#Relationships: 5 Habits That Can Hamper Your Sexual Performance

August 17, 2020 | by Akanksha Narang

It’s like our egos and confidence are compressed and fitted in our genitals because somehow our sexual performance can make us feel a lot. Have you ever impressed yourself by pulling off some really sexy movies while doing bae? Like woah, did I just discover a new sex position? And similarly, his self-confidence is at its peak when his fingers can make you moan in pleasure. It almost feels like you’re the art and he’s the artist.

On the other hand, when your sex drive or performance isn’t quite good, you wonder if something’s wrong with you. You overthink that he must be so turned off and that you disappointed him. Men too feel really awkward if on a particular night they aren’t able to sustain an erection. And while it shouldn’t be that way, I do feel being good in bed is so important. Why should we miss out on such an amazing pleasure in life? Why should our partners miss out on it? Plus, there are so many benefits – physical, mental, emotional.

It’s important to think, what went wrong on those days when you sucked in bed? Okay, for the sake of your ego—when you didn’t give it your best. Here are some habits that could be ruining your sexual performance.

1) Not getting enough sleep

Lack of sleep can reduce testosterone in our bodies, the hormone that’s responsible for sex drive. This means that not getting enough sleep can interfere with erections and reduce desire in women. You will also find it difficult to orgasm without having rested well.

2) Drinking like a fish

Well, don’t get surprised and tell me that you’re at your sexiest best after two pegs down. When you drink in moderation, your walls are down and you feel uninhibited, which is always a good thing in sex. But when you’re too drunk, your blood circulation and brain function reduces. Alcohol also makes you numb to sensations, which is why you find it difficult to self-lubricate and orgasm.

3) Smoking like a chimney

Nicotine consumption reduces genital stimulation in men. Women on the other hand experience reduced blood flow to the clitoris along with a bad impact on our sex hormones. We all know what clitoris does, right? It is like the sweet spot where orgasms reside.

4) Stressing

When you’re stressed about something, it’s difficult to enjoy a sex sesh. Firstly, it increases cortisol in your body, which in turn has a negative impact on your sex drive. In fact, achieving orgasm, they say is all in your head and requires you to feel completely relaxed. So if you’re used to overthinking, clear your head and just be.

5) Consuming too much sugar

“The sweet stuff increases levels of the hormone insulin, which can cause you to store belly fat, lose muscle mass and send your testosterone levels spiraling,” says Eatthis.com. Testosterone as we know is the hormone responsible for your sex drive. So do not go bingeing on desserts at the end of the date. We don’t know what that can do to your time between the sheets. Plus, if you consumed alcohol, remember that too had sugar!
