Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I just very rarely would feel like it. It may sound stupid but I when I drink alcohol which isn't often it's a lot better.
No, I don't take any medication or any problems.

Thank you for that additional information.

The fact that drinking some alcohol makes the sex better is, actually, a good sign.

This is an indication that, with therapy, you have a good chance of returning to your baseline sexual activity and function.

So. How do you do this?

I would suggest starting with a PhD psychologist. After meeting with you she may want to incorporate medications (obtained through a psychiatrist) and, possibly encounters with a sex therapist.

I am sure these services are available near you.

Does this make sense?
