Is Depression Impacting Your Sex Life Too?

Nov 01, 2019

We have been told that low libido is a women’s problem.

We assume that women have more issues with libido than men, we assume that women are to blame for their low libido, and we make light of it and brush it off as “normal” or expected.

But it isn’t.

Sex isn’t just about the penetration and the orgasm…especially for women. It is about the connection, the intimacy and the safety. And depression can attack these areas, and more – like communication, self-esteem, feeling unworthy or undeserving – making sex seem like an unconquerable mountain to climb.

Here are some cold, hard facts about mood and libido that you need to hear:

  1. Women with low sexual desire are far more likely to experience symptoms of depression than women who do not experience low sexual desire.
  2. Depression is twice as common in women than men.
  3. Mood disorders and depression effect libido. And the medications that are prescribed to treat these disorders effect libido too.

 Why isn’t anyone talking about this? 

Because women are not supposed to worry about libido, they are supposed to accept a life of mediocre interest in sex and intimacy.

We are stuck in a downward spiral.

And it is SO easy to stay stuck in this cycle.

That’s why I am here.

And why I am so passionate to help women break the depression-low libido cycle.

So we can call enjoy life, experience pleasure and live healthier and happier lives.


Here is my number 1 tip for combatting the cycle of depression and low libido in your life:

  1. Increase the dopamine!

Dopamine is a neurotransmitter that is responsible for motivation and the drive to overcome new challenges. Too little dopamine can mean exhaustion, mood disorders, inability to focus and low libido. 

Boosting production of dopamine will help improve mood AND improve libido…which in turn help to improve each other.

Some ways you can increase your dopamine levels:

  • Exercising
  • Socializing
  • Shopping
  • Have an orgasm ;)

It can take a lot of work and a lot of support to break these cycles. That is why I have developed The Pleasure Principals. A 12-week coaching program designed to do exactly that, break the cycle of mood and low libido so you can live your best and happiest, most pleasure-filled life.

You deserve it.
