Lack of Libido – How Can Tantric Therapy Help?
Libido is an energetic charge that has its origins in sexuality as a whole. Many people think that sexuality is located only in the genitals, which is not true.
Libido is an energy that makes individuals seek the fulfillment of their basic needs, such as hunger, for example, and also all forms of pleasure.
Thus, part of the libido is repressed or destroyed through social repressive mechanisms, part is shifted to other human acts like studying, doing art, working or other activities that we deem important throughout our lives, and a last part is available for sexual pleasure.
Libido is the energy that moves the human being to relate to objects, to the environment or to other people of the same sex or the opposite sex. If it were not for the libido, the human being would not initiate its relation with the world and would not value it.
It is this energy that ensures that children begin to play, to move around to explore the reality around them. Libido also means limits, to have the notion of the boundaries around us, to recognize what is forbidden, what is dangerous, or what is acceptable, what is free.
The ability to channel the libido to the outside world is fundamental to the balance of the human being. Problems in this channeling can lead to failures in socialization, such as autism, self-assault, compulsive masturbation, and other behavioral disorders.
In ordinary language, libido can be understood as “will” and to better understand this concept we can use our everyday expressions: “I am not in the mood”; “Without will there is no solution”. These forms of expression signal the importance of libido in all our actions. Libido is a term that means will and desire.
Lack of libido in women is related to frigidity or insensitivity to sex-based stimuli. Many diseases, including mental and psychosomatic, may be related to lack or loss of libido, such as depression, anorexia, cirrhosis, hemochromatosis, hypogonadism and others.
On the other hand, there are diseases that result in an excessive increase in libido, such as obsessions or OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder), bipolar disorder, hyperthyroidism and syphilis. Some medications and many drugs also cause changes in libido. A pathological increase in libido is also known as sex addiction or nymphomania, or sexual compulsion.
In the Common Metamorphosis, we recommend that people who suffer from actions brought about by the increase or decrease of the libido that go through the process of sensory reeducation through the Deva Nishok Method, where pleasure and affection are explored consciously and with a non- sexual, opening the ways of mobilizing and expanding sexual energy through your body to an energetic apex known as Hipergasm.
It is therapeutic, a process of harmonization and healing, which has no sexual connotation.
