“You are an animal in bed” is something that every man wants to hear but not everyone gets the honor. That being said, men can roughly be classified into two categories: ‘I like sex’ and “I’m unable to like sex.” If you belong to the latter, you’re not alone. Low testosterone levels affect almost 13 million men globally and lead them to a sad, sad climax.
The magical element that comes into play here is libido. Libido is defined as a person’s overall sexual drive or desire for sexual activity. With age, men usually experience a gradual decrease in their libido but in some cases, low levels of libido kick in early.
The reasons for low libido can include:
- lack of physical activity
- lack of interest in one's partner, etc.
However, every problem has a solution and we are here with 8 ways on how you can tackle your problem of low libido:
Netflix and Chill: Stress is one of the main reasons for decreased libido in men and therefore, in this context, you need to literally just ‘chill’. Take out time for yourself and indulge in activities of leisure.
Have a physical relationship with yourself: We tend to undermine the power of exercise and that’s why our body bails on us in bed. Staying fit and physically active is one of the key elements of a healthy libido.
Eat the right things: You are what you eat. Aphrodisiacs like dark chocolate, strawberries, figs, bananas, and avocados are meant to serve the purpose of boosting your libido.
Spend hours in bed: Sleep deprivation is directly related to low sex drive. It is recommended that you sleep for at least 7-8 hours every night and when you do, it will reflect on all the other activities that you do in the bedroom. C'mon, you know very well what we mean!
Talk it out: If you think that you’re having issues in your relationship, it is ideal to talk them out with your partner or else it will take a massive toll on your sexual desire which will, in turn, make your sex life miserable.
Blow away the smoke.. for good: Smoking can have adverse effects on your lungs and if that’s not enough for you to quit, let us tell you that it can reduce your libido miserably. That is because smoking leads to irregular blood circulation to the sex organs which makes it hard to maintain an erection or perform in bed.
Spice up your sex life: Sexual intercourse is quite a simple act but there are a million ways to do it. Try out new and naughty tricks and techniques with your partner and in no time, both your libido and your partner will thank you for it.
Bring in a third person: No no, it’s not what you think it is. If nothing seems to be going your way, it is recommended that you consult an expert and know the exact causes of your reduced sex drive.
