Keep It Up!
Conventional medicine often fails to connect the dots
between how lifestyle factors – including our diet
(especially low-fat, high-carb and sugar-packed diets),
drinking alcohol and smoking, exposure to environmental
toxins, and being chronically stressed
contribute to and exacerbate sex hormone imbalances.
Lifestyle factors matter, but no contest:
The biggest culprit that knocks sex hormones
out of balance is sugar in its many forms,
including flour which converts to sugar.
Sugar raises insulin and creates a hormonal domino
effect. Subsequently, high insulin adversely impacts
other hormones. Simply put, excessive sugar can
wreck your sex life.
Sugar also lowers testosterone in men and alters
testosterone metabolism in women. Testosterone
isn’t just a guy’s hormone. Out-of-balance levels
can reduce desire, increase body fat, lower muscle
mass and create fuzzy memory.
Get Your Mojo Back
Get some garlic, ginseng and ginger into your diet.
All are libido boosters, even with that garlic breath.
A small amount (4 oz) of the right kind of chocolate
on a daily basis can work wonders too.
Look for chocolate with high cocoa content (50% or more).
Low levels of zinc can reduce the libido.
Get more zinc from wholemeal bread, brown rice,
dark green leafy vegetables, lean red meat,
turkey and shellfish, especially oysters.
Mojo, in the African-American folk belief called hoodoo,
is an amulet consisting of a flannel bag containing one
or more magical items. It is a “prayer in a bag”, or a
spell that can be carried with or on the host’s body.
Hoodoo is a set of spiritual practices, traditions and beliefs which were created and concealed from slaveholders by enslaved Africans in North America. Hoodoo evolved from various traditional African religions and practices, and in the American South, incorporated various elements of indigenous botanical knowledge.
Get It on Girl
A woman’s orgasm may have a lot to do with her ability
to focus on her body and steer her thoughts a certain way.
Those regularly reaching orgasm during sex seemed to be more
focused on their bodily sensations during intercourse than
women who had trouble having regular orgasms with their partners
Also, women in the study who regularly reached orgasm during sex
reported having more erotic thoughts when they were having
intercourse than those who didn’t orgasm regularly during sex.
Both groups of women reported having and equal number of
erotic thoughts during self-stimulation. It goes to show…
Relax When You Want to Come
Flag-waving right-wing Americans loudly
proclaim that we are the land of the free.
Yet this freedom apparently does not extend to
sexual matters, and our society pays more
dearly for that than most people are aware.
We no longer hang people for having sex out of wedlock
or clamp spiked rings over the penises of masturbators.
But we can still hear the harpies of morality
screeching their anti-sex agendas from pulpits
and campaign platforms across the country.
