is it weird to always want sex?

Sex on your mind: It's not particularly unusual or weird, but it has its drawbacks. This state of mind is most common in teenagers when their sexual hormones are newly flowing and these experiences are new. As you mature from there, the urge to have a deep and serious relationship, one that will include sex, tends to become more important. If you're older and don't care about relationships, that's weird.

Not Weird At All: As humans we are sexual beings. Sex is one of our strongest primitive drives. With that said, it is only natural that one would want to always have sex. If we acted upon the desire to always have sex, society would begin to unravel. Along with our strong desire for sex we also have the ability to reason and control our actions. Perhaps we want always want it, but there is a time and place.

No, but a challenge!: We all have a drive 2have sex, just as we all have a drive 2eat. But one person's drive sex will B stronger or weaker than another's, just like one person's appetite 4food will B stronger or weaker than another's. What's more, sex drive, just like appetite 4food, will fluctuate 4 many reasons (age, time since last sex or meal, emotional state, etc.). What satisfies 4 U may B too much 4 another!

How can I communicate to my partner that sex doesnt interest me?

Openly and honestly: Sex is the ultimate in intimacy for both partners. What one does affects the other. Each must know the other emotionally, physically, mentally, and intimately. Tell the partner you have issues with desire and see if there are things that can be better to re-interest you in sex. There may be medical issues. Get a good check up and needed testing. Counselling may be needed. Good luck!

A 36-year-old member asked:
Is it normal to have an aa sponsor of the opposite sex?

It's irrelevant;: Whether your sponsor is the same or opposite sex, or if the sponsor's sex changes halfway through your recovery, makes zero difference. You both have the same relationship with alcohol - you've both had enough. That's all that matters.

Sex after disability: Depends on what his disability is. Also the brain plays a major part in all aspects of sex so how he is mentally has major effects on your sex life.

Good Sexual Life?: If I am misreading your question please ask again.
I think it is very common to wonder if we are doing sex right. Many of us do not talk to others about our sexual lives, and thus worry needlessly about it. Many couples learn however to experiment, to read books or watch movies and they try out various activities.
I often recommend the book "the joy of sex" as a guide to the norms of sexuality.
