Deep Dive on Sex as Self-Harm and "Survival Sex" in Trauma Recovery

​​💡 Questions answered in this episode:

  • Compulsive sexual behavior & hyper-sexuality,
  • The connection between personality disorders and compulsive sexual activity
  • Sexual masochism / Sex as Self-Harm (and its many forms)
  • The traumatic roots of BPD
  • The dangers of sex work when we've not fully healed our own trauma (sugar daddies, OnlyFans, prostitution, etc.)
