libido

 [lĭ-be´do, lĭ-bi´do] (L.)
1. sexual desire.
2. the psychic energy derived from instinctive biological drives; in early freudian theory it was restricted to the sexual drive, then expanded to include all expressions of love and pleasure, but the concept has evolved to include also the death instinct. freud postulated that libido development occurs in distinct stages: the oral stage, anal stage, and genital stage. Mental illnesses are therefore considered disturbances of libido development, such as regression to an earlier phase. jung proposed that although libido can be viewed according to the freudian pattern, it can also be desexualized and viewed as an undifferentiated energy that is at the basis of such mental processes as thinking, feeling, sensation, and intuition. adj., adj libid´inal.

Q. What are some ways to get an erection? Libido and sperm are OK. I have had a problem with depression for years. I have always had a strong libido and I find that my ED has been a factor in my depression. Sexual relationships have helped me deal with my depression. What a MIRACLE!
