A lack of sexual interest – or at least a perceived lack of it – can create relationship tension and sow discord and distrust. This is validated by sexual health experts and sex therapists, who report that low libido is the most common problem brought up in sexual health counselling.
If a man is physically capable of sex but does not want it, it’s difficult for his partner to not take it personally and conclude he doesn’t want that form of intimacy with her. No woman likes feeling sexually undesirable – this can drain intimacy and positive feelings from a relationship.
Over time, if the problem isn’t dealt with, it can even lead to fears that one partner may be having an affair. Long-term low libido problems can cause tension and distrust in even the strongest relationships.
Low libido in men is a relatively common problem, with an estimated one in three marriages affected in some way by low sex drive. Despite this fact, the issue is one of the hardest for men to acknowledge and talk about, as faulty stereotypes present men as always ‘raring to go’ sexually.
In a survey of 1,000 women conducted for Redbook magazine by Weiner-Davis, 60 percent considered they wanted sex just as much, if not more, than their husbands. The survey concluded that most marriages, where the man suffered from low libido and refused to acknowledge it, ended in divorce.
A loss of libido is estimated to affect around a third to half of all men. But it’s not just a male problem, with low sex drive just as likely to affect women, However, while many women are not bothered by a loss of libido, it can scare men because being sexually active is such a strong part of the male identity. One survey showed only 23 percent of men with low libido considered themselves happy, while 46 percent of women with low libido said the same.
Studies by the American Medical Association showed low libido is the most common sexual health problem in men. And it’s the second most common sexual dysfunction after premature ejaculation.
Research suggests the following:
The causes of low libido in men can be categorised as either physical, or psychological and emotional.
The lack of libido in men is not to be confused with erectile dysfunction (ED). Most men with a lack of libido can achieve erections but have lost the desire to have sex. Impotence, or erectile dysfunction, is wanting to have sex but not being able to get an erection. Most men with low libido can usually get an erection, but the two conditions are related because men who experience ED are also likely to develop low libido if the situation remains unresolved.
Sex therapists say it’s increasingly common for them to see couples where the man, rather than the woman, has low sexual desire. Sex therapist Dr. Rosie King says in any relationship there is often one partner with lower and one with higher libido levels. While it is usually assumed the woman will be the ‘low desire’ partner, this is not always the case.
Men should have testosterone, DHEA and other androgen levels checked if there is a noticeable reduction in sex drive.
Consider health checks to determine if there are any physical contributors to low libido. A man’s low sex drive may be the result of a thyroid condition, diabetes, hypertension, high blood pressure or other major illness. Some antidepressants, tranquilisers and anti-hypertensive drugs – as well as illegal drugs like marijuana and cocaine – can also reduce sex drive.
