In brief: Low libido

SyedM760 ~ low libido is caused by many things.
Idiopathic~ just the way you are.depression, anxiety, stress, early adolescent imprinting, mis-directed or understood sexuality, religion and so on. NOT excessive masturbation! This just gives you friction burns/rash on your penis. LOW Testosterone can cause low libido, but in investigating low libido this is probably least often the cause. cont.

In brief: Libido

Is dependent on psychological well-being and hormones.
Masturbation can take away the need temporarily. If you do it a lot, you must have then high libido to need it that much. And yes doing it frequently takes away the need at that time. Low testosterone is treatable with supplementation as needed depending on level. Go talk to your doctor, get tested as necessary and be reassured. Good luck.
