From a Boyfriend

I was only 15 at the time, he was my first ‘serious’ boyfriend. He always spoke to me about sex and this made me uncomfortable as I was not ready. I had clarified this to him and told him I didn’t want to. We were round his house watching a film and just enjoying each others company.

He started to undo my jeans and I thought he was just messing around so didn’t think much of it. He started trying to penetrate me with his fingers.

I told him to stop. I told him it hurt. I told him I didn’t want him to.

He ignored me and continued to do it.
I excused myself after and went to the bathroom. I was bleeding and in pain and I just wanted to cry.

I stayed with him, he later ended it with me because I wouldn’t have sex with him.

At the time I thought I was silly for caring about it as he was my boyfriend. However, I now realize 2 years on that this was sexual assault, even if I was in a relationship with him.

I watched this documentary on Netflix and hearing about the website where other victims can share their stories made me finally feel like I could speak about this.
