Libido by definition is the sexual desire that ignites the sex activities. Libido level corresponds to the level of sex hormones in the body with its peak at adolescent and gradually declines with age. Also, the stress of your day-to-day life can lower your libido and make the intimacy with your partner dead as a doornail. Decreased libido will cause a lack of sexual drive, difficulty becoming aroused, low sexual response, painful coitus and vagina dryness in ladies.
Furthermore, studies have shown that people who get enough sleep tend to have a high libido and sexy mood, their bedrooms lit-up! Now, that’s a reason to sleep more! Another thing that affects libido level is drugs. Some of the drugs that are used to treat diseases like depression, high blood pressure, HIV infection and birth control pills have shown to reduce libido as a side effect. If you’re on any medication and want to get freaky with your mate, discuss the drugs your taking with your doctor. Just make sure the side effects are not affecting your libido.
For a very long time, people consider alcohol as a sex stimulant. How true is this? Is it a myth or a fact? As opposed to many people’s views, it’s a myth that alcohol increases libido. Alcohol sedates your brain, reduces the brains function and lowers libido. It’s a sex drive killer rather than an enhancer
However, why do people have more sex when they are intoxicated? Alcohol inhibits the conscious mind and makes people open and gives people the balls to do things they wouldn’t otherwise do, sex being one of those things. As stated earlier, binging on alcohol will shut down your brain causing the reduction of libido. So the next time you’re at the bar with the intention of getting laid, don’t over do it, grab one or two drinks, and give yourself the opportunity of enjoying the sex!
