Final Answer :
D
Explanation :
Male hypoactive sexual desire is characterized by a persistent and recurrent lack or absence of sexual fantasies and desire for sexual activity, as well as decreased initiation of sexual activity and/or receptiveness to sexual activity when it is initiated by a partner. Option A refers to difficulty having an orgasm, which is not necessarily related to a lack of desire. Option B refers to exhaustion and overexertion, which can cause physical fatigue but is not related to a lack of sexual desire. Option C refers to sexual obsession, which is not the same as hypoactive sexual desire disorder.
