I am a 41 yo Caucasian male with a question: I have no problem getting aroused but I find it hard to reach orgasm. This applies to intercourse or masturbation. This is not always the case and restraining from any sexual release for several days may speed things up, but not always. I have taken different antidepressants in the past and the problem was intensified. I have been off antidepressants for about 6 months. Also, after several days without sex, how many times would a normal male be able...

I am a 29 year old male who has noticed a significant decrease in penis sensation over the years. In fact, I really do not feel anything until about 30 seconds before I ejaculate. In order to get that far I need lots of oral sex with a strong hand grip going up and down from the female. It has lessened my desire for sex and has destroyed some of my relationships. I wonder if there is a problem or if what I am experiencing is normal sexual sensations. If so, I can't even understand why...

I am much more interested in sex than my husband. It causes problems in our marriage because I feel he doesn't love me as much because he rejects my advances more often than not. To compensate, I masterbate fairly frequently. We have been married 14 years and have a 4 year old and a 9 month old. I get less sleep by far than he does and yet he still uses the too tired excuse, among others, on a regular basis. If it weren't for the kids and the fact that he is truly a good man, I'd...

My sex life used to be great but for the past month or so it has gone downhill. It is real enjoyable for the first 15 minutes or so then that pleasure just goes away and nothing happens. Me and boyfriend have tried different things but nothing seems to work. My boyfriend thinks it is him and it really has an effect on our relationship and advise u could give me will be greatly appericated.

I have been with my partner for nearly five years, but days ago he dropped the bombshell that he thinks that he no longer finds me sexually attractive. As far as I can tell, everything was fine until about a month ago. He says that he has been confused for longer, however. Things were exacerbated when he restarted university; he met a girl that he found attractive, which made him realise that he didn't find me attractive. He was never unfaithful (physically), but he told her how he felt, and...

I lost my virginity at 16, and since have had a few sexual partners,including a husband of a year. I've been divorced for about 5 months and have started a new 'old' relationship, sex was just kind of understood. The thing is, I don't think I've ever had an orgasm with any partner. I was a very sexually active wife and have continued with my new partner, but something is still missing. I have come to the conclusion that it is impossible for me to have an orgasm. I have never had sex without...

hello Dr. Love, my boyfriend and i have been together for almost 2 years now. At first we had great sex, until i developed an yeast infection. We have tried everything to get rid of it and nothing helps. He gets hurt when i do not feel like having sex, and at the same time i get upset at him that he does not understand me. What would you recommend i do. I do not have this earge for sex anymore, is it because of the infection?
