(Cut in case inappropriate due to sexual nature)
I was wondering the connection, if any, between eating disorders and sexual promiscuity. Ever since my eating disorder developed at the age of 14, I have been very promiscuous. That year I started having sex even in school, although not intercourse at first. After this things sort of took off-i got a job, met even more guys/men, and started having sex behind the dumpster at the fast food joint i worked at, in cars, in the parking lot, etc. I would like to say that sex fed me somehow, but I don't know if that's it, even. I enjoy it, but i've never had an orgasm from a partner. Lately I've been thinking that I just enjoy the intimacy, the closeness, of it, and not so much the pleasure itself. I want to feel loved and needed, and I think that ties into my eating disorder as well. But I know some people with eating disorders are very abstinent and possibly even afraid of sex, so I was just wondering about the rest of you guys. Do you feel your (lack of) sexual activity is related to your eating disorder?
