I think I have a problem with sex. I become obsessed with it, especially when stressed. It has put strain on my past relationships and there was a period where I was single and had a quite a few one night stands which I regret. I've done so many risky things. At the time I would have said that I couldn't help it. It was like a compulsion. I even got VD from it once, from my last boyfriend. Thankfully I treated it and I've been symptom free for about a month now. The doctor said it wasn't likely to come back. So I guess I'm ready to have sex again! I haven't been with anyone on the regular in 9 months. The last time was just one night with my ex in September or October. This has been my longest stretch ever since I was 15 and started having it all the time. I have been so lonley. I hate sleeping alone. It has been one of the main factors in my depression to be sure. Dated a few people since the ex but couldn't get close to them because of my uh...condition. It took a lot of willpower to tell people about it and not just have sex with someone without saying anything. I totally could have but I was honest instead. I got turned down a couple times and gave up on the whole dating thing for a while. I guess it has been good because it made me realize how many people I've actually liked and how many I liked just for the sex. Sex was ruining my life! Don't get me wrong. I still think sex is probably the greatest thing ever. I'm just afraid that it might start being my top priority again. The lust I feel is overwhelming...but I know deep down that meaning lie elsewhere. I don't want to be like I was. What can I do to control myself?
