Loss of sexual desire is a sexual dysfunction seen in many men and women. We can describe the loss of sexual interest because of internal or external factors. Absence of sexual desire decreases the quality of life of every individual regardless of gender and damages the relationship dynamics.
Sexuality is the natural impulse of every human being. Sexual impulses develop with healthy and adequate stimuli and contribute positively to one’s quality of life. Healthy sexual life strengthens the bonds of the spouses and acts as a lightning rod to solve the relationship problems.
Loss of sexual interest in one of the couples, i.e. sexual reluctance, can cause serious harm to the relationship if not treated. Therefore, as with other sexual dysfunctions, lack of sexual desire should be treated.
After reviewing the physical factors, the problem should be addressed psychologically, and the therapy process should be initiated.
The lack of sexual desire therapy process is a journey that requires patience as in other dysfunctions. This process, which begins with medical history taking, ends with cognitive sexual therapy, behavioural sexual therapies for the elimination of deficiencies, structuring the relationship dynamics, and the elimination of this symptom. The important factor to be questioned here is the spouse/partner effect. In the researches, the partner factor is the one of the major factors causing absence of sexual drive.
Regardless of the cause, sexual aversion is a dysfunction that can be overcome by obtaining professional support.
