Childhood sexual abuse a possibility...
by: Darlene Barriere - Webmaster

Kilee, it is possible that you have been sexually abused as a child and have no memory of it, but there is no way for me to know for sure.

I have replied in-depth to others who have asked this question in various forms. I refer you to the following URLs on this site; each URL houses the question, some details, and my response:Even if you weren't sexually abused as a child, there is an underlying cause for your inability to have an intimate relationship with your husband. As I suggested to each of the above contributors, I urge you to seek out some form of counselling in order to help you understand one: why you are experiencing this inability; and two, how you can overcome the underlying cause so that you and your husband can experience and enjoy intimacy in your relationship.

I wish you and your husband all the best, Kilee.
