when i was young and living with my parents i was catholic. it completely affected my sexuality... prolonging engaging in activity, adding tremendous feelings of guilt.. and made it so much worse when my highschool fiance dumped me after taking my virginity. i thought i was ruined, worthless in god's eyes.
after moving out i started seeing the world for my own and left behind the religious notions that no longer held up in the real world for me.
i still find that little girl in me feeling guilty for having sex and having sexual desires. she's a total buzzkill. a guilt tripper. having that pushed upon me for 18 years hasnt completely gone away.
