Low sex drive affects way more guys than we care to admit. It’s embarrassing. A shot to the pride. And makes you feel like less of a man. But the good news is, low sex drive is actually pretty easy to fix because it’s often linked to issues that are completely within your control.
That’s why in this article, I’m going to show you a few tactics you can start implementing right now, today to fix a low sex drive. Plus, if you stick around until the end, I’ll show you how you can fix a low sex drive in just a few seconds each morning and get your love-life back on track again.
Let me just say it at the beginning. Watching porn is slowly killing your sex drive if it hasn’t completely done so already. I’ve written about it at length here. But for the sake of this post, I’m going to keep it short and sweet. Sex is a great thing and its something that all guys should want and want a lot of. To want sex means your body is working as it should, with it’s hormone levels optimal and working efficiently.
Now, I’m not saying it should be on your mind every second of the day, but there should at least be a desire there. The problem is when you release that desire by watching porn. Here’s why it’s so dangerous to your sex drive: It all starts with watching porn one time. Then, the experience and dopamine hit feels so good, you watch again at some other point. Then again another time.
Without knowing it, you’re now training your body to seek porn for pleasure to create this “high”. And what you’re actually doing is creating your very own kind of chemical dependency on porn. As you choose from one of the hundreds of millions of videos you can watch, and “upgrade” to some more pleasurable kind of porn than before, what happens is your body loses its appetite for real life sex. Your “tastes” change. And as a result, you no longer desire the real thing because it just won’t do it for you anymore.
In short, watching porn makes you impotent. So in order to make sure it doesn’t happen to you, or to climb out of that ditch if you’re already in it, identify and stay away from things that trigger your desire for porn, do some sort of activity like going for a run or doing pushups when you get the urge, and take it one day at a time until you overcome this addiction.
A study from Zurich, Switzerland found there’s a specific libido-boosting compound in maca called “p-methoxybenzyl isothiocyanate”. It’s found at the root of the herb and creates aphrodisiac-like activity in the body. If you didn’t know already, an aphrodisiac is a substance that stimulates sexual desire, sexual behavior and sexual pleasure. In other words, it takes any lagging areas of your sex life and improves them so she thinks you’re the BEST in the bedroom.
Other studies (1, 2) show Maca is especially effective in boosting libido and increasing performance for guys who train and generally healthy adult men. But maca won’t just give guys who train a bedroom boost.
Another study from Forli, Italy tested the effects of maca or a placebo on 50 random men with mild erectile dysfunction. The maca group experienced more frequent erections and better overall sexual health than the placebo group. Their social confidence increased as well. But here’s the deal, in order to get these benefits from Maca, you need to make sure you’re getting it in the scientifically proven dosages. And I’ll show you how to guarantee you get maca in it’s clinically backed dosage at the end of this article.
Lose Belly Fat
According to studies, there’s a direct link between belly fat and how a man performs in bed. And the effect is so serious that it’s possible having too much belly fat can cause erectile dysfunction (ED) — which is that humiliating moment when a man can “get it up” when his lady calls him into the bedroom or wants to have some spontaneous fun. Yet losing belly fat has been linked to improved sexual performance. For example, a 2-year trial studied 110 obese Italian men experiencing ED who sought care at a university weight-loss clinic.
Men from the university were randomly assigned to the study and put on an intensive weight-loss program that included personal dietary counseling, exercise advice, regular meetings with a nutritionist, and a personal trainer. They met monthly with experts during the first year and bimonthly during the second year, with a target weight loss of 10%.
The average age was 43.5 with a BMI of 36.9. The intervention group consumed about 300 fewer calories a day and increased exercise activity from 48 minutes per week to 195 minutes per week. The men in this group had better erectile performance at the end of the study. 31% of men in the intervention group had erectile function fully restored, while a sedentary group only had 5% restored.
Another study from the University of Adelaide shows the same thing — that men who are overweight or obese have a incidence rate for erectile dysfunction, but that ED can be treated through improvements in physical activity and a reduction in body weight.
Horny Goat Weed
I’ve talked about Horny Goat Weed at length before because studies show this herb is packed with compounds that are a massive help when it comes to fixing a low sex drive. For example, this in-vitro study found icariin (a compound in Horny Goat Weed) increases blood flow “downstairs,” which is one of the most important parts of getting hard for sex and staying hard during sex. Basically, if your sex drive is working optimally, when the mood is right, your brain is going to send a signal to your body to start shuffling blood flow to your manhood. And Horny Goat Weed helps to improve that connection.
Another study found that icariin inhibits all PDE-5 enzymes. The PDE-5 enzyme creates tension in the tissue of your manhood, which prevents blood flow from “moving south” and filling up like it should when the time’s right. However, because Horny Goat Weed contains icariin, it releases that tension caused by PDE-5 enzymes and makes it easier for blood flow to get where it needs to be.
This effect from icariin is actually so powerful, this study published in the journal, Urology, was used against the Viagra Company’s patent, which claimed they were the only ones that had PDE-5 inhibitors in their formula — making icariin is a strong, natural PDE-5 inhibitor solution, compared to the synthetic and potentially harmful ingredients in Viagra.
Like Horny Goat Weed above, one of the best ways to boost blood flow and fix your sex drive is with Beetroot Powder. The reason beetroot works so well is because the Nitric Oxide release from beetroot improves blood flow — and a large study from Oxford, published in Cardiovascular Research shows nitric oxide and blood flow are the two major components of healthy erectile functions.
All the “major players” in libido boosting supplements (like Viagra and Cialis) know this fact and include synthetic ingredients in their products that boost Nitric Oxide production “downstairs”. Beetroot does the same thing, except 100% naturally. And now, some doctors are saying simply boosting Nitric Oxide with beetroot will make drugs like Viagra unnecessary.
Also, if you’re a guy who stresses out often, or has high blood pressure or diabetes, increasing Nitric Oxide with beetroot will be a huge help to your erectile health — because it really does all come down to blood flow.
A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that for diabetic rats (with a similar biology to you and me), 3 weeks of Nitric Oxide supplementation improved erectile health. This shows that even if your health is less than optimal right now, you can get big benefits in the bedroom with a little help from beetroot.
So there you have it, man. If you want to fix your sex drive, just follow everything I’ve given you on this list and you’ll see massive improvements. But here’s the deal… I know trying to make all these changes at once can be tough. Plus, tracking down maca, horny goat weed and beetroot powder in their clinically effective dosages can be a pain in the butt. But that’s why I recommend you check out my delicious testosterone and libido boosting greens powder, Man Greens.
