A lot of you people in these comments are not too dissimilar from a person mocking the sick. That happened a couple weeks ago. The male eye seems attracted to the right shape even to near-death! She needs to find a man who is all the things this guy is, only not a flake. I think either they have it in them or they don't. Anything that can help relieve stress, whether it's relaxation exercises or a trip to the gym, can help put a mans mind back on more pleasant subjects. We are very lovey-dovey like, being cutsy and peck kisses, and playing around, but I have to beg him to have sex with me at least once a month. The problem with this drive is that it does not last.
For a while, I thought he'd lost interest in me, or he was cheating on me, even. The force of ejaculation may be less, as is the amount ejaculated. I'm definitely at my sexual peak, which has shown no sign of nadir yet. The sex lives of men can seem like something akin to an Aesop's fable. Of course, the level of excitement cannot be maintained but we have a 9 year old grandson. You guessed it: our old friend porn.
If either of your men are able to achieve an erection via self-masturbation, then the problem lies with desire, not the ability to perform. Eating refined grains can lead to insulin resistance, the last stop before diabetes. And then, it is most likely that both he and his partner will go through moments of discomfort, uneasiness, dissappointment, even despair. Single gay men living in urban cities have a reputation for having a significant number of partners. He'd suffered with it for 12 years, and only came to me because his current partner said she would leave unless he sought help. It's often linked to relationship issues, stress or tiredness, but can be a sign of an underlying medical problem, such as reduced hormone levels.
Keep Loving Him Through It Remember that marriage does last decades. Some males might even welcome it if their sex drive dropped a few notches. The media emphasis is always on the man needing more, not the woman. Your not doing the situation much good by talking to us. It was like having the Paul I first met back again. Nobody knows precisely what accounts for these differences, but there is nothing abnormal about having a relatively lower sex drive than the next guy. We're having more of it, and I initiate it more often.
Beyond aging, some reasons why libido may be affected for temporary periods of time at any point in the life cycle include stress, fatigue, preoccupation with work, side effects of medications, medical conditions, dissatisfaction with a relationship, and lack of desire for a partner, among others. A recent illness, excess poundage, lack of exercise, eating big meals or boozing could be to blame.

I don't exactly know why, but that really validated me.

Antidepressants and other medications like Adderall and birth control hello, irony can interrupt how your body produces and manages hormones like serotonin, epinephrine, and dopamine, which all influence your sex drive.
Low libido, or loss of sex drive, can spur men to visit their doctor. I've gotten a bit harder to please; if I do watch porn, I need the kind that is a bit more suggestive. However, as long as they refuse to accept the problem and ask for help, they end up thinking about it even more and, thus, the vicious circle remains there and perpetuates. For people who are married or in a relationship, sex drive also reflects the health of partnerships, for better for worse. They had no idea what I was talking about. A man's body is constructed in such a way that there is good sexual function only if he is calm and at ease.
My expectation was for him to immediately flip me over his shoulder, toss me on the bed, and join me in some epic sex. Evolution rewarded men who where polygamous. If you suspect it's a matter of his not expressing what turns him on that's keeping his bod in neutral, tell him that you're totally open to suggestions and whisper something X-rated in his ear.

They're not as dependent on it. Anonymous · 22 Oct 2005Having achieved my 70th year, I wish to comment that libido or sex drive seems to be affected by medications, extra weight, cares at work, alcohol and just about every other thing in life at some time.
