Okay this is kind of awkward....anyway I know everyone masturbates and I do to. The only thing that ive been curious is when I am in the mood and do masturbate, and when I do stimulate myself after a little bit the excitement just goes away. I dont know how to explain it, I would really like to experience some kind of orgasm but how can I if my body looses interest after a minute. My mind wants to and I feel unsatisfied physically too. I don't know if i'm making any sense i am trying to. I do have an illness and i am on anti-depressants to balance me out and I do know that does have make me less in the mood, but would that affect me when I do manage to actually feel sexually excited?

Certain medications can affect your libido and your sexual response, and anti-depressants can fall into that category. Certain immuno suppressants which you're on if you have Lupus (I'm making that presumption) can make you feel kinda poopy also I know and this can affect that too.
Perhaps you need to concentrate on exploring yourself more and worrying less about the sexual exitement aspect of it, and perhaps you'll find what you like and what you enjoy and work with that? If you're focused on worrying about loss of sexual excitement that can make it hard to stay excited also!
So my advice is to just take it easy, relax, explore and see if you can find ways to keep yourself interested that way and bear in mind that it could be medication related.
Are you sexually active, do you find a similar situation arises if you are?
