3 Exercises To Improve Your Libido

Y ears ago, one of my good friends said to me, “there is nothing complicated about men, just give them good food and sex.” We laughed, I accused her of reverse sexism, but somewhere in my subconscious, I’ve held on to that advice because I have always believed that sex, and I mean good sex, is crucial in most healthy relationships.

When good sex starts slipping, you better believe there is a problem brewing. Don’t just take it from me, numerous academic studies have shown that an active sex life with your partner is an important component in cultivating a long-lasting and happy relationship. However, as the years roll on, with the same partner, children, and work commitments, things can slow down in that department.

This is why I love the feeling I get post exercise. I call it the ‘get my freak on feeling’. Not only do I feel super strong and confident, I feel extremely sexy and desirable, and when a woman feels sexy and desirable, you know everything can happen. The good news is that this feeling is not reserved for me alone; everyone can feel this way after exercising.

Research shows a direct link between exercise and increased sex drive. There is a reason for this; exercise increases blood flow to all areas of your body, including your vagina, and this is what stimulates that post-exercise ‘get my freak on’ feeling.

Also, most people aren’t aware that sex drive is linked to levels of testosterone, and the more testosterone you produce, the more powerful your orgasms are. If this isn’t a reason to start exercising, I don’t know what is!

You can increase your testosterone level through exercise, focus on strength training, stick with heavier weights with less repetition.  You wouldn’t look like a man, I promise you. What you will develop are orgasms that may make your neighbours blush!


3 exercises to improve your sex life, your relationship, and your well-being

1. Kegels

The Kegel exercise can help increase your sex drive by creating sexual energy flow and increasing muscle tone in the pelvic floor. Kegels involve repetitively squeezing the pelvic floor. To do the kegel, contract your pelvic muscles as you would if you tried to stop urinating midstream. Hold the contraction for 5 seconds and relax for 5 seconds. Repeat 10 times and aim to do this exercise 3 times a day.  Kegels help to strengthen the muscles of the vagina and can contribute to stronger orgasms.

2. Ecstatic Yoga

Yoga practice has long been known for its potential to increase sex drive. Yoga focuses on stretching and energy flow. Stretching in itself can help to improve orgasm and increase sex drive. If you are particularly interested in the use of yoga to ignite your sex drive, try Tantra Yoga.

3. Sex

Sex itself as an exercise can increase your libido. The more you do it, the more you want it.
