Being a man who has little interest in sex (I’ve realized I’m not asexual. I enjoy sex but I don’t seek it at all, feel tired afterwards, and can forget about it without any feeling of being denied anything), I notice that society treats men and women very differently in this regard.
For men it’s almost like sexuality is static (either they are raging in attraction to men, women and or both) or they have a dysfunction (at least that’s how it’s perceived by society). For women on the other hand, they are seen as less sexual (but I suppose there’s a social pressure for women enjoying sex) but can also it’s accepted now accepted that they can be hypersexual and the total opposite, asexual.
Why do you think this is? I didn’t get much help from my doctor. It took me until 19 to first “get it off” by myself. Went to a doctor numerous times, they tested my testosterone levels and said they were definitely fine. Never really took it seriously. People in my class find it difficult to understand that I was in a relationship and didn’t want much sex.
