I am not in the mood for sex since my ...

Hi. I have been with my boyfriend for almost 7 years now. We are both 21 years old. I had my daughter almost 3 and 1/2 years ago. Our sex life was great before that, then my boyfriend had sex with another girl behind my back over several months. I know he is truly sorry for what he has done. It is painful for me to have intercourse and it seems like I am never in the mood. The affair took place 3 years ago. we are finding it very hard to get back on track with this problem. I never feel in the mood for sex and seem to carry on without it fine. However I know at 21 I should not feel this way. I just wondered if you had any advice for me. Many thanks.



I came out as bisexual to my parents last summer ...

Hello. I came out as bisexual to my parents last summer and am still having trouble with it. My mom (who is very conservative) actually said: "I still love you as my daughter, but I don't accept this" when I recently asked her about it. She also keeps threatening to tell my sister and if she does I'll be in for some REAL abuse, because my sister's very homophobic and believes most stereotypes about GLBT people, no matter what I say to try and teach her. I asked my dad for help since he's pretty accepting of my sexuality, but he hasn't been too successful. Any ideas?



Story – Accepting me for who I am

I never really thought about it as a child. In fact, my parents kept me away from the real world. I didn't find out a lot of things until I was in grade 4 and some of the older grade girls would tell me about stuff. I never even gave a thought to the gay community until I was in grade 8.


Was it right to explain to my kid that me ...

I just came out of the closet a couple of month's back.I have two boy's there seven and six, now the seven year old is the articulate one it's like he's been here before; I recently got into a relationship with my best friend of five year's but for my son's they know her as their aunt. So naturally, I had to explain to him that we are a couple now some people think that I shouldn't have went there but;I figure he is a new aged child he'll pick up if I don't explain to him. Did I do the right thing or was I wrong should I have waited until he was old enough to under stand?


What exactly is bisexual ?

What exactly is bisexual? I'm the Mom of a 15 yr old girl who has just informed me that she is bisexual. The problem is I don't think she understands all the implications of that label. She has always walked "to the beat of a different drumer" -always trying to fit in. She started high school this year and I think she has finally found a group that will accept her and she is identifying with them. She has always seemed attracted to guys but says that was all an act to hide her true feelings from me. I'm confused as a parent. I want to support her but I'm afraid for her too. I have asked her to take it slow and make sure this is truly her choice of sexuality. Her father and I will accept her no matter what - we just want her to be sure that she's not just 'labeling' herself to fit in. Am I hurting her psychologically by asking her to question her choice before making commitments? Right now she has a bf who is also bisexual.

Having a Trans Child – Advice to Parents

My daughter is trans - she transitioned in her late teens. This is a very brief resume of some of the stresses and practical problems facing a family with such a child, who may still be at school or college, and is probably still living at home.
