I don't know that I have the answer to your question. However, it did speak to me. I find myself in the same situation often. I cannot watch anything with nudity or sex, as it kills me inside and brings back haunting memories of things that I have been through. My boyfriend is also very understanding. Still, it seems impossible that I will ever be okay with it. You never realize how much nudity is in stuff until you cut it out from your life, and watching ANYTHING seems impossible. Maybe we can be friends?

Make the most out of non-sex stuff like holding hands, kissing, rubbing feet. This is sort of out in left field but do you feel better with clothing on? You can build your trust up, deep breathe too! I wish you the best. At least you know you are not alone.

You have a great boyfriend...sounds like a keeper. Try seeing a therapist along with your boyfriend. Talking about it will make you two closer and more comfortable with each other. Take it slow and easy.....you have to be friends before being lovers.....
