Where has my sexual desire gone, and how do I get it back?
Sexual desire is normal for most people. The urge itself is a complex combination of intellectual ideas and fantasies. It is usually connected to a physiological response, but one that can theoretically be separated – for instance, one’s body may become aroused in the presence of someone with whom it would be inappropriate to have sex. The mental wish for sex – either a specific enthusiasm to be erotically connected with another being, a desire to masturbate or a more general longing without a particular object – can precede, follow or be simultaneous with actual physiological arousal.
