    Hate It

    It's due to my Cymbalta and partially my birth control, which is ****** up. It's like, give me this med so I can have sex, but I'm not going to want to? That's bullshit. I know it drives my boyfriend crazy and I hate it so much. He disagrees but I know that it will be...

    Broken Nature

    I hardly feel desire for sex anymore. I used to think about it 24/7 when I was young. As an adolescent, I would see an older woman whom I had no chance with and want her a lot. I remember when I was 14 I visited where I would be going to High School, and I saw this woman wearing...

    I was on Depo Provera for about a year and it totally shot my sex life to hell.  I wanted to in my head but just couldn't get my body to respond.  My boyfriend has a high sex drive and he did his best to understand but it was so difficult for both of us.  It was...

    This Doesn't Bother Me

    I've had a low sex drive for most of my adult years -- and it's freeing, it's liberating! I like my life, except of course I don't have a long-term relationship with a man now, and I miss that, of course -- but I'm sure there are a lot of men out there who also have low sex...

    24 Y/O And Don't Know What To Do With Myself Anymore.

    I'm still a virgin because I've been a depressed, lame and pathetic guy that doesn't have a life. Two years ago I realized this. Acquired a more positive mindset, started making some serious changes, and for a short while I was starting to feel great about myself and what's ahead...

    View From The Other Side - Please Read!

    I don't have a low sex drive. I have a healthy sex drive. My problem is that my wife is a candidate for your group, but doesn't seem to care about it. It wasn't always this way. We had a great sex life when we were dating. I thought that I had found my soul mate, so I married her...

    He Thinks I'm Cheating?

    I've never had the wildest sex drive.  I rarely feel turned on and pleasuring my partner just feels like a chore.  Lately it has been really highlighted by the fact that my boyfriend wants sex CONSTANTLY or at least for me to pleasure him once a day.  This really...

    Don't Know What I Should Do

    I really feel so bored with the thought of having sex.  While I do, I think of all of the things that I could be doing instead. It isn't my hubby.  He's great and all. It's just that it has never really entertained or amused me like it seems to for others.  I...

    Not Ready To Quit!

    I am very happily married to a wonderful man. We have always had a great sex life. I love everything about sex with him. He is sweet, considerate, and very very hot. I have always been able to have multiple *******, and totally enjoy being with my husband. In the last 6...

    Intimately Frustrated

    I have been with my boyfriend for just under six year now. I have realized that at first we were both really hot for each other. It was like I couldn’t stop my mojo. However I got mono in 2007 and ever since then my body has been different. I believe my hormones are unbalanced...

    I love sex, I really do.

    It is just something I don't want so often. Is it unusual for a man, as I heard it is always men who wants sex? I lost my virginity to ex girlfriend, but she wanted to much. She even tried to have intercourse with me when I said no. Eventually, I decided to break up with her...

    Happy With A Low Sex Drive.

    I Need a Good Shag

      No doubt about it.  I hate how my libido is so out of whack. One minute its all systems go, the next even the thought of sex is just so uninteresting. And of course the ups and downs have no rhyme or reason and coincide with unfortunate timing with the...

    Don't get me wrong. I like sex.

    Just not often. I used to have a high sex drive but that was three years ago. Once I turned 16, it just started dissolving and here I am.

    .. Is There Any Hope?

    I'm 23 years old, and I have a low sex drive. Extremely low. I've never had any kind of close encounters with ******* during sex. Not one. It's not that they weren't conciderate, or not trying, they were, it was just me. Always me.  I want to want it, but it's just not there...

    Wish I Could Change It

    I wish there was something I could do. I drive my husband nuts and I know it. I just want to want it and don't know why I don't.

    Where Oh Where Has My Libido Gone??

    I'm a 32 year old woman who has had NO sex drive for at least 10 years now. I chalked it up to the birth control pill, but when I was off it for 2 years and my sex drive hadn't returned, I knew something was amiss. I've had my hormone levels checked, spent a few grand at an...
