I have a question, ever since my rape a few years back I have a VERY high sex drive.. I was wondering if it was because of my age (20) or if im experiencing a high sex from the trauma. Has anyone else experienced this?

I had been sexually, mentally and physically abused my whole life. Then came the attempted rape. And still, no one cared. So, I was pressured into having sex. And because my BF just loved me so much (ya, loved having a virgin girl to control I now see) I thought sex was the way to experience joy in the world. I pretty much stayed highly sexual. I used it to my advantage to feel I was in control and to get far away from abuse. I used it to feel like I had love.

I am 20 and I was raped 5 years ago. Now I have a boyfriend that I love so much and I also high sex drive but not at first. At first I had problems being with him in a sexual way but after a long time I started feeling safe. Now I know I can be with someone that loves and cares about me without having trouble. I know I am in control because my boyfriend knows about what happen to me and I can say stop and he will. I feel like feeling safe with the person you are with helps a lot. That is why I feel like I have a high sex drive as well.
