Its Getting Bad...

This has become a pretty serious problem. Its all I think about-being touched by someone. I'm not talking about sex, I'm talking about someone just touching me.
Its interfering with my school life, because I can't concentrate. I space out talking to people.
Will I get therapy to find out why I have this little issue? No. I don't want to find out why this happens.
I guess the fact that I've been rejected so many times in my life makes me want it more. The rejection, mostly, happened when I was really little. People just didn't want to be near me. I get it, kids are kinda gross, but, literally, everyone wanted to stay away from me.
I really hope it goes away, soon.

Your Response


Believe me you're not alone or unnatural! At your age it's very normal to think about sex and intimacy. Sometimes though if it becomes such an issue that it's interfering with other areas of your life, then it probably does mean that you're responding and feeling like this as a reaction to something else in your life. So without being consciously aware of it, there may be rejection issues or some other thing that has affected you, and your desire for sex is greater because of it. If this is the case, you will need to get some help & support. I understand it's an embarrassing issue, particularly at your age, but whoever you talk with will have heard it all before. Like i said, you're not alone or strange or different. And sometimes we can get a counsellor that isn't right for us...who just doesn't "click", so you may need to try a few different ones before you find the right one. but if this is becoming a problem, plz don't just put up with it. Get some support. Otherwise, accept it as a normal and healthy part of growing up and try other ways to relieve the need. (self touch?) Good luck and don't give yourself a hard time. ;-)

Well, here's the thing: it isn't sex. Sex, to me, is fairly meaningless. My problem is my obsession with things like hugging, people touching my shoulder, people patting my back, and so on. Sex, for me, is not as intimate as any of those things
