Why Is Your Sex Drive Low And How To Improve It

Sex Drive! We hear these 2 words quite often. These two words seem to be so stimulatory and full of fun until one day you start realizing that you do not have them! We take our libido for granted even though we are not aware of what exactly it is. We feel it; we are proud of it, but we do not know from where does it come.

We are awakened only when we start experiencing a downturn in it. That is the time we sincerely try to find what is sex drive and why you do not have it as much as you had it earlier. If you feel your life has come to a standstill with a low sex drive, read this article to know everything about it.

What Is Sex drive?

Sex drive, more popularly called libido, is a feeling, a sensation or an experience that cannot be measured in terms of any unit.  It can only be understood in relevant terms. It is a feeling of being aroused in appropriate situations and able to reciprocate in a manner that could cumulate in a hard erection, timely ejaculation, and a satisfactory orgasm. When you say a low sex drive or libido, it means a decreased interest in having sex.

The male libido resides in two areas of your brain: the limbic system and the cerebral cortex. These areas of the brain are vital for your sexual desire and performance. These are so important that you may achieve an orgasm simply by dreaming or thinking about a sexual experience or arousal.

The brain is where your sex drive begins and ends

The cerebral cortex is responsible for the higher functions of the body such as planning, and thinking, which includes sexual thoughts. When you feel aroused, the signals originating in the cortex interact with other areas of the brain. As the next step, the brain sends signals to the nerves, which speed up the heart rate and increase the blood supply to your penis. They also signal a process, which creates an erection.

The limbic system is involved in regulating your motivation, emotions, and sex drive. An efficiently functioning limbic system forms an integral part of a healthy sex drive.

Other than the brain, several other factors play a role in determining your sex drive, which include the hormonal balance in your body, the ability of the nerves to carry impulses, the strength and bulk of your muscles and of course, the health of your penis.

Any functional or structural abnormality in these organs can hamper your sex drive. Here is a list of factors that can reduce your sex drive and affect your sexual abilities.

  • Stress and depression can lower your sex drive by reducing your interest in sexual activities. These psychological conditions can affect your mental health and prevent you from taking any initiative for a sexual act or even reciprocate to the advances of your partner.
