Tracey, this story is kind of horrifying. I don’t say that to mean anything negative about you or about your writing the story. I think you should have! But …

Your story is about having been raped. Anal sex without consent or proper cooperation is awful. The pain is intense and horrifying. The damage of having been violated like that is intense.

I’m so sorry that happened to you. I hope you’re OK.
