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

  1. 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.

  1. b.  Engaging in masturbation excessively:

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


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.

  1. 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


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


Psychological conditions such as depression, anxiety, stress, and other mental

health issues can interfere heavily with sexual feelings, leading to erectile


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.

  1. 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.
