Both males and females reject advances from their partners on occasion fairly equally, but females are more known for refusing sex. The pressures of today’s fast-paced existence have taken their toll on many aspects of life, negatively impacting the environment, health of the population, and familial, friend, and workplace relationships.

Love has in many ways become synonymous with sex. It is one of the many ways to express affection for your spouse, and in many cases, is the only way. Couples who are constrained by financial or family pressures often find that they have no time to nurture their relationship.

The demands of life can impair sexual performance in men as well as women. Men mostly face problems with erection and premature or rapid ejaculation, which they try to rectify with premature ejaculation treatments. For women, the natural loss of sex drive can be unrelated to daily pressures and be linked to hormonal changes caused by motherhood or other health issues.

Moreover, the menopause transition time known as perimenopause brings along symptoms of depression, anxiety, irritability, and lack of concentration. Suddenly sex is relegated to the back seat, and the mind starts wandering about chores waiting to be done. All these psychological symptoms in conjunction with atrophic symptoms like vaginal dryness and uro-genital atrophy tend to curb sex drive to a great extent.

Most women during this period tend to seek sexual performance products such as vaginal creams, which provide only temporary solutions.

Ancient therapies and remedies mentioned in local folk lore of ancient tribes can provide a better solution to a lacking sex drive in women and men alike. There have been evidences of tribal people in Brazil, India, Russia and other parts of the world using herbs that are specifically meant to enhance sexual urge and prowess.

Catuaba (Erythroxylum Catuaba) and Eleuthero (Eleutherococcus senticosus--Siberian Ginseng) are native to the Brazilian Amazon and Eastern Russia respectively, and have been in use for centuries to enhance the female sex drive. Among the Traditional Therapies, Indian medicine specifically mentions Ashwagandha (Withania somnifera) as a strong Ayurvedic herb meant for women as well as men for promoting a passionate sex life. These herbs are referred to as adaptogenic herbs, which are non-toxic and produce responses in the body, such as an increase in power to resist physical, chemical, and biological stressors.
