SAVE IT FOR THE BEDROOM: People can be reluctant to share their sex habits – so are you normal?

Mostly As: Strong libido
This is often perceived to be the ideal sex life.
The results suggest that you are at peak sexual drive and have strong physical and mental health.
While your libido looks good, you must be careful that your randy nature doesn’t irritate your partner.
Just because you’re always in the mood, it doesn’t mean they are too!
Mostly Bs: Fluctuating libido
You’re likely to be affected by a chemical or hormonal imbalance that leads to your sex drive going up and down.
This can be caused by a number of lifestyle factors, including alcohol consumption and anti-depressants.
Communicating these problems with your partner can help stabilise your libido.
Mostly Cs: Flat-lining libido
When the honeymoon period is over in your relationship, you may experience a flat-lining libido.
It is perfectly natural to suffer a loss of sex drive every now and again, so it’s important to commit to re-connecting with your body.

Mostly Ds: What libido?
If you’re going through a slump of experiencing little to no sexual desire, you may need to research whether there is an overarching problem.
Whether it be a health or wellbeing issue, or a statement in your relationship, there are many factors that can kill your libido.
If you lose your spark in the bedroom, it could be worth talking to a loved one about your worries.
