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.



PS This group has been one of the best things that has ever happened to me. The support of everyone here is moving and I'm appreciative.
