Thoughts on Mental Health

Many people are concerned about their sexual desire - 'Am I wanting sex too much or too little, or why aren't I interested in sex?' The truth is there is no hard and fast rule, though for a couple it's helpful if both are comfortable with the amount of intimacy and sex they have. Intimacy and sex are not quite the same thing, yet intimacy is essential to most humans and definitely enhances sexual activity, which most would like to enjoy and feel positive about. It is normal to have less (or perhaps more) desire for sex, in certain circumstances. Some common causes of changes in sexual desire include: illness, feeling disconnected from your partner, being unhappy about your body image, and distractions such as technology or porn. You may also experience a change in your sexual desire if you are feeling emotionally stressed, for example if you are depressed, suffering loss or conflict. You may not be enjoying sex, have a fear of failure, or sexual problems such as pain on intercourse, premature ejaculation, erection difficulties or inability to orgasm; or you may have issues relating to sexual abuse you've experienced in the past.†Ideally, talking to a counsellor who understands psychosexual issues is a good starting place for both couples and individuals.
