London, May 5 : Those who said that 'men only have sex on their mind', might have to munch their own words, for now experts have claimed that a large fraction of men today find too much trouble with having sex.
Four out of ten men who approach relationship counsellors for help have confessed that though they are still physically able to make love, they just don't want to be bothered about sex.
"Men used to come to us with impotence but Viagra has sorted that. What we have is a lot of men who say, as women did in the 50s, 'I can have sex, but I don't want to. It's not rewarding'," the Mirror quoted Peter Bell, of Relate, as saying.
In fact, fifty percent of men he sees complain of a total lack of libido, something completely unheard of 10 years back. And all these men are married and are between the ages of 30-50.
One of his client, a 43-year-old graphic designer from Newcastle, told him: "I still love my wife but I don't want to make love with her any more."
While high rates of depression in men aged 30-50 can be considered as one of the reasons for such a trend, this phenomenon can also be attributed to long working hours and stress.
"People can find it impossible to switch off and relax," said Professor Cary Cooper, head of British Association of Counselling.
