Question

I have had many past sexual abuse experiences. The experiences mostly happened as a child. Through prayer, counseling (current and past), and seeking God's word, I have overcome many barriers to enjoying and loving a sexual relationship with my husband. A nagging doubt I have is how MUCH I enjoy this relationship with my husband. I find myself day-dreaming of our sexual moments together, especially if it has been awhile since we have been together. I feel like this level of enjoyment at some level is healthy but there is a nagging doubt that, because of my past, I am over-sexualized and creating an unhealthy sexual relationship with my husband by my level of enjoyment and desire. Is this an attack from the enemy on me, my healing, and my marriage or is it a dysfunction from my past that needs to be addressed?

Question

I was molested when I was 16 and have to deal with the memories and trust issues that come with the territory for quite some time now. I've heard all sorts of issues come up with people who have been molested in the past. Some I've had to deal with others really didn't bother me. Could wanting sex constantly from my husband be a side effect of being molested?

Question

I was molested as a young girl and raised without a father which led to a treacherous walk apart from the Lord where I attempted to gain acceptance and love through promiscuity. After repentance and working through past issues over the last several years, I've met a wonderful Christian man who I believe the Lord is calling me to marry. He has not sinned sexually as I have and although he is accepting of my past, I can't help thinking this will affect our marriage. He and I have saved our first kiss for the wedding night but I am fearful I will not desire him since for so many years my sexuality was surrounded with guilt and shame. What can I do to help prepare for a holy and fruitful marriage in this area?

Question

Although I am a woman, I struggled off and on for a period of time with viewing pornography. For me, I was curious because sex wasn’t talked about in my home and pornography presented a different image of sexuality than the one I had been taught. I didn’t know women were supposed to enjoy sex. I felt like I couldn’t talk to anyone about my struggle, because of intense shame and because women weren’t supposed to find pornography stimulating. By God’s grace, I repented, turned from my sin, confessed to another believer, and have been living in victory. I can honestly say that I don’t rehearse the images in my mind and never think of what I’ve seen. But now I’m dating a guy and I recently told him about my past. So far, he has not been
