How to boost your libido: 10 tips for women

There are numerous reasons why your libido could be low. These include stress, exhaustion, sadness, certain medications, and hormonal changes.

But don't worry! A decrease in sexual desire should not be considered abnormal or permanent. There are ways to revive your sexual drive. Here are ten simple and efficient strategies we recommend you try.

1. Adopt a healthier lifestyle

One of the most effective strategies to increase your appetite for sex is to live a healthier lifestyle. Eating a well-balanced diet, exercising (at least 30 minutes per day), and getting enough sleep are all critical to preserve your energy and vitality, both of which are required for a healthy libido. Plus, leading a healthier lifestyle will help you reduce stress, which can be a major cause of low libido.

2. Try some relaxation techniques


Another way to deal with reduced sex drive is to practice some relaxation techniques. After all, stress is one of the leading causes of decreased desire. Meditation, yoga, and deep breathing exercises are some of the most effective relaxation strategies.

3. Communicate with your partner

To overcome a lack of sex drive, communicate with your partner. Discussing your sexual desires and demands will help you find solutions together. Sharing and exchanging ideas will strengthen your partnership and emotional bond while also improving your libido.

4. Try some new sexual positions

Try experimenting with different positions if your normal sexual practice is the reason for your low libido! Low libido may also be caused by boredom. You can break the pattern and revive your desire by trying different sexual positions. The following are a few of the best sexual positions to increase libido:

  • The lotus position: The man lies on the floor in a lotus position and the woman sits on him, allowing him to control the rhythm;
  • Doggy style: A position that allows the woman to stimulate her other erogenous zones, especially the clitoris. You can also wear a glittering jewel butt plug to spice up your session;
  • 69: This position allows both partners to explore each other's bodies without penetration.

5. Experiment with essential oils

Essential oils

Exploring the world of essential oils is another option for overcoming low libido in women. As a matter of fact, several essential oils may increase libido. Ginger, which energises the body, and ylang-ylang, which calms the body and stimulates the senses, are two of the most potent essential oils.

To create a pleasant ambiance, apply a few drops of oil combined with a neutral oil (sweet almond oil, calendula, etc.) to key areas of your body (lower abdomen, chest, neck). A few drops can also be added to a romantic bath.

Apply a drop to your forearm and wait a few minutes to see if there is any reaction (redness, itching) to make sure you are not allergic before applying the oil elsewhere.

6. Stimulate your acupuncture points

Another useful strategy for overcoming low sexual drive is to stimulate your acupuncture points. Your libido may benefit from acupuncture, an ancient Chinese medical practice. The area behind the ankles and the point directly below the navel are two acupuncture locations that might boost desire. You may feel more energised if you gently massage these two spots right before sex. 

7. Try a sensual massage for two

To liven up your foreplay, try a sensual massage for two! This type of massage can help relax the muscles and stimulate the senses. There are several types of massage that are effective in boosting libido, such as tantric massages and hot oil massages.

8. Try some aphrodisiacs

Aphrodisiac foods like dark chocolate (which increases dopamine secretion), oysters (containing histamine liberators, which promote female pleasure) or figs (a fruit synonymous with sensuality) can help fight a flagging sex drive. These aphrodisiac foods are rich in substances that stimulate desire.

Why not start by trying the trendy aphrodisiac drink, Sex Coffee? This spicy coffee contains maca (a Peruvian libido booster), cinnamon (to energise the body before sex) and nut milk (to boost the metabolism).

Here is a recipe for sex coffee that will awaken all your senses before sex:

  • 1 cup of black coffee
  • 1 tablespoon raw cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons of coconut milk
  • 1 tablespoon of honey
  • 1/2 tablespoon cinnamon
  • 1 tablespoon of maca powder

Add all these ingredients to your coffee and whisk until frothy.

9. Play with sex toys

To increase your sex drive, you can also use sex toys. Sex toys can help stimulate desire and allow you to discover new pleasures. Among the sex toys most likely to help you restore a healthy libido are vibrators, dildos and butt plugs.

10. Consult a doctor if your low sex drive persists

It is important to see a doctor if you’ve tried everything and find that your sex drive is still lacking. A chronic lack of desire can be a sign of a more serious health problem or a sign of a more serious psychological disorder. A doctor will be able to determine if there is a medical cause for your low libido and suggest an appropriate course of treatment.
