I hate sex.

There are so many of us with these stories! I know that sex is supposed to be this awesome hobby or pastime but that has never been my experience.

I merely tolerated sex in my 20s. I didn’t hate it but I didn’t love it either. I remember it making me feel vaguely nauseous. I could never figure out what all the fuss was about. Then for a hot 10 minutes in my 30s I craved sex like it was going out of style. After that though, just nothing. It has become an academic concept to me at this point.

I share your experience of never climaxing with a partner. I however have a unique brain defect that manifests in me only being able to have orgasms in my sleep. They used to wake me up sometimes. So far I have met no one else with this unusual predisposition, but I have read about others online. Is someone on here a therapist? Unpack that special limitation for me, please!

Life is odd, isn’t it? I need to publish the story I wrote on this theme. Maybe it will get people talking and feeling a bit more comfortable with their own peculiar circumstances.

Like what you read? Give Charlotte Franklin a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
