      One of the common responses to sexual trauma is a desire to re-experience aspects of your trauma with the intent that this time you have control over the situation. It could be changing your circumstances (remembering/imagining the trauma when you are in a safe place or with a new environment) or even just by seeking a similar situation and trying to change how you feel during. (E.g, this time it’s by choice) Because when it happened we were not in control of what happened or how we felt. Important to note you don’t have to be in an active flashback or consciously remembering to be re-experiencing.

      Update : hey everyone I've been doing well with this however I'm back to wanting a pregnancy because I feel as if I suffered some kind of infection which lead to a possible miscarriage. But I have no idea I still feel back pain and bloating and I'm still horny as well I had the urge to just push and push and push but nothing came out but a whole bunch of fluids . I'm still dealing with an Infection but the mess are helping . There was a lot of bleeding and spotting and clots when I went to the bathroom . I've been in pain ever since .

      It's so difficult because my partner and I have both dealt with sexual abuse. I am on the hypersexual and my partner is the opposite end . We have talked and have made arrangements that work for both of us.

        @Sunflowerlady I have the same situation as you, or my partner is, I am like your partner. May I ask about how you two made arrangements on this front? You can message me or open in chat however you prefer.

      It can be for some people. Everyone responds to trauma a bit differently. Sexual trauma can result in different behaviors ranging from hyper-sexuality to total aversion/avoidance. I personally am on the “avoiding” end of the spectrum, but your experience is valid. Nothing shameful or abnormal

      Yes. I speak from personal experience. It's just how victims deal with it. I hope this helps 🤗
