Have you been feeling unenthusiastic in the bedroom lately? We’ve got some tips to help you out.
There is a wide variety of factors which can lead to a decrease in your libido, such as stress, exhaustion, anti-depressants, the menopause and contraception, to name but a few. Whatever the cause, it can be very frustrating and demoralising for both you and your partner, so we’ve come up with some natural ways to help get your sex drive back on track.
1. Red wine
A glass of red wine a day keeps a loss of libido at bay. Well, not quite, but according to a study in The Journal of Sexual Medicine, women who drank a glass of red wine daily reported higher levels of sexual desire and vaginal lubrication compared to those who occasionally sipped any kind of alcohol or those who didn’t drink at all.
Researchers believe that the high levels of the antioxidant polyphenols found in red wine may help blood vessels to widen which in turn can increase blood flow to key arousal areas. However, you should stick to one glass as more than that might extinguish your libido.
