Do something together
It could be going to the movies, taking up a new hobby or even just reading the morning papers over breakfast. Spending time together will make you feel closer and more secure in your bond. It’s the easiest, most natural way to boost your libido, and one thing should lead to another…
Exercise is actually one of the best natural ways to boost your libido
All those endorphins will improve your mood, and you’ll have loads more energy for…whatever it is you want to do! And if you exercise together, you’ll be killing two birds with one stone.
Touch each other
No, we don’t mean like that (although that would be okay, too)! Affection plays an important role in intimacy and studies have shown that skin-to-skin contact with a romantic interest will make you feel more connected. So, hold hands, give your partner a massage or ask him for a foot rub.
Create a playlist
We tend to forget that sex has to do with more than just our sense of touch. A great soundtrack with upbeat songs (or slow, romantic melodies — the choice is yours) will help set the scene and get you in the mood.

‘Have sex’ may seem like strange advice for someone who wants to know how to want to have more sex, but having regular sex will naturally boost your libido and make you crave it more. Win-win! So even though you may not be in the mood, making time for sex is incredibly important.
Read a sexy novel
Remember what 50 Shades did for couples EVERYWHERE in 2011? Enough said!
A Bar-One, although delicious, won’t boost your libido. You need to go for good quality dark chocolate (around 70%). That’s because it contains the compound phenylethylamine, which we naturally produce when we’re in love… so THAT explains our addiction!

Send a saucy message
Sometimes the anticipation of sex is just as exciting as the act itself. Well…almost. Some saucy sexting in the mid-afternoon will give both you and your partner something exciting to look forward to when you get home. Enjoy!
Taste the ‘forbidden’ fruit
Pumpkin seeds, bananas, figs, avocado and one glass of wine (yes, only one… maybe two if you really need it, but any more than that and things might get a bit messy) will all do wonders for boosting your libido.
