“Want­ing sex again is new”

Glamour (South Africa) - - Glamour Sex -

“I’ve been with my boyfriend for 10 months, and we have sex about three times a week. I’m a sur­vivor of sex­ual vi­o­lence and my pre­vi­ous re­la­tion­ship didn’t in­volve a lot of sex, as I was still pro­cess­ing what had hap­pened to me. Both times I was raped were in the con­text of a re­la­tion­ship – the idea that it only hap­pens with a stranger in a dark al­ley is rub­bish. It meant that I had a very low sex drive for a long time, so want­ing sex again is re­ally new for me.” – HAR­RIET, 23, in a re­la­tion­ship
