@Científico dude! This is a defense mechanic. In times of stress and uncertainty (think war) sex drive decreases because it's not needed for survival, instinct kicks in. This has been noted by teevster and myself with mentioning girls lack of sex drive during all of this and rationalised/ justified/ explained by @Skills who compared it to sex drives dropping in war time which I found accurate.This might be a subconscious defense-mechanism to the shitty circumstances we all find ourselves in with this stupid pandemic - however I find my sex drive and my motivation to actually meet women has decreased the past few months.
Like I am perfectly content working out, doing my job, consuming cannabis, and playing video games at home. The desire for contact with women has just gone down.
If I could actually go out I would. When I went on Friday it lifted my spirits considerably. But its not something I crave anymore. I'm certainly masturbating a lot less.
Let's just hope we have a vaccine that works before this causes permanent damage.
I'm actually the opposite to you in my sex drive and desire for contact with girls has increased, but I suppose this is because I work with a lot of girls and for the most part it feels like business as usual. The sexual innuendo, flirting and teasing has increased from the girls with lack of contact elsewhere which puts me in a vicious cycle of not being able to shit where I eat.
