Oh dear man, please don't be so hard on yourself. First of all in our culture we have made having sex something to base our self esteem on. Have you had any intimacy such as kissing and hugging? Can you tell me more about why you may have not been physically involved with a women? do you have an anxiety disorder? health issues? religious beliefs, etc.? the more you can share with me the easier it will be for me to help and make some recommendations. I look forward to hearing from you, Sincerely, ***** ***** LMSW, CASAC
