How to decrease libido?

How to decrease libido? I have a high sex drive and this has been been bothering me for quite a while, as it is hard to concentrate in other things (sometimes impossible). Is there some natural herb to help?

Eat more soy. Soy is used by some monks to keep down sexual urges and distractions. Soy decreases high testosterone levels that are responsible for libido health in men.
Take a supplement containing chasteberry. Chasteberry has a chemical compound that will decrease high libido
Are you on any hormone meds. as some can increase libido. Also stress can increase It.

I'm not on any hormones or meds.

I thought about chasteberry, but I've heard that in some cases it increases libido, so I didn't give it a shot.

Mehan snan (penis bath); This soother the sexual urge. Stretch the part of the tip of foreskin and pour water(room temperature) on the stretched part. This has to be done everday for 15 minutes a day.
Breathing; Deep abdominal breathing will also help in reducing the sexual urge.
Circulationg energy on microcosmic orbit; Governor chennal and functional channel makes up the microcosmic orbit.Goveror channel starts from perineum to anus, to sacral region,to shoulder blade to neck and neck to crown of the head on spinal column.Functional channel starts from crown of the head to center of the forehead,tip of the nose,to throat via roof of the mouth, going down to chest, abdomen,to penis and back to perineum.This is the complet orbit. While inhaling start circulating your awareness from Perineum and reach the crown or the head and while exhaling bring your awarness down to perineum on functional channel.This type of circulation of awareness invigorates all energy centers by sexual energy. This should be done when you are sexually excited. You may even masturbate to have erection.This is Chinese meditation to convert sexual energy to spiritual energy.In yoga it is called arousing kundalini energy.It was remarked that if you cannot have erection , do not do this technique.This is a beautiful life changing experience.

To-day, I am very happy as I have shared the subject with a person who can really utilize the information and prove my faith in the technique. I studied the book entitled chinese meditation. Ane tried to circulate energy on all important meridians (12). I can't say I was successful. However, I could sustain my interest in the subject till date. I sincerely hope you learn and practice this technique. I do not advocate celibacy. You can direct your extra drive through this technique. we may discuss this subject if you are interested Sorry for such a long post.

I did some of this some years back.  There is a series of books on Taoist meditation by Mantak Chia -- I think that's the spelling.  May be out of print.  He got in trouble with the Chinese over it, because for many years they wanted to keep kung fu completely secret.    One was on sexual kung fu and how particular circulating of energy could achieve various outcomes.

As to the general post, one question that hasn't been asked is how old you are.  As to soy, it won't affect libido at all -- I think billions of Asians who eat it every day will attest to that.  Chastetree berry used to be used by European Christian monks to quiet their libido, thus the colloquial name of the plant.  It's mainly used by women for elevating progesterone.  But if you're a young man, there's not much you're going to be able to do about your libido.  That doesn't mean you have to act on it, but it's a natural part of growing up.  For most of history, people haven't lived that long, and a strong libido was necessary to have many children at a young age so that some would survive.  It's strictly biological.  If you're not a young man, then you have to look elsewhere for reasons, but I don't see this as a supplement or medicine issue but as a mind control issue.  Use it as that, but don't judge it -- when you lose your libido, you'll miss it.

Another exercise is Deer exercise for male and woman. Both exercises are different. In fact it is used for increasing sexual virility. However, as almost all alternative therapies, work as balancing the function of organs, this exercise may reduce the libido to balance out the energy. One can try to reduce libido with this exercise.
