Sexuality is mysterious thing. Even more mysterious than the ecology deep in the oceans. People intertwine their faith, their pain, their racism, their homophobia, and more into their sexuality. And this creates both a disturbing and wonderful spectrum of beauty and desires. I can give a couple of examples (some are rather controversial, I'll save those opinions for later) While I was working at another job, I was training my co-worker for a few days. She was an older single mother and quite pleasant. during our down time we shared personal stories. We began to talk about her family and her daughter's dysfunctional relationships. We were talking about the issue of rape and she shared that her daughter had been raped at 15 years old. And the rape produced a child. Ever since that incident, she told me that her relationships and her sex life has been unstable. She would dump and reconcile with her boyfriends frequently. When mother and daughter had those personal talks, the daughter told her how she liked really rough sex. Now did the abuse affect her sexuality? I don't know, I can't accurately say. I do know that it would be wrong to say that all rape victims act like this. How has your past, your activities, your faith, your morals, your shame, and your fears shaped your sexuality?
