QI’ve been with my boyfriend for five years and the sex is great. But since I’ve recently gone on the Pill, we’ve stopped using condoms, and it grosses me out how messy sex is now! I always need to shower straight after.
I couldn’t imagine just going to sleep, or getting on with my day. Am I weird? How can
I get over this? Cerys, 23
ANo, flower, you’re not weird! It’s just a new experience for you. If you feel you need to shower after, then do it. It’s hygienic to have a nice wash. And maybe you could have a shower together?
Unfortunately, a bit of mess is part and parcel of having sex, though, and I’m sure you’ll get used to it in time.
