Around 43% of women and 31% of men have experienced sexual dysfunction, with one of the most common problems being low sex drive.
If anything could make a loss of sex drive even worse, it would be an enforced lockdown due to a global pandemic.
That’s why it’s more important than ever that we’re all looking after our sex drive during these difficult times.
Read on as we look at some tips for how to take care of your libido.
If you’re locked down without a sexual partner, things can get pretty frustrating. The good news is that there is still plenty of fun you can have at a distance.
Zoom has been one of the big winners during the pandemic, with the video chat app soaring in popularity. You don’t just have to use it for business conference calls either.
Cam sex may not be the same as the real thing, but it can still be a lot of fun and you’ll be guaranteed to be socially distanced too. Just make sure you don’t accidentally add your boss to the call.
Go It Alone
If you don’t have anyone you can have fun with on Zoom, then you can always have fun with yourself.
Masturbation is a healthy way to relieve stress and keep your sex drive happy. It’s also the perfect way to enjoy yourself and still be socially distanced.
If you need a little help, you don’t even need to leave the house. You can buy vibrators online and there are toys that men can use too.
Try Something New
If you’re locked down with your partner, spending so much time together can put a strain on all aspects of your relationship.
If too much proximity is having an impact on your sex life, then why not try something new? You could both write down some of your biggest fantasies and then read what the other has written. If any of the suggestions match or both of you like the sound of one or more of them, then you have a chance to try something new that will keep things spicy.
Which brings us on to our final point.
Set Aside Some Time
Even during a lockdown, your days never seem to be long enough to fit everything in. By the time you’re both free, it can be late and you’re too tired to want to think about sex.
Try to set aside some time specifically for being intimate. That way not only will you both be ready and eager to go, but you’ll also have something to look forward to throughout the day.
