Sure: It's all related. Wrong setting, wrong person (even if you are alone), timing, too much on the mind, lack of sleep, fatigue, meds, alcohol, drugs, anxiety, depression, bad diet, hormonal changes (innate or brought on by stress), other factors can all play a role in desire (libido), and performance (including having an orgasm).
