Sorry if my posts are getting bothersome, I'm still not sure where to go about this. Anyway..I was at a dance and this guy (I didnt know who it was..he came up from the back) tried to start dancing with me. I swear he tried to put his hand down my pants in the process..I moved away as soon as I could. He only ended up touching like where my underwear hit..I'm still scared. Any chance of pregnancy? What should I do to stop this from happening?
Thanks (again..)

No, there is not a pregnancy risk.

To keep that from happening, or handle that, you just need to stand up for yourself and say clearly what you are and are not interested in, e.g., "I agreed to a dance, not a lap dance, thanks."

It should also be pointed out that the acts of this person constitute assault. You may wish to press charges.

We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.

Surf, hon, please talk to your counsellor/therapist about this, too. Please do.

It's great you started talking about the possibility of you having OCD or anxiety issues with a counsellor. - please start talking about your fear of pregnancy when you haven't had a risk, too.

I can not imagine how this worry must be affecting you when you're concerend about pregnancy every time a male touches you. - I know it can be hard to talk about worries like this, but please tell your counsellor. - I am sure (s)he will assisst you in finding ways to deal with it.

Of course we'll keep listening and helping you as much as possible, but right now, I get the impression that a real life person's help is needed specifically in regards to your pregnancy worries, too, so that you can get them sorted out and find strategies to deal with them.

Also, regarding this bloke touching you: if this was a school dance, you might consider alerting school admin about this, too.
