Customer Question

I have been wondering lately if I'm gay or bisexual. I find it weird and annoying these things pop into my head all the time I have what they call severe OCD, personality disorder, and depression-anxiety. I was hospitalized for sexual themed old 5 times.....I was terrified I was going to become a pedophile, gay, and a transgender. I can't determine what my sexuality is anymore.......I do know I still have love for women, but why does gay images pop into my mind. I don't want to be a pervert but it is hard to get a straight answer when I'm not. When I look at pornography I need the perfect women and penis type a little bit larger...what does this mean. I have reactions to gay porn, but usually only with very musical handsome men. I find as if maybe I'm comparing myself to them, or something. I don't find anal sex all that attractive, and the thought of kissing another man or cuddling with him....seems little odd. What the hell does this mean. I know(I think) I like women but I'm so f**king conflicted with thoughts i don't know where to start. I was sexually molested as a child.........this has to be where all these twisted f**k up thoughts come from. What is wrong with me? Why am I such a f**king freak show? Please don't judge me...I know I'm f**king odd.

Hello- I am so glad you reached out! Fortunately for most people, normal human sexuality has a very wide range. However, your OCD may be making you doubt yourself in this regard. In other words, you may be obsessing on sexuality details that need not be such a point of focus. What is it that is really worrying you the most? Let's look at that to begin. Thanks, ***** *****
