How do I get my sex drive back?
Low desire is often complex, but in the majority of cases, the low-desire partner is running on empty,' says Fleming. 'For most women, and an increasing number of men, desire for sex isn't as spontaneous as it might have been when they were younger, had fewer responsibilities, or were newly into a relationship.' The pathway back to feeling frisky is something called 'responsive desire': Even if sex is the last thing you want, nonsexual touches—him caressing your hair, you rubbing his back—may feel good to you. And that little bit of pleasure (aka 'arousal) in the body can lead to desire in the mind. 'The sexual response cycle isn't linear as once was thought. Arousal can lead to desire and orgasm, you don't always have to feel desire first.' Don't miss these other natural libido boosters.
