Personal warning:

I recently met with a new counselor on zoom. she proposed the idea that maybe my issues with initiating sex may be some kind of mental connection to the sexual abuse.
like possibly feeling like initiating may feel like I'm abusive in some deep sense.
Can anyone relate? If so, has anyone overcome this and how?

    Yes, I have actually dealt with this. And I will say, I have learned that no matter how long you have been seeing whoever you would be having sex with, open communication about consent helps. Communication truly is key.

    Relatable and reading comments I agree that open and honest communication from anyone involved is key
