How Extreme Stress Can Ruin Your Sex Life
Now while this may sound surprising, going through extreme stress and not doing anything to correct it can easily cause your sex life to wane. Sure, stress may be a normal part of a man’s life, but having too much of it at once can lead to severe problems between the sheets.
Although it may not matter to you now, knowing how extreme stress can ruin your sex life could save you a lot of pain in the future. So if you’re looking to keep lovemaking as awesome as you can with your lover, here are a few pointers you need to take note of…
Firstly, extreme stress can force you to take up bad habits.
Men have different ways of coping with stress. Some play basketball and lift weights at the gym while others choose to watch movies or get creative in the kitchen. However, when it comes to extreme stress, unhealthy habits like excessive smoking and drinking usually come into play.
If you’ve been following Advice For Him closely, I’ve always pointed out the dangers of drinking and smoking too much. Besides putting you at risk of potentially fatal health problems like stroke, diabetes, heart disease and cancer in the long run, you’ll also have a tough time achieving a stable erection and keeping your libido up.
Secondly, extreme stress can lead to poor self-esteem.
Going through too much stress makes you focus more on your negative traits rather than the positive ones. It fills your head with lots of crazy thoughts, from doubts about your physical appearance to doubts about whether you’re big enough “down there” to satisfy your lover.
Poor self-esteem basically makes you avoid sex. And less sex means your lover isn’t having the sexual satisfaction she needs. Sadly, this also leads to your lover being disinterested in you. And therefore there’s a very big possibility that she will unexpectedly leave you for another man who can give her everything she needs in bed.
Thirdly, extreme stress can greatly lessen your sexual pleasure.
Extreme stress dampens your natural sexual responses by overloading your brain with negativity. Instead of allowing you to enjoy lovemaking, you’ll only end up thinking about other things while having sex. This will happen each and every time you have sex if you don’t exert an effort to make things better. If constantly ignored, extreme stress can also lead to severe sexual anxiety that can become a real challenge to fix. (You can also fix this by knowing how to really arouse her sexually.)
