Instead, Schweitzer believes that PCD is the result of multiple factors of psychological experience, including how we emotionally attach to others. Dr Miriam Forbes, a psychology and emotional health researcher from Macquarie University, believes that PCD is an experience that can also result from cultural pressures.
Forbes notes that people have a variety of responses to sex, "including the negative emotions about guilt and shame and disgust, which can come from ideas about sex". In women, PCD has shown modest associations with childhood sexual abuse as well as general psychological distress, although the melancholy experienced during the refractory period has been found to be mostly unrelated to other forms of emotional distress in life because of its short-lived, inexplicable nature. In the QUT study, psychological distress was found to be strongly associated with male experiences of PCD and childhood sexual abuse showed a small association.
However, Schweitzer doesn't believe that these results were statistically significant enough to comment on. The authors also found suggestions that sexual dysfunction, such as erectile dysfunction and premature ejaculation, are related to PCD. Forbes believes that PCD may be, at least in part, simply a reflection of an individual's broader emotional experience. Contact Elfy Scott at elfy.
