Am I Suffering From Sexual Repression Quiz
Sexual repression is when a person has a difficult time expressing their sexual interests and/or sexuality. For some people, it just might be that you are shy, and it is hard for you to open up about such personal topics, but for others, it may truly be a feeling of emotional vulnerability that is followed by anxiety at the thought of sharing your thoughts and feelings. Sexual thoughts should trigger feelings of desire and excitement that lead to arousal, but if you are suffering from sexual repression, even the thought of sex could spark feelings of shame and negative self-talk. These deeply rooted negative feelings could be a result of so many different things, but you should feel good about sex and making your own sexual choices instead of feeling controlled by the negative thoughts in your mind.
