Am I frigid?
Posted on: 03/06/2004
i am 14 years old and im pretty sure im gay, for many years now i have been sexualy attracted to males and had errections over them. but recently i have got to a stage where i dont get errection over males or females, i think there is something wrong with me, do i suffer from ED or is it normal during puberty to go through a frigid stages and if so why has this frigidness lasted such a long time?
It is normal to have periods where your sexual response is decreased and it does not necessarily mean that there is anything wrong with you or that this means you are "frigid." Since you say this stage has been lasting for a long time, I recommend that you talk it over with your doctor to be reassured that it is nothing physical. Emotions have a great impact on sexual response, so you might also discuss if you have been especially stressed or worried recently. Also, if you have feelings of discomfort about being gay or how to handle your feelings, this could affect your sexual feelings.
