Low-key sexual desire? Here’s how to embrace it

@iravakhitova

Sexual desire, the “enchanting” touch of life. Emotional. Magical. Transcendental. For everyone is a different way of feeling and conception. Should we see low-key sexual desire as a problem? No! People’s sexual desires naturally change over the years, especially women. Those changes coincide with the beginning or end of a relationship or major life changes, such as pregnancy, menopause, or illness. Some medications used for mood disorders also can cause low sex drive. So, let’s say it is a common challenge among all people. Sexual desire is fascinating, rich, complex, and messy. This is why a lot of people find it hard to embrace.

Check if you could find yourself as a low-key for sexual desire:

  •            You may have no interest in any type of sexual activity, including masturbation.

  •            Never or only rarely having sexual fantasies.

  •            Being concerned by your lack of sexual activity or fantasies. 

How to embrace low-key sexual desire?

Phyllis Greenberger, MSW, president of the Society for Women’s Health Research, says more women report sexual conditions than men, but research and treatment for women’s sexual problems still lag.

A loss of sexual desire is caused by a compound of physical and psychological factors. It usually requires more than one treatment approach to fix the problem.

Sex therapy.

Sex therapy is one of the best ways to embrace your sexual desires and maintain a healthy relationship. Sexual dysfunction affects both couples and should be discussed together or individually with a mental health professional. 

Physical activity and sleep

All the topics that are mentioned above have a higher effect on sexual desire. People who consume a Mediterranean diet have fewer sexual problems. Exercising helps improve sexual desire. So many women describe fatigue as a factor for their low desire, and this is strongly related to the lack of sleep. While it may seem a bit hard to change our lifestyle to eat well, move often, rest, stop smoking, and moderate our substance use. These are all important factors we can change to grow desirable sexual experiences.

Natural supplements

Certain factors worsen low libido. It is strongly related to stress, hormonal imbalance, lack of sleep, vitamin and mineral deficiency. Can natural supplements help to treat this condition? It is not scientifically proven, but doctors nowadays suggest consuming a dietary supplement. 

While everyone might be looking for the magical pill to boost sex drive, it turns out that taking the optimal compound of daily vitamins for your profile is the best way to treat it. B vitamins, magnesium, iron, and vitamin D help improve overall energy and, by extension, libido.

Vitamin D3, especially, can improve the production of sex hormones in both men and women, according to Calloway Cook, founder of herbal supplement company Illuminate Labs.
