I was emotionally abused as a boy by my mom (I think physically as well , but not really sure.)

I am married and have had difficulty having sex (orgasm) with my wife. I am interested in her - but feelings of being punished by a guy keep intruding. Intimacy with women scare me. I want it, yet I run away when she shows an interest. Its like i'm damaged goods. .

Does anyone have experience with sexual dysfunction as a result of being a survivor. I would like some company here. I feel really alone. I know I'm bisexual - thats really not the issue. . . its how to reclaim positive sexuality after having it damaged as a kid.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Thanks
