    How to Boost Your Sex Drive

    Do you enjoy having sex but find that you’re not often in the mood to initiate?

    Do you wish you could get aroused more easily or desire your partner more often?

    Put your seatbelts on because we’re going on a quick tour around the sex drive.

    Sex drive or libido is basically how much or often someone desires sexual activity. It varies from person to person and there’s no such thing as a “normal” sex drive because everyone is different!

    There’s nothing wrong with a lower sex drive as long as you’re happy, but if you decide you’d like to increase your sex drive there are a number of simple methods you can try.

    Here’s my list of the best lifestyle changes you can make to put that sex drive into overdrive.

    Dr. Lanae St.John, DHS, ACS, is a board-certified sexologist, sexuality educator, and writer. She received her Doctorate in Human Sexuality from the Institute for the Advanced Study of Human Sexuality where she focused on Child and Adolescent Sexuality.

    She develops curriculum, teaches classes, and works with clients to normalize conversations about sexuality between parents and children. Her writing and sex expertise have been featured in various publications, websites, radio shows, and on YouTube.

    She believes that we must help adults discover a positive outlook on sexuality before they can impart wisdom to the young people in their lives. By teaching parents to nurture the budding sexuality of their children in ways that foster self-respect and acceptance for the totality of their personhood, she helps them raise children who become empowered, beautiful, strong, sexually healthy adults.

    She often incorporates pop culture, current advertising, music, and movie references into her teachings and blogs about sex, parenting, relationships, and gender at TheMamasutra.net.
