4 tips to save your sex life with your partner

Do you easily get limp during or right after intercourse?

Well, your daily habits have got a lot to do with this issue.

Some habits can lead to low libido and low desire to engage in intercourse, thus lowering the passion level in your relationship.

It is imperative for you to identify these habits, and rectify them at the earliest to save your relationship from drowning into dullness and dissatisfaction from either partner.

The following are some of the things that might make you limp:

a.   Not nurturing your libido sufficiently:

 

Have you been noticing a considerable fall in your sex drive of late?

 

It can be attributed to low libido, which in turn is often the outcome of poor dietary choices.

 

Make sure you add ample aphrodisiacs in your diet such as, oysters, dark chocolates, bananas, strawberries, yoghurt, etc. which are rich in zinc, magnesium and other minerals which help in raising one’s sex drive.

 

b.  Engaging in masturbation excessively:

 

Too much of self-stimulation in a day can bring about fatigue and other health problems.

 

It is not advisable to indulge in masturbation more than twice or thrice in a day; otherwise, over-masturbation can lead to a limp or flaccid penis during intercourse and also reduced sexual drive.

 c.   Increase in insulin levels:

 

If you consume too much sugar during the day, it can result in spiked insulin (blood

sugar levels) in your body. 

 

Consequently, you will feel more lethargic.

 

Recent studies and researches have also brought to light that in men, insulin raises the level of ‘oestrogen’, leading to low libido and in more severe cases, erectile dysfunction.

 

In this regard, it is essential to know in detail about erectile dysfunction. 

 

To put it in simple terms, erectile dysfunction is the inability to get and maintain

an erection firm enough for intercourse.

 

Having troubles with erection once in a while is hardly alarming; however, if you have been facing issues in this regard consistently, make sure you discuss it with a medical practitioner, without treating it as a taboo or a cause of embarrassment.

 

Erectile dysfunction can affect your self-confidence and lead to relationship problems: Common physical causes include heart disease, clogged blood vessels, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, Parkinson’s disease, and so on.

 

It is also interesting to note that the brain plays an instrumental role in triggering the series of events that cause an erection, which begins with feelings of sexual arousal. 

 

Psychological conditions such as depression, anxiety, stress, and other mental health issues can interfere heavily with sexual feelings, leading to erectile dysfunction.

 

After all, one needs to remember that sexual arousal is a complex process involving the brain, muscles and blood vessels.

 

Other risk factors that can contribute to erectile dysfunction include, medical conditions (particularly diabetes or heart conditions), tobacco use, being overweight, drug and alcohol use, injuries, medications (such as antidepressants,

antihistamines, etc.), and so on.

 

Another issue commonly faced by men which can wreak havoc in your sex life is- premature ejaculation, which is, when the man ejaculates faster than he or his partner would like, during sex.

 

It is often a problem with men who experience erectile dysfunction. Since an erection goes away after ejaculation, it often becomes difficult to

identify whether the problem is premature ejaculation or erectile dysfunction.

 

Medical experts believe that the latter should be treated first. Premature ejaculation may go away by itself once erectile dysfunction is cured.

 

D. Stress:

If you experience stress beyond a particular extent, it might leave you limp as your sexual performance is also linked to your psychological wellness.

 

Under such circumstances, sex hardly acts as a stress-reliever, and rather, on the other hand, feels more like a liability.

 

This, in turn, causes issues related to erection, or you may not be able to achieve an orgasm.

 

If you are facing something similar, do consult a doctor and discuss your concerns freely instead of treating this as a hush-hush matter.

 

After all, sexual wellness is part and parcel of our overall well-being, and it should not be neglected at any cost.
