Travel more: A study conducted in Britain suggests that travelling could actually improve your health, help to lose weight, gain confidence, feel younger and even increase sex drive. The survey conducted by the travel portal Expedia claimed that more than one million respondents said that travelling increased their sex drive.

Travelling can help reduce the levels of the stress hormone cortisol. As stress and anxiety decrease, mood increases bringing many, often unexpected, positive benefits in how we perceive ourselves, motivation and productivity, and our general outlook on life, Linda Papadopoulos, who worked with Expedia on the study, said in a statement.

According to the study, couples who regulated their emotions together in a satisfactory manner were more fulfilled sexually, psychologically, and relationally.
Sleep for one more hour: Women should sleep for an extra one hour than usual to experience an enhanced sexual desire next day, said a study published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. Each additional hour of sleep increased the likelihood of sexual activity with a partner by 14 per cent and lowered problems related to vaginal arousal than women who obtained less sleep.

Ssexpectations the need to work on sexual growth or rely on sexual destiny are so powerful they can either sustain otherwise healthy relationships or undermine them. According to the research carried out by the University of Toronto, people who believe in sexual growth not only believe they can work on their sexual problems, but they are not letting it affect their relationship satisfaction.
Be in love: Being in love and commitment can make sex physically more satisfying for many women, notes a study. In our study, women said that they connected love with sex and that love actually enhanced the physical experience of sex, said Beth Montemurro, associate professor of sociology from Penn State Abington. In the study, most women said they believed love was necessary for maximum satisfaction in both sexual relationships and marriage.
Most of the women in the study said that love made sex physically more pleasurable. Women who loved their sexual partners also said they felt less inhibited to explore their sexuality.

According to the study at the Medical University of Graz, Austria, men with high blood vitamin D levels have significantly higher testosterone levels than men with less vitamin D.
Women, have more male friends: An interesting study revealed that women who have more male friends indulge in a lot more carnal activity with their partners than couples where the female has fewer male friends, says a new study. This is because men perceive male friends in the lives of their female partners as sex rivals . This is human nature. We need to be reminded that our partner is valuable to us and desirable to others. This makes us keep working at maintaining relationship satisfaction, said lead researcher Michael Pham from the Oakland University in the US.
