i’m 20 & a woman. i have some sort of trauma with sexual experiences and so when they start to happen i get triggered and i try to stop it or i dissociate.

i have a boyfriend and i do want to have sex with him, but i’m so scared. i do trust him & he’s gentle, but i’m still a bit scared though.

another thing is i always get so paranoid that i’m gonna stink (even tho i know that i don’t).

any advice? anyone else been through this? is there a way i can feel safer and more comfortable about sex ?

Sadly I've had a friend go though a similar experience. I would suggest talking to your GP about it as they will be able to refer and offer you recommendations such as counselling and therapy.

It’s not that deep really
It is if you've been raped or sexually assaulted previously.
