when i was younger i was easily aroused just by watching porn and fantasizing, but after a while i stopped and now no matter what i do i cant really seem to get aroused, so much that i forgot how it feels like. i saw another thread which says that sex drive changes over a lifetime, but despite feeling lots of sex desire when i try to do something to make myself aroused i cant seem to get anywhere. when my partner touches me i feel a little good but i don't think i feel very aroused or something, feels kind of muted. i think i had orgasms from masturbating but i dont think i feel aroused either (im not sure, i had hypersensitivity after that so i think i had one). whats wrong with me? i remember that it feels good to be aroused but now i cant experience it anymore [Frown] do have have some kind of sexual anhedonia?

can we make sure that we're on the same page about what arousal is? So many people use these terms so differently.

Are you talking about feeling desire or arousal (or both)? Are we talking about physical feelings, emotional or psychological ones (or all of the above)?

Anything going on right now with your physical or mental health? Using any medications of any kind?

im talking about arousal as in having physical changes in the body. i can feel much desire but not really arousal. im not sure whats the difference between physical, emotional and psychological feelings though. :/

nothing going on with physical/mental health, not taking medication either. D:
