The Factors Impeding Your Sexual Des

The Factors Impeding Your Sexual Desire

When I was an adolescent, I always used to think about dull sex lives of my parents.

It kind of raised curiosity that why would they sleep separately without having to show sexual urge.

Moreover, when I was peaking my sexual desires, it always felt that how could anyone get bored with sex despite having a partner.

I’d always breed the desire for intimate relationships and promise myself that I’d never get out of sexual touch.

It’s been many years since the promise, and now I realize that sex is a quantifiable entity which we can’t conduct daily.

That’s because our sexual desire or libido has a significant role to play in our lives.

Without libido, a human body can’t get sexual stimulation which we once promised ourselves to maintain throughout our lives.

The number of factors affects sexual desire, and getting over them might help us to restore our promises to ourselves.

Let’s address them to learn more about libido.

  • Physical factors

Sex is best enjoyed when you are physically fit.

The physical ailment and chronic disorders such as diabetic neuropathy, cardiovascular issues, hypo or hyperthyroidism to name a few, alter the sex hormone in the body, and reduce the overall sexual desire.

Physical tiredness and exhaustion also add to the loss of sex drive.

For converting “not tonight honey, I am drained” to “let’s make love baby,” you shall introduce exercise, meditation, and adequate rest before adult playtime.

  • Psychological factors

Psychological factors are as dangerous as physical factors when it comes to affecting the libido.

A fair number of people suffer from stress and depression which ultimately come down to the diminishing sex life.

Anxiety has earned a lousy stature in releasing depressive hormones— cortisol— the hormone which interferes with the sex hormone leading to the fallen sex desire.

The depressive hormone also disturbs the sleep cycle worsening the situation.

With less sleep and depressive symptoms, a person is more likely to avert sex because it would demand energy (which the person lags).

It’s not easy to overthrow the psychological factors.

You should look forward to sharing all the details with your partner and try to find out the optimal solution which could work for both of you.

Psychological counseling and therapies also assist in opening up the issues, and there’s no better way to fend off depression than to talk.

  • Masturbation beyond limits

Masturbation is good for sexual health as long as it’s restricted within limits.

Excessive pornography trains your brain to reap pleasure out of the virtual sexual indulgence.

Wanking off beyond the limits might bring in tiredness, and you might actually underperform while having actual sex sessions.

Frequent masturbation reduces the sexual function, and if your partner is addicted to it, you must talk to bring the practice to an end.

  • The dying affection

A lot of relationships die a slow death due to faltering communication and lack of affection.

Warmth and passion among couples decide the intensity of sexual desire.

But factors like over-familiarity of the person, or gradual decrease in passion or affection towards the person lead to the dipping sexual desire.

There’s no particular solution to this.

If there’s no passion and affection among the partners, they should either talk out straight and choose their ways or look for alternative methods like roleplay or couples pornography to enhance their libidos.

If it doesn’t work, there’s no point in sticking to each other as long as it’s not hurting anyone’s presence.

Understanding the sex drive is as difficult as understanding the big bang theory. Plenty of reasons may lead to averting sex; however, there’s no proper technique to measure what’s in the head of the naysayer.
