The stress of COVID-19 has many people feeling differently towards sex and relationships. It's okay if your sex drive alters or patience wears thin, these are normal responses to the pandemic. Be kind to yourself, listen to your body and know that everything is going to be okay.
different people are going to respond to the co vid pandemic in different ways. Uncertainty that not knowing what's going to happen could be really challenging and anxiety inducing. For those feeling high levels of stress and or anxiety, desire or interest in sex will vary. For some, sex might be a welcome break from worrying. Sexual release through orgasm can reduce feelings of stress for others worrying about money, health, family, the world etcetera will completely shut down any need or desire for sex. These feelings of anxiety can also trigger trauma responses because of this general feeling of not being safe on that can lead to shutting down or being extra agitated. And all of these responses are in the realm of normal. There are a lot of posts in the sex educator and sex positive world on social media encouraging people to masturbate and have partnered sex and those air great choices. But for some people, it is just not an option. I just want you to know that there's no right way to feel about sex in this very weird time,
