Top Ten Sex-Drive Killers

  • 3 of 5

5. Medication
Loss of libido is a side effect that accompanies a number of medications. Ask your doctor to prescribe alternatives or change the dosage if your sex drive is being affected by medications, such as: antidepressants, antihistamines, blood pressure drugs, oral contraceptives, anti-HIV drugs, synthetic progesterone-medroxyprogesterone, finasteride, or chemotherapy.

6. Body Image
If you feel you just arenít sexy enough to please your partner, you are suffering from poor body image linked to low self-esteem. Many men, for instance, feel that their penis is too small, and these feelings of inadequacy can affect their sex life. If you are a woman and are too concerned about your breast size, you are probably ruining your sex life. Talking to a psycho-sexual therapist or a qualified counselor will help you develop a positive body image and dramatically enhance your libido.

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.
