Hey y’all.Sorry this thread may get a bit graphic / sexually frank.
I recently posted about my lack of interest in relationships after my most recent breakup in November. You can look up that thread if you like. I just don’t have the interest in having relationships right now. But I’ve come to acknowledge today something else has happened. My sex drive has ground to a near halt. I don’t even really masturbate much now. I used to have such a high sex drive. I realized today that in my last four relationships, all of my partners were either uncomfortable with sex, or I was given criticism that my sex drive was too high. I never engage in sex with partners without consent…and while I advocated for it in my relationships I always would stop if I felt in any way I was being pushy. Even my partner from over three years ago complained about my sex-drive (though she also enjoyed it at times)
I think of late I’m feeling guilty about myself and how I want sex in my relationships. Like maybe I really am the one at fault here. I can’t muster up any emotions or excitement about physical relations now. And I feel sad writing this. Maybe I should go talk with someone. Has this happened to anyone else? Losing sex drive after broken relationships? I’m completely healthy and in good shape too.
