Yes, I know nearly all industries use sex in their taglines and ads to sell more products or attract more eyeballs. It is nothing new. The health and fitness industry is perhaps the biggest culprit. I’ve joked with colleagues of mine in the fitness magazine world that the only three headlines on the covers I see while checking out at the grocery store are, “Get ripped abs for summer”, “look good naked”, and “tips for bigger biceps”.
While obviously a blatant attempt to score on our collective desire to score, there is some real truth in those headlines.
I’ve been working with unwell people for over a decade. I spent many of those years at the pharmacy counter engaging in some pretty intimate conversations about “performance deficits” and unwanted side-effects. In my role as a coordinator for chronic condition care, I’ve had the same conversations with people about their sexual performance and desire. Sex is definitely affected by the same behaviors that lead to sickness.
It makes perfect sense if you think about it. Sex is for reproduction. Why would nature want sick people to reproduce?
Sounds harsh doesn’t it?
Well the good news is that if your behaviors have created the problem, you have the power to correct the problem. You have the power to get your sexy back!

Sex drive and performance is the canary in the coal mine for health and wellness. It is usually the first thing to go but it doesn’t always have to be the last thing to return. Making small changes can have a huge impact.
