    That sounds like a really complex situation to be in @ellie2000 :( Firstly, I want you to know that having a fantasy like that does not make you a bad person in anyway, and it is all the more understandable when we think of the things that have happened to you in the past.

    Secondly, being brave enough to come online to discuss your worries about this is amazing and really important to show others that they are not alone.

    Finally, it may be helpful to try to think about what makes you want to ask that question of your friend? I know it can be a tough one to answer, but working out what your emotions are when you ask something like that can be useful. Here, if you'd like to talk some more about that <3

    Hi @ellie2000 how are you today? Sexual assault is never okay, if a person has feelings for someone else they should always ask for consent. I don't know the reason why people assault others and I'm not sure if anyone really does, it's just important to remember that assault under any circumstances isn't okay.

    I'm also hearing that you wish you felt how you did when you were happy. What made you feel happy before? is there anything you can do know to make you feel like that again?
    The steps you take don't have to be big, they just need to take you in the right direction.

    I think that this is very brave of you to share this. It's definetly a hard thing to go through. I understand those feelings as I'm personally trying to learn how to not feel them. As a person who was exposed to sex at a very young age it became hard for me to enjoy it without being hurt during it as a self proclaimed form of penance for the guilt I felt. But sex should be enjoyable not just through pain. There are safe ways to engage in that type of sex (bdsm) just as long as you and your partner are clear on how you feel about it. I would encourage you to find happiness through hobbies not just through sex, because while it is great our bodies even slow down on how much we want it.

    Thank you for asking so many insightful questions @ellie2000 <3 After experiencing such an immense trauma, it's no wonder you'd start to question a lot of things in your life, like why do people sexually assault others, and why are your emotional responses so complex and confusing. Trying to work this all out is extremely brave! Nevertheless, i know doing this alone can be a real challenge, especially when you hear conflicting information from different people.

    Firstly, wanting your emotions to be similar to what you went through at the time of the assault is completely understandable, and not strange at all. It is important to remember that no two people who have experienced assault will react the same way, and people can cope, emotionally, in vastly different ways. Sometimes, feeling 'destroyed' again helps people to feel in control over their own lives after losing it so horribly through the trauma. This can be what leads some people to be hyper-sexual and reflect upon this as partially being motivated by wanting to regain control in their lives.

    Secondly, there definitely seems to be some generational differences in how consent is perceived, especially in terms of what makes someone 'old enough' to have sex with. Some people firmly believe that 18 might be the legal age, yet we should not have huge age gaps with such young people. I think a lot of it is about vulnerability and how much power each person has in a relationship, often an 18-year old does not have the same power as a 30 year-old. What are your thoughts on ages of consent? <3

    Finally, there are so many different reasons why perpetrators say they sexually assaulted someone, ranging from blaming answers like "she wanted it" to "I thought it was consensual". The bottom line is, sexual harm and violence are wrong no matter the perspective of the perpetrator. Many people say they do not know they have caused harm until they are confronted with it, but if a person is left traumatised by their actions, their intent is hardly relevant. Wanting to understand the rationale of a rapist is completely understandable, Ellie, so long as you remember that no answer of theirs is an excuse for the hurt they have caused <3

    This article gives a lot of insight into the types of questions you are asking, and also gives advice on how to cope after experiencing this kind of trauma:
