Some doctors say we should have sex four times a week because of the health benefits. I bet this means you need to increase your female libido, because women are more likely to stop enjoying sex when the going gets tough.
Stronger bones and muscles, less stress and depression, better memory and a stronger immune system are some of the health benefits of increasing your libido. But, four times a week may be a lot to ask for even the most loving couple – unless you know how to spice up your love life!
If you don’t enjoy sex, here are several tips for increasing female libido (because most men don’t need tips for improving their sex drive!).
The side benefits of increasing female libido are increased body confidence, self-esteem, and overall health and immunity.
One of the best ways to enjoy sex more is to make sure you’re open for business (or pleasure, I should say!). Cleopatra’s Cocojojo Pure Organic Sensual Kama Sutra Massage Oil is for sexy massages and intimate lubrication, and it’s 100% organic and natural.
And here are a few tips for reviving your sex drive…
9 Natural Ways to Revive a Woman’s Sex Drive
“Not having a full (physically intimate) relationship with a man is a waste of yourself,” said Helen Gurley Brown. “Like leaving a Ferrari out in the garage.”
Your Ferrari is getting rusty and dry, isn’t it?
Look at your prescription medication
If you have absolutely no appetite for intimacy, look at the medications you’re taking. Some, such as birth control pills or antidepressants, can inhibit your desire to be physically intimate. Talk to your doctor about how your prescriptions are affecting your hormones, brain chemicals, and physical desires. You may not be able to stop taking your prescription, but your doctor may have other tips for increasing female libido.
Accept your female sensuality
Millions of people – both men and women – aren’t comfortable with their intimate selves, says Dr Marian Dunn of the Center for Human Sexuality. Get comfortable with your sensual side by pampering your body, getting lots of exercise, and learning how you like to be touched. Be honest and real with your partner in bed.

Unwind before you hit the sheets
There’s nothing less intimate than worrying about bills, work, investments, or politics when you’re trying to spice up your love life! To de-stress before you go to bed, have a bubble bath, snuggle with your partner, give him a massage, or go for a long walk. Remember that the health benefits of intimacy start long before you jump into the sack. A natural way to increase your sex drive is to relax and let go of the petty details.
Get exercise you enjoy, that makes you feel sexy
The more oxygen, fresh air, and movement you get during the day, the more sexy you’ll feel overall – and the more your libido will improve. The health benefits of physical intimacy are connected to how active you are during the day. Find new ways to work out with your partner.
Improve your body confidence – a natural way to increase your sex drive!
The more self-confident you are when you’re undressed, the more you’ll relax and enjoy physical intimacy. If you feel awkward and embarrassed in the bedroom, you won’t want to be intimate – much less enjoy the health benefits of love. You don’t have to look perfect or be perfect to enjoy intimacy. To spice up your libido, remember that your partner isn’t focusing on your flaws. Your partner just wants to get laid!

Avoid white sugar, processed foods, and fat
Here’s one of the most natural ways to increase your sex drive: stay away from the fast food, soda pop, and processed sugar! Healthy fruits, veggies, grains, beans, and the occasional hunk of lean protein will make you feel better and more energetic. Plus, the right foods can improve your mood. Remember that healthy foods aren’t just a natural way to increase your sex drive, they also help with weight loss (it’s an upward spiral!).

Meet your partner halfway across the bed
If you crave physical intimacy every night and your partner wants it once a month, find a way to meet in the middle. Enjoying the health benefits of intimacy involves openly discussing how to make your love life better. Remember that making compromises and meeting halfway will strengthen your marriage, which can increase your physical intimacy.
Experiment with fun ways to increase your libido
To increase your sex drive, stay away from the same old routine! New toys, lingerie, places, or even foods can increase your emotional connection and improve your love life – which will improve your libido.
See the funny side of bedroom mishaps
Sue Johanson of the Sunday Night Sex Show told George Stroumboulopoulos (the host of The Hour) to laugh about your intimate escapades with your partner. Laughing with your partner increases feelings of connection, which will leads to more physical intimacy and health benefits.
