I hate myself for having sex with household appliances


DEAR DEIDRE: I HATE having sex with household appliances.

I know it sounds strange, but I needed to know what it looked like.


Since then I have been riddled with guilt and disgust

I had seen these crazy people online having sex with household items, like electric toothbrushes and their washing machines.

My friends were all laughing at these videos but my curiosity got the better of it, so I ended up trying different devices.

But since then, I have been plagued with guilt and disgust.

Others don’t do that sort of thing. What the hell would my friends say if they knew?

Every problem receives a personal response, usually within 24 hours on weekdays.

My anxiety and guilt have grown so strong that I am now on antidepressants. I also drink more than I should.

But that’s the only way to stifle the throbbing voice in my head, telling me that I have something wrong with me. I’m 26 years old.

DEIDRE SAYS: Rather than dwelling on the past, it would be better to try to accept what happened and move on.

Be kind to yourself – you haven’t hurt anyone or done anything illegal.

It’s also a private matter, so no one else needs to know about it.

I’m sending you my anxiety and guilt support packs, but it might also help you talking to your GP about how you are feeling.

They may be able to offer you cognitive behavioral therapy, which will teach you how to cope when your anxiety arises.
