The secrets those battling depression want you to know about their sex life.

Sex can be either alluring or downright horrifying. It has the power to make us feel beautiful, it gives us that comfort we all crave and leaves us with an overall euphoric feeling.

Depression, however can give you all the reverse effects while having (or even just thinking about) sex — and can leave you feeling a range of emotions.

Those with depression might yearn for sex in a bold attempt to get out of their funk, or want absolutely nothing to do with any sort of intimacy. Sometimes sex acts as a mood booster for those suffering from depression. 

People on Whisper (an app that allows users to send messages anonymously) confessed what it’s like to have sex while battling depression, and here’s what a few of them had to say:

1. When your sex drive doesn't exist.

2. Or when it does... but it's sporadic 

3. When you believe sex is the answer... 

4. When it's leaving you confused AF...

  5. The intentions are to make you feel better... and nothing more

6. When you just want to feel loved.

7. When all you want is to reach the Big-O 

8. When it's literally ruining all your relationships...

9. Whe it becomes and escape into a better world...

10. When you won't tell the ones you love how you really feel...

11. When what you need is right in front of you!

12. When it all becomes too much to take in...

13. When sex is really the only thing you need...

14. Whe it becomes your escape method...

15. and that's all you really want/need...

16. You want it, but can't find it...

17. When you thing it's what you need, but it's actually not...

18. and your fear gets in the way of it all...

19. When all you crave is that euphoric state.

20. and even if it's only for a short time...
