How Lack Of Sleep Can Prevent You From Being A Great Lover

If you’re feeling that your sex drive isn’t quite what it used to be, the best thing you can do is go for a snooze. No, really. Being constantly sleep-deprived can easily bring down your interest in lovemaking in the long run.

As it turns out, there are a number of important factors when it comes to keeping your sex drive up to par. And one of these factors is having a healthy and regular sleep pattern. Let me explain what I mean…

According to a study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, chronic sleep deprivation doesn’t just affect the body’s ability to repair and rejuvenate damaged cells and tissues. It also disrupts the normal production of the sex hormone, testosterone, which can upset a man’s sex drive sooner or later.

Based from the information gathered by the researchers at the University of Chicago, men who are chronically deprived of sleep suffer more than the usual fatigue, lack of focus, reduced immunity as well as irritability.

Remarkably, recurring bouts of sleeplessness also slow down the replenishment of testosterone that can lead to problems during lovemaking. Besides having very low sex drive levels, men with poor sleep patterns will also have trouble getting sexually aroused and achieving a stable erection the next time things get hot in the bedroom.

Unless there is an ideal supply of testosterone in a man’s body, chances are his ability to get ready for sex will be compromised. It is basically the hormone that the endocrine system releases during sexual arousal to stimulate the body to make the male erogenous zones more sensitive and direct a larger than usual amount of blood to the erectile tissues in the penis to firm it up.

After subjecting 10 young men between the ages of 24 to 30 to several tests, which basically involved cutting back their sleeping cycles to less than six hours and below in a consecutive number of days, the scientists at the University of Chicago discovered that the continuous lack of shuteye impedes the endocrine system from functioning properly, to the point of making it “age” abnormally.

This makes it extremely hard for the endocrine system to produce sufficient testosterone levels that can significantly affect a man’s sexual performance.

They were able to observe that while the study’s participants were in the time of their lives when they were at their most virile, their endocrine systems functioned as if they were already in their late 60’s or 70’s.

Besides having a very tough time getting an erection, the respondents also reported it was really difficult maintaining one as well.

Interestingly, the University of Chicago researchers pointed out that it’s not that tough to keep testosterone levels ideal. Simply making it a point to have 6 to 7 hours of sleep daily already ensures that your endocrine system is going to stay as vigorous as ever, keeping the production of testosterone in the body up to par.

Now we’ve got that covered, here’s a mistake that can prevent your lover from achieving orgasm.
