Men avoiding sex due to stress: Experts

May 05, 2008 13:56 IST

Men are increasingly going off sex due to stress, depression and the inability to talk about their problems, experts have claimed.

A team at relationship counselling service Relate has reported a whopping 40 per cent increase in the number of lazy blokes, admitting that, despite being physically able to have sex, they are not interested.

'Men used to come to us with impotence but Viagra has sorted some of that problem. What we have is a lot of men who say, as women did in the fifties: I can have sex, but I don't want to. It's not rewarding. Such complaints were unheard of ten years ago. They tend to be men in their thirties, forties and fifties and married. It is a serious issue.

'It counts as a psychosexual dysfunction, rather than just a relationship problem, because these men haven't simply gone off their partner but off sex altogether,' the Daily Mail quoted Peter Bell of Relate as saying.

According to Prof Michael King of the Royal Free and University College Medical School in London [Images], depression might be the problem.

'Men are most likely to suffer depression between the ages of 30 and 50. One of the explanations is that men are less able to talk about their problems than women, or express their emotions,' he said.

I think.....the best medecine to beat stress is to have a sound sleep.........in the short term..................and in the long term...take a break from work and go for a vacation.
