I (43M) have actually remained in what I take into consideration to be a terrific partnership with my gf (38F) for around 6 months. My background matters: left a mentally violent partnership (involved) which was likewise a dreadful sex-related inequality. My ex-spouse slammed a great deal regarding me, as well as was ruthless regarding her frustration with our sex life, as well as contrasted me to her previous experiences to make me really feel horrible.
My existing companion and also I are extremely suitable because location, and also she’s not the type of individual that would certainly EVER do that. However she does periodically go down referrals to her previous experience. Just recently she made a statement along the lines “a lot of men resemble power devices” in the sack, indicating harsh and also powerful. I am not by doing this and also she plainly favors that.
I can not aid it however these statements make me deeply awkward. They invoke pictures in my head, as well as obviously advise me of my ex-spouse. I believe they likewise stimulate sensations of insufficiency due to the fact that I’m not a “power device” as well as do not wish to be, yet there is that picture in our society (aided along by pornography).
My inquiry is, do I chalk this approximately my very own level of sensitivity, or do I state something to her regarding it?
