7 Libido Drainers

Your Health

Certain medical conditions, from thyroid to immune-system disorders, can sap your sexual energy. One of the biggest culprits is depression. Do things that used to bring you great joy -- like your orgasm -- feel dull? Ask your doctor about therapy.

Your Rx

Meds, especially birth control and antidepressants, can affect hormone balance and lubrication. Exercise may help override these side effects, so stay active.

Your Schedule

When you're too busy or tired for sex, at least touch your partner while you're sleeping; spooning or sleeping back-to-back fosters sexual intimacy.

Your Pet

Invest in a crate so that Fido or Fluffy doesn't sleep in your bed, especially between the two of you.

Your Pregame Routine

Skip watching America's Next Top Model or reading fashion magazines before you turn in. Looking at superskinny women will subconsciously kill your arousal.

His Hygiene

Suggest a steamy shower together to get into sexy mode.

Too Many Cocktails

Alcohol is a depressant, and it can throw hormone levels out of whack. Cut yourself off after one drink.

Hi, everybody! I want to share with you one of my greatest discoveries: 'The Magic of Making Up', by T.W. Jackson. With the help of his guidance, my lover and I managed to solve all our problems. It was as if we were able to turn back time to the happy moments, erase old hurts and reignite passion again. If you also need help or just a piece of advice, try it: makehimlikeyou[dot]net
