This is a comment by Archy on the post “Withholding Sex is Not a Joke“.
“Withholding sex as a weapon IS abuse. Not wanting to have sex because you’re angry is okay, but using it to control your partner is abusive. Dishing it out as a reward and denying it at other times when the person doesn’t behave how you want them to be is not love …
“I’ve seen and heard the effects of lack of any kind of intimacy to know how it can be used as a weapon, it’s great to see people talking about it because it’s one of the types of abuse that is rarely mentioned.”
