Lack of libido, simply called lack of sex drive, is common in women. But men too, although in rare cases, suffer from a drop in their sex drive at some point in their life.
It is often assumed that men’s interest in sex diminishes as they get older, but that is not always the case. There are several pharmaceutical companies that offer medications to treat declining libido in men. Those medications are either ineffective or are too expensive.
Is you libido nosedived? Does it need a boost but you are not ready to try those expensive prescription medications? Try one or more of these 10 natural tips to help pep up your flagging libido.
A healthy libido needs a healthy body to express it. Brisk walk, work-out and jogging are some of the physical activities that will increase your energy levels, and give you a sense of accomplishment and vitality. Your physical confidence will do wonders in the bedroom.
Share your fantasies with partner
Marriage therapists regard fantasies as a good thing. Explore some of the newer erotic literature and films that include male/female fantasies. Share your sexual fantasies with your partner and ask her about her fantasies. Sharing and exploring fantasies is an important part of keeping the passion alive in a love relationship.
Focus on the whole body
For men sexuality tends to be just focused on the sexual organs. While making love, focus on your partner’s entire body-from head to toe. Tease and touch, and take detours along the entire body. This will certainly add new pleasure to your sexual satisfaction
Set the mood
Take time to set your mood before lovemaking. Spend intimate time together. Read a sex book with your partner, go through the pictures, and laugh together. Focus on the feelings, sensations, and the pleasure you experienced during past exciting lovemaking sessions to re-evoke those feelings again. A glass of red wine, not more than that, can increase your desire to be back under the sheets.
Sexy foods to enhance libido
There are some libido-injecting super-foods that can regulate levels of sex hormones and get you in the mood for sex. Oysters, avocados, celery, chocolate and red wine are some of the foods packed with mood-enhancing chemicals. These foods increase blood flow to the genitals of both men and women and promote a healthy sex life.
Even if you’re taking a natural approach to enhance your sex drive, it still might be a good idea to consult a doctor about your lack of libido. There’s no need to be embarrassed about your loss of sex drive at all.
