After a while into the trp mentality did you feel a decrease in libido?

Reddit View
May 19, 2020

I ve been on trp for 3 years already. When I first discovered TRP I was almost a virgin but my libido was high and I was ready to fuck any girl that I saw.

Right now, I dont really feel like it. Sometimes a plate text me to come and fuck and I just ignore the text, or sometimes I go and fuck them because I dont want to lose a plate, but I dont really feel like getting the same pleasure as when I was younger.

I dont really chase sex anymore and I feel that s not ok. Even though I have easy access to sex, I dont do it as often as one year ago.

What do you think guys? Did any of you went through this?

We want what we can't have. If sex ain't available, we desperately want it, but if we got a sustainable supply of it, it's not as valuable anymore.

Simple law of supply and demand.

[–]zeekt1222 points23 points  (0 children) | Copy

Literally lmao

[–]Frebaz0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

well, yes and no. you’re correct but testosterone is different. what you’re talking about is when you want to fuck but you don’t have an erection let’s say. But when you wake up with the wood and want to fuck any hole next to you. That small urge is testosterone based.

To wrap it up, yes because you have sex now, it feels less appealing, but hitting the gym, eating well... will flow more testosterone, which will inevitably increase libido.

Also for point one try to go out of your comfort zone, are your plates 6? try to get 7s, 7 then 8 and so on. A no from time to time will make it more challenging, thus something nice to look forward to.

[–]Piruluk43 points44 points  (26 children) | Copy

Yeah, I had the greatest drive before turning 20 years old, it was extreme, all I could think about sex and doing all the time, and the pleasure was so high.

Did notice a little drop after turning 20, but nothing major, still had a great libido.

After turning 25 my libido really started to go down, and now as 30+ years old, I barely have any interest in, dont get me wrong, I get morning wood still, I mean I do function very well still, but simply I just dont want to do it. Even when doing it , I feel bored, the pleasure got so boring, its barely does anything for me anymore and yes the turning point was discovering the trp mentality. But I guess this is normal for getting older, we arent that young anymore, so cant match the teen levels which was INSANE, I wish I could feel like that.

Could be my fault though since I dont lift and generally dont care about fitness, but otherwise I dont have heatlh problems, but the desire simply isnt there, and even coming feels so empty and boring. What I would give to be a teen, to experience that pleasure again.

So very good of you to bring this topic up, I cant figure whats wrong with me, and thinking since weeks, why is this.

[–]marsbar7712 points13 points  (0 children) | Copy

Sounds like your test is low maybe

[–]AsianAway48 points49 points  (15 children) | Copy

You should lift. I can literally feel the test after heavy leg days.

[–]LucidBananna7 points8 points  (13 children) | Copy

Lol how can you feel the test? I take steroids and it’s like no mental difference

[–]cumberger5 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

you can’t fee the test but exerting your cns after a heavy leg day and a pwo gives a euphoric feeling. it’s not “feeling test” lol. test base might make you feel it but that’s it

[–]L2diy-4 points-3 points  (11 children) | Copy

Steroids increase estrogen production as well. That’s why

[–]LucidBananna16 points17 points  (9 children) | Copy

You’re a moron lol test in general increases estrogen. Estrogen is created by Aromatization the more test the more estrogen. People take a.i’s to lower there estrogen while on steroids. Not that you always need to estrogen is good and needed. Unless you’re having bad estrogen sides high estrogen results in more gains and usually better sex drive.

[–]Musicgoon4 points5 points  (0 children) | Copy

I may add that estrogen is also good for collagen and reduces inflammation and joint pain. You need a balance of estrogen in your body.

[–]i-am-the-prize0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Don’t know if I “feel test” after lifting, but sex immediately post work out is usually the best. Both for me and my LTR. I prefer to work our alone.... my “me time” and all that, but once every 2 weeks or so I agree to a morning gym session with couples shower after and sex to follow. We are both pumped up and it’s a solid (ahem) good time.

[–]btrpb2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

Dude I'm 42 and still love to smash. Women aren't the sole focus of my life, but I enjoy pinning my plates down and fucking their brains out. Woke up this morning and my cock was throbbing hard.

You've got a long way to go. Time to optimise your health.

[–]Soj0urn3r1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

I’m 36 and have been experiencing the same drop in drive and pleasure you describe. I wanted my teen drive back and tried many supplements. The two things that have helped get it back to just about its full glory were:

  1. Romans Testosterone Support - The first month is $20, then $35 thereafter. I highly recommend. This greatly increased my energy levels and desire to fuck. If you only add one thing to your diet, it should be this.

  2. GNC’s Horny Goat Weed - $28 for 2 months. This makes the sense of touch feel better. Takes a few days to start working but once it’s in your system it gives that tingly itch down below that makes you NEED to touch it (think teenager you trying to sleep without touching it). Walmart/Walgreens brands aren’t as effective.

And as everyone else says, a little workout really does go a long way to increase your sense of core strength and manliness. I do yoga and light lifting and it helps a lot with energy levels and confidence.

Good luck to you.

[–]shyrix0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Im not sure i agree with this. Wait til your midlife crisis hits and you smash a shitton of 20 year olds again. That will get you moving.

[–]TheLegionnaire00[S] 0 points1 point  (2 children) | Copy

Yeah, I have the exact same feeling. Sex really seems boring right now.

[–]1rad_dynamic-3 points-2 points  (1 child) | Copy

Are you fapping / use porn?

Bro im 20 and my sexual drive is only getting stronger

[–]TheLegionnaire00[S] 3 points4 points  (0 children) | Copy

Nope, not interested even in that.

[–]rockyp320 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Do u fap ? Do no fap it’ll come back

[–]Chilael0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Question: if you set an alarm, and get up as soon is it goes on, do you still get a morning wood?

[–]Cash420made7 points8 points  (0 children) | Copy

Don’t fap, workout and focus on your goals...maybe it’s because I have an established roster of women I can have sex with when I’m free but these 3 things keep me going. I’m 27 and my sex drive isn’t as high as it was when I was 18-24 with a stable gf...but I’m more focused, more energetic and make every woman who chooses me, crave more. I will say, I smoke weed everyday and have been doing so since I was 17. Personally I believe I would be better off if I didn’t smoke, but I maintain a balanced diet and workout regimen. I’m lazy, but it’s not hard...treat everyday like fight club...there’s a gun to your head and you get shot if you don’t wake up everyday and do things to make you better. Changed my life

[–]JohnNoomer25 points26 points  (1 child) | Copy

I think you would definitely be less needy, but if you’ve got a lot of plates maybe you should explore your sexuality, see what you’re into.

For me sex is about power and ego, I like pushing girls to their limits and seeing what they’ll do for me.

I really like rough shit, I think every guy that’s honest with themselves does. I’m not into ropes and restraints, but restricting their movement using my own hands is awesome.

Honestly, sex completely changed for me the last year and I enjoy it now more than ever, I see it as masturbationPLUS.

It’s hard to explain, but this is what made it more enjoyable:

When I was in doggy fucking this girl once, I was completely removed from my head/train of thought and I was fully in my body when I just saw her as an object that I could pull on and off my dick. I used her to masturbate. Sex completely changed after that for me, when I completely stopped giving a fuck on her orgasm and just fully was in the moment, having sex completely for myself.

[–]antioch948 points9 points  (0 children) | Copy

I know what you mean. I had a fwb in my Teens. We met each other on the weekends in the forest. She was a very submissive and shy girl. I fucked her brains out and i could last longer as usual. I always had to try hard to cum. My ex i had oneitis for was different. She was sexually experienced and i always felt the need to let her cum. She was the one who changed positions not me. She made me cum faster because i wasnt in control of the whole situation..

I think being dominant and fcking a girl who truly desires you+ is submissive has massive effect on your sexlive/drive. We must see her as an " Object " as you said. Not as completely Equal as society tells us " .

[–]signsoflife6205 points6 points  (0 children) | Copy

I was lucky enough to find TRP before I got in an LTR. Before trp I had slept around in college a bit. Not too savage but I was at a pretty decent body count for my age. TRP helped me screen girls that could potentially be a gf even though I wasn’t even looking for a relationship. In engineering school I ended up meeting someone right before graduating that didn’t really have red flags and had a good home. Shes open to girls too and even though I know AWALT she is actually a healthy girl and we have a healthy relationship.

I did notice though that TRP kind of killed the mystery for me in chasing girls. I almost see girls like confused puppies/dogs now. My libido with my gf has gone down for sure. I usually turn her down for sex. We’ve talked about threesomes and I honestly feel almost lazy to actually do it.

I thought about making a post on this sub so it’s funny to see this post.

I’m 24 now. We still have sex but not everyday like we used to, mostly cause of me not wanting to. I don’t really have anything intelligent to say for your situation but I definitely think it’s a thing. I find more happiness in my health like eating right and exercising now. And i really treasure my friendships. Girls aren’t the main focus of my life anymore. If my gf were to leave me i know I would be okay. I’ll just find another confused puppy after screening out the millions of damaged ones. Or just stay single. TRP has freed me of finding validation in sleeping with lots of woman. there’s more to being a man.

[–]deezkneezplease2 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

are your plates ugly?

[–]1MrTheFalcon1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

Are you interested in other pursuits? If so, that's fine. Pursue your passions, and become a better man. The right people (women included) will find you, and you'll be interested in those people. However, if you're not interested in anything, that's a problem because you're not growing.

[–]cockkksucker1 point2 points  (0 children) | Copy

lift baby

[–]grandorder1232 points3 points  (0 children) | Copy

I 100% recommend TRT. Supplementing low dosages of test has shown to lower risk of heart disease and has countless benefits for any man 30+

[–]shyrix0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

I wouldnt say that. More boredom and knowing u can get it anytime. Side effect of doing your own thing and not needing women for much except sex whenever

[–]fukenhimer0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Quite opposite honestly.

Lifting actually increases my libido and now that I’m in great shape, the level of women I attract has also increased.

[–]1InformalCriticism0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Yes. Knowledge of female nature decreases the desire to be with women, depending on how deep into the social narrative you believed the lies.

You've returned to factory setting, don't feel bad about it.

[–]TheBlockedUser0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

It's not a decrease in libido per say but an increase in your investment to make yourself better.

Sex doesn't make you better.

[–]i-am-the-prize0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

don't confuse decreased libido with a change in validation (pathways).

if you used to fuck to prove to yourself and/or to her you "still had it" or "were a man" chances are, if you look deep inside humbly, some of your past copious fucking - some sessions may have been driven by that wrong/shallow motivator.

Now, when you fuck purely because you want to fuck, not because you feel the need to fuck for non sexual reasons, you may find yourself wanting to fuck less.

ironically, when you get OI and NGAF and do NOT seek validation from women, they may end up wanting to fuck you more... go figure.

so reflect, was all of your past drive truly biological (sexual)? or was some of it ego?

the bright side: quality over quantity, and when you get someone who turns you on, it'll be back with a vengeance.

[–]manfrombelow0 points1 point  (0 children) | Copy

Your libido is NOT decreased, it just gets STABLIZED.

Being redpilled means we think, act and live with RATIONALITY, not hamster-liked urges and swings of pure fucking EMOTIONS - which is good. Fucking good.

[–]E9er-1 points0 points  (0 children) | Copy

sometimes! when i was BP i used to fuck girls for passion and love and all the basics movie stuff. now i just fuck them because my body needs sex and variety. (not as much for love/desire) with that been said the passion and full enjoyment can be absent at times so it can take some time getting into the mood and because so you struggle the. they’ll ask what’s wrong and i mutter shut up you might as well be irrelevant. but the trade off is acceptable as you trade some vulnerability for emotionless sex which won’t bite you in the ass when she could have played you. so you do your own thing. what i have tended to notice is been spontaneously helps with the eroticism.

[–]Musicgoon-3 points-2 points  (0 children) | Copy

No. More success with a variety of women = more drive for sex. Now I totally stopped fapping. No need for that. But you might have a testosterone deficiency or antidepressants or depression itself can cause drive issues.

You should talk to a doctor. Yep is about self improvement. And self improvement doesn't kill sex drive.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
