    19 and no sex drive!
    I am a 19 year old male who has little to no interest in sex....
    I don't get spontaneous erections, I don't have strong urges to masturbate and getting it up when forcing myself to look at porn is not as easy as it should be.

    The wierd that is that I am a 6 foot, 180 pound male, sitting at 10 percent bodyfat, so yes I carry a fair bit of muslce for my age. I grow thicker facial and body than the vast majority of guys my own age and could grow a full thick beard at 16..... so I can't see how my test levels can be low....?

    The only medical condition I have ever suffered from is depression, which I am still currently in the midst of (no Prozac in 6 months), but I think I am clutching at draws here, I don't know what could be causing my penile problems.

    Hi Tomchlinn,

    This is very brave of you to talk about.


    Your sex drive is not only dependent on physical factors but also emotional ones. It could be possible that your depression is playing a role in your low sex drive. I suggest speaking with your doctor about your concerns and possibly getting a blood test, which will be able to tell you your hormone levels.


    There is no reason to be afraid to talk to your doctor about these topics. They are there to help you and you are definitely not alone.

    Here are links to information that I found on WebMD that you might find useful:
