Dr Bracey believes the problem of libido loss is often confused with impotence. "Erectile dysfunction is due to either psychological or physiological problems, whereas loss of libido is really a lack of interest in sexual activity. It's the same with a lack of interest in eating. No matter how fantastic a meal may be you just wouldn't be interested".

There is a big difference between loss of interest and not physically being able to manage something. "When it comes to libido taking a plunge it can happen to a man regardless of age. It's a scenario often brought about through circumstance rather than the fact that the penis is ceasing to respond".
