When you undermine yourself, do not see a confident you when you look in the mirror, pull yourself down, your desire to get naked in front of someone, your performance level, all are affected. It dampens your mood, your desires and you question yourself for nothing.
His / her smell
How your partner smells makes a big difference to your sex drive. If he /she does not use deodorant, smells of sweat, food, the last thing you want to do is have sex. It is a major turn off!
