Rough sex dating
In the survey, women who had been sexually abused were more likely than those who had not been abused to be more sexually experienced and more willing to engage in casual sex, according to Cindy Meston, Ph D, a survey co-author and an assistant professor of psychology at the University of Texas.
(This was not the case for men.) Such behavior could stem from an unhealthy sexual self-image, she says.
Marcus said the memories made it difficult for the patient to continue having sex with her husband, and although she underwent therapy, the marriage ultimately ended in divorce.
She admits she is more comfortable with casual flings, partly because the closer she gets to a man emotionally, the less she wants to have sex with him.
When those abused as children try to form adult romantic relationships, they can be affected by anxiety, depression, and poor self-esteem.
