lack of sex drive here's why

You’re a guy, so you already know that most guys think about sex a lot. (Though it’s a total myth that dudes think about sex every seven seconds — that’d be about 8,000 times per day assuming you’re awake for 16 hours.)

Money woes, a pile of TPS reports on your desk, the constant stress of not knowing what insanely hot woman Derek Jeter will be regularly sleeping with next.

Ironically, however, one thing that won’t relax you is having …
