Top Ten Sex-Drive Killers

9. Low Testosterone
The amount of testosterone in your body determines the level of your sex drive. If your testosterone levels dip too low, your libido is likely to decline. Testosterone therapy is recommended for boosting your sex drive.

10. Depression
Depression is a double-edged sword because it saps sex drive, while antidepressants do so too. Seeking treatment for clinical depression is necessary; you can deal with the low libido once the depression is under control.

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.
