For centuries, Chinese and Brazilian herbal medicine have revered several types of natural remedies designed to boost female sexuality, according to both MedlinePlus and Discovery Health. While no herb is a guaranteed cure-all for sexual difficulties, sometimes drinking a cup of tea with a special remedy can enhance the blood flow to all parts of the body and increase sexual sensations and desire. But keep in mind that pregnant women, nursing mothers and women taking medication should not ingest herbs without talking to a doctor first.
You might be tired after a long day, but you still want to make love with your partner, especially if you are hoping to conceive a child. While prescription drugs, such as Viagra, have a number of risks and aren't appropriate for most couples, natural herbal remedies can potentially help enhance sexuality and overall energy, according to Discovery Health. Keep in mind that pregnant and nursing women or anyone taking medication should not ingest herbs or supplements without first speaking to a doctor.
If you are not feeling particularly sexy after having children, you are not alone. Patricia Koch, Ph.D., tells "Good Housekeeping Magazine" that as many as 67 percent of women report a low sex drive at some point in their lives. A loss of libido can stem from a variety of sources--physical, hormonal and psychological. Though you may care less whether you ever have sex with your partner again, sex really is an important part of romantic relationships. You may have to work hard to get your groove back.
How do you keep it going? How do you keep the passion alive? How do you make the time? Now with the return of all our favorite TV shows, exhaustion from the kids, stress from work, our hubby’s exhaustion from work, sex can kinda feel like our youth…a fading memory. So how do you, in the words of Dr. Ruth, make time for pleasure?
While many people pay attention to the impact that the foods they eat will play on their waistline, few consider the sexual ramifications of their dietary choices. If you are looking to ramp up your sex life--or ensure that your already bold sex life continues to stay on course--consider upping your consumption of foods that are connected to sensuality. From dietary elements that increase key hormones to foods that are simply sensual in texture, there are an array of foods from which you can select when trying to add some sex enhancement into your diet.
Whether you are suffering from a lower-than-usual libido or just want to amp up your sex drive for a special weekend getaway, you can safely use a number of natural remedies to increase your sex drive, according to the Mayo Clinic and MSN Health. Whether you are willing to use foods, exercises or add natural sexual changes to your sensual lifestyle, you can often safely enjoy an improved libido at almost any age. Be sure to stay away from over-the-counter remedies called "potions"; these treatments can do more harm than good.
Sometimes, men and women alike can benefit from herbal remedies that naturally increase sexual desire and ability, according to both Talk Sex with Sue Johanson and Discovery Health. But herbs are never a substitute for good overall health habits, including eating properly and avoiding use of tobacco. Also, some herbs may interact with prescription and over-the-counter medications, and thus shouldn't be ingested without careful consideration.
Married couples often struggle with finding the time, energy and desire to have sex. From taking care of the kids to busy work schedules, couples often put sex on the back burner. A marriage with no sex is destined to experience tension, especially if one partner is in the mood, while the other constantly rejects his sexual desires. Sex therapy, provided by a trained counselor, can help couples find ways to reignite their passion and enjoy a healthy sex life.
Sex drive in men can fluctuate, causing many men to notice a decrease in their desire for sex. Like women, men can experience conditions that may temporarily reduce their libido. Your mate's lack of interest may cause you to feel concern and frustration. Many conditions resolve over time, allowing your mate to return to his previous level of sexual interest. Helping your mate find a cure for his lagging sexual appetite requires determining the underlying cause of his disinterest.
Women and men alike may worry about just how long sexual intercourse lasts, according to both the Men's Health and the Ask Men websites. Most men, however, can only actually engage in intercourse for about five to 10 minutes. Trying exercises that strengthen the overall body and mind as well as the pubic regions can prove beneficial to enhancing sexual ability among men and women, according to MayoClinic.com.
