This was sure to prove illuminating:
I'm a 27-year-old male virgin, with a history of self-harm. I started harming myself during a difficult childhood and have since resolved those issues, but have always struggled to develop any form of intimate relationship.OK, well, the same questions present themselves as at the 'Sun'. Namely, is this a real letter, one made up by the staff, or is it actually one of the staff...?
My concerns about being inexperienced in bed are worsened by the fact my body is covered in a large number of scars, and I have difficulties in knowing how to approach either of those issues with any of the women I've dated.Simple! Tell 'em you're a lion tamer/member of Special Forces/on the run from an underground experimental laboratory*. I mean, if they are fellow 'Guardian' readers, it's plain they'll swallow anything...
Blimey! This stuff is easy!
