Low libido in men is one of those things that must be handled with care less the male ego is crushed. I urge women with men suffering with this issues to handle them with care. Women with such men, like Grace below, should do everything to boot their men’s ego. See her question below:
Dear Getrude, my husband got laid off a couple of months ago, as a result, he lost his libido. This is now our marriage is suffering please help me get him up….Grace.
Dear Grace, According to Cambridge dictionary is a great worry caused by a difficult situation, or something that causes this condition like stress induces Low libido. Low libido usually associated with women. Thus, when man have low libido, they don’t admit to it; even to themselves. Unless the man is impotent. Society and especially his wife expects him to raise to the occasion again and again.
Society hardly accepts that men can have low libido
In fact if he doesn’t pester the woman now and then them she get very suspicious. This may prompts the woman to do some investigations. To ensure he is not dogging on her. When sure she finally gathers enough courage to ask for it. Should he respond with her usual “headache” excuse, then she would feel dejected and unloved. This is because most women believe men are always “ready” at a moments notice.
Causes of low libido in Men
Men too could go through a dry spell! Truth is, there is a growing number of men who suffer from low sex drive. Researchers estimate that, up to 20% of all men suffer from low libido. Most of which is due to stress and depression. Other issues could be obesity, high blood pressure, diabetes and medication. Lack of sleep, anger and substance abuse (alcohol and drugs) could also contribute.
Your husband’s low libido could be as a result of stress and or depression. Given his loss of a job. You could also be the reason, especially if you are on his face about his loss of employment. He could also be seeing someone else – now that he has all this time on his hand.
How to turn the situation around
Assuming he doesn’t have any underlying conditions. The solution would be to reintroduce lovemaking, which should improve his drive. As the Italians say, the appetite comes while eating. Sex is great to boost his ego and get him off depression and back on his feet again.
The challenge is how to seduce given his current state of mind. This is where I tell the woman they must know their men very well. Including their weakness as far as exciting them in bed.
Once he is hooked and is ready for fireworks, the woman must take control and use that signature move that will have him breathless, speechless but blissfully content. It must be the good lovemaking that makes people sleep like babies. The next day he will probably woke up on a conquest to conquer the world!
