Will exercise affect your sex life?
by Michelle Cole on Dec 29, 2021
The new year is right around the corner! You know what that means, new year’s resolutions. New year's resolution for most people usually has to do with health and exercise. Does exercising affect your libido? The answer is yes but it may not be because of what you think. According to Tulane Urology excessive exercise may lower men's testosterone by 20-40% resulting in a low libido. This lowering in testosterone is due to high volume endurance training. Excessive exercise will not permanently affect your hormones. Once you begin moderate amounts of exercise your hormone levels will begin to level out. Moderate exercise will keep you healthy and keep your hormones balanced for intimacy.
A study done by the University of North Carolina found 1,077 active men who trained at a low intensity were seven times more likely to report a normal to high libido than men who trained at a high intensity. The study also acknowledges the research already done in the past stating active men do also have a higher libido than sedentary men. Another study published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise also correlates low libido with excessive endurance training. The study also stated strength training boosts libido, they are not entirely sure why that is. But they think the correlation between a boost in libido and strength training is strength training relieves stress more than endurance training. Naveed Saleh MD also states doing kegels can help men and women boost their libidos. Kegels strengthen women’s vaginal walls resulting in a more intense orgasm. When men do kegels they build up the strength to sustain longer erections.
A study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine claims that yoga aids in premature ejaculation. The study also states women who do yoga consistently see improvements in all aspects of their sex lives including; arousal, desire, orgasm, lubrication, and satisfaction. Women over the age of 45 who do yoga regularly see even more improvements in their sex lives.
A Harvard study also found that men who walk or swim 30 minutes a day may decrease erectile dysfunction by 41%. A separate study done by Harvard showed that men who moderately exercise can prevent erectile dysfunction later in life.
In conclusion, if your new year's resolution is to work out, keeping in mind balance is key. It’ll be ok if some of your cardio days are just in the bedroom. Moderate exercise in conjunction with Libido Drops will be a great way to ensure a happy and healthy 2022.
