Sex *GASP* Did I Really Just Say That?
For many people, sex is an uncomfortable topic––especially as it relates to bipolar hypersexuality. But that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t talk about it.
Now that I’ve got everyone’s attention … I’m going to breech the subject that makes me incredibly uncomfortable!
We all know hypersexuality is a symptom of bipolar disorder, but it’s also a symptom that is a bit foreign to me.
Or is it?
Being raised in a strict Catholic family, I am somewhat shy about this subject. I’m not faulting my parents (I love you Mom and Dad! … and also hope you aren’t reading this …). They did a wonderful job raising me. It just is what it is. I’m embarrassed by sex.
*GASP* I just said it again!
So after writing a scene for my newest book and blushing and feeling all uncomfortable about it I kinda wondered to myself, “Is this hypersexuality concept really that foreign to me, or am I just too shy/ashamed/embarrassed/prude/intimidated/worried to say and/or possibly admit it’s happened to me as well?
I’ll plead the fifth on that one, but at the same time ask you this …
Have you ever experienced hypersexuality? If your answer is no, are you in denial just as I may or may not possibly be?
And why do we always hesitate to breach this subject so often? (Or is that just me too!)
