Sedentarity, stress, fatigue, tobacco, obesity, difficulties in daily life have a bad impact on desire. For both men and women, these factors do not mix with sexual prowess. ” The enemies of the libido are the anxieties. Whether they are personal and we drag them since childhood, professional and social, or relational, we are assaulted. It is therefore difficult to keep this libido above the water, to avoid it being submerged, smothered.Gérard Tixier, psychiatrist, psychoanalyst, sex therapist (sex therapist attached to Henri Mondor Hospital) and a couple therapist in Paris, knows very well that sexual impulses first go through feelings, emotions and feelings before to express in the body.

Can sport influence your love life?
The euphoric effect of physical activity.
In the fight against and prevention of anxiety disorders , physical exercise is a simple, natural and effective method. We also know a euphoric effect. So much so that some joggers or top athletes, after a long and intense effort, speak of grace, of floating. What coaches commonly call “runner’s ecstasy”.
Once released from the brain, specifically the hypothalamus and pituitary gland , endorphins disperse into the blood, body tissues and central nervous system. With their molecular structure close to that of opiates, these endogenous morphines reduce pain, reduce stress, control breathing and gastrointestinal transit, and provide a sensation of pleasure, euphoria …
Do not hesitate to put yourself or get back to sports, especially since we also know that the amount of endorphins can reach Trialix five times that at rest, after only 30 to 45 minutes of effort. So, before opting for some drugs, think sport. ” Attention, warns Gerard Tixier. It’s not enough to go jogging, and presto! we go to bed. This is not direct access. When you are well and relaxed, the libido has no trouble in finding a way. Physical activity is a facilitator. ”
What factors stimulate your libido
“Sexual function is all the more effective when the individual is in better health”
Endurance activities, such as running, cycling, walking, swimming, rollerblading, cross-country skiing, and indoor cardio-training (rowing, treadmill or walking, stepper, elliptic …) are ideal solutions to stimulate the secretion of endorphins. They also seem to protect against possible erectile dysfunction .
Land training promotes the circulation of blood and the production of nitric oxide by the arteries. Thanks to its vasodilator qualities, it
prevents cardiovascular diseases, risks of cholesterol, but also problems of erections. Nitric oxide dilates the vessels of the body and those of the male sex. By inflating the spongy body in the penis, blood circulation is improved.
Erections are thus easier. In the words of William Master, American sexologist, ” like all other physiological processes, the sexual function is exercised more effectively that the individual is healthier .”

No need to become a top athlete to ensure under the duvet
For many years, the relationship between sport and sexuality has been the subject of many studies. According to recent research, conducted on subjects who have followed a nine-month running sport program, it has been shown that the monthly frequency of intercourse has increased to 12 from 7.
After three months of aerobics dance, women saw their reports increase by 30%. Gentlemen, join Madame at a dance club! It must be said that with greater cardiovascular endurance and better muscle tone, we tire less quickly. Warning ! No need to become a top athlete to ensure under the duvet. Because “too much sport kills the sport”. Overtraining, long-term efforts, affect the libido of both sexes.
Watch out for sports overdose!
In the long run, this overdose results in hormonal disruption. The testosterone level would gradually decrease in the blood, hence a decrease in sexual appetite. A phenomenon that we could compare to amenorrhea, the absence of menstruation in women. Whether you’re doing trail running or bodybuilding, on some level you become narcissistic. ” You end up watching sports. Sexuality is not in narcissism , adds Gérard Tixier. You have to be open to others. Bodybuilders are not the best lovers. Women know it. They are not fooled! ”

Another research by researchers at the University of St. Vincent’s Hospital in Dublin, Ireland, has found that pre-diabetic and overweight people who have dieted up their testosterone levels. 50%.
And if you add to that the results of the Bentley College researchers’ study in Waltham, Mass., You start swimming right away. With one hour of swimming a day, four to five times a week, the 160 swimmers aged 50 to 70 have a sex life similar to that of 20 or 30 year olds. And you will jump into the water even faster knowing that from age 50, the libido diminishes.
