Sexual Suppression

Unread postby alexkangaroo » 16th June, 2018, 3:45 am

I'm at a point in my life where I want to think about relationships and getting into them, but the idea of a sexual relationship just kind of freaks me out. I knew I was attracted to guys since I was 10 and started to fantasize about sexual relationships/watch porn soon after that, but was always very insecure about my sexuality and hide it the best I could. I also didn't help that I was bullied by my peers and criticized by my parents for being "too feminine". I kind of avoided any kind of conversations that involved sex and acted as if I were asexual to the point where I was repressing my sexual desires. I'm still rather insecure of my sexuality, but really want to start having romantic/sexual relationships. I'm not sure if it's because I have no experience in this matter or if it is because I was repressing it for so long, but anxious about building a sexual attraction towards someone and acting on them.

Hi Alex. I'm not sure how old you are now, but being anxious about getting into a relationship is completely natural and nothing to worry about. It's something you will get over with time. :keke:
As for being insecure about your sexuality, that's completely fine as well. You don't have to come out until you're ready and until you feel safe to do so. Don't rush to start having relationships until you're ready.

dude it's fine! you can take your time, there's no need to rush things if you don't feel ready yet. Going into relationships at your own pace isn't a bad thing :)

I just wanted to let you know that I'm sort of going through the same thing, though yours sounds more severe. I'm in a budding relationship with a guy, and I just made sure that he knew I had no experience and asked to take things slow. He's okay with that, so I think I'm just going to take it at my own pace. Good luck to you!
