think about it the more I realize that I've been brought up to be afraid of sex, its wrong, I'll get STIs, I'll get pregnant, etc., etc.
However, I don't want to think like this anymore. I would love to have new sexual experiences, but I just can't get over this feeling that I shouldn't be doing it. It doesn't have anything to do with trusting my partner or confidence in my body. It just feels wrong.
What should I do to overcome this?

Hi Niki, One of the biggest suggestions I have for you is to learn as much as you can about sexuality and sexual health. Knowledge can be your best ally in putting old lessons and fears in their proper place. I don’t know what your sexuality and education levels are but here is an article to start you off with. 10 of the Best Things You Can Do for Your Sexual Self (at Any Age)
There are many other articles here that you may want to review and read the ones you want. Articles
