Pulling away from his kiss, I sat there on my bed — awkward, nervous — just waiting to be rejected. I flinched when he lifted up my shirt, bracing myself for a stifled laugh or a look of disgust. I got neither. His eyes blazed as he placed his hands around my waist and he whispered, "You’re beautiful."

  Sexually Depressed

Hating my body was such an easy thing to do. There weren't many girls at my high school who were overweight; envying their bodies and hating my own seemed so much simpler than the whole diet and exercise routine, especially because it never seemed to work. But there was just a tiny problem: I wanted sex. I wanted it bad. From a young age, I realized I was a very sexual person, but unfortunately I had no means by which to fully explore it. I tried to masturbate my troubles away, but I was never really satisfied. Solo just wasn't cutting it, and ensuring that the opposite sex wouldn't go near me wasn't helping matters.

What can you do when you want sex but you're too afraid to let someone see you naked? I spent six years trying to figure out the answer to that question and got nowhere. Don't ask this question and hopelessly ponder over it like I did. Don't slump into a sexual depression. Instead, let go of your inhibitions.

  Break Down the Door

I know, I know. Easier said than done, right? Well, you don't have to find a way to stop hating your body. Though that is something that you should definitely consider attempting, it takes an incredible amount of self-discipline, self-respect and time. In fact, I'm still not all that happy with how I look, but that isn't the point. The point is to find someone who thinks you're beautiful — with your clothes on. When you do that, I guarantee that when you invite them into your bedroom, they're not going to care if you have muffin tops or that your thighs rub together a little. Don't let the little voice in your head tell you otherwise.

Your body is not ugly and, believe it or not, you are the only one who thinks so. If you choose to ignore someone who is interested in you because you're insecure with your body, you might be losing out on a potentially great relationship. So don't be afraid to let someone into your life — and into your bed.
