Do you ever struggle with a low libido during winter? You’re not the only one – people all over the world tend to have lower sex drives when it’s chilly. According to medical research, cold weather has been making humans less horny for thousands of years. If you can’t find the motivation to go out and get some wintertime nookie, blame your ancestors’ hibernation habits.
Not all hope is lost though – there are steps you can take to keep your libido alive during winter. The next time a cold snap sets in, try the following tips to get in the mood.
It can be tempting to stay snuggled up on the couch when it’s cold, but maintaining a healthy body weight is one of the easiest ways to keep your libido alive. Even if you’re already pretty fit, chilly temperatures can slow your metabolism down, making it harder to shed those excess kilos. The days are also shorter during winter, making many people feel low on energy and less inspired to exercise.
Exercising when it’s cold and dark outside isn’t easy, but what’s a better motivator than sex? We’re not saying you have to turn into a fitness fanatic – just try not to develop any unhealthy habits this winter.
Get Plenty of Vitamin D
Getting enough sun isn’t just good for your health in general – it can also help kick-start your sex drive. Studies have found that getting just the right amount of exposure to light increases testosterone levels in men, allowing them to enjoy greater sexual satisfaction.
As the temperature drops, our testosterone levels naturally decline, leaving many people feeling sluggish and often too tired for sex. To avoid vitamin D deficiency, simply go outside and bask in the sun. Just be careful not to overdo it – 10-15 minutes of sun exposure will allow you to soak up enough Vitamin D without getting burnt to a crisp.
Crank the heating
Colder weather can numb your physical sensations, making sex less enjoyable. After all, what’s the point in getting it on if you can’t actually feel anything? The warmer your skin, the more sensitive it will be. Instead of having sex with your socks on, there are slightly more sensual ways to keep warm. Before getting down and dirty, be sure to turn your heating up, or have plenty of warm blankets on hand. If you’re trying to save on the heating bill, engaging in plenty of foreplay is the most enjoyable way to warm up before sex.
