Funny. When a woman's sex drive decreases, as long as she's not with a partner who does want to have sex, she's not usuallyt bothered by her lack of libido.

It is NOT a sign of good health for a 54 year old man to have no libido. And if you've never been to a doctor, how would you know whether or not you have a medical issue that is contributing to this? I have "known" a couple of 54 year old men with plenty of drive - I'm currently married to one!

It could be that you have low testosterone levels, which could be treated. It could be that you have an underlying physical condition, which needs to be treated. Loss of libido might not be the worst consequence of that untreated condition!
Depression, too, often leads to loss of libido.

If youre healthy its not normal! If youve been with 100s of women as you stated you need to go get checked out! Not only for STDs which could cause problems but youre 54, you need a full blood work panel done! Need to be checked for everything! At 54 you can look and feel fit, but you could have all kinds of health problems and one of them could be causing this! I know many who were in their early 50d who dropped dead of a heart attack and they were considered very fit!

GET TO A DOCTOR

Want to be 19 again.
You will never feel 19 again, even with drugs. Get to a doctor. Go to a clinic if you dont have insurance. You need a full work up. You said you are 54. Its time to get yourself checked out. As far as sex drive goes, it could be any number of things. See a doctor.

It's metabolic. Until you can get a workup....

Read Dr Joel Fuhrman: Eat to Live on how to eat a diet of nutrient dense foods. So funny we need a book for that.

Or watch him on youtube.

STOP all processed foods. Crap in boxes and bags. Hormonal imbalance foods like animal stuff like CHEESE.

No non-food foods. No flours like they use for bread and pizza. If you eat grains make them WHOLE GRAINS like oatmeal and limit them to one or two cups per day NOT your main food.

GREENS AND VEGS ARE THE MAIN MEAL. With a cup of beans at least.

NOTHING that didn't grow out of the ground and try and eat two pounds of greens and vegetables per day. RAW and cooked. 1 TBS of flaxseed MEAL. 1 oz of nuts and seeds. Very important to get your Omega 3 in order versus too much omega 6 because that's how "good eaters" still have heart attacks and strokes.

Bet you also have a glucose problem and that's deadly. You can go get a diabetic glucose meter and check it out.

THEN take supplements derived from foods while you're still getting used to eating REAL food: Garden of Life brand.

Food be thy medicine and medicine be thy food. An ancient truth.

Don't drink or use drugs.

The word drug includes SUGARS.

Watch Austin Powers and see how to get your mojo (and the chicks) back. But seriously, a lot of it is in the brain. The brain rules the body, so start there. Good health, vitamins, exercise, and fresh air are all important too. Different/better music? Stop reading or listening to depressing news and crap? Gotta hit it on multiple levels.

For one, there are places to do annual checkup for cash. Just search for such place and you'll find it.
For two, sounds like your heart may have some congested little arteries; please, find your way to figure how to do stress test. One as such, now sleeps in our other room. Are you smoker, by any chance? Were you on some recreational drugs, or so? And, please, don't look so hard for the hunting opportunities, because you may be screened as sex addict or sex offender. If it's meant to be there for you and you are healthy, which I tend to doubt, it will happen. What was your goal in life: to have a wife or partner by you or to keep scratching tallies.
I am positive, you know your answer.
Guy, our family friend, at your age ended up 6 deep down by trying to boost his sex drive with viagra. His wife wasn't good enough anymore, so he wanted to explore and live freely with other woman of choice.
Try to practice at fitness places, and if you are gasping for air, your heart needs attention. In order for it to be up, there needs to be something functional to hold it up. Only healthy heart is capable of it.

Your issue is emotional. There is some feeling that you had back in the days when you had more sexual interest that you don't have currently and you miss it. I know most men hate to hear this, as they like to pretend that men are not really emotional. But if you honestly investigate your own experience, you will realize this is simply not true.

Back when you had a sex drive...did you feel more 'masculine'? Did you feel more invincible? Did you feel less fear than you do now? Did you feel like the world was full of possibilities? Did life seem more exciting?

If you start looking at the feelings and emotions that came along with your sex drive...f you find out what those were, while you may or may not get your sexual drive back, you will certainly have, or come ever closer to, the satisfaction that you're actually seeking. Or conversely, you will lose the current dissatisfaction that you feel. You will be guided into action that will by aligned with the feelings you want to feel...whatever those are, whether it be a healthier lifestyle, or going to the right places to meet the right people, etc.
