What to do about a sexless, but not loveless, marriage?

I have been dreading asking this question because it’s so painful, but I feel like I really need to get this sorted out so I can move on with my life. So here it is: My husband and I haven’t had sex in over a year, probably inching closer to two years by now and I wonder if I’m just fooling myself/prolonging the inevitable in staying married to him.

How can I both cure my depression and get my sex drive back?

I used to like all kinds of funky sex. Since depression came into my life a few years ago, I've been far, far less sexual. In the last few months, I can't even find the will to masturbate let alone allow my beloved to penetrate me or otherwise enjoy sexual activity with me. I don't want to be depressed anymore, and I also want to get back to embodying the sexual being I used to be. How? [more inside]

Wellbutrin not working - other antidepressants with no effect on libido?

I am a naturally anxious person. I have been on Wellbutrin 150XL for over a month now for various life issues, and my anxiety, which was bad before, has gotten worse. It has manifested as extreme muscle tension/stiffness along with a bit of pain. My jaw is clenched 24/7, and my face and shoulders feel stiff. So, I would like to wean off, and I would like to find an antidepressant that gets me feeling good again - but doesn't affect my libido to the point where I am basically asexual. [more inside]

Do cymbalta induced sexual side effects improve?

I was wondering if anyone who has taken Cymbalta and got side sexual side effects ever had their sexual side effects wear off. I am a male in my 20s, and besides the side effects the drug is working well. I am taking the drug for a hernia in my neck, and only later found out that the drug is also an antidepressant with potential sexual side effects . I would like to hear some personal anecdotes/problems/success stories dealing with the sex aspect of the drug. [more inside]

I've lost interest in sex with my boyfriend, and find things increasingly uncomfortable in that department. What should I do?!

I've lost interest in sex with my boyfriend, and find things increasingly uncomfortable in that department. What should I do?! I'm a 28 year old female, and have been in a long term committed relationship with my current boyfriend for about 3 years now. I'd been a virgin up until about 2 and ½ years ago. My upbringing was uneventful, and I've never had any traumatic experiences that I can recall involving sexuality, however I have always felt embarrassed about sex related things, which is why before my current boyfriend I always just made out with whoever I felt like.

Loss of libido

I'm 67, male, and have a very low libido, which comes as a surprise after having a very high one all my life until three years ago. I'd like to be more interested in sex since I still love women - any thoughts on a way to turbo-charge my lagging desire? (Viagra, of course, relies on desire to activate its useful effect)

did my "sleeping beast" wake up?

ahem... this is a little embarrassing. I am female in my late 20's and have been attracted to both men and women before, and have sort of had relationships/ people I dated. When friends talk about their, hmm, libido, I never really know what they are talking about, and the phrase "physical attraction" as opposed to emotional or pretty face has never made sense to me. Until the other day. This woman with whom I have been working on a project came to the last meeting in a tight-fitting shirt, which accentuates her very slim and nimble waist. And uh, hmm, let's just say, both physically and mentally, I reacted instinctively and unexpectedly. (good thing nobody noticed.) And 2 weeks later I still can't stop thinking about it, so here it is, hive mind, explain to me. [more inside]
