In my experience CSA has definitely affected my self-esteem and ultimately my relationships with women. Basically, I have issues with trust and intimacy. When it comes to sex I became what is commonly referred to as a "performer," which basically means I could not share nor enjoy sexual intimacy with women in a mutual way. Although different on the face of it I believe our two problems are related to the severe trauma of our abuse, which taught us long lasting lies about sex, trust, and intimacy. However, I am on to talk as I am having quite a few struggles right now but I wanted to respond to your question : /
