Unlock Your Libido
Libido is best described as a person’s physical wish to have sex. It is not connected to the actual desire for connection but is instead connected to how often a person is actually “in the mood.” Many couples find that their libidos do not match, with one partner wanting to have sex more often than the other. Too often, communication is not present, and the couple feels they are not compatible. This is not necessarily the case.
Another misconception is that a person’s libido is set in stone. Your libido can change on its own during different periods of your life. It can also be stimulated with a little effort on your part. Here are five ways you can help increase your libido.
It may seem counter-intuitive, but your body can’t function at its best, especially where hormones are concerned if you don’t get enough sleep. Getting the required amount of sleep your body needs on a regular basis will increase hormone production and your libido.
When your body is tense, it takes a great deal of energy to do anything. Your tense mood makes your body release chemicals that trigger your fight or flight response. This is not the ideal situation to get you in the mood for a night of love.
The more your body experiences sexual pleasure, the more it wants. If you’re going to increase your libido, try using a vibrator or other stimulating device and enjoy some solo pleasure. Or you could ask that sexy partner to join you.
While regular exercise helps release the “feel good” chemicals in your brain, exercising your internal sexual muscles helps strengthen them. This, in turn, creates an environment that makes you want sex more. To find these muscles, simply try stopping the stream of urine when you use the bathroom. These muscles are the “sex muscles” you want to strengthen. In time, you will be able to do this without waiting to have to use the bathroom.
No, not in food or alcohol. Even if you do not start out feeling like you want to have sex, when you begin with foreplay and build up slowly, you will often find that you get caught up in your partner’s mood and start enjoying yourself. The simple act of enjoying your experience will often open up the floodgates that are blocking your desire.
