When sex is the last thing on your mind, you assume all of
your friends are going at it like rabbits, and wonder what the heck is wrong
with you. With sex being a human desire, and good for our wellness and emotional
connection to our partner, we all strive to have a juicy, healthy sex life.
However, according to the 2010 National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles,
the average woman aged between 16 and 44 has sex just four times a month.
Often women will lose interest in sex from time to time,
leading to confusion and arguments between both partners, and added stress as
you try and figure out what is going on.
Whether it be stress, age, family issues, or simply not
feeling as sexy as you once did, there are certain ways to combat the dry spell
and revive your sex life:
Eating the right food – It is important to
simply eat well and lead a healthy lifestyle (things like drugs and alcohol
will only make things worse!) There is lots of food said to increase your
libido naturally - think oysters, nuts and seeds, chocolate, strawberries -
possibly worth a try, and you could even try feeding each other some chocolate
covered strawberries to get in the mood (add some squirty cream for good
measure). Good food is helpful in boosting not only your sex drive but also
getting your energy levels higher inside the bedroom.
Getting enough sleep – I know, you’re thinking
“But I want to play, not sleep!”
however, trying to have decent sex when you’re sleep deprived is a waste of
time. It is important to get some rest, which can be helped with yoga and
meditation before bed, or natural and reliable supplements.
Exercising – It might take lot of motivation to
actually get yourself to that class/through the gym doors, but the benefits are
so worth it. Exercise is a sure way to reduce stress and cortisol levels, and
with it you will build strength, lose excess weight, and help improve your
self-image, all equating to confidence in the bedroom.
Another great tip is to increase the muscle
tone in the pelvic floor through Kegel exercises. They help strengthen the
muscles of the vagina, making way for a stronger, intense orgasm.
Keep calm and combat stress – Everyone is in the
same boat, we are all trying to juggle our work/family/social lives and
crumbling underneath the shiny surface. It is OK to say ‘no’ every now and
then, and take time to unwind after a day’s work. Identify the parts of your
life that are making you stressed and devise a plan, preferably with your
partner, of how to make things a little easier. Need him to wash the dishes
more? Want your parents-in-law to call before they turn up at your place?
Address your issues.
Keep well lubed – It could be hormones, age, or
stress (that again?) that has made your lower region uncooperative. As it’s
better down where it’s wetter, we recommend a water-based, natural feeling
lubricant that doesn’t interfere with oral play and heightens sexual pleasure
Have sex – OK don’t face-palm just yet, hear me
out. It could be that you and your partner are stuck in a sexual rut, and no
longer yearning for each other. It could be time for a sit down chat where you and
your partner are open about what you want and what kind of sex you would like
to enjoy. Little things will make a big difference when put into practice, and
it may bring you closer being able to talk about and improve your situation
together. Get experimenting with foreplay and reignite the spark, and bear in
mind that sex itself can actually be an exercise to increase your libido. As
you ignite sexual energy and flow, you may just decide you actually want to do
this more often!
