Aging can take a toll on your sex drive as you age, but, do not give up just yet. Did you know you can keep your sex drive as you age? It will require you to put in the work but truth is your sex life will not deteriorate just because you are growing older.
As people age, it is a common occurrence for their sex drive to decrease and for some, sex becomes non-existent in their lives. This can be attributed to increased responsibilities, lower confidence levels, performance anxiety, lack of a partner, relationship issues, the list is endless. This however does not need to be the case and you can keep your sex drive by doing the following.
Life is busy and the more you age the more responsibilities you have especially if you have kids. This does not necessarily mean that you should bury yourself in work because it might end up destroying your health. Focus on being productive and take time to get enough sleep and relax. This will give you time to focus on you and save you some energy because sex does need energy.
Exercise is all about being energetic and improved blood flow in the body. It will also help you define the body image you want because what you think about you eventually does affect your sex drive.
3. Get some Vitamin C
At times all you need is eat your way to something. Vitamin C does increase your sex drive and luckily, it’s all in your kitchen. Oranges, strawberries, kiwi fruit and guava are just some readily available sources of Vitamin C.
4. Avoid or quit smoking
Smoking decreases blood flow in the body and that includes blood flow to your sexual organs. To keep or increase your sex drive, you need blood flowing to your sexual organs and quitting smoking is a step towards better libido.
5. Be confident
Being confident and not worrying about your performance can help you avoid performance anxiety. Confidence really does affect the mood for sex. The more confident you are, the higher the chances of retaining your sex drive as you age.
Older can be sexy, your age is just a number and your body still needs you to remind it that it is capable of doing everything and even performing better that it has been doing. Sex is not about age but it’s about how good you make it feel. So, love your age and work towards making your sex drive thrive.
