Men tend to have higher sex drives than women. That’s why scientists have been working hard to figure out different ways to boost a woman’s libido, so that heterosexual women can be on the same page as their male partners. If you’re comfortable with the idea of taking medication or changing your entire lifestyle in hopes of having a higher sex drive, then you can test out these innovative ways to boost your female libido:


Men have had access to Viagra for years, so it’s about time for women to have a libido boosting pill of their own. The Food And Drug Administration finally approved Addyi, which is meant for women who suffer from a lack of desire to have sex. Even though the drug is now set to be sold in stores, it was rejected twice in the past, which some people considered sexist. After all, if there are drugs meant to boost a man’s sex drive, then there should be pills available for women as well – and now there will be.

Testosterone Therapy

Testosterone isn’t just for men. There’s a small amount present in female bodies that aids their libido. That’s why women can benefit from testosterone therapy, which has been proven to increase their sex drive, lubrication, and intensity of orgasm. LibiGel is the most convenient form of this therapy; it’s a gel that is simply applied to the arm, where it is absorbed into her bloodstream through her skin.

Edible Aphrodisiacs

There are certain foods that are considered aphrodisiacs. If your loved one is coming over for a date, then you should stock up on watermelon, oysters, and bananas if you’re looking to get lucky. Even chocolate is considered to be an aphrodisiac, because it has been proven to boost a person’s mood. So don’t feel too guilty about shoving candy in your mouth when you’re on a diet. Whatever calories you consume will be burned off in the bedroom if your libido is high enough.

No Phthalates Or Paraben

Phthalates and Paraben can disrupt certain hormones in your body, which means they can lower the testosterone that aids your sex drive. These chemicals are found in certain lotions, shaving creams, and plastic bottles, so make sure you’re careful about which products you’re using in your everyday life. You don’t want to inadvertently lower your sex drive by buying the wrong products.


L-arginine is present in red meat and fish, so you can simply eat those food products if you wish to boost your libido. If you’re not a habitual carnivore, you can take over-the-counter medications that contain L-arginine. Either way, it should help turn up your sex drive.


The healthier your body is, the higher your libido will be. That’s why you should try to exercise as often as you can. If you’re in a relationship, then it’s a great idea to exercise alongside your partner, because the smell of sweat is actually another libido booster for women. Even though you might not realize it, the chemicals found in your partner’s sweat are a natural turn on, so don’t be afraid to get physical together on a run before you get physical beneath the sheets.
