Lack Of Desire A low or lack of sex desire may be a primary condition (where the person has never had sexual desire or interest), or it may be secondary (where the person used to have sex desire earlier).
Low or lack of sexual desire may also be either situational to the partner (where he/she has interest in other persons, but not toward the partner), or it may be general (where he/she has a lack of sexual interest in anyone)
Lack of sex desire or low sex desire could be due to psycogenic or physical causes.
Psychogenic causes can be from anxiety, dislike of partner, disturbed inter-personal relationship, depression to schizophrenia etc.
At times,communication problems, lack of affection ,conflicts, lack of time , insomnia or inadequate sleep may also be a cause for low or lack of sex desire. It may also be associated with a very restrictive upbringing concerning sex, negative attitudes toward sex, or negative or traumatic sexual experiences such as rape, incest, or sexual abuse . Occassionally, the cause may be due to relationship problems wherein one partner does not feel intimate or close to their partner.
