Giving a boost to your sex drive can work wonders for your sex life. With the use of the simple tips that follow, women can achieve a higher sex drive to enhance their sex lives.
The first thing that you should consider in achieving a higher sex drive is your diet. The amino acid, arginine, helps to boost the circulation of blood to the genitals; a delicious snack of pumpkin seeds, almonds and Brazil nuts will give you arginine and taste great. Chocolate contains phenethylamine, a chemical that is produced in the brain when we fall in love; just make sure that there is a high cocoa content to get the desired effect.
Any dish can be erotic if it is enjoyed with a touch of sensual pleasure. Oxytocin, the love hormone, is needed in large amounts in order to become sexually aroused. If you are stressed or overloading your brain, it very unlikely that your body will create oxytocin. Enjoying a meal with your lover with dimmed lighting and soft music can help to boost the production of the love hormone. If you are drinking some wine to relax, it is key to remember moderation as too much can make you more likely to engage in sexual activity but not enjoy it as much.
Another lifestyle change you can make to boost your sex drive is exercising on a regular basis. Aerobic are well suited and boost your stamina, help with your overall body image, raise and lighten your mood, and in the long run, increase your libido.
Concerns you have in regards to work, financial matters and family issues create stress that will affect your sex drive. Finding ways to better cope with stresses can make it easier for you to get in “the mood”. Having a brighter outlook on life, little things to make you happy, and an overall sense of well-being and happiness are essential to eliminating stress.
Strengthening your pelvic muscles with Kegel exercises greatly improve your awareness of the muscles involved with the pleasurable sexual sensations that boost your libido. In order to do Kegel exercises, you squeeze your pelvic muscles as if you were stopping the flow of urine; hold for five counts, then relax. Rinse and repeat. Performing this exercise numerous times a day is best.
Now let’s get to your actual relationship with your partner. There are some changes that should be made in order to create more emotional intimacy, which, more often than not, results in better sexual intimacy. We hear it all of the time, but communication with your partner is incredibly important. Conflicts and disagreements are a natural part of any relationship, but couples who argue and communicate in an open an honest way maintain a strong emotional connection and respect for one another, which results in better sex. You and your partner must communicate about your sexual desires; what you enjoy and what you don’t.
If there are some issues that you just can’t talk to your partner about, seeking counsel from a sex therapist or counsellor can really help in opening up channels of communication between the two of you. This includes education about sexual responses, certain techniques, and recommendations for reading materials and exercises. Sometimes, resorting to medical treatments can help you improve your sex drive. It is not necessary, but could help if you feel you have no other options. The first thing to keep in mind is to treat any underlying cause of a diminished sex drive. Get a checkup to make sure everything is in working order and that any medical treatments won’t interfere with illnesses or medications.
For some women, you’ll find that some form of estrogen therapy can help. This can be administered through the patch, pill, or gel that improve the brain function and mood aspects involved in sexual response. Even local estrogen therapy, in the forms of vaginal creams or suppositories, can help to increase blood flow to the vagina.
Sometimes, setting aside a time for intimacy can really help to boost your sex drive by making an intimacy a priority. Trying out a different position, location, or even a different time of day can be simple ways to spice up your sex life. Experimentation can bring back the spark to your sexual experiences.
With these easy tips, you can improve your sex drive in no time at all. It is best to try out the methods that are easily done without medical help; if all else fails, consult your doctor about the medical therapies that are suitable for you.
