Sex is a difficult act made more complex when trying to engage while struggling with OCD! Making love and intimacy goes from an enjoyable experience to an event filled with triggers. You obsess over what your partner is thinking, have intrusive thoughts about sexually harming your mate, contamination fears over bodily fluids, not being able to perform because of sexual side effects from OCD medication, as well as obsessing over getting STD's or becoming pregnant. This panel and engaging audience discussion will address these concerns and more. So come in and join the discussion on sex and OCD!
