Sex, intimacy, and desire are no exception. Just as your emotions might be all over the place thanks to the many stressful aspects of the pandemic, you might be experiencing some unexpected changes to your sex life, your masturbation or pornography habits, and what you feel and desire in general.
Some responses have been edited and condensed for clarity. Listen, we had to start here. Masturbation is a time-honored time waster for many. Like, a lot a lot. For a lot of people, stressdepression, anxiety, and other mental health effects of the pandemic are getting in the way of their desires to have sex or masturbate. I hope this passes. It sucks. Even if you are having sex, you might be having trouble enjoying it.
Maybe practically speaking, nothing about your sexual situation has changed, but the circumstances are definitely making you feel a certain way. Many people like me deal with not having our sexual needs or desires met. Uncertainty about the future might also be making you feel worse. The first two weeks of quarantine were harder because it had already been a while and I was hoping to try something different this year. Right now, I want hugs more than anything. It only took two weeks to discover our relationship has totally lost its spark. I think I realized how much our sex life sucks by taking a break from it.
Hey, now might just be the perfect time for some exploration and discovery. Maybe I will learn to become more comfortable with my sexuality.
Speaking of exploration, porn habits came up a lot. I could really go for fucking in a park right now.

According to the Cleveland Clinicthere are four main of sexual dysfunction: desire disorders the lack of sexual desirearousal disorders the inability to become physically aroused during sexual activityorgasm disorders the delay or inability to have an orgasmand pain disorders pain during intercourse. Pornography has lost most of its effect.
