Howdy Robert!
Don't really understand what you mean by: " I have not gone four times back to back in years".

My libido (sex drive) is pretty much gone. I suspect my testesterone has been really reduced. I do want to be with a woman, but seek companionship more than sex right now. It was like that even after I met my sobride "Jem". I loved her tremendously but I had to remind myself to put out the effort to be sexual with her.

I have diabetic neuropathy which affects my male organs too so I have trouble feeling anything with them. And I have ED so I can't get my "little jimmy" (as Jem affectionately called it) up now for about 5 or 6 years now. But we did nave a good sex life while she was alive. We found ways to pleasure one another in other ways.

Yes meds can affect your sex life sometimes quite a bit.

Hi Jayabee52, I have had type 2 for the last 12 years with about the same phenomenon but I find good desire (better than before), deep in my heart but unable to translate it into physical reality. What would you call it, feeling thirsty but unable to drink water. Am I sinking into a reverie? Is there a medical explanation. I was,nt like that when I was fit and healthy.

I had problems in the sex act department. I took the initiative with my bride because I felt she wanted/needed to know she was desirable. I really didn't feel like it when I started, but once we got going, my interest picked up and she reciprocated. Sometimes to feel sensual/sexual we need to act that way, and it snowballs into full blown desire.

There may be medical reasons for the lack of desire, but that doesn't mean that you can't get something started and keep it going. Even though we could not "complete" the sex act with mutual orgasms, that does not mean that it was not enjoyable for both of us. I wish "Jem" was here with me tonight, but she passed from this life about a year ago. I don't think I'd be here replying to posts if she were with me.
