Here are the most effective ways to give your sex drive a boost...
How to Increase Female Libido with Fitness
One of the best ways to boost your sex drive is with the rush following a vigorous work-out. Your brain releases endorphins that both relax and improve your mood when you exercise. Regular cardio sessions especially up your sex drive while your fitness level also affects how sexy you feel. The fitter you are, the more body confident you can expect to feel. This makes you more attractive to your partner too.
It's also vital that you get your vaginal muscles in shape by practising Kegels – or pelvic floor exercises – daily. (To isolate your PC muscles, stop halfway through urinating.) The best way to exercise them is to squeeze gently and hold for five seconds. Relax and repeat 25 times. Do this twice a day, every day. It will improve the quality of your orgasms no end.
How to Increase Female Libido with Foods
If you really want to go into how to increase female libido, start with stabilising your serotonin levels. If you have excess amounts of serotonin, also known as the ‘happy hormone’, it will cause sedation and a decrease in sex drive. A deficiency on the other hand, is associated with low moods, which doesn't make for a high sex drive either. Create a good balance and spark your sexual appetite by eating small meals containing lots of protein and carbs for example lean meats, deep-green vegetables, and brightly colored fruits for sexual vitality. These foods enhance blood flow to your heart and sex organs, which will help you become aroused, increase lubrication, and dramatically increase your chances for an orgasm.
It's also a good idea to stock up on shellfish, bananas, eggs, chocolate, nuts and garlic. These are all excellent ‘sex’ foods as they contain all the vital vitamins and minerals you require for a healthy reproductive systems ~ not to mention libido boosting dopamine.
And speaking of vitamins and minerals... Vitamin C, B complex and magnesium are important to help your body combat libido-sapping stress. It also balances blood-sugar levels and for an added bonus, keeps the vagina lubricated.
An example of a sexy meal would be shrimp cocktail followed by a grilled meat or fish entree. Eliminate heavy sauces and gravy and instead load up on a green salad, sauteed spinach, or green beans as a side. For a sexy dessert, feed each other fresh berries.
How to Increase Female Libido by Getting in the Mood
Sometimes you have to pull out all the stops to create passion between the sheets. Go the extra mile with beautiful lingerie (he'll love it and you'll feel supersexy), light a few candles, or try a different location. Get organized with a few surprises from a sex shop and indulge in a touch fest. A slow, full-body massage is always a winner ~ especially if you use essential oils, such as ylang ylang, jasmine, and sandalwood to stimulate libido. Massage also releases dopamine, the body’s natural pleasure chemical. Also make sure to try stimulating gels that are designed to enhance the journey to orgasm by creating a warm, tingling sensation in the genital area.
If all else fails...
If you've made a serious effort with fitness and diet, but still feel low in the libido department, visit your general practitioner for advice on possible libido-boosting treatments. It is always a good idea to get a thorough health check to exclude any medical reasons for low sex drive.
