Is your Libido what you Thought it was?

3 posts in this topic


So, it seems like many people on here (myself included) feel like we have high to very high libidos. Is it possible this is only because we're refraining from sex? Is it just that we have pent up sexual desire? Did you also assume you had a high libido only to find it wasn't what you thought it was once you started having sex?

My libido has increased since I first started dating my husband.


This is not VDA, so I will try to word this carefully.


Prior to meeting Beau, I could go months without strong sexual urges. Then I might have a period of time when I masturbated 1-2 times a week, or just 1-2 times a month. There was no consistency to my libido, nor were there any clear instigators for change.


Now, except for occasions when I very sick or tired (I have Crohn's so this is quite often), I want to have sex 2-3 times a week.


I will add that libido doesn't always match sex frequency. Partnered sex takes considerable time and energy, which is not necessarily true for solo sex.
