Frigidity refers to an unwillingness to have sexual relations and one needs to consider carefully whether or not this is a pathological situation. It is neither right nor wrong to have a high or low sex drive and discussion is essential to establish whether or not frigidity is actually a problem. Social pressure nowadays encourages young adults to have sexual relations at an ever-decreasing age. Nature did not intend us to have an interest nor indulge in sexual intercourse until we were in our mid- to late teens and therefore it is important to differentiate between the absence of our natural sexual drive and frigidity.
