Hello again Stacie,

Yes it's a pretty common but less talked about symptom. The last time I had DP, i was sexually deadened for 3-5 months. It was a struggle to get properly turned on in that time but not impossible. Right now my sex drive is back but i don't think about it much because of existential thoughts. People often just forget about sex when they have DP. its not really conducive for the body when it's in fight or flight

Sex has always felt dull and bland to me. In terms physical sensations at least. There were other aspects I enjoyed about sex, but physically it has always been lame. If I were to do it with the lights off and music on or something, there would be no point at all; I may even barely be able to tell that I’m having sex.

I lost my emotions and my libido following the intense seizures I experienced at age 17. As time passed, I got about 70% - 80% of my emotional capacity back, and I would guestimate

the same for my libido. I could get and maintain an erection, but it was not the same on the Rockwell scale as my erections prior to the seizures. I remember a girlfriend commenting

that it was a sign I didn't love her completely. Well, I'm sorry, honey. This might seem like it should have been a

really big deal, but I had a lot of other things to deal with at the time. If I had to guess, I would attribute the minor sexual dysfunction (I did later father 2 children) to the Vagus nerve - Temporal Lobe

conduit. It's been 45 years, and I doubt medical science knows any more about it than the day it happened. I think the brain - mind relation confuses and intimidates medical science in the same way

that the relationship between quantum and relativity intimidates physicists. There has to be a connection or guidelines for interaction....a unifying theory so to speak. But, no one is on to it as of yet.
