The word “libido” refers to sexual drive. There are a number of factors that can contribute to the loss of libido. Many of them are controllable, some not, but all of them are important to be aware of as you pass through the well-known stages of manhood.
Physical health and endurance, decreased testosterone production with age, depression, lack of intimacy and love, and performance problems can all contribute to a decreased libido. Physical health and endurance can be modified with an active lifestyle, including regular exercise, physical chores, eating fresh vegetables and whole grains, and avoiding sitting for prolonged periods. Cardiovascular exercise, such as walking, jogging, biking, or swimming can all increase physical endurance.
It is a well-known fact that men begin to have less circulating testosterone as they age and this can affect libido and overall energy. In some cases, steroid replacement therapy is used to help alleviate symptoms of testosterone fatigue. Discuss this with your doctor.
Depression and other psychological illnesses can affect the psychological component of sex drive. If a person isn’t interested in sexual intimacy, there may be nothing wrong with them at all. We all have varying levels of sexual interest. You may find that a change in patterns of sexual interest is more informative of an underlying problem. For example, if a man has always been interested in sex and over the course of a few months has no interest at all, there is likely a problem regardless of age. Infidelity, depression, erectile dysfunction, and lack of intimacy may all play a role as well.
Sexual performance is a broad topic not covered entirely here. However, premature ejaculation, impotence, poor erection performance, and pressure relationships can cause a man’s sexual performance to decrease. Because this is such a sensitive issue, denial is often unconsciously used to make excuses for the decrease in sex drive.
