Key Points From Article #7

  • Triggers are things that cause you to start down a path toward being sexually aroused.

    Discuss:
    • How can you relate to Heidi’s triggers? What other triggers do you experience?
       
  • Knowing your triggers allows you to set good boundaries, which will give you the opportunity to develop healthy relationships.

    Discuss:
    • What boundaries can you set in place to guard against each of your triggers?
       
  • Experiencing sexual desire in a healthy way requires knowing your triggers so you can be proactive about avoiding them. Reaching out to trusted friends for support when you’re triggered is also healthy.

    Discuss:
    • How have you experienced feeling out of control — like you can’t stop — once you’ve been triggered?

Next Steps — Read through these together.

  • Think of two or three people you could text or call for support when you feel triggered or when your sexual desire is taking over.
  • Try talking to them this week about whether they would be willing to support you in this way.
  • Share your progress with whomever you are discussing the Desire series with.
  • Mark a date on your calendar to discuss another article from the Desire series.
