Surprising Libido Boosters for Women

From yoga to asking your man to wear red, we have four simple things you can do to boost your sex drive

Easy Ways for Women to Increase Libido

Okay ladies – let’s be frank. Loss of libido isn’t just a male issue. It affects many women as well. Here are some surprising libido boosters you can start trying right now. Bring the spark back to the bedroom!

  1. Scare Yourself – A study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, men and women find the opposite sex more alluring after being in an adrenaline-pumping situation. Researchers suggest that when you’re doing something exciting, your heart is racing and your nervous system is activated, just like they would be if you were sexually aroused.
  2. Choose Red Wine – instead of the classic champagne or a white wine, opt for red. Researchers found that women who drank a glass of red wine daily reported higher levels of sexual desire compared with those who drank any kind of alcohol occasionally or those who didn’t drink at all. They suspect that the high levels of antioxidants in red wine may help blood vessels widen, which can increase blood flow to key arousal areas.
  3. Strike a Pose – a yoga pose, that is. Yoga does more than just increase your flexibility – it may boost your libido, too. A review published in the Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy, suggests that yoga makes you more familiar with your body, which in turn can help you get in touch with your sexuality.
  4. Ask Him to Wear Red – turns out seeing your man wearing this hot, fiery color can actually put you in the mood, according to a study out of the University of Rochester. Researchers suggest that red is a power color and that can turn some women on.
