I have a fear of physical contact. Let me clarify this before you think the wrong thing: I’m cool with hugs, taps on shoulders, linking arms, etc. (all the normal human things) but I have a super intense fear of anything physical that is related to anything sexual. I’m scared of my first kiss, someone grabbing my butt, actual sex, etc. I’m only seventeen and haven’t gone through anything that would give me such horrible anxiety about this sort of thing so it doesn’t make sense to me. I’ve had nightmares about getting touched, and it freaks me out a lot. I don’t know what’s going on. I have a crush on a guy who likes me back and everything’s all peachy-keen when it comes to guys so that isn’t a contributor. It’s not a super awful problem seeing as I don’t plan on even kissing a guy anytime soon but it’s bothering me.
You don’t have to have a sexual relationship, if you’re uncomfortable with it.. also, if you’re willing to go talk to a therapist, they might be able to help you overdoing it, or at the very least understand it..
