  • Decreased Sex Drive: The Emotional Contributors to Lack of Desire & What to Do About

    A decreased sex drive is extremely common in Americans, with experts estimating that between 40 percent and 50 percent of women – and 20 percent to 25 percent of men – have a low sex drive.

    The reasons are multi-faceted, of course, ranging from physical problems to aging and in women menopause, but there is almost always an additional factor that overwhelmingly plays into the mix: emotions.

    Sex and desire, granted, do have a physical component, but rarely does it overshadow the emotional one. Your mental state must be in a good place if you are to experience good sex, or even have a desire for it. Among the many emotional states that can hamper your sex drive are:
    • Depression
    • Anger or resentment toward your partner
    • Distractions (thinking about financial trouble, work pressures, etc.)
    • Low self-esteem
    • Fear that you won't perform
    • Guilt
    • Anxiety about an upcoming event
    • Stress in general

    Meanwhile, in order to truly have a strong sexual desire several things must be in alignment:
    • You must be physically attracted to your partner
    • You must be mentally stimulated by your partner
    • You must be free of stress, anxiety and distractions
    • You must have confidence in yourself, and feel good about yourself

    How to Gain an Optimal Mindset and Increase Your Sex Drive

    Most of us are carrying around a lot of mental baggage that weighs us down from day to day. Often, it's hard to put this mental baggage out of our minds, even just long enough for some intimacy. However, The Sedona Method is a tool that can help you to release your mental baggage simply, effectively and quickly, so that you can experience the peace of mind necessary to increase your sex drive.

    The Sedona Method will also show you how to release other negative feelings, like low self-esteem, that may be holding you back from intimacy. Interestingly, according to Hale Dwoskin, CEO and director of training of Sedona Training Associates, it’s important to release your mental baggage not only before sex, but during and after as well.

    “In order to be truly satisfying, sex requires some openness and willingness to feel – even if it is just physically. When we open ourselves to how we feel, we may actually feel worse after sex than when we started because the momentary high of sex has worn off,” he says.

    “Also, when we open ourselves to someone else, we begin to feel how they are feeling. This too can bring our own, sometimes unpleasant, feelings to the forefront. If you let go before, during and after sex you will enjoy it a lot more – and be a much better partner as well,” Dwoskin adds.

    The Sedona Method has already helped hundreds of thousands of people to achieve joy and success in all aspects of their lives. You, too, deserve to experience the freedom of mind, body and spirit and all of its associated benefits that The Sedona Method can bring.
