TW, RAPE & SA . . . . . . . . . . . . . Got a question for the people out there that have PTSD or CPTSD specifically from being raped, molested, or sexually assaulted, do any of you have extreme hypersexuality from the trauma that you experienced? I sometimes can't make sense of why I have such a high libido despite being molested as a child, and it sometimes makes me feel bad...

      For me, that hypersexuality was a bit of reclaiming, like what happened couldn't break me. And it didn't. But each solo experience was sort of a celebration, and then when I finally had a safe partner, an opportunity to work some of my shit out through play and discovery without any fear of having to do anything I didn't want to.

      Oh yes I also have been really concerned with that, I was molested/ cohersed into doing sexual things a few times but I don't understand why I still get so aroused easily from anything and just want to have sex a lot despite being molested... I've never talked to anyone else who's felt this before honestly.

      Yes I either want sex all the time or I don't even want to be touched there are days I stand in the shower and scrub because I feel gross

      Yes, I do as a result of SA and trauma. AND it's VERY common. It's nothing to be ashamed of. If you want help managing it, it's a good idea to talk with your health care team. It's something I'll be doing in the future because there are times when it really interferes and bothers me.

      So, it’s definitely normal from what I’ve found through my time. I used to hate it and would feel panic every time (not as bad these days) but now things are easier for me. It’s been 20 years almost. And I’ve worked through the largest part of it so I think that helped. I definitely understand feeling bad from the hyper sexuality though.

      I did at the age of 18. Once I lost my virginity I was just having sex with almost anyone. I just wanted them to want me in that moment. I was really just a hoe.

      I feel like I go back and forth. Either I have a really high sex drive or it’s completely numb down there. Rarely is it in between, at least not before I got put on antidepressants. Now that I’m taking medication I’d say I only want to do it a couple times a week vs a couple times a day. Haha

      I don't, I went in the opposite direction, kind of, however hypersexuality from this kind of trauma is extremely common ❤️

      I also have hypersexuality due to CSA, it's a completely normal thing to expirence as a response to sexual trauma especially if it was normalized during youth. Some of my medications lower my libido which has helped with it alot (birth control mostly). It's hard to see any awareness about hypersexuality but it's nothing to be ashamed of especially since you can't really control it

      I have trauma from being groomed when I was 10-11 (it was over the internet- so if this doesn't fit under what you meant then I apologize) however I have developed hypersexuality from it, I'm pretty sure it's fairly normal, my boyfriend also has sexual trauma and he's also hypersexual

        @RiverSpacePirate I'm very sorry for what happened to you when you were young, I was molested by three guys, one my neighbor, and the other two were family members when I was 8-10, you're not alone. ❤️

          @XCxsmic.CalamityX oh goodness, I'm so sorry to you too, i was harassed over the internet by someone who would send me nude pictures and request them back, he would also constantly try to do sexual things with me, and stuff along that. I'm genuinely so sorry you had to deal with something like that so young ❤️❤️
