Dear Emily,

So my issue is I am afraid of sex!
 
I was raised to believe that sex before marriage is a TERRIBLE sin, and I’m stuck with associating sex, in general, with feelings of shame and guilt. 
 
I don’t even want to think about marriage until I’m at least 25, which seems way too old to still be a virgin! I’m worried that when I actually get serious with a guy I won’t be able to get over these feelings of shame and fear. Please help!
 
Sincerely, 
Lucy

Yes, there was a little shame in the 15 seconds after planting my flag at the summit, but by and large I felt entitled to this pursuit in the same way many feel about firearms and pedestrian right-of-ways. “I’m doing this and it’s gonna get done. Try and stop me.” Continue Reading
