Sexual desires lowered?
      06/23/09 09:37 PM


I know this is a weird question, but I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this.

I know I've only had a few days to deal with this (since Saturday, 6/20), but since then I have had zero sexual desires/urges whatever you want to call it. To the point that I do not want to see sex on tv or hear my friends talk about it. It makes me uncomfortable and feel kinda grossed out.

Previous to this, I had a very strong "healthy" sexual appetite. If I wasn't having sex with my "partner," I was masturbating about 2-3x a day. Now the thought of penis, cum, anything just disturbs me.

Has anyone else gone through this? Is this 'normal' or am I having some weird delusional issue in my brain with trying to process everything?

I know this is probably an odd question and maybe too personal for this forum, but I just need to know how to deal with this. I'm in no hurry to have sex again - at all - but I want to know if this is a normal feeling or what.

Thanks everyone
