Top Ten Sex-Drive Killers

By Aderline Peech, DivineCaroline

If you donít remember the last time you felt like having sex with a partner, you are probably suffering from low sex drive. A number of psychological and physiological factors can have a major impact on your libido. Read on to know more about the top ten sex-drive killers.

1. Stress
Many people perform best under intense pressure, but sexual performance certainly isnít one of those. Stress at the workplace, financial troubles, a sick family member, or simply a hectic lifestyle with poor eating habits can take a toll on your sex life. You and your partner can seek counseling from a sex therapist, learn techniques for managing stress, and work toward having a better lifestyleóif itís stress thatís wreaking havoc with your sex life.

2. Relationship Problems
Knotty relationship issues need to be resolved and major differences ironed out if you want to reclaim the intimacy and affection that you once shared with your partner. Emotional closeness plays a major role in sexual passion, particularly for women. Poor communication, infidelity, constant arguments, and other relationship-breakers need to be eliminated before mutual sexual desire can be regained.

Informative to those who don't know. I guess if your sex drive has taken a plunge you're likely to know why.

Teresa W, you obviously have some obsession with wanting to prevent people from enjoying sex. You seem to troll the sex articles about ways to enjoy better sex, and write your standard one word comment, "Disgusting." What you resist is what persists. It's called projection. If it weren't for sex, you wouldn't be here at all.

My urologist (who got rid of my kidney stones for good, congratulations to her) told me that obesity has the effect of chemical castration. I think of McDonald's, Coke, Pepsi, Nabisco, Nestle, etc as surgeons who would be willing to caponize anyone who approaches them with the Neville Chamberlain attitude of compromising with them and eating their obesity engineered food "in moderation". Making people obese is a sex crime, often committed against children and the executives who order the manufacture of the likes of Fruit Loops should be registered as sex offenders.
