    Just because someone is depressed it doesn't mean they have no libido. Even though some antidepressant medication can repress the libido a bit. As for whether frequent sex makes a person look younger, there is a sense of truth to that. When a person orgasms, it releases feel good chemicals that help with mood and affect. It is a great stress reliever and therefore people often have a 'glow' after the act, it's also good for immunity and headaches. Being sexually frustrated can have an opposite effect, causing stress and anxieity. Have you heard about Cognitive Behavioural Therapy? CBT is great for anxiety.
