This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Stop Having Sex

Can we really lose it if we don't use it?

4 Experts Share Their Most Popular Tips for Better Sex

Whether you’re just not feeling it this week, or your sex life has basically been in hibernation for months, there are simple steps you can take now to lift your libido. In fact, bringing back those sexy vibes could be as simple as tweaking your diet, or taking on some new healthy habits that have the power to change your state of mind. Ahead, we break down these and more expert sex tips to help you feel satisfied between the sheets (or where ever else takes your fancy!). Keep scrolling.

Participate in some self-love

“Masturbate, [because] sex begets sex when it comes to keeping a woman’s libido up. The flush of biochemicals in the brain and through the body help to regulate your body’s hormones so that you can become aroused.

Also, often when we are only having partnered sex, we don’t get to know our body’s responses to stimulation when we are concerned with someone else’s pleasure.

Research has shown that women that masturbate regularly have more confidence in general, are more likely to initiate, are more fulfilled in their relationship and age better when it comes to their gynecological health.” — Dr. Kat Van Kirk, licensed marriage and family therapist and certified sex therapist. 

Get back in the mood by taking magnesium

“If you drink coffee, soda, skimp on sleep, exercise hard, and take birth control then you are almost guaranteed to be magnesium deficient. Symptoms of magnesium deficiency include muscle cramping, facial ticks, migraines, poor sleep, fatigue and PMS. Magnesium makes it harder for your testosterone to bind onto proteins and allows for more of it to remain ‘free’ in your bloodstream, which is exactly how you want it to be for a higher sex drive. Higher levels of free testosterone makes for more desire.

If your magnesium levels show to be very low, take 360mg a day in the form of a supplement, but if your levels are average, keep them up with a daily serving of dark chocolate and greens. Make sure to check on the quality of your period to see what else might be causing your libido to drop.” — Alisa Vitti, functional nutritionist, HHC, AADP

Deal with any repressed anger

“Repressed anger is actually one of the biggest causes of low sex drive in women. Women who have a lot of feelings of anger [or simply annoyance] don’t feel like having sex.
I work with women and encourage them to track down the source of their anger. Getting to the source means we can feel it and [heal]. Whether it’s anger over your partner’s lack of empathy or the fact that you’ve not expressed yourself fully in a meeting at work, don’t let anger stay on your body. Take a drive and scream it out, punch a pillow, or journal your anger — women aren’t taught to release anger, [but] expressing emotion, especially anger is necessary.” — Lisa Lister, Daysy sexpert and author of Love Your Lady Landscape

Clear your mind

“One of the biggest libido killers is stress. Learning to manage stress can change your life, especially your sex life. You can meditate, practice mindfulness, connect with nature, and just plain relax. The mind is our biggest sex organ so if you focus on having a clear and relaxed mind it will improve your libido.” — Shannon Chavez Qureshi, PsyD, CST Licensed Clinical Psychologist
