After a long day worrying, corralling kids, or generally dealing with life, sex may be the last thing on your mind. It’s understandable. When your day is consumed with a never ending to-do list, making time for satisfying sex — or wanting it — can be difficult. It happens to even the horniest of humans. But there’s good news. Even if your sex drive has taken a bit of a nose dive, there are many ways to get more turned on without feeling like you’re forcing it (or having to rely on female viagra.)
Just to be clear—there’s nothing wrong with having a low libido. Like I said earlier, it happens to everyone at some point. Having a history of sexual trauma, like many people do, can make sex more complicated. The everyday ebb and flow of a relationship can stunt your sex life, as can the physical and emotional changes of having a baby. There are many reason people choose to pause their sexual activity, and that’s totally OK. At the end of the day, you have to do what feels right for you.
That being said, there are lots of ways to get your juices flowing if you want to want it more. Here are some simple things you can do to help yourself get in the mood for loving.
