5 Ways To Get Your Sexual Mojo Back

Do you feel that you’ve lost your sexual mojo recently? Or maybe for some time, you’ve felt sexually unfulfilled or that you’ve just lost your libido altogether. Most of the time it’s because there’s an underlying reason – from hormonal imbalance affecting your desire for sex to vaginal dryness and pain. You aren’t alone, in fact, it’s one of the most common symptoms of perimenopause – but the good news is that there are lots of things you can do to get your libido back. Here we have five tips to help you boost your mojo and rediscover your sexual desire.

1. Let’s get intimate

This one feels like something we already know – but the reality is that for many couples, when life takes over intimacy is sacrificed and we ‘forget’ how important it is to be consistently intimate for all areas of our relationship, but especially sexually.

Being intimate isn’t just about physical touch – but it’s a big part of it! Stroking, touching, massage are all ways to be physically intimate, but the power of a kiss and holding hands shouldn’t be underestimated. For many women, touch indicates closeness, which we find hella sexy! So if touch is missing from your relationship and affecting your sexual mojo, think of ways, outside of the bedroom that you can improve intimacy. Don’t forget small and meaningful gestures are a great way to feel more intimate too – from a sexy text message to a love note, there’s so many ways to deepen that intimate connection that is a precursor for many of us sexually.

2. Less ewww, more oooo!

Noooooo not water (although we always can do with another sip!) No, we are talking about your vaginal hydration here! There’s no bigger passion killer than feeling sore and irritated ‘down there’, just as you want to be intimate. Your vulval skin health is as important as the skin on your face, and as we age and start to go through the hormonal changes of perimenopause, vaginal atrophy is another symptom we need to deal with.

Using an intimate moisturizer, such as Glow by Hormone University’s Intimate Hydrator are specifically designed to alleviate dryness, and help boost libido by providing the necessary lubrication for a more comfortable and enjoyable sexual experience. By reducing the risk of physical discomfort and pain, you’ll feel far readier to be ‘turned on’ and not worried that things might be painful just at the moment you want them to be pleasurable. And during penetrative sex, don’t forget the lube! As well as enhancing sexual pleasure for both of you, it can also help protect the delicate skin in your vagina. Glide away, baby!

3. Share the load

We really underestimate the toll of bearing the mental load on women – and yet it’s so common in many relationships, but especially if you have children. When we feel we are carrying the burden of thinking and caring for everyone else, it can be tricky to then switch into ‘sexy mode’, even when we desire sex and know it improves our wellbeing. To address this imbalance, it’s vital to communicate with your partner the need to share the load with you to give you space to relax and feel cared for, which we know positively influences sexual desire. Men – take on the chores!

4. Eat and move well

You are what you eat – and if we aren’t eating and moving well, it can have a profound impact on our overall heath but especially our sexual desire. This isn’t just about being slim either – it’s about nourishing your mind, body and importantly – hormones. Did you know that foods like avocados, nuts, seeds, and seafood, which are high in essential fatty acids, help in hormone production, including those involved in sexual desire? Libido LOVES zinc enriched foods too, so add beans, nuts, and whole grains to your diet to nourish desire!

Raising your endorphins – your feel good hormones – will help to increase your libido and there are some activities that are known to improve blood flow to the pelvic area too! Activities like yoga, Pilates, and aerobic exercises are great for your sexual mojo and aren’t even particularly intense workouts, leaving you plenty of energy to ‘workout’ in the bedroom when you are ready!

5. Love yourself first

It all starts with you – and if you are struggling to find your mojo in the bedroom, then prioritising your own pleasure is a great way to boost your libido. There is a lot of stigma around women’s self pleasure, but it’s perfectly natural to explore your own body, understand what you like and receive pleasure from touching yourself intimately. Orgasms are great for your health – and for many women, they are more comfortable and relaxed when masturbating on their own and able to reach orgasm much faster than with a partner.

Self-exploration can involve experimenting with different types of touches, pressures, and rhythms to discover what enhances pleasure and there are so many products on the market now we are starting to become a bit more open about women’s self pleasure! Get your sexual mojo back by using your hands, fingers and trying different positions – for some women, they prefer the pressure of lying on their front while stimulating their clitoris, others prefer a more supported, seated position especially when using vibrators or penetrative toys. Clitoral stimulators are great if you prefer a non-penetrative orgasm too. The important thing is to understand your own body, what makes you literally tick in the bedroom and then know what you need to communicate with your partner in order to increase your sexual appetite and interest and rediscover your mojo!

It’s important to remember that our hormones can influence our sexual desire, and if you are experiencing a reduction in libido and feeling like you’ve lost your sexual mojo, you aren’t alone! During our cycle, perimenopause, post-partum and post menopause, estrogen levels can drop and with it, our interest in sex often wanes. Using a topical supplement, like Period SOS or Menopause SOS, can also help to boost your estrogen levels and help restore your hormone balance for a happier, better sex life.
