Customer Question

i am 61, male, happily married 39 yrs, great life, satisfying sex life but of late, last year or so I have almost no interest in sex. We have had sex twice in the past 4 months, both times initiated by my wife, and both times her focus on me, rather than me satisfying her. I do not take any medications, am healthy, exercise 3x a week or more, eat decently and sleep soundly.

JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the psychologist should know?

What can I do about my lack of desire?
Expert:  LeahMSWuofm replied 7 months ago.

Hello and thanks for writing to us. My name is***** am sorry you are in this funk right now. Shifting libido is not uncommon in people, nor are ruts. Also, (with all do respect :) ), age can also naturally effect libido. Are there any other correlating mental health symptoms, significant stressors, or any other changes of note in the [past several months? Were you able to perform to your liking with the exception of not much interest in pleasing her those most recent times?

I look forward to thinking this through with you.
