Def agree with the dude that says that your sexual partner should care about your climax. As a rule. If you don't want the other person to make you cum, seems like the exception. So, the assumption should be that you also want to cum. I am a straight woman btw. I do not think you have to demand a person to give you pleasure. That is a turn off. Don't care about gender or orientation. They should want to make you cum. I absolutely agree with the guy on this.

I'm glad you released the intro. when you were describing you're overall depression and hesitance, confusion about the current covid issues, it felt like we were literally the same person. what you're going through is exactly how I feel.
