    It is obviously something both unnatural and unhealthy. Whichever the explanation may be... it can be psychological problems as well, besides hormonal ones.

    Solutions for this? Natural aphrodisiacs could be one good solution.

    Here are some articles that mention natural aphrodisiacs (both plants and foods):
    https://www.besthealthmag.ca/best-yo...-aphrodisiacs/
    https://www.health24.com/Sex/Great-s...siacs-20180319

    As I learned from a whole book about natural aphrodisiacs, the most powerful aphrodisiac should be love itself... If you don't feel like making love with your loved one there should be a problem... it is either not enough love, not feeling loved... or as stated above, psychological or hormonal problems... But very often the cause can be psychological.

    Someone who doesn't eat healthy, even if not taking contraceptive pills, is also exposed to such risks... and there can be other factors as well.


    Not having sex at all, especially if in a relationship, can be very unhealthy and can cause lots of problems. It is well known that people who have libido and don't make love can develop serious psychological problems... and also look at crazy monks and nuns as a negative example in that direction... There are possibilities to use the sexual energy on higher levels of one's being, but too few people know how to do that, for the vast majority there is a huge problem not having a healthy sexual life.

    If one of the partners lacks the libido... they should solve the problem, really! If eating healthier doesn't help, then they should seek for specialized psychological help (for example, therapy for couples, to begin with)...

    However, they should seek for good quality help, not for brainwashed 'specialists' who consider asexuality as something normal as homosexuality or people who want to change their sex biologically... All of these are serious problems, and not something 'born that way'... So going to someone who is 'politically correct' and ask for help wouldn't help at all...

    If I had a partner and didn't want to make love with them I would definitely know something was wrong with me or with our relationship... and the same if they didn't want to make love with me, there should be a problem...

    Seriously, lack of libido IS a problem... and it can be caused by stress too (very common problem nowadays).

    I am a proud member of AVEN. Asexuality is completely normal and natural for some people. Sexual drive is not the same as the drive for food, water, etc. Not even close. Some people have the need while others don't. Different strokes for different folks.

    I'm not picking on saxonbrit or other asexuals, but I find it annoying that a scientific term is being misused. Asexuality is the biological ability to reproduce via mitosis and without a mate. Obviously, folks can use whatever term they wish to describe themselves, though.

    I also have to diasgree with the poster who referred to the Catholic Church as asexual. The Church advocates chastity, which is a virtue that assures that our sexuality is ordered towards its appropriate end. Everyone, married or unmarried, is called to chastity, and contrary to popular belief, sexuality is considered a great good by the Catholic Church. Other terms cause misunderstandings, too. Celibacy is simply the state of being unmarried, though people associate it with the priesthood (Latin rite) because the norm is for priests to be unmarried. Continence, on the other hand, refers to not using the sexual faculties.
    Let us not desire delights, daughters; we are well-off here; the bad inn lasts for only a night.
    -St. Teresa of Avila
