Need Advice / ResourcesSo I'm not actually a survivor, but my partner is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse. I am posting here in hopes that someone can lead me in the right direction in terms of how to be helpful / supportive / careful with someone who has gone through this sort of trauma, while still staying true to my needs within the relationship.
We've talked about it a lot. Basically we're both really scared of how to proceed, when the idea of sex is scary for her, and the whole thing is scary and overwhelming for me. I hope that I just need more information, so I can be a good partner and create a safe space for intimacy.
Please share your ideas with me. Thank you.
