10. You’re Crazy-Stressed.
It’s no secret that your never-ending to-do list is a major buzzkill when it comes to sex. But besides totally wiping your energy, chronic stress can also trigger a cascade of hormonal changes that mess with your body’s ability to become aroused. Cortisol, the stress hormone, suppresses the production of testosterone—which women need to feel revved up for sex.
Keep your stress under control by setting boundaries and prioritizing intimate activity, which is just as important as any other activity on your calendar, if not more! So many women end up not wanting to have sex or not engaging fully in it because their minds are racing elsewhere.
Set a technology time limit and lock the bedroom door in the evenings, and you could even put some sex dates on the books—which shows you both that you’re making sex a priority.
