User avatar There are many reasons you may not enjoy sex.
Your partner and you should try to experiment different ways for you to become more comfortable to begin to enjoy sex.
Set the scene with lighting, candles, a massage.......start slowely. One day just give massages, the next time, try some touching, work your way up, do only what feels good and you enjoy.
Everyone has different libido, yours may just be lower than most, but with patience and caring, you can begin to enjoy sex with the right person.
