Your intimate life will have its ups and downs. Like any function of your body, your desire and ability to enjoy bedroom activities with your partners can easily be affected by a variety of factors. If you've been struggling with low libido or reduced bedroom activities, there could be a simple fix. Read on to find out what's getting in the way of you having the kind of bedroom activities you want to be having,
1- Partner Conflict.
Bedroom activities requires two to tango. Both partners need to feel connected and women especially need the feeling of being close. Poor communications, a sense of betrayal, lack of trust, and repeated fighting and criticism may create a relationship that lacks closeness and intimacy. Counseling may be the answer if couples find that the issues are too tough to resolve on their own.
2- Taking certain medications can lower testosterone levels, which in turn may lead to reduced bedroom activities.
For example, blood pressure medications may prevent ejaculation and erections in men. If you’re experiencing the effects of low testosterone, talk to your doctor. They may advise you to switch medications.
3- You have underlying medical issues.
When you’re not feeling well due to the effects of a chronic health condition, such as chronic pain, bedroom activities will likely be low on your list of priorities.
If you’re experiencing a chronic health conditions, talk with your partner about ways to be intimate during this time. You may also consider seeing a marriage counselor or therapist about your issues.
4- Lack of Closeness.
Making love is more than just getting down with your partner. Intimacy and closeness are important part of a healthy love life. If the desire to get down with your partner is waning, it may be time to inject romance back into the relationship. Snuggling, giving each other massages, and spending casual time together may help ignite that spark.
5- Alcohol and drugs.
Drinking excessive amounts of alcohol over a long period can reduce your intimacy drive, so it's a good idea to not drink excessive amounts.
Drug misuse is also linked to a loss of intimacy drive. Find out where to get help for drug addiction.
When it comes to day-to-day priorities, getting down with our partners often falls low on the totem pole. We prioritize the things that stress us out the most, even if it’s doing the dishes. When our partner approaches us, we think, ‘I have to get this done and you’re talking about that?’
Accept the fact that the dishes and laundry will still be there later, and a roll in the hay will likely not decimate your world order. Take 20 minutes out of the multitasking marathon of life for some private time with your partner, which is likely to be heaps more rewarding than an empty dishwasher or a neat pile of shirts.
