Tips For Tackling A Low Libido
When your libido is at a low ebb, it can seem like everyone else is having an amazing sex life, which just makes you feel even worse. These days, thankfully, there is a lot of focus on how important sex is to our overall health and sense of wellbeing. The downside of this is that it can make you question if you are normal when your appetite takes a bit of a downturn.
The answer is that you are completely normal, and this kind of ebb and flow happens to everybody at some point. It’s best to put to one side any pressure or negative emotions you feel around the issue, and ask objectively if you can pinpoint a cause.
One of the biggest lust busters is stress. Maybe you have returned to working in an office full time recently, and are exhausted from the commute, and having to deal with colleagues or customers face to face after months of Zoom calls. It may have been easy to fit sex into spare moments if both you and your partner were WFH, but now it’s not happening.
If this is the case, try and build up some anticipation by fixing up a ‘sex night’ with your partner, and sending them flirty texts throughout the day. Being apart from your other half can actually be beneficial in the long run, as even the closest couples need some independent experiences to stop boredom and complacency creeping in.
Spending some time exploring your body by yourself can also help to get you right back in the swing again. It is very easy now to buy a vibrator online, for example. They are a brilliant way of discovering what you truly enjoy, and making you feel more confident and comfortable in bed. Once you feel ready, you can also use sex toys with your partner.
