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.
Buy oysters and feed them to each other before intercourse. The Ask Men website notes that raw oysters are great aphrodisiacs for women and men alike. Just be sure that those oysters are clean, fresh and never eat them while you’re pregnant; the Mayo Clinic says expectant moms should not eat any type of raw or undercooked seafood or meat.
Exercise, exercise, exercise. You and your partner should each exercise regularly, performing activities like jogging or bicycling. Even walking is a great way to boost your sex drive and enhance your overall health, notes the Mayo Clinic. Also, you should regularly use Kegel exercises to strengthen your pelvic muscles. Clench the pelvic area as if you are trying to stop urinating. Release, and repeat these throughout your day. Kegels can help you feel more blood flow to the pelvic area, which potentially makes sex feel great even after a long day of work.
Smile more. Natural happiness and joy are great ways to enhance your sex drive, no matter what your age or gender.
Meditate or perform other stress-reduction activities, like yoga. Those women and gentlemen who “stress less” usually enjoy a much better sex drive than those who stay frazzled throughout the day, according to the Mayo Clinic.
Change it Up
Change sexual positions. The tried-and-true missionary just might not cut it anymore. Even a slight variation can amplify your sex drive and also likely your partner’s libido.
