How can lack of sexual activity affect an early and virgin a

Postby Vladimir97 » Mon Aug 02, 2021 12:57 pm

Hello, I have a question that has had me thinking for a while.
I'm 24 years old and throughout my life I've had hardly any sexual activity. I've only kissed a few people and the closest I got to an intercourse was so quick that I question if it could be considered sex.
It turns out, however, that I feel my libido is really high. I get aroused very easily, playing with food, toys and having to contain ejaculation when having intimacy with friends. I have even masturbated on the beach in daylight when there were little people around and even in my company's toilet.
I really feel that this lack of sex is bothering me, and it gets worse because I am rather picky when chosing someone to have some kind of intimacy with. So picky that I have been practically virgin for 24 years. Part of that is my resistance (I wouldn't call it insecurity) to just go on and have it with anyone that crosses my path. I look for a meaningful experience, and this sometimes holds me back. I do, though, resort to virtual sex sometimes, and I have been really inconvenient at times when insisting on people to do it.
Can this lack of sexual intercouse be part of my anxiety? I know a clinical evaluation should be much deeper, but I'm just wondering if a 24 year old could get some kind of trouble by holding off so much sexual desire and having little no none sexual activity.

Thanks in advance!

Going without sex does not create a problem. There are many people who have zero sexual activity for life. They are celibate.

Nuns and monks come to mind. They practice the discipline of celibacy. That takes effort.

You lack self discipline.

I agree, it's more on a discipline thing. I know people who don't have problems with not having sex or even masturbating.
