I am interested in some advice on things I can do to enhance my libido. I have lost 6 lovers due to my disinterest in engaging in sexual activities. I am heterosexual yet I haven't met anyone that compels me to think about having sex.

Is there something I can do that will help me be more sexually attentive other than XXX flicks?

Sexual libido is like a hunger. Some people get hungry, others do not. If a person does not get hungry, looking at pictures of food or watching a video of people eating will not make the viewer crave food. Watching "XXX flicks" will not help you.

Sexual desire is most often associated with hormone levels. Talk to your gynecologist about having your blood analyzed to see if you are low on certain hormones. Also, talk to your doctor about any medication you are taking, as certain prescription and over-the-counter drugs can lower sexual desire.
