Studies suggest that 30 per cent of young and middle-aged women in the US go through long periods feeling little or no desire for sex. In fact, women face a lack of lust more than any other sexual problem, be it an inability to climax or pain during intercourse. There are no recent local studies on this topic. Dips in sex drive are often involuntary and there could be a gazillion reasons why. Another major factor that influences sex drive is stress, suggests Dr Martha Lee, founder and clinical sexologist of Eros Coaching.
It’s important that you feel sexy and sexual in yourself, so focus on some self-care
Soul singer Betty Everett once proclaimed, "If you want to know if he loves you so, it's in his kiss. Specifically, where your date looks at you could indicate whether love or lust is in the cards. The new study found that eye patterns concentrate on a stranger's face if the viewer sees that person as a potential partner in romantic love, but the viewer gazes more at the other person's body if he or she is feeling sexual desire. That automatic judgment can occur in as little as half a second, producing different gaze patterns. Cacioppo co-authored the report, now published online in the journal Psychological Science , with colleagues from UChicago's Departments of Psychiatry and Psychology, and the University of Geneva. Previous research by Cacioppo has shown that different networks of brain regions are activated by love and sexual desire.

I can only orgasm in one position so I am just putting up with other positions for him; often with a degree of discomfort. How can I get my sex life back?

Exercising, working on body-positivity and self-esteem, and solo masturbation, are all ways you can focus on your own body and desire, and may also kick-start your desire for sex with your partner. Which brings us on to the issue of the sex you are having.
Men looking for a one-night stand appear more masculine-looking with a squarer jaw, smaller eyes and larger nose, a new study has revealed. The Durham University-led survey of showed that young heterosexual men and women in their 20s are looking for complete opposites when it comes to relationships. Those on the left want to settle down but those on the right are more promiscuous. Men generally prefer women whom they perceive to be open to short-term sexual relationships, the study showed, but women are usually interested in men who seem to have the potential to be a long-term partner. Scientists behind the study said people use their first impressions to quickly make an informed decision about their partner selection and what kind of relationship they want. Participants were asked to judge the attractiveness and attitudes to sex of the opposite sex from a photo of their face. The findings, published in Evolution and Human Behaviour, indicate subtle facial expressions give away more than was previously thought.
