Aww, sugar...
Sexual stimulation is sexual stimulation, and thus it usually feels good, and you can't help it at all.

Your mind knowing it's wrong can't necessarily stop your body from liking it. It's instinct.

And it's also quite possible that, at the time, you didn't know it was wrong, so nothing would have mattered other than the fact that it felt good.

Don't be guilty. You can't control something like that.

it's not your fault, and there's not anything wrong with liking it, you can't help what you like and don't. at eight you probably couldnt have understood it. :hug:
just, if you like it, dont torment yourself because you do, try to accept it and think that you're lucky you didnt hate it, because then it would have been worse..

If someone doesn't hurt you through sex, it doesn't matter how old you are, in some way you enjoy it.

...or think you do. That's probably the hardest thing. You think you're a whore because you're not sure if you liked it or not and people's reasurrances that you'r not often don't help do they..?

If I could in any way shape or form help, I would. My email is Feel free to throw me a line if you want to, but tis fine if you don't *shrugs*

Hmm, I'm not sure how to comment on this one..
Its something you need to get help with though. Just submitting a secret on DA isn't good enough in this case. But I guess if you are happy with yourself and your life. I guess its ok.. Hmm.
But for this to happen at such a young age, I think its more you may have been told many times that it was a good thing and that you enjoy it. ( even if you didn't) so your brain thinks that. Your brain is such a powerful tool. I truly do think you need to seek help though. Some real help.

Good luck to you :hug:

People say at eight you don't know what sex is. I knew. Children are a lot more sexually driven than people care to admit - it's dangerous because they are naive, they don't understand taboos or what sex is - children are mostly driven by instinct.

So a child with few fears, few hang ups will think thus - pain, bad. pleasure, good. If they don't understand sex fully, it can just be something else that is nice - which is why some paedophiles are so successful. The children just don't realise they're being violated until they are older and hear what people say about the issue.

I was sexually abused at two. It hurt, it was definitely bad. I was still obsessed by sex, dangerously so, all through my childhood. I still feel guilt for that.

Find a counsellor. If you are in the UK please note me I know of some fabulous charities that help victims. I won't judge - I've been there.

I knew all about sex at that age too.
Ive known all about sex since before I was old enoug to talk. Im a country girl you see animals haveing sex having babys al the time . So I gotta agree with you on the just because someone is eight doesnt mean then know what sex is.

That happens a lot more than people talk about. Especially in children who actually DO understand whats going on. If it is something that bothers you now, you should find a way to talk to someone... If not, go on with your life.

It is not as uncommon as people think for children to understand sex, what it is, and all that goes along with it. Believe me... and it doesn't always involved molestation or abuse either.
