Is it normal to suddenly loose your sex drive?

    So I am a 24 year old gay and all of a sudden my sex drive has gone through the floor. Its to the point where I am forcing myself to have sex because I love my boyfriend and don't want him to feel unloved in a way

    But seriously if I was single I wouldn't be going out to get some. I have stopped jerking off myself etc.

    If it's gradual, it's more normal, but not completely normal.

    If it's sudden, then, no, I don't think it's normal.

    Stress and depression can deal a blow to someone's sex drive. Only you know what's going on. Is it about something else that's going on?

    Stress/ depression, new medication, if you've recently stopped working out/ being as physical in just your day to day could all lower your testosterone. Or could be relationship stuff, although if you still want to please him that looks unlikely. but sometimes underlying things, unfinished or on-going arguments, etc
