What can a woman do when her sex drive is more powerful than her partner’s? We have heard from innumerable women with this problem. Sex and desire are still sufficiently taboo topics that there are very few conventional methods of dealing with mismatched sex drives. Perhaps, though, a daily cup of mint tea may help some couples.
Mint Tea Throttled Back Her Sex Drive:
Q. I am a 34-year-old woman with a 53-year-old husband. I love him so much but he has ED, and in the last year his sex drive has dropped as well.
I always let him approach me for sex as the other way round doesn’t work. We usually make love once a month although I would prefer daily or at least once a week. I think about sex with him a lot.
I was fascinated to read that mint tea might dampen sexual interest, so I tried it. With a cup of mint tea morning and evening, I soon lost my constant nagging desire. I am so thrilled, as it has made things much easier.
Others have said we with the desire are the normal ones, and our partners should get help to raise their libido. In an ideal world, this is true. But you can’t change other people, only yourself. I hope the tea works as well for others in this situation as it has for me.
Mint Tea and Testosterone:
A. Spearmint tea (Mentha spicata) can lower testosterone levels. A woman might find this could help her reduce her sex drive (Phytotherapy Research, Feb. 2010). Not everyone will respond as you did, but others in your position may want to consider this herbal approach.
