She read that if it is positive the urine stays foamy and hers did for about 20 min. (13 days past ovaluation) I feel concerned for her. We have never had sex or even mentioned it. So I am wondering...

I’m Afraid of Having Sex with Men

From Canada: I’m bisexual, and although I’m attracted to both women and men I’m completely terrified of having penetrative sex with men. I think that this problem stems from my childhood sexual abuse, but I can’t be sure. Is there any way I can overcome this problem? I don’t want to exclude myself to just dating women due to my fear of sex with men. A. I’m very glad you wrote. Healthy choice of...

Hurting Myself for Pleasure

Hey there. I’m a teenage girl with an eating disorder and self-harm issues. At first I decided to cut myself because I was upset but now I do it because I enjoy the pain. Recently I’ve been exploring bdsm and I’ve realised that I’m a masochist. I’m single and only just past the legal age of consent, so I don’t have anyone to hurt me as I would like them to. I’ve been hurting...

Strange Fantasies

From the : I have, every night, thought about being raped or kidnapped. I’m beginning to think that this is a problem. I currently see a doctor for my manic-depressive bipolar disorder, but am currently un-medicated. I am nervous to tell him about it. It’s so much of an issue that I would rather think of these things than to have relations with my husband, who has no idea. I just wanted to know...

I Think I Have Pedophilic Attractions

Ok this happened about a year ago. I am 18 years old and a male and recently started getting attractions for little girls between the ages of 5-10 years old.

I then began to think how cute the little girl was on the show and began thinking thoughts of how...

Emotional Affairs

I’ve been married for five years. In that time, my wife has had what I consider two text message emotional affairs with men. I know physical cheating has not happened and am pretty sure she’d not act out the texting fantasies. But the communication with the men is very sexually graphic. She’s also received sexually explicit pictures and videos from at least one of the men. I’ve tried to communicate with my wife explaining...

Am I a Pedophile!!!!!???

From Australia: I am a 14 year old boy and found a grade 5 (10 years old) girl attractive. Does that mean that I am a pedophile? I feel very guilty because I think I’m a pedophile. Please help! A: It’s highly unlikely that you are a pedophile. Pedophiles have a pattern of intense, recurring sexual interest in young children and often don’t see anything wrong with that interest. You, on the other hand,...
