Wondering how to increase libido?

Let’s cue erotic play! Maybe you’re due for a new toy or you’re in the market for trying something completely new? Sex toys and erotic play may improve your health and well-being, so let’s uncover how. You can be single or coupled up, it really doesn’t matter. Everyone and anyone can benefit from owning and using adult toys.

Firstly, let’s talk about stress. Cortisol is the stress hormone and it’s produced when we are producing too much adrenaline which is another stress hormone. They’re both responsible for putting us in ‘fight or flight’ mode, and it removes the opportunity for us to sit in ‘rest and digest’.

Being in this stress state can be really bad for our immune system. Sixty per cent of our immune system lives in our gut, which is often referred to as the second brain. The central nervous system and the gut play a massive role in keeping you well. There are four toxic stressors that impact on your nervous system, and in turn, your immune system. They are physical, chemical, emotional and environmental.

What exactly are these stressors?

  • The physical stressors are easy to understand. It’s the bumps and falls, car accidents, sedentary postures, fast-paced work lives, or even the birthing process.
  • Chemical stressors are the pesticides, alcohol, and toxins we can encounter in our everyday lives. This is why some people use chemical-free products for cleaning too! It’s not just about how it impacts the environment, but also you.
  • Environmental stressors are things we can’t control like pollution, weather events, and even noise.

But, the biggest stressor in our lives is the emotional part. The first thing that happens when we have an argument with someone, is that our head cranes forward and our shoulders rise up.

All the blood is now away from your brain, and it’s gone straight to the extremities to help you run away or wrestle and use up all that adrenaline – it’s our primal state. The problem is that we aren’t using it up! We aren’t running, moving, wrestling a lion to the ground or even walking enough. We are sitting down up to eight hours a day in our laptop lifestyles.

Sedentary postures and our fast-paced work lives can be more stressful than we realise.

So, what can you do to increase your libido?

We can move more! Movement helps remove the stress hormones or at least decrease them, to in turn increase libido naturally, and boost our serotonin and oxytocin. These are the love and feel-good hormones. Apart from physical exercise, there’s also healthy movement that happens when we are touching others and ourselves.

Connection, self-care, and self-love

Let’s explore connection and being single in the modern dating and pandemic era.

Using dating apps or even sliding into DMs on Instagram can be an amazing way to connect with others, though remember it’s important you have respectful connections and safe online interactions. Consent is key!

Whatever you decide, know your boundaries and I’d recommend you be protected and prepared with condoms if you do decide to share sacred space with someone.

Don’t forget self-care and self-love is important too. You don’t have to wait for your perfect partner, you can also explore being your own pleasure state.

An orgasm:

  • Helps to balance your hormones which can assist the health of your overall wellbeing. It’s more than just relieving stress from your mind. You’re stimulating blood flow, creating more movement, slowing your breathing and deeper breathing, and it can help blood circulation.
  • They also spike your DHEA levels. The DHEA hormone improves brain function, balances the immune system, helps maintain and repair tissue, and promotes healthy skin. The benefits are endless, all because you’re more relaxed, and moving and breathing better.
  • Orgasms may help regulate your cycle, simply because the hormones are balancing out. They also may help keep you in shape, improve sleep and help you feel closer to your partner.

However, you don’t necessarily need a partner to claim the benefits of an orgasm when you have the help of toys.
