Talking Points from Dr. Cira
On Anger & Depression:

Why do people suffering from depression often get angry?

Sexual dysfunction is not uncommon. It is not surprising that with so many stressors in life, many of us have very little desire or energy for sex. We all know that sex can be a great way to reduce stress. The positive feelings associated with sex are largely due to emotional and physical relief caused by the release of endorphins.
