    Thank you for opening up about this @ellie2000 <3

    You're certainly right, after experiencing really painful trauma it is quite common for people to feel 'hypersexual' or like they need to connect through re-enacting the trauma they experienced. So, in your case, it could be that you feel like it's easier to talk to someone in a way that mirrors the way you were treated.

    I think it could be helpful to explore this more and it being brought up could be a good thing because you could try to understand where this is coming from?

    Here is an article that can explain what I am saying better and in more detail:

    Do you feel able to talk about it more? xx

    Huge hugs <3
