Yes, it's normal not to be having a lot of sex if you're quarantined with your partner

Simply put, you and your partner just may not be in the mood right now, and, given the circumstances, that’s understandable. As Rebecca Alvarez Story, sexologist and founder of Bloomi, explains, a lowered sex drive is a typical reaction to stress and a pandemic can most certainly exacerbate this issue. “Not only are people hearing anxiety-provoking news, but some folks are having trouble getting food, experiencing job losses, and other survival-related stressors that will push sex to take more of a backseat,” she tells HelloGiggles.
