Male Sex Drive Tips
There are many factors that can lead to a lack of sex drive in men. Stress has a lot to answer for but sometimes the cause can be nutritional deficiencies or feeling down or depressed. If you’re concerned, it is worth speaking to your doctor as there may be an underlying medical condition. However, it could be down to something as natural as the aging process, as hormones decline as we get older.
Getting the sex drive revving isn’t always easy, but there are things you can do to bring back your va va voom and keep yourself (and your other half) happy between the sheets. The best method is to focus on your entire body as a whole and begin taking some extra care to regain your sexy self.
Feed Your Body
Look at the foods you’ve been eating and your diet in general. Aim to increase the amount of foods that contain zinc, such as lamb, beef and nuts. Zinc is a mineral that increases the production of sperm and often recommended for couples trying to conceive. You’ll also find zinc in many aphrodisiacs like oysters.

Other foods to eat are eggs, cheese, fish, eggs and any foods that contain lots of protein and omega 3. By eating these foods you’re giving your brain a boost and helping it to transmit happy hormones such as dopamine and serotonin around your body. If you feel happier your mood will be given a lift and your sex drive is likely to get a kick in the right direction too.
Manage Your Stress
Cortisol is one of the stress hormones that will leave your libido lagging. Modern life is full of stress and it can be practically impossible to avoid stress, whether at work or at home. However, a few lifestyle changes, the introduction of exercise and/or meditation can decrease the amount of stress you experience and provide you with a release that reduces your stress levels and boost your libido. Another tip is to swap refined carbohydrates, which increase stress hormone production, with complex carbohydrates.
Bring the Fun Back into the Bedroom
Sex can get boring and this boredom can lead to a nonchalance in the bedroom, as a result the sex drive plummets, often for both parties. Working hard to find excitement both alone and with your partner increases interest and the sex drive isn’t far behind.
Think about how you’d like to spice things up, introduce male masturbation sex toys and couple’s toys into your sex life. Relax and have some fun with games, dressing up or romancing. Amazing things can happen if you work on improving the problems rather than ignoring them.
