    Mine is higher since I reduced my anti-depressant. I hadn't realised how much my libido had lowered until I reduced it right down. Does the pill lower your sex drive? For me, it doesn't as I've been on it for years and I'm still permanently horny!

    A lot of medication can affect your sex drive unfortunately...mine changed when I was taking meds to control anxiety when I was going through the menopause.

    I bet if you looked at the leaflet with the tablets it says possible reduced libido.

    I have found that if you type your drug name (usually it has two names) into google you can usually find a forum or two and garner useful info about how it affect you, or not as the case may be.

    My sex drive is very high indeed but Im so lucky because my wifes is far higher than mine and is constantly requiring servicing one way or the other. She has a lady friend who lives a 5 minute drive away and is constantly in our house helping out with things together with myself. So my sex drive is catered for whatever I need.

    Since becoming sexually active my sex drive has always been pretty constant - loved sex (with my partner), would always accept if offered (unless I'm tired) but probably only initiated it about 30% of the time, noticably more horny at certain points in my cycle.

    Over the last few months it has skyrocketed to the point where I'm initiating it 90% of the time, started sending sexy texts/photos to my OH while he's at work, buying more on Lovehoney, looking at more porn (yey for Tumblr) and being more experimental. This comes directly after being poorly for a few months and my sex drive had plummeted, due to pain and fatigue. I think I'm making up for lost time and then some. My OH is over the moon, as am I.

    I think as long as you're not frustrated, having a high sex drive can only be a good thing.

    I've always been a little worried about my sex drive. But after reading the many posts on here, I'm relieved that I'm not alone.
    I am married, but for one reason or another, my wife has a very low to a very lacking sex drive. Yes it's frustrating, but I love her to bits.
    So I play solo a lot, but have a couple of kinks I alternate with to keep a lid on things.

    I'd just like to say thankyou to all those who posted their answers to the original posters question.

    Like most other peeps commenting, I have a very high sex drive as well - unfortunately hubby doesn't so I indulge in lots of solo play fantasizing about all manner of scenarios and getting very creative with self arousal techniques 😉

    Its isnt that common that both partners will have the same sex drive. Normally one is higher than the other and adjustments will be needed by the partner with the highest sex drive and possibly more patience as well.

    My OH and I both have high sex drives which is now made worse that we are expecting twins. We can not get enough of each other.

    My sex drive is really low. It used to be high and then I lost interest completely, I got it back then the husband got a job away from home. I think it's dwindled as I know he's not around all the time. I crave the intimacy not the act itself really so masturbating isn't really something I do.

    My sex drive is really high. O. H is low. So I masturbate as and when I need.
    However last Saturday in the middle of foreplay, For the first time ever I didn't want and couldn't face sex. I just broke down & cried. My O. H was wonderful about it & just held me, Whilst I cried myself to sleep.
    As we only see each other at weekends normally we're at it like rabbits. But I just can't face sex at all.
    Scary!! .

    My sex drive is just insanely high. Most of the time I just want to masturbate because I know what I like and how to get off, whereas with my OH is a bit weird sometimes. If I'm upset with him or if he's doing something that annoys me, I find it bery hard to relax and get in the mood, I know he's just human and like me, get it wrong sometimes, but this affects my sex drive to have sex with him. Masturbate is always my number one, it might be selfish, but keeps me happy and sane.

    As a female, mine is very high! Thankfully it is met by OH, who adores having a frisky wife!

    However, if we have a falling out, that is the first thing I take full advantage of 🙈! Talk about cutting off your nose to spite your face 😜

    Make up sex though... Wow! You'd think I'd been on a deserted island for a month lol! Having a compatible partner is a blessing for sure 💯✌️

    Hiya all,

    (New to love honey in general)
    I have the same issue. I find my sex drive goes way above and beyond my current boyfriend and previous partners. So I relate to this a lot.

    I have found if I complete these steps it makes it much easier to handle (below). If you want to know the origin of your sexual desire or to under stand why you are so wanting. I suggest looking in to your childhood or teenage years. For me I felt suppressed in my sex drive and opinion of sex and so therefore (without being to personal) it has affected my want for it now.
    1. Take a few deep breaths catch your behaviour as such.
    2. If you are in an appropriate surrounding help yourself out
    3. When you start thinking about it and getting that feeling make yourself busy with something else. If you're in a home setting I strangely found Pinterest to be helpful lol. If at work engage yourself in something that will concentrate your mind.

    Do not suppress yourself go and have fun but contain it and control it when it isnt appropriate. That's my suggestion and what has helped me. I also must admit I imagine myself having an orgasm and it seems to help reduce the drive lol

    I have a high sex drive I'm always thinking about something that turns me on from the moment I wake until I go to sleep. Anything and everything turns me on to the point where I end in thinking to myself how the hell did I turn that into a fetish.

    That's funny. The more you think, the more you want and vice-versa. It's like a vicious circle, nothing wrong with that, is it?
