Boosting Sex Life Naturally

Libido levels fluctuate at different times in our lives. But, if you are not ready to hit the Viagra as yet and can make-do with some changes in your lifestyle, we would like to give you an easy, effective tip: start with your habits.

Check your Caffeine Intake

Caffeine affects the body just the way nicotine does. It has the ability to trigger erectile dysfunction by restricting the blood vessels. Should you be taking coffee first thing in the morning, make sure you do not keep sipping coffee more than twice throughout the day.

Wear a Pair of Socks in Bed

Just like men need their extremities to be warmed up, even women need some amount of warming up and the best place to start from is the feet. The warmer one’s feet are the longer and happier sex is. This has been researched and concluded by the University of Groningen. According to this study about half the couples failed to make it to climax because of cold feet. The success rate of this habit had shot up to 80 percent. The key is that the area of the brain that is associated with genital sensation is just next to the one that is associated with feelings in the feet.

Quit Smoking

Nicotine found in cigarettes destroys the nerves and arteries in the body. As a result, smoking causes damage to the blood vessels present in the most intimate parts of our body. Some of the dreadful effects of smoking on sex life include contraction of the penile tissue, restricted flow of blood to the penis, etc. Smoking cigarettes can in fact, lead to infertility in both men and women.

Sit in a Stinking Room

For longer and safer sex, sit in a room that is stinking of overflowing garbage outdoors or a broken sewage pipe. According to a study that was done at the University of Mexico, men and women who sat in a smelly room tended to have safer sex because of an innate disease-avoidance mechanism that sets in. This is a subconscious effort that we do not realise often times. End result? Reduced number of STIs, longer, safer sex.

Include Good Nutrition

To improve your sex life, make sure that you have an adequate intake of nutrition. For a good sex life, it is important to ensure that the three elements, namely, nerve function, hormonal levels and blood flow inside the pelvic area are balanced. So as to keep the system working in perfect order, a diet that is based on grain products, protein, complex carbohydrates and legumes is important.

Quit Cycling on Low-riding Handlebars

It has been pointed out by several studies that riding cycles for a long-distance can be bad for a man’s sex life; turns out it is bad for a woman too. Those women who like cycling on racing-style bikes that have a lower than saddle handlebar, tend to incur a loss of feeling in their genitals, as pointed out by a study at Texas A&M Health Science Center.

Drink Alcohol in Moderation

The scientists were right when they declared alcohol an aphrodisiac. But, you must listen to your dad also when he tells you to drink alcohol in moderation. Studies show that drinking one or two drinks can turn out to be fruitful for someone trying to heat things up in the bed. It works by making one overcome his/her sexual inhibitions. But then if you down too many pegs of alcohol, you might just end up having fewer erections in the long-term and a delayed ejaculation.

Maintain Oral Hygiene

This may seem strange and beyond belief. Nevertheless, it is an established fact in a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. The study pointed out that those people who neglect dental hygiene tend to be at least three times more likely to have erectile dysfunction compared with those who strictly keep their gums and teeth clean. Unflossed gums help bad bacteria breed, clogging the blood vessels and thereby, reducing blood supply to the important organs.

Go Easy with the Toys

You may have always thought that the sex toys you have are the best stimulants you can ever find, but they may actually be putting you off to sleep instead. There are certain sex toys that have dangerous levels of phthalates, industrial chemicals that are used to make plastic soft and easily mouldable to any shape. Exposure of the genitals to this chemical can lead to serious health problems, especially lower sperm count, lower levels of testosterone and even certain types of cancers.

Exercise Regularly

Exercise is known for a lot of health benefits and one of the lesser known benefits of it is a good sex life. Exercising improves circulation of blood throughout the body, thus keeping the cardiovascular system healthy. Exercising increases the level of endorphins being produced in the body. Besides, that a toned body makes one less conscious about his/her body image does not require any scientific proof.
