💋How Can ADHD Affect Sex Life in the Bedroom?

For many adults, sex is a significant part of our lives. Yet it's not often talked about how ADHD can impact our time in the bedroom!

ADHDers often struggle with maintaining focus. For our sex life, this can translate to...

  • Rushing foreplay

  • Difficulty reaching orgasm

  • Getting bored or distracted during sex

Due to hyperactivity, we may struggle to relax and get in the mood.


Sexual stimulation releases endorphins that helps to reduce the restlessness caused by our ADHD. This can lead some ADHDers to unknowingly seek sex more for this relief.


We may have a hyposexual drive due to sensory issues or low self esteem. Low sex drive can also be a side-effect of our stimulant medication.


Some sensations that feel good to our partner, may feel irritating, uncomfortable, or too intense to us.
