Low Libido In Women: 6 Ways Your Sex Drive Is Being Held Back
There are various factors that affect your ability to orgasm, which is why it’s important to take a deeper dive on what’s holding you back.
The sexual statistics don’t lie. With only 25% of women experiencing orgasm through vaginal sex, 20% seldom having orgasms, and 5% never having an orgasm at all, it’s about time for a sexual revolution. There are various factors that affect your ability to orgasm, which is why it’s important to take a deeper dive on what’s holding you back.
Having a healthy and enjoyable sex life is possible for everyone. It’ll require a little soul-searching and analysis to see what exactly is keeping you from embracing your sexuality. Here are some of the most common factors that inhibit sexual drive and what you can do about it:
Too Much Alcohol
We all know that too many drinks can impair our decision making, however, why is it holding us back from enjoying those decisions? Alcohol is a dehydrating diuretic, which can reduce your vagina’s ability to produce lubrication. A dry vagina makes for a rough (and not in the good way) sexual experience. Additionally, intoxication can disrupt your central nervous system, making it difficult to be as sensitive as you’d like to be down there.
Solution: Drink more water before engaging in sex to counteract alcohol’s dehydrating effects on your vagina (and that hangover). Additionally, try using a lubricant to help reduce any unwanted friction from vaginal dryness.
Unfamiliarity With Your Body
One of the biggest things holding you back can be your lack of familiarity with your own body. Figuring out what you do and don’t like in the bedroom is important to improve your overall sexual experiences. Everyone’s body is different and by doing a little exploring, you may find out new things you never even imagined.
Solution: Take some time to explore your body. You can do this in various ways, either alone or with a partner. Reading a racy novel, watching porn, or using a sex toy can all allow you to experience and understand your body in new and exciting ways.
