Libido Issues

What is libido?

Libido is a persons sex drive or desire for sexual activity. Libido is influenced by biological, psychological and social factors. Social factors, such as work and family, and internal psychological factors such as personality and stress can affect libido. Libido can also be affected by medical conditions, medications, lifestyle and relationship issues and age. People can have low libidos, high libidos and mismatched libidos. Low libido or lack of desire affects 25% of penis owners and 40% of vulva owners. It is a fallacy that penis owners always have a high libido and vulva owners a low one. All people are individual and should be treated as such. It is also VERY important to realise that libido fluctuates for everyone and this is normal. It is an unrealistic expectation to feel horny all the time, but this doesn't mean you should not seek help. Book a consult with Melissa to discuss further.
