15 Things That Increase Your Libido

Men and women are different when it comes to their libidos, but both can suffer from having a low libido and wanting to increase it.
In this article, we will look at 15 things that can increase sex drive and how you can start enjoying a healthier, mature sex life with your partner today.

15 THINGS THAT INCREASE YOUR LIBIDO

Before we talk about how to increase your libido with one or more of these things on our list, let’s discuss what libido is. According to a research paper published in the European Menopause Journal ‘Libido is a comprehensive and yet elusive word that indicates basic human mental states ‘ and their biological counterparts’ involved in the beginning of sexual behavior. It has three main roots: biological, motivational-affective and cognitive.’ To increase libido, we can focus on mental, biological, or emotional factors, or we can try to affect all three of these factors.

1. REMEMBER THE BEST SEX YOU EVER HAD

Memories of the good times that you’ve had, either with your current partner, or with someone else, can make you desire sex and increase your libido.

2. LOVE YOURSELF FIRST

Loving others intimately involves an emotional vulnerability. Often, we may feel unable to give love (or sex) to another person unless we feel loveable first.

3. EAT PINE NUTS

Pine nuts help your body to produce nitric oxide, which dilates blood vessels. Getting your blood flowing warms the body and feels like a rush of adrenaline, which feels exciting. Pair up with your partner and your libido should jump into action.

4. GET MORE ZINC

Zinc is essential for the production of testosterone, which is important for men’s libido. Researchers say that testosterone is not only important for men to maintain an erection, but is also important for increasing libido.
The scientists say ‘The role of sex hormones in the sexuality of men is now becoming clearer. Androgens are necessary for normal sexual appetite and for ejaculation. Erectile mechanisms, providing that appropriate erotic stimuli are available, are probably not androgen dependent.’ The researchers also say the testosterone levels required for increasing your libido probably varies from person to person.

5. AVOID SOY PRODUCTS

For women who are post-menopausal, estrogen levels decrease leading to pain and dryness during intercourse. Soy products contain phytoestrogen which block the estrogen receptors in the in the body. Blocked estrogen receptors means that your body can’t absorb the normal estrogen.

6. THINK SEXY THOUGHTS

Your brain is an important part of your libido. Give some thought to the things that turn you on about your partner or an attractive person. What do you love about their body and the way that they please you?

7. CHOOSE TO FEEL INTENSE LOVE

The emotional component of your libido is something you can control by making a decision to feel love and to release any negative emotions.

8. OPEN UP

Honest communication is important for establishing intimacy with your partner. When you feel free to be open, you trust more, which makes you more likely to be receptive to your partner’s advances.

9. GIVE YOUR LIBIDO AS MUCH THOUGHT AS YOUR APPETITE

When you are careful about our health, you pay attention to how hungry we really are before we eat. We can do the same thing with our sex drive.
Check in with yourself and rate your sex drive on a scale of 1 to 10 in the morning, afternoon and evening. Knowing your pattern of sex.

10. JUST SAY YES, EVEN IF YOU AREN’T IN THE MOOD

There are very few times that having sex with your partner, whom you love, is bad. There may be times when sex is less than great, like when you are sick or not feeling your best, but the act of sex can help you bond with your partner in an intimate way. This bond leads you to desire more and more intimacy, thus increasing your libido.

11. MAKE BELIEVE YOU JUST MET YOUR PARTNER

Pretending to be a brand new couple is a way to heighten the excitement, anticipation, and arousal for both of you.

12. WATCH A SEXY MOVIE

Viewing nude bodies doing pleasurable things to each other is sure to make you think of doing those things with your partner. Ask your partner what they enjoy watching and find a movie that you can enjoy together.

13. USE ALL YOUR SENSES

So many people close their eyes during foreplay, for example while kissing, and they may be missing out on an intimate moment where making eye contact can bring them more intense arousal than keeping their eyes closed.
Breathe in through your nose to use your sense of smell, listen for your partner’s moans, feel their fingers and hands, and taste the salt from their skin.

14. MAKE DIRTY JOKES

Laughter is a great way to create a bond with your partner and dirty jokes between the two of you are a good way to rev up your libido. Joking with each other about your cute names that you use when you are alone is just one way to amp up your desire.

15. TOUCH MORE

Just a touch on your partner’s shoulder, hand, or back is enough to get them thinking of sex.

El sabor oral

SUSANA, LA NIÑA DEL CÍBER

A falta de ordenador en casa, constantemente me veía asediado por la necesidad de irme a un cibercafé para poder navegar por internet y echar un vistazo a mi correo. La verdad era que sí tenía ordenador(si es que a aquel armatoste se le podía llamar así), pero tan viejo e inútil que apenas funcionaba, y comprarme uno nuevo me salía muy caro, por lo que de vez en cuando acudía a algún que otro cíber de la ciudad para satisfacer mis necesidades informáticas. En una de esas veces me fui a uno que acababa de abrir recientemente. El sitio no pintaba mal: los ordenadores tenían al lado como tablones para dar privacidad a los clientes y que no se fisgasen entre ellos. Había 12 terminales(ó 12 ordenadores, como se prefiera) donde poder conectarse, pero eso solo en la parte de abajo, ya que el cíber tenía un primer piso con unos 8 ó 10 más. A pesar de no estar ubicado en una calle céntrica, al lugar le auguraba un buen futuro con semejantes recursos. Tras saber el prec…
