Low Sex Drive in Men: Why it Happens and What to Do

January 19, 2019

Unfortunately, low sex drive in men is seen as an inevitable side effect of aging, but guys who are headed into their golden years are not always doomed to a loss of interest in a little under-the-sheets play. In fact, the average man may enjoy a hearty appetite for intimacy far into his older years. Conversely, a weak libido can affect younger men. Understanding the underlying causes is the key to overcoming this problem or avoiding it altogether. In the following sections, we will discuss the facts about decreased sex drive and what to do about it.

Does ED = Decreased Sex Drive?

While it stands to reason that they are connected, low libido and a weak sex drive should not be put into the same category as erectile dysfunction, as they are completely different medical issues. In fact, men who have ED may have a very powerful interest in sex – they are just not up to the task, so to speak. However, these conditions can co-exist, particularly in men who have cardiovascular disease or a systemic illness such as diabetes. Because of this, a doctor should always be the first stop in determining why you’re not feeling the urge as often.

What about Low T?

Hormones such as testosterone do, indeed, play an important role in the ability to feel aroused. Men who have lower-than normal levels of testosterone are much less likely to feel turned on or to engage in any sexual activity, even masturbation. Low T, as it is often called, can be caused by stress, certain medications (such as antidepressants and some blood pressure medications and chemotherapy drugs), and other medical factors. Treating these issues and/or switching medications can help put the pep back in your step.

Other hormonal factors

Interestingly enough, not only testosterone, but also other hormones play a big role in the sexual arena. Low levels of thyroid hormone or very high levels of prolactin can impact testosterone levels, leading to low T issues. Again, treating these medical concerns is the first step in overcoming low sex drive.

Mental factors

While men are often blamed for thinking with their penis, rather than their brain, the brain actually plays a very important role in arousal. As such, men who are suffering from mood disorders such as depression and anxiety – conditions that occur in part due to altered brain chemistry, may not feel much like cuddling up with a partner. Likewise, a man who is experiencing relationship stress may not feel turned on by his partner. Therapy, either individual or for couples, can help address these concerns and allow a man to feel more like himself.

Penile Care

Believe it or not, the confidence and sense of well-being that come from adequate self-care can go a long way toward making anyone – male or female – feel sexier and more attractive. For the average man, this can be accomplished through regular and thorough attention to penile hygiene. Make sure to clean the area properly to keep it in tip top shape, then dry and moisturize your skin with a product made specifically for men, like a penis health creme (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which has been clinically proven safe and mild for skin). This particular health crème is a super weapon, containing vitamins and nutrients essential to the wellbeing of private area skin, like vitamin C, for collagen production, and Shea butter, which hydrates the skin leaving the area soft and smooth. Keep the penis skin clean, dry, and hydrated for optimal health.
