Can a lack of trust affect the ability to have sex?

I'm currently dating my boyfriend and things are going really well. We talk regularly, hang out, and do most things couples do... except for have sex. It's not like be both don't want to have sex, but I've had some bad previous experiences (both non-sexual and sexual related) that made me question how much I could trust people, like my family, friends, and past partners. I told him this, and he was very understanding of my circumstances, but I feel bad that I can't convey those types of romantic feelings back for him because other people in my life ruined it for me. How can I get over these feelings of mistrust and show him how I really feel for him? Any advice is appreciated!
