6 Surprising Libido Boosters For Women


A plate of oysters, strawberries dipped in chocolate, a steamy movie or a couple’s massage can set the mood for great sex. Sooner or later, however, these tried-and-true aphrodisiacs may start to feel tired. Fortunately, science has discovered some innovative ways to rev up the female sex drive. Here are six surprising libido boosters for women.

Adrenaline-Pumping Activities
Forget the sappy chick flick or romantic stroll on the beach. Studies show that a suspenseful movie or high-energy sport can be the most amazing aphrodisiac. When women and their partners do exciting things together, their bodies respond in ways that are similar to sexual arousal. Excitement activates the nervous system and gets the heart racing.

A Glass of Red Wine
According to a study published in a sexual medicine journal, red wine is a natural aphrodisiac. Women who drank a daily glass of red wine reported greater sexual desire and more vaginal lubrication. This is probably due to the polyphenols in wine. These healthy antioxidants open the blood vessels and increase blood flow to the genital region.

Red Clothes (On Him)
Everyone knows that a woman in red can drive a man crazy. As it turns out, seeing this color on their men can put women in the mood for sex. According to one psychologist, the color red signifies status and power. Many women find these traits to be sexually stimulating.

Romantic Finger Locks
Holding hands is a sweet and sexy gesture. When romantic partners touch each other, even with small finger locks, their bodies release a hormone called oxytocin. According to researchers, this hormone draws people closer and increases sexual arousal. Spontaneity is key, however, since unexpected excitement prompts the release of oxytocin.

The Scent of His Sweat
While smelly gyms rarely gets women worked up sexually, the smell of their men can actually accomplish that. According to a popular journal of neuroscience, the scent of male sweat can increase a woman’s level of a stress hormone called cortisol. Elevated levels or this hormone can boost female sexual arousal.

Yoga Exercise Poses
According to a journal on sex and marital therapy, yoga is an awesome practice. It offers physical, mental, emotional and spiritual benefits. It is also an excellent aphrodisiac.

Not only do yoga poses get the body limber, but they also throw the sex drive into high gear. Yoga enables women to become familiar with their bodies. This can help them get in touch with their sexuality. Yoga may also improve female orgasms by increasing blood flow to the genitals.

More Women Want It
A recent report on sexual health noted the percentage of women who wanted a better sex life: 47 percent. What they desire and what happens behind closed doors are usually very different. A low sex drive is a problem for a lot of women.

When familiar libido boosters no longer work as they did in the past, it is time to try something new. These six surprising libido boosters can spark sexual interest for women and their partners and spice up their sex lives.
