Libido

Definition - What does Libido mean?

Libido refers to one's appetite for sex; it is also known as the sex drive. It is determined by several factors including the psychological, biological, health, and social well-being of a person. Biological causes of libido fluctuations include testosterone levels and hormonal imbalances. Psychological conditions, such as stress and personality disorders, can also affect an individual's sex life. One's social environment and health also have direct implications on a person's libido. If the community frowns upon sex, then it can affect individual sex appetites in the same way that relationship issues do.

Kinkly explains Libido

A healthy appetite for sex is an important aspect of intimate relationships. The lack of libido and, adversely, the lack of sex within a relationship can create problems. It could be that partners have different libido levels. One may resort to infidelity to satisfy unfulfilled desires. Ideally, partners need to talk about their sexual expectations at the start of their relationship. It is natural for desire to fluctuate because of changing personal circumstances. It is important to agree to work on this, should it happen. Temporary low levels of libido can be mitigated with simple gestures, such as date nights, equal splitting of household chores, or making the bedroom conducive for romance. In certain cases, it may be necessary to get a doctor's advice. Libido fluctuations may be caused by prescription drugs, such as birth control pills and medications.
