“Stacey!” Jesse moaned into my ear as I ripped through my second orgasm. My whole body shook through it; my mouth opened wide. I was shocked by how this felt, I had never been this consumed in missionary position.
But then something seemed to change. I was so high that I just couldn’t really focus. My eyes blurred and as he thrust inside me harder. With every hard thrust, I became just a little more scared. I started to shake and my legs instinctively closed. My breathing became shallow and quick just as Jesse started to slow down.
“Stacey? Is it too hard?”
This is Jesse. This is not Mike raping you. You want this. You want him inside you.
“A little. Can we slow down?” I didn’t want to tell him that hard sex reminded me of my rape.
“Of course I can,” he whispered.
His strong hands came down to my legs, which he slowly stroked with his fingers. With that soft touch, my legs opened up bit by bit, welcoming him inside. He rocked inside me more gently than I could have asked for. And with every tender thrust that wasn’t accompanied by anything hard, fast, or violent, I reminded myself where I was. I was in the arms of a protector, not a monster.
