Tips to Boost a Low Libido
Recently, I contributed to an article published on Healthination on the topic of how to boost female sexual desire. A lot of women, especially those in long-term relationships, experience lower sexual desire. In fact, low or absent sexual desire & interest is the most common sexual issue among women of all ages.
According to the British National Survey of Sexual Attitudes & Lifestyles (2003), 41% of women, ages 16-44 years old reported lack of interest in sex for the preceding month. There is also a strong correlation between low desire and menopausal/postmenopausal age. Low desire causes more distress among younger women than older, menopausal women.
Unlike male sexual issues such as erectile dysfunction, low sexual desire among women is a very complex issue because of two main reasons. One, female sexuality is much more intricate than male sexuality and two, low female sexual desire is usually a result of the combination of physical & emotional factors.
The main causes of low sexual desire among younger women are relational factors such as lack of emotional connection, trust or partner factors such as poor sexual techniques, rigid beliefs about sex. Mood instability such as anxiety, depression or low self-esteem could also result in low libido.
The author of the article did a fantastic job of putting together very practical tips from sex therapists and sex experts on how to boost low libido. The tips range from ruling out physical causes of low libido such as diabetes to engaging in more pressure-free touching, playfulness between partners and being in the moment with your partner by de-cluttering your mind.
