What is reduced interest in making love? What causes people to feel like making love and not feel like making love?
Feeling like making love, also called sexual desire, is an emotional
and physical reaction to an erotic stimulation. This means that if you get
sexually stimulated, usually a physical reaction, men get an erection for
example and an emotional reaction, feel like making love, take place.
It is difficult to determine when someone has insufficient interest in
making love. With people who don't have much interest in making love this
feeling is always present and this influences the relationship with the
partner or the person suffers from it in some other way. If you have no
interest in making love, you don't have sexual thoughts and fantasies or
lust for sex. It is important to look at the relationship between the
partners. If one partner is usually more interested in making love than
the other partner, then the one with less interest is often considered
abnormal. However this person may not be less interested than 'average',
but is only less interested than the partner.
