What is sex drive? Tips to combat low libido
What is sex drive? How does your mind, diet, and health affect it? And how can you boost yours today?
How to increase sex drive holistically
Also known as libido, sex drive is a colloquial term that describes your overall sexual drive or desire for sex, either solo or with a partner.
Optimize your health to increase your sex drive
The World Health Organization states that "sexual health is a state of physical, emotional, mental, and social well-being relating to sexuality. Modern physicians recognize the importance of libido as one of the key indicators of general health and quality of life."
As you take steps towards increasing your sex drive, your overall health will benefit as well.
Wondering why your sex drive is so high?
Bear in mind that age and life-phases play an important role in increased sex drive. Your libido is at its peak during your teens and twenties. With age, testosterone levels slowly decline (about 1% a year from age 30). This doesn't mean, however, that you can't have great sex as you get older. Take good care of yourself and you'll have a high sex drive well into old age.
How can you know if you have an increased sex drive?
There is no one-fits-all formula for measuring an increased sex drive, and there's no such thing as "normal". What may feel completely fine to you could be too high or low for another man. Everybody is different.
Since there's no standard goal when it comes to increasing your sex drive, you need to find your own happy place. As long as you're satisfied, all is well.
