When I'm really drowning in depression, I forget I ever even had a sex drive, but right now I'm in this irritating halfway point where I keep thinking about sex but can't get excited at all. It's similar to not wanting food but wishing you had the appetite for it anyway - yet another of the many perks that comes along with a gloriously shitty depressive episode.

Anybody else in the same boat? Or are you at the point where you DGAF at all?

Currently I like the idea of sex but not the act itself. It's weird, but for large portions of my life I have preferred masturbation to intercourse. As your plain old straight dude I have found that to be considered very unusual, and yet it's almost always been the case for me. I think perhaps it's because I tend to live in my mind. For me, things like fantasies seem to be more exciting than real acts, if that even makes sense.

I simply go with the flow, it ebbs and flows.. I don't have a partner now, so I don't mind.. Sex to me is sacred.. connecting on all levels... masturbation however is like scratching an itch..

I find my sexual desires to be a nuisance, and my urge to masturbate to be even more so… I already know I’m not gonna be having sex ever again and I certainly am not going to have any babies, I honestly wish it would just disappear entirely.

Ah, see, I've never been in a relationship and connecting with someone sounds scary to me, so I don't know if I can relate.

Same here. Alcoholism annihilated my testosterone levels. That plus depression makes me unable to masturbate at all most of the time. Funnily enough when I tried to hang myself, I was able to masturbate twice in between attempts. I think it was the lack of depression and adrenaline during the attempts.
