Last summer, in Relationship Questions, Notlott37 asked: How would you know if a man sought you out for sex because you had low self-esteem? The responses were pretty much the same -- the woman with confidence doesn't give herself to men so easily (and men always want sex). 

 

Anonymous wrote: "The person with the low-self esteem carries themselves differently than a woman with high self-esteem. Women with high self esteem walk and talk with confidence, they have standards (moral and physical), they do not fear rejection." Studies have even shown that women with low self-esteem are more likely to engage in risky sexual behaviors compared to women with high self-esteem, while in men it's just the opposite.

 

Does self-esteem affect your sex life? How?
