Superb Opinion

  • Yes but it’s a bit of a big black hole.

    when there is some light, then yes sex helps.

    the darker it gets, sex becomes less effective.

    when it’s pitch black and dark, then sex then becomes dangerous.

    sex is fine when it’s purely physical, however when someone has depression, PTSD etc, then it’s more emotional and emotional sex has a very dangerous element.

    I am not a nice person when I am in that dark place, I become very emotionally detached, which for me is dangerous.

    So yes at some levels sex helps but it’s really important that both understand it’s limitations.

    this is particularly true where the background for the depression is a abuse, physical or emotional, here it can simply rip the other person apart.

    So yes but mental health is a huge biggy and sex does really fit in with it, and can be therapy, via role play etc,

Most Helpful Guy

  • Nothing beats stress better than a good friend or significant person having sex with you. It's relieving and spirits heightening.
    Of course a good sexion would fix exhaustion and a feeling of inadequacy. Unless those are deeply rooted.

Most Helpful Girls

  • definitely and blowjobs always make me feel better... giving a guy one makes me feel good especially when he cums in my mouth... i love that feeling.

  • Yes or a good online friends with benefits

  • Absolutely though, it doesn't always lead to healthy choices.

  • Yeah, always.

  • Frequently. Sex will actually help alleviate symptoms of depression almost as well as many drugs.

  • Sometimes, I want sex when I'm down, and the good feelings help.

  • Yeah it feels good.

  • Guys have to be upbeat and confidant to have sex, being depressed for a guy usually also means not being able to date , which increases his depression which leads to less confidence which makes dating impossible and they get caught without a way out.

    It's one reason men are tired of the dating game and are starting to avoid women.

    • MGTOW

  • Sometimes yeah

  • Yeah totally. But other times I just feel like my kitty curled up and died. All depends on how bad the depression is.

    • Wow! That's deep

  • Yes, and I hope to give some relief sex tonight. She had a real bad day at work, and is taking a nice hot bubble bath now. Hopefully she can calm down a little before she's ready for bed. My dick is already erect just thinking about it.

  • I don't think of it as relief sex but sometimes it is nice to know that somebody cares about me.

  • I've needed relief sex for the last 5 years. 😔 Hell, I'd settle for a kiss and a cuddle.

  • No, being depressed isn't helped by orgasms, drugs, food, drinks, or other non intellectual things.

    Only thing that turns my bad moods off is figuring out a solution to the thing that is bugging me.

  • Doesn't masturbating help?
    Why put yourself at risk for emotion's sake?

  • Yes definitely a great if temporary release

  • Lol! I do too! It is the weirdest thing to actually cash in on though because I always get to that point that I am no longer depressed because I am too turned on but still feel like I should act depressed.

  • That's the same reason you chose to lose your virginity. Because of feelings.

    If you keep this up, you will become a sex addict.

    • If I was really that crazy about it don’t you think I would’ve given it up when I was younger? Most would say yes. I had a lot of self control to wait till I was 22

    • And yet you did it with a rando just because you were horny and because you wanted revenge on your ex. That's acting with emotions, my friend. That's what I'm trying to tell you. I'm not trying to make you feel bad; it's just something to think about.

  • May be. Yes

  • Yes... I miss my partner when traveling for a long time so having sex with someone else makes me feel better

    • Whore.

    • You ain't no whore you just need relief. You miss your partner. He will probably feel bad he wasn't there to do what you needed. Still he can't get mad at you for getting some love.

  • Yeah to mostly get my mind off whatever is up.
