Dear Poll: Do Your Body Issues Follow You to Bed?

As most women know, one of the biggest inhibitors in the bedroom is the mind. It has a tendency to wander off and come up with nagging questions, like “is my stomach jiggling?” that can really turn a girl off. In fact, it can end up holding you back from a lot of pleasurable things. I know that I’ve had phases where the way I feel about my looks has had an effect on my attitude and mood when having sex but what about you? Do your body issues follow you to bed?

most of the time my body issues keep me out of bed completely for most of the time. But I am trying and making lots of effort to be better for my beau as he really does deserve it.

yup i was pretty self-conscious of my stomach, esp. since my last ex was a gym freak and i totally wasn't.

I'm glad everyone here is so self-confident! I, unfortunately, am often plagued by body issues in the bedroom. It's a major issue in my relationship right now.

It generally depends on the position and how Im feeling that day. Even when Ive had a guy tell me I look fine, being in that spot turned him on, whatever- if I feel fat Im not going to want to continue in that position and thats that.

I do... I have always had low self esteem.. something I need to work on. I don't let it get in the way but it does cross my mind.

It depends... if my legs aren't shaved, if I feel particularly dirty for any reason, or if I'm on my period & just feel bloated.. those are the kind of body issues that follow me into bed. As for a little extra tummy jiggle, I (or my bf) could care less. ;-)

I have come to learn that, most of the time, the things I don't like about my body are the things my boyfriend loves most. I can't fault that! ; )

i might think about it but it doesn't stop me lol if i'm having a self perceived fat day, then i just make sure the lights are out haha. i've never had a guy complain about my body, so why should i let it get me too worked up.

Where is the answer..I don't have any body issues. :? Anyway, I don't, and I would hope the same for everyone.

not that my body is perfect but i don't have many issues with myself anymore. i've come to learn that my body is my body and all i can really do is exercise and eat right--keep a balance in my life. besides, my guy thinks my body rocks and that's enough for me. he's always telling me and it's nice to hear. i can tell myself how much i love my body all i want but when the guy i'm head over heels for tells me such it's even better. more power. and THAT will get me even more in the mood.

it really depends. like when it's that time of the month and everything seems extra jiggly and bloated, then definitely.

Nope. I don't have body issues because I take care of myself and I look awesome. :) My fiance loves me just the way I am.

Sure. My body issue is that I think I'm sexy and beautiful, and it definitely follows me to bed. ;) ;)

I picked other. Though I don't have a boyfriend, I'm really proud of my body so I don't think this would inhibit me when it happens. (Did that sound cocky? I really don't mean to sound cocky :) )
