The libido is you interest in sex, or sex drive. It can be affected by many things.
- Your Emotions
- Your Physical Needs
- Your Psycological Needs
When your basic needs like food, sleep, and rest have been taken care of then your needs for emotional and physical intimacy become dominant and need to be fullfilled.
What Affects Your Libido?
You may experience off days where you just aren’t in the mood. This is not the sign of a weak libido, everyone has days where they just don’t feel like it.
There are numerous things that can affect your sex drive.
- Medical Problems
- Overall Health
- Relationship Problems
- Low Self-Esteem
- Negative Relationships or Sexual Experiences
- Pregnancy, Childbirth, or Postpartum
- Drugs or Alcohol
- Negative Family Members or Friendships
Did you notice I didn’t say age? We are told as we get older our libido will decrease. This is possible, however you are only as old as you think you are. If you want to keep a strong and healthy sex drive for life make sure you keep yourself in good shape and health, avoid stress whenever possible and have sex often.
That saying “if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it” is absolutely true. If you don’t have sex or masterbate on a regular basis, you are less likely to want sex and your libido will decrease as a result.

All Dolled Up
We often get very comfortable with our partners. At night we take our makeup off, our hair is disheveled and we get into flannel pj’s. Doesn’t sound like much of a turn on does it? Try having sex when you’re still all dolled up, get into something sexy. This is not just for his benefit, but if you feel sexy you are far more likely to initiate and want sex.
Don’t Have Sex
Yes you heard me right. Try not having sex, but tease and flirt with eachother all week. You can try texting dirty little messages to each other throughout the day. Try kissing, holding hands and cuddling, this will rev you up so when you finally do have sex, you want it and you want it bad!
Don’t have pictures of family members around the bed, especially your kids. This will turn you off and the mood will be lost. Always keep the bedroom your sexual sanctuary.
Go Choco-Loco Tonight with Your Lover!
I love chocolates—and I know it’s not only me who has a passion for Hershey’s Kisses and M&Ms. These sweets are believed to be aphrodisiacs and let me say now that I believe it 100%! After all, romance, passion, foreplay, sex… they’re all heavily affected by your mind right? And if you believe that chocolates can help bring out the ‘wild woman’ out of your partner, then so be it!
Chocolates can do wonderful effects on our body. Since they are made from plants, they inherently contain natural components that promote good health. In fact, it is said that dark chocolates reduce high blood pressure.
A small bar is enough to also lower bad cholesterol in the body. Eating chocolates gives an immediate boost of energy and vigor. Moreover—and also very fortunately—chocolates have also been found to have a certain effect on one’s desire for sexual activity.
They are said to strengthen a woman’s libido, resulting in an increased interest and desire for sex. As for men, chocolates stimulate passion and vitality and a remarkable increase in sexual desire can be noted. No wonder men always resort to chocolates when they date women!
Short Choco History
According to aphrodisiac history, the belief started with the Mayans, who drank chocolate for fertility. They would even use a chocolate drink concoction during marriage ceremonies.
In very recent studies though, chocolates have been discovered to have phenylethylamine, a chemical that’s detected when one falls in love. And get this: the same chemical rises up to the brain during an orgasm!
Serotonin is also known to be present in chocolates. This chemical gives one a feeling of pleasure. These two substances are mildly addictive. But women are known to be more susceptible to the effects of phenylethylamine, thus making women more ‘chocoholic’.
If you’re still not convinced, then maybe results of a study (by Italian researchers no less!) published in The Times in 2004 will. According to that research, “Women who have a daily intake of chocolate showed higher levels of desire than women who did not have this habit. Chocolate can have a positive physiological impact on a woman’s sexuality.”
Chocolate as a Sex Tool
Now if feeding your woman chocolates does not give you a hard-on or if she just ends up eating the whole box without even giving you a second glance, then there’s something wrong with your delivery.
That’s right. Chocolates are so common now that they don’t really conjure up images of sex right away so don’t just buy the average chocolate bonbon. Why not try Kama Sutra chocolates! That’s right; there are chocolate bars being sold online now that are shaped specifically to match Kama Sutra sex positions!
If you want to take this a step further, cook up your own Kama Sutra-shaped chocolates. But this time, add some chili flakes to increase the aphrodisiac factor.
Now what can be better than vanilla ice cream topped with warmed chocolate? That would be vanilla ice cream and warm chocolate eaten off your lover’s body!
Put some melted vanilla ice cream on your lover’s naked body and lap it up! Now, immediately follow this up with some warm chocolate sauce and suck off all of that too! Other areas you can try this are the neck, genitals, hands, chest, belly button and inner thighs.
Here’s another idea. Why not buy edible chocolate undies! Present this to your lover; urge them to try it on with one promise… that they will be your dessert tonight! You can also turn the tables around of course. He can put on a chocolate-flavored condom and ask her to give him a blow-job. I guarantee she’ll be sucking away with gusto!
Ok, now here’s one I actually first heard from one of our subscribers. Edible body chocolate paint… that should be applied with a very soft and tender paint brush. Imagine how they would feel as you glide that tickly, feathery, chocolate-laden brush all over their body. By the time you reach their genitals, they’ll be panting like crazy!
There is truly no end to the wonders of chocolate as an aphrodisiac! In fact, I dare say that of all the aphrodisiacs that are popularly known, chocolates are the most readily available, are some of the most inexpensive to buy, are a joy to be eaten by both men and women, and are actually believed by scientists to increase sexual appetite!
So what are you waiting for? If I were you, I’d be running out the door to get some chocolates now!
