    Thought I'd solicit some feedback...for the past couple of years my interest in sex has completely vanished....hell, I can't even be bothered with masturbation...

    I'm on HRT for years now which I suppose helps...not enough testosterone to "become a 'roid' head"...just enough to bring me within "normal" levels...

    so, it's not physiological as best my doc and I can tell....

    anyone else going through this, or had gone through this? Any advice?

    Thanks...it's starting to be a real drag...

    What about depression, even mild depression or stress? I know over the past year and a half etc when my sis was dying and my mom was so stressed over it leading her to get sick herself, then having her diagnosed with Alzheimers (which explained a lot of things) my interest waned exponentially

    I agree that it could be related to depression. Another thought - are you on any medications that could reduce the sex drive?

    I'm not on any medications...and, yes...depression is a part of it...though...I've been battling with depression most of my adult life and it's never taken this form before...at least not for so long...maybe 1 month or 2...but, this has been going on for more than 2 years now icon_sad.gif

    Thanks for the input, guys

    ....or it could be because youre simply not interested right now.
    Men, especially homosexual men, are conditioned to believe that we all should be thinking about sex and doing something sexual all the time, 24/7.
    During our teenage years and in our twenties, yes thats biologically expected, but as we all mature we do have other things we have to do besides planning about who we want to fuck that day. There are other important stuff to take care of.
    And im not saying sex isnt important anymore, im saying its not a high priority at the moment.
    Im sure as long as you take care of your physical, mental and emotional health, your libido will be back.
    Dont force it. Relax. Youll be good man.

    seriously, talk to your doc about a trial of the antidepressant Wellbutrin. assuming you don't have a seizure history, it may be a good therapy to raise energy/mood/libido. it doesn't have the classic side effects of SSRIs and can increase sex drive. good luck.

    "Welcome to middle age" as my doctor so eloquently stated it. It's definitely stress and depression. Get some exercise to get those pipes flowing and do some stretching to relieve your stress.... and get good sleep too.

    And it's comes with the aging process...

    Take some L-Arginine at night before you go to bed. I have the past 3 days and have boners all night and upon waking. icon_biggrin.gif

    That's a shame, man. Anti-depressants might help but not with the libido.

    Got to get yourself interested in something/someone. Nothing like a hot guy to help get you back on track......and eat lots of broccolli.....icon_wink.gif

    Put your sex driver on the back burner for the moment and try to find something unrelated to sex that can really excite you. Take up a hobby that makes you want to get out of bed everyday and work on it. Consider a sport because that will help with your testosterone level. I took up whitewater kayaking at your age and mountain biking a year early and surfing two years later. Sports of this nature push you to work hard without you even thinking of it. They give you a thrill, the kind you once felt for sex. I'm also convinced that these sports make you horny as hell perhaps because of the excitement you feel. It seems I always want sex after an exciting session.

    Good luck.
