How To Naturally Boost Your Sex Drive & Intimacy

Everyone's libido is different, which can fluctuate over time, depending on the circumstances. This is normal. Everything from your menstrual cycle to how much stress you’re under at work, or even communication issues can cause a change in the sex drive and intimacy within your relationship. So we're diving head first (yes, we said head first!) into the things that will help vamp up intimacy and sex drive within your relationship. 

What is Intimacy?

Intimacy is the feeling of another person fully understanding you, and loving you because of who you are. Intimacy is also a process of discovery with another. It requires rare honesty, allowing yourself to be fully open, vulnerable and removing any emotional walls. The deeper the intimacy, the more you’ll have to experience of total connection with your partner, in and out of bedroom.

There's many forms of intimacy. For some, intimacy can be the sense of being “home” when in the presence of your partner. Or it may be an overwhelming feeling of relaxation or warmth when you see your loved one's face after an absence.  

How can you improve intimacy?

As we mentioned earlier, intimacy isn’t just about a physical connection. It’s also about closeness, familiarity and bonding. When you first start dating someone, everything is fresh, new and exciting. We experience intense emotions as we get to know the other person and when becoming intimate with each other. Over time, that excitement can lessen. While this can be disappointing, it's important to understand the connection you created with your significant other is deeper than ever before. You can improve your intimacy with your spouse by thinking back to the initial stages of your relationship, appreciating its development, and relishing in just how comfortable you feel with your spouse.

One of the best ways to improve intimacy with your spouse is with new experiences. You could embark on a major project together, or you could consider adding a new member to the family by adopting a dog! If you aren’t ready for that type of commitment, another suggestion would be to book a trip to an unfamiliar place. These new experiences are designed to challenge you—they’ll force you both to work closely together. Even if you have disagreements along the way, all these things can ultimately solidify your bond and improve the intimacy in your marriage. 

Can Yoga Vamp Up Sex Life?

It is no secret that a regular yoga practice can increase flexibility, self-esteem, self-awareness, and energy levels. What might be surprising, though, is that yoga can also increase your libido! A study from 2009 showed that regular yoga practice improves several aspects of sexual function in women, including desire, arousal, orgasm and overall satisfaction. 

Practicing yoga regularly teaches you to open yourself up to emotions that can bring a deeper experience of loving intimacy and total relaxation with your partner. There's many different yoga poses that help increase circulation to the pelvic region, which can result in a fun-filled, love-fuelled time under the sheets with your beloved! A quick google search and you can find the different yoga poses that will help you achieve your goal, but most yoga poses will do the trick!

Can holding hands help with intimacy?

You bet it can! If your relationship is in a funk where you're not feeling as connected emotionally, physically, or mentally, try grabbing your spouse’s hand. Or better yet, the next time you have an argument, try doing it while holding hands. Whenever you go somewhere together, hold hands. Or every time you are sitting by each other, grab your partners hands. 

Holding hands is one of the sweetest and most intimate acts in a romantic relationship. It incorporates closeness, warmth, and trust in just one intimate gesture. Couples who often hold hands express less anger and more satisfaction with their relationship than those who do not. That closeness and bonding can boost intimacy and might even up your sex drive! 

Can scents boost sex drive?

I'm sure you've smelled your partner before, and their scent made you all tingly and warm, which made you want to smell them more? So the short answer to this question is, most definitely!  Besides the natural pheromones' your body produces that attracts you to your partner, there's many aromatic oils that have been shown to have aphrodisiac qualities. Those are the sweet flavors & scents of cinnamon, bergamot, cedarwood, chocolate, vanilla, lavender, roses and patchouli. Ylang ylang has been long considered as one of the most powerful aphrodisiacs, as it increases libido and attraction between lovers!
