Sexual lust first appears in early teens and accompanies people into old age. From Latin, it is also referred to as libido and is the reason why people reproduce. How would children develop without sexual desire?
However, most mammals that only sexually engage with each other for reproduction purposes germinate their libido through the prospect of sex for pure fun…
What does libido mean?
The term libido refers to sexual desire. A person usually feels the first sexual interest in the other or in the same sex early in puberty. While it is normal for children to find boys or girls stupid and kiss disgustingly, this perception changes during puberty. Because from now on a libido has a meaning for humans: they could reproduce purely biologically.
Ideally, the libido remains constantly high during the fertile periods and only diminishes when the person cannot or should no longer produce offspring anyway. So far at least the biological component determines the human libido. While animals now only sexually communicate with each other for reproduction, humans also do it for fun and need sex to maintain their mental health. Therefore the libido is maintained to a lesser extent even after the childbearing years.
But do not confuse: Libido has nothing with Potenz or even Potency resources to do that are 2 (or 3) pairs of different shoes!
Reasons for weak libido in men
Men react to emotional and psychological stress, physical exertion and an unhealthy lifestyle with weak libido. A biological approach helps to understand what can reduce male desire.
Men who are stressed or tense, who eat an unhealthy diet or who endanger themselves with alcohol and cigarettes would not be good fathers in the wild because they could not protect their children well. A man who, on the other hand, can cope well with stress, has a balanced diet and is emotionally stable can take care of his partner’s offspring without any further difficulties. Now the only thing left to find out is which factor weakens the male libido in everyday life or whether the feelings towards the partner are still right…
Reasons for weak libido in women
Women are far more emotional than men. They react quickly to disagreements in their relationship with reduced libido, at least in relation to their partner, with whom things are not going well in the relationship. In difficult relationships, a man could often continue to sleep with the woman without any problems. Mental stress and psychological problems also burden the female libido much more than they do with a man. In the same way, a woman can also suffer from physical factors: Overweight, for instance, changes the hormone levels of the female body in such a way that the libido decreases. Alcohol, nicotine and other drugs or “just” unhealthy nutrition would have the same effect on female lust as on male.
So you can increase your libido
Often your libido is only temporarily low. There will always be times when you feel more or less like your partner or sex in general. However, if the phase continues, you should ask yourself what is different about your everyday life. Stress? Then you have to actively reduce it:
- for example through changes in everyday life
- Conversations with the partner
- Physical activity such as sports (initially outside the sheets)
- a nourishing conversion with healthy food and many fresh and few artificial finished processed ingredients and without Fast Food
All this can also help in the medium term to increase a low libido through a healthier lifestyle.
Interrogation also the relationship and the feelings for the partner – especially if your libido seems to be low only in relation to your partner, but you still find other people attractive.
