Guys, boost your sex drive
Your guide to getting more
Sex, sex, sex; it’s all we think about, right? Although lots of people think us guys want sex constantly, it’s just not always true. However, although guys don’t always want it, if you’ve not felt that urge in a while, or if your idea of a hot night is eating a fiery madras with mates, then maybe it’s time you gave your libido a kick. With just a few tricks and changes to your diet you can turn yourself into a real-life Casanova and have a few more wild nights in under the covers:
Get some sun
Sunbathing isn’t just for girls; if you want to increase your libido it’s time you lathered on the sun screen and got outdoors. Recent research has shown that soaking up the sun’s rays increases male testosterone levels. According to studies, as doses of vitamin D increase, which is gained from sunshine, men’s testosterone levels rise. Just one hour in the sun can significantly boost the male sex hormone.
Get a takeaway
It always seems that everything that tastes fantastic is terrible for our health; it’s either high in fat, high in salt or it has a high GI level. However, although a pizza, some doughnuts or some popcorn may not be the healthiest of snacks, there are certainly some perks to indulging in some of these treats. A research team from Chicago found that the smells from these foods in increased men’s penile blood flow.
Take a spin
A Bugatti Veyron Super Sport, a Hennessey Venom GT and a McLaren F1; do these names get your heart racing? According to research, they should. Getting behind the wheel of a fast car gives you such a thrill that it makes the body produce more testosterone. However, it’s bad news for those guys who drive a banger. Driving an old car can actually lower your levels of the sex hormone. Perhaps that iconic, mid-life crisis sports car no longer seems like a stupid buy.
Have a kick about
Fed up of getting nagged because you play too much soccer? Well, here’s a fail-proof excuse you can use next time you’re getting hassled: soccer increases your libido. The beautiful game is said to boost testosterone and levels of the hormone is found to be highest if you are playing at home. Why not ask your girl to come and watch you play at your next home match, then take her on a romantic date; you won’t be able to keep your hands off her.
Ice cream: the food of the sex Gods
Although a bowl of ice cream may seem a little infantile, all men should grab a bowl every now and again. Vanilla ice cream is a perfect concoction of sex fuel. The vanilla scent is a natural libido booster, which calms men and reduces inhibitions. The calcium content in a typical bowl (200 milligrams) can also make orgasms more powerful and intense. Next time you’re out on a date, don’t skip the deserts guys.
Put down the bottle
Chatting up women can be terrifying, granted. But if you’re looking to reignite your sexual desire, cut down on the amount of alcohol you consume, especially on those nights when you could potentially get laid. More than three units a day will lower your libido. A normal bottle of lager (330ml) contains 1.7 units, as does a 5 oz serving of red or white wine. Even a week of not drinking can increase your desire.
Your mate got promoted over you, your team is facing relegation and your in-laws are coming to visit. Life is always going to be stressful, but too much stress increases the hormone cortisol, which causes testosterone to drop dramatically. To combat additional stress visit a steam room. This will relax you and boost your blood flow; both in turn will increase your sex drive. In addition to this, eat foods containing tryptophan, like turkey.
