Most likely you will find a close connection with your lack of sexual desire and the fact that you do not enjoy sex. Furthermore you need to really explore if your boyfriend is really doing it for you. The fact that you feel that you cannot be open to your boyfriend to discuss you sexual frustrations and that you need to lie is not a good foundation for a long term relationship. I would strongly suggest that you seek the professional assistance of psychologist/sexologist.
