Oh my – the female libido is a complicated animal.

As if we didn’t already have enough to cope with trying a manage a body that throws us hormonal wobblies or which won’t respond to diet and exercise the way we’d like, we might have to contend with a libido that sends us on a roller coaster too.

If you know more about your libido you can be more sympathetic to its vagaries but also understand how to deal with it if it throws you a curve ball.

1. More Testosterone = Higher Libido

We all talk about testosterone when it comes to men's libidos, but what you might not know is that in younger women especially, there is a higher level of testosterone circulating in the body.3

This means that your libido will be higher in your younger years and is thought to be the reason for women's decreased sex drive in older age.2

2. Aphrodisiac Foods Don't Exist

One of the biggest misconceptions and things to know about your libido is that aphrodisiac foods don't actually appear to work from a scientific point of view.

We have all heard tales about things like oysters and asparagus working to make people feel more amorous, but the science tells us that aside from being a nice dinner, these foods do nothing to physically increase your libido.

It's more psychological.

3. Women's Libido Peaks Later than Men's

It is not surprising to discover that a man's libido and sex drive peaks at the young age of eighteen, but what might be a bit of a shock is that for women the highest level of libido is said to be present a long while later, around the age of thirty-two.

Of course, this is an average generalization but overall a woman's libido in her younger years has more to compete with including pregnancy, ovulation and potential pregnancy.
