How come adults who were sexually abused as children sometimes have trouble with intercourse?

Difficult issue: The core of this issue often represents a destruction of the primary trust response in early childhood.Since most involve trusted adults or close family members, a kid can grow up not knowing who of if to trust, including their intimate partners, or sexual activity sends them back in time to the abuse. Therapy can help this process.Those who avoid therapy carry a heavy burden.
