Specifically, the 2 mentioned actor Andrew Garfield‘s determination to refrain from sex for six months in preparation for his position within the 2016 historic drama “Silence.”

“Oh, years,” Barrymore countered.

Between raising her children, operating her personal speak present, enjoying the rain, and establishing herself as a businesswoman, it is clear Barrymore is already busy sufficient with a full, significant life.

For one, there are such a lot of components that affect libido, from drugs, hormones, and menopause to psychological well being, stress, and continual situations, based on the Mayo Clinic

. But a low intercourse drive additionally would not have to have any underlying causes and even be seen as an issue to “repair.” Everyone has completely different sexual wants and needs, and nobody’s preferences are any higher or worse than anybody else’s.

All that is to say that there is nothing shameful, unusual, or bizarre about going some time with out intercourse — partnered, solo, group, no matter — whether or not deliberately or in any other case. So to reply your query, Drew: there’s nothing improper with you in any respect.
