Does stress make you horny?

Hello so I am 24 and I am in college, I've noticed than whenever I am in a lot of stress or pressure I tend to feel horny and masturbate a lot when my boyfriend is not around, if he is around we just have sex... Is this because of the stress?

  • Eh...stress is a really weird phenomenon as well as a usually bad one...stress can manifest itself in virtually any direction...it could make one person want more sex and the next one less...one of the interesting things about guys...sometimes on here we discuss PE (cumming too soon) but we don't usually discuss that middle ground where a guy can get it up but cannot cum...lol...the guy that comes quickly usually sees his partner as hot...a guy that is not enamored of his woman might take a long time to cum..or might not be able to get it up at all..OR..he might view his partner as "hot" but is tired, stressed or on chemicals...speed comes to mind...if my woman is planning intercourse with me..will want to make sure that I have not taken any sudafed.../:/:/:

  • It's because sexual release is also stress release. You're not necessarily becoming horny but using masturbation and sex as a form of stress-reliever.

  • When I get stressed out I get in the mood for sex (has a way to relieve my pressure).

    So I guess, in a weird way it does put me in the mood for sex.

  • Sometimes, lol. It either totally increases or decreases MY sex drive, depending on the issue I guess. =P

  • I don't think I've ever felt that way because of stress... but, we're all different.

  • Yes it is both because of the streess and beause your horney sometime

  • When your body is stressed - everything can be more alive and more intense including sexual desire. Maybe that explains it.

    Either way - you sound like a lot of fun! :-)

  • Could be - I tend to do the same thing and the resulting endorphins and relaxation help with stress
