For centuries, even millennia people been asking the same question “How can I improve my sex drive?” Well, ancient scripture such as Kama Sutra and the Chinese pillow books have documented extensively different practices and aphrodisiacs that are thought to increase a person’s sex drive.
The list is lengthy and includes such things as foods, perfumes, spices, medicines and even some recreational drugs. Spanish fly for instance which is the dried and powdered remains of the beetle, down in the Southern part of Europe has long been considered to be the ultimate aphrodisiac.
Today we often think of chocolate, oysters or even things like ginseng and other herbs as the libido boosters. But the truth of the matter is that we don’t really have any evidence to suggest that any of these things have any true aphrodisiac qualities.
But what we do know for sure that men and women reach the high degree of sexual libidos at different stages in life. Young men in their late teens and early twenties and woman usually between the ages of 30 and 40. And while it is true that out sex drive tends to decline as we get older most of us can expect to have very active sex lives well into out the sixties and seventies and eighties.
However, there are some basic common sense things that we should do to look after our bodies and to get better in touch with our sexual instincts.
Exercise is very important. Particularly endurance exercises like jogging, cycling, swimming, using a stepping machine not only the help to get you in better shape, but also at the end of exercise your adrenaline levels go down. Now, why is this important? Because when your adrenaline levels go down it makes you feel less stressed, less tense and put you into a more grounded receptive state.
You know with the stressful lifestyles that many of us have today we tend to over secrete adrenaline which can elevate blood pressure, heart rate, make muscles feel more tense and even kill our sexual instincts.So exercise is really important, and I endorse it.
But there are other things that you can do: meditation, listening to some soothing music, taking pills, enjoying a bubble bath or enjoying a nice oil massage from a person you have some intimacy with.
Yoga is also considered to be an effective way of reducing stress and getting in touch with your body as well. In fact, some forms of yoga like Kundalini and tantric yoga actually concentrate on increasing the flow of sexual energy.
Generally speaking there are some things you should really avoid such as cigarette smoking and drinking alcohol excessively. And you should know that having a diet that is high in saturated fat tends to clog arteries not only in your heart but as men get older it is likely to impact their performance.
Now there are many things you can do to improve your sex life with your partner at home. For instance, you may want to consider giving them a private fashion show or maybe writing them a love poem or a love song, or maybe breakfast in bed or nice rainy day picnic at home.
