Get The Sex Drive Of An 18-Year-Old
You Do: Eat Red Meat
Eat beef or chicken liver once a week – and cook it in a frying pan until it’s firm, to preserve iron and proteins. Your body’s ability to get blood to its extremities declines with age, so a diet rich in red meat and iron assists your heart and its romantic designs. “As you age, lipids in your blood vessels slow the flow,” says surgeon Dr Charles Clark. “Contrary to popular belief, those who eat the most red meat have the least cholesterol, meaning a faster flow – and more satisfying sex.”
You Do: Downsize Your Ego
Being happy means bringing your ego down to size, says psychologist Jane Prince. You do this best at 32 – the psychological tipping point between youth and experience. “You become more confident in judgment, but still have lots of energy.” Prince suggests a thought exercise called outside overview. “Imagine yourself looking at your relationship and working out a solution that doesn’t end with you as the star,” she says. “Understanding that the ego has to be subsumed is key to relationship success.” That and getting on her mother’s good side.
