Experience tells you that there’s nothing like having an astonishing orgasm. However, both your mind and body do not want to seem to cooperate in taking you to that peak of frenzy — your libido has gone downhill!
Stress and all sorts of bad habits could be the reason why you no longer seem to want to enjoy some romping in the bedroom. The good news is you can do something about those sex saboteurs, and the single most important step that you should take initially is to know what they are.
Continue reading if you want your astonishing sex drive driven back into your life. The following are some of the things that could be responsible why your sexual appetite has gone out of sight:
Drinking Too Much Booze
It’s a fact that alcohol can bring down your inhibitions. But did you know that too much of it can also cause the collapse of your libido? Have too much of your favorite alcoholic beverage and you will find yourself wanting some action in dreamland rather than in pleasureland. Always remember that alcohol is a depressant, and it can put a brake on a lot of things.
Popping Certain Pills in Your Mouth
Certainly, you can say “goodbye” to your libido if you’re on antidepressants. Aside from antidepressants, there are also many other drugs out there that can keep you from wanting some intercourse. Some of them include antihistamines, birth control pills and high blood pressure drugs. If you are taking any of these medications and you feel that your sex drive is no longer alive and kicking, let your doctor know about it.
Spending Too Much Time with Your Friends
Of course it’s always fun to hang out with your best buds. However, it can make your libido take a backseat. Spending lots of time with your friends can lead to exhaustion, fatigue and, most importantly, lack of sensual moments with your other half. It’s high time that you assess your priorities if it seems like you are laughing more with your friends on the way to the cinema rather than moaning your way to a mind-blowing orgasm.
Going Online in Bed
There are only a couple of things that you should do in the bedroom — sleep and sex. Anything that involves your work or social media should not be allowed within the confines of a room in which you should be doing some lovemaking if you’re not catching some Z’s. Switch off that tablet or laptop and let loose the sexual beast in you.
You’re Not Getting Enough Sleep
As earlier mentioned, the bedroom is also meant for sleeping — something which you should get enough of if you want to welcome your long lost libido back into your life. You should strive to enjoy 7 to 8 hours of sleep per night. Otherwise, so many things will get sacrificed, such as your mental functioning, physical performance and definitely your libido. Oh, sleep deprivation also makes you gain weight, which is another libido saboteur as you will find out in the following.
Packing Excess Pounds
Being overweight can cause your libido to take a nosedive in more ways than one. First, it disrupts normal hormone balance within you that could make your sexual appetite virtually nonexistent. Second, certain complications of obesity such as diabetes can take away your libido. Last but not least, knowing that you don’t look good because of those unwanted pounds can certainly mess up your sex life. So lose weight if you want to gain more orgasms.
