Then you must imagine how sex would be for these people. Sex becomes some sort of task for people with depression. There are different articles, which sum up the symptoms of depression. Almost always you will see that a decreased libido is one of the symptoms in such articles. But how do you get someone with decreased libido in the mood for sex? On top of that, sex is a topic, which couples often fight about. One person wants more sex, the other person wants less. With many people with depression, actually even having sex is a task in itself.
