    Once I made the mistake of telling a partner about pictures existing. He just looked down on me (hahaha) and said “I don’t think of you any differently and won’t be upset if they get out”. Which really, was his way of putting shame on me in a passive aggressive sort of way. I don’t care that the pictures exist. I don’t even care if they get out! I know the person who has them isn’t going to post them. I think he was just prudish.

    I mean it’s this “my body is a temple” BS that I don’t personally believe in. My body being “mine”....nope!

    I do it sometimes but as a self-harm behaviour. I find it triggering. Plus sometimes if I do it long enough it eventually numbs me and then I don't feel anything, which I don't feel happy but at least I sent feel awful either, its just like I'm not there, so sometimes I do it for that too.

    No, but not because of PTSD. I just think it's a terrible idea... even if you trust the person, who knows what that relationship is going to look like in 5 years.

    I have a tendency to sext when I am acting out. Sexual Reactivity is a behavior that I struggle with and as a result when I am not acting healthy I sext with random strangers.
