ok...so this might be a bit "personal" or not accepted to ask or talk about, so I apologize if I offend...but does anyone have issues with "pleasure" causing anxiety? like the release of the feel good hormones rather than relaxing you..making you feel anxious? whether you do it yourself or with your partner? I just want to know if anyone else has experienced this. it's not anxiety around the act but rather just how after you do it how you feel. sorry if that's TMI!

      Yes, this happens to me almost every time after I've done that. I get super anxious and my body just feels terrible, it usually lasts 20 to 30 min then it slowly goes away.

        @Kidara oh wow that's rough. Yeah it just takes away from the enjoyment for sure. It's so dumb because I didn't used to have this issue, but my anxiety stems from a incident with sugar when I was prediabetic and spiraled me into it bleeding into every aspect of my life. It's unfortunate..and I really hope that one day I'll overcome it and be alright...but for now all I can do is talk myself through the anxiety and know that I am safe and ok and it's just anxiety 🤷🏽‍♀️

      All my life. I freeze and get all messed up... Sometimes before, during or after. I kinda think maybe I'm ace and that's why. Blah I'm a hot mess lol

      I think I do kinda understand what you mean, it's definitely something I think I struggle with, but like you mentioned it's sooo difficult to open up about., ty for having the courage to at least try 🙂

        @niceshyguy yeah I'm a very open person, but I know not everyone is like that so I just wanted to see if anyone would open up with me and maybe has gone through this as well.

          @Serenity_Love that's actually a great quality to have, I wish I could because I'm such a shy person, i always keep everything bottled up. To my own detriment. But I do respect so much what you are saying, especially about the anxiety, I'm sure it's for different reasons, that it happens to each other but it can be quite overwhelming.

      I haven't like afterwards but I actually once had it happen during to the point we had to stop.

        @qtdoll oh man that sounds awful! Did it last for a while or were you able to calm down pretty quick once you guys stopped?

          @Serenity_Love it took a little bit for me to calm down xx
