You’re Bored With Sex
If you had to rank sleep and having sex with your partner, which of the two would sit higher? If your answer is sleep (and you're not that tired) chances are your sex drive might be in need of an L for libido booster-shot. Sure aphrodisiac foods might help increase your sexual desire in the bedroom, but there's more to a woman's libido than sharing a few chocolates over a glass of wine.
Sexologist and We-Vibe ambassador Dr Nikki Goldstein explains that for many years female sexual pleasure hasn't been given much thought, with a lot of the research going into men instead of women. But truth be told, nearly half the female population (43 percent) report a loss of sex drive or sexual dysfunction.
"There were many thoughts that woman didn't want sex after a certain point in life but it is that desire to want sex that is now the focus. Women are more complex than men and before we even get to the functionality of sexual intercourse we need to explore how our desire to be sexual can be kept alive. Sex for women is now more than just procreation so it's important we help woman enjoy and want to enjoy sex longer," says Dr Goldstein.
So, aside from a spicy food-induced tummy upset, these things might be the culprits behind your no-mojo sex drive.
