Re: Ashamed About My Sexual Preferences

You’re definitely not alone. I don’t enjoy penetration at all, it’s not bad I just get no pleasure. But you keep hearing about how intercourses is the be it all for sex which is wrong, heteronormative, and just generalizing sexuality when it’s really really broad. Outercourse is much more appealing ...

Re: Staying at a friend’s

Sorry for the really late reply. Yes, that makes sense. I just tend to be a perfectionist so I’m hard on myself, but I’m trying to work on it. I think a lot of what you said would be helpful, realizing that we’ve grown up in a society based on assumptions regarding gender and how people of certain g...

Re: Staying at a friend’s

Hi, Thanks for the response. I didn’t end up staying at his house for other reasons, but even though the uncomfortable feeling has lessened it’s still there. Like my mom mentioned that I may not want to tell my dad since he might have reservations about it. And I hate that because I know it’s probab...

Staying at a friend’s

I just told my mom I was staying at a friend’s house tomorrow and she was shocked when I told her it was a male friend with a male roommate. I didn’t think about it being a big deal but now I’m wondering. Isn’t it heteronormative to think it’s weird to have male and female roommates? Then again me q...

Re: Ever Wondered Where a Sex or Dating Thing Came From?

Is there any reason why penile-vaginal intercourse is often considered “real” sex?

Re: help :(

Hi, Xmetalgirl, hope you don’t mind me popping in. First off, I can only imagine how upsetting this is. You wanted a relationship with him deeper than the one you have now but he doesn’t. That can be incredibly frustrating and sad. But bear in mind no one can make another person “want” to be in a re...

Re: Fear of sexual assault

But I’ve had her for awhile and am starting to feel more comfortable with her. I know I can bring it up with her, it’s just the...

Fear of sexual assault

Hearing all these reports of men being revealed to have sexually assaulted someone has triggered some anxiety in me. I know most men aren’t abusers but what’s really scaring me is when people who knew the assaulters day that they never expected them to do that. It just makes me wonder if it can happ...

Re: Confused About My Sexuality (Please Help!)

I know it’s frustrating not being 100% sure how you feel but trust me a LOT of people are the same boat. I think I changed my sexuality on here 3 times!

Echoing what everyone else has said, I am very sorry that happened to you. It’s not in any way your fault, it’s his fault, and you didn’t deserve to experience that. I don’t know if you’re religious in any way but I will keep you in my thoughts and I hope you can find the support you need❤️

Re: Drunk

First off, I’m very sorry that happened to you. It shouldn’t have happened to you. You are not overreacting; he raped you. A person inebriated in any way cannot consent to sexual activity. Even if you didn’t say no you didn’t say yes; either way, you didn’t give your consent to him. I’m really worri...

Re: Confused About My Sexuality (Please Help!)

It’s really personal if you are attracted to men and women. Maybe if you can spend some time alone with your thoughts without media or other people telling you how you’re “supposed” to be it could make things a bit easier. I still think we don’t have everything figured out but maybe you’ll understan...

So I’ve been at my new college for a while but I recently realized I have this MAJOR crush on this staff member. I know there’s no relationship allowed between staff and student, so I’m not going to ask him out or anything like that. But my feelings are stubborn :P I’ve never majorly crushed on a gu...

Re: Meh Intercourse

Just wanted to add that maybe intercourse isn’t your thing, at least right now. Sometimes people feel like intercourse is the only “real” sex when sex is quite broad, but that might not have been something that crossed your mind. In any case, I’m sure you and your boyfriend will find something you b...

You keep using the words “force” and “pressure” when referring to your boyfriend’s treatment of you. You also said that he said he wished you looked like other girls.

Hi, This might come across as rude and I apologize beforehand if it does, but I think the biggest problem in this picture is your boyfriend. From what you wrote, he does not respect your requests. You said you told him multiple times you don’t want to move in before marriage but he’s ignored your wi...

Re: Masturbation

Hi, Just going to throw my two cents in here: I’ve been masturbating since I was 6 or so years old. It’s not always sexual when you masturbate, it feels good to many people so sometimes you just do it for that reason. It’s actually quite common for kids to masturbate, so I don’t think it’s inappropr...

Re: If you could do away with one myth about sex and sexuality, what would it be?

Sam summed up one of the first ones that came to mind. For me I also want to get over the idea that sexuality is 100% fixed for everyone. I still feel like I mostly identify as heterosexual but sometimes I feel fluid and I thought I had to “choose” but sexuality is wayyy more complicated than I prev...

Re: Is the word “straight” heteronormative?

Thanks for the rrrsponse. And to my knowledge, no one in my family is queer. It was simmering in my mind but I agree that I should listen to the queer community tell me that it’s offensive instead of assuming.
