Admit it, there are days when the last thing you feel like doing is getting down and dirty with your man. However, if this goes on for a long period of time, it’s time to break the spell and give your sex drive a much-needed boost.

We’re not referring to talking dirty or sexting here. When you’ve been with your man for a while, conversations tend to turn to more practical things, like whether to go to your parents’ house this weekend or which new restaurant you’d like to try. It’s hard to get in the mood when you’re talking about such non-sexy things, so change it up by bringing up that dirty weekend you had or how you really liked that thing he did to you that one time.

Yes, exercise really has a lot of benefits. When you do a workout, it makes you more confident about your body and thus can boost your sex drive too. Even a yoga class or a brisk half-hour walk will get your juices flowing and you’ll feel more aroused as a result. Or, better still, exercise together, so you’ll both be revved up when you’re done.

The more you concentrate on trying to have sex, the more difficult it gets. Take the focus off sex and spend quality time with your man instead. Go on a date, do something together that you enjoy or just spend time kissing and touching each other. Once you’re both close together, it will boost your sex drive too.

If your bedroom is very messy, it could be affecting your sex drive too. Clear away the clutter and make it a place that’s purely for sexy time – and sleep too, of course. So put the TV in the living room, get rid of the stack of books beside your bed and add some mood lamps or luxury sheets.

It sounds too good to be true but chocolate and red wine – no, you don’t need to consume them together – are great aphrodisiacs that will get you in the mood. Other food items that work as aphrodisiacs too – but are probably not as fun – include avocado, bananas and figs.
