Can men increase their sex drive?

 Ways to boost sex drive include managing stress levels, getting enough sleep, getting regular exercise, and following a nutritious diet.


1. Manage anxiety

High anxiety levels are a common barrier to sexual functioning and libido for males and females. This may be anxiety due to life stress or specific sex-related anxiety.

People with an intense work schedule, caring responsibilities, or other life stresses may feel fatigued and, as a result, have a low sexual desire.


Many people experience a lull in sexual desire and frequency at certain points in a relationship. This may occur after being with someone for a long time or if a person perceives issues in their intimate relationships.

Focusing on improving the relationship can increase each partner’s sex drive. This might involve:

  • planning date nights
  • participating in activities together outside of the bedroom
  • practicing open communication

Having better sexual experiences may increase a person’s desire for sex, thereby boosting their libido. In many cases, people can enhance their sexual experiences by spending more time touching, kissing, using sex toys, and performing oral sex. Some people call these actions outercourse.

Good sleep can improve a person’s overall mood and energy levels, and some research also links sleep quality to libido.


Following a nutritious diet can benefit people’s sex drive by promoting good circulation and heart health and removing specific foods that can decrease libido.

6. Try herbal remedies


A 2015 review studyTrusted Source states that there is limited but emerging data that the following herbal remedies may improve sexual function:

People should be wary of using herbal medications without their doctor’s approval. Some herbal products can interact with existing medications, and the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate them as it does with medications. For this reason, their quality, purity, and safety remain unclear.
