What’s Killing Your Libido?

You’re Hitting the Gym Less

If improved health and a trimmer tummy aren’t enough to get you to lace up your sneakers and exercise, will the possibility of a fired up sex life do the trick? Sex is a sport — it requires cardio and muscular endurance, strength and flexibility. Working out will not only bring you the stamina you need for long-lasting action in the bedroom, but it also increases blood flow throughout the body, which can help combat erectile dysfunction in men and increase sexual response in the vagina and clitoris for women.

Need another reason to get moving? Those exercise-induced feel-good endorphins coursing through your veins, paired with a leaner, more toned physique, will help to send your self-esteem soaring, making you feel sexier than ever.
