Loss of sex drive or a feeling that you’re not having as much sex as you might want can be depressing, but it doesn’t have to be forever. You might be missing out on opportunities to have sex because depression or anxiety are dampening your sex drive. Or, you may have a perfectly healthy libido but don’t feel you have the confidence to attract opportunities for a sexual encounter. Whether you’re depressed or mentally well, or you’re in a relationship or single, you have four major ways to reclaim your sex life to get on the path to a healthier relationship with your body. Read on to find out about strategies to enhance your sex life.
1. Talk to a trusted doctor about depression and anxiety
If you feel down or constantly anxious and feel that these problems may be linked to your feelings about sexual intimacy, it may be time to consult a doctor. It can be tricky to talk to your doctor about mental health or about sex, so make sure you research some strategies online beforehand to use on your yearly visit. Remember that your doctor is there to help you and contribute to your well-being, so you should never feel that anything is taboo to bring up. Your sexual health and libido is tied to the rest of your health profile, so it really is a doctor’s concern.
2. Touch yourself
If you are feeling uninspired in the bedroom or bored in general by your sex life, it may be a good time to explore more of what makes you you when it comes to sex. Knowing what you like can be vital in sexual encounters and will help you build confidence when you are in a sexual situation. Masturbation is a great technique for exploring your body and finding the best way for you to experience pleasure. Despite any myths you may have heard about masturbation, it’s a perfectly safe way for you to relieve stress, learn more about your sexual organs, and gain confidence for your next sexual encounter. In some cases, you may not have really spent any time with yourself and feel unsure of the best ways to feel pleasure. Your identity as a sexual being is vital when it comes to having a robust and satisfying sex life.
3. Experiment with toys
Whether you’re single or in a relationship with one or more partners, you can explore some different ways to spice up your sex life. There’s more to life than boring sex. Consider taking a trip to your local sex shop to learn more about the options. Dildos, vibrators, whips, and handcuffs are all tools that you can use to explore your sexual likes and dislikes. Even if you don’t feel comfortable with a partner, you can purchase a sex doll. Sex dolls can be a great aid when you’re experimenting. Online you can find sex dolls of all kinds: a tall sex doll, a small breast sex doll, and many more. Pick one you like, and take time to explore what sex is like with a doll and with any number of toys. You may find out more about yourself than you thought. And, having a sex doll can build your confidence so that when you have a sexual encounter with a human, you and that person will be a lot more comfortable.
4. Be yourself
This one may seem cliche, but if you are waiting around for someone to enter your life so that you can have meaningful and fulfilling sex, it’s important that you always be yourself. Lying is no way to start a relationship, whether it’s serious or casual. Being honest and communicative with people is the key to great sex and great relationships.
