Trauma Facts: Did You Know?
A deeply disturbing or distressing event that can cause lasting psychological effects, which is known as post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). A traumatic experience related to sex and relationships — whether it’s caused by an abusive relationship, a bad date, a sexual assault, or something else — can make it hard for the survivor to enjoy future sex and intimacy.
