SIX THINGS THAT SUPER SIZE YOUR SEX DRIVE
** 1. WORKING OUT. It's got nothing to do with getting thinner -- the actual act of exercise primes your body for sex. Research from the University of Texas at Austin found that women with low sexual arousal who did 20 minutes of fairly intense cardiovascular exercise (the equivalent of a fast jog or a Spinning class) before watching an erotic video became more aroused that when they watched the film without working out. Try taking a brisk walk before a big night -- why not?

** 2. FANTASIZING. Men go there all the time, but "many women are still surprisingly squeamish about using fantasy. That's unfortunate, because it's a powerful libido boosting tool," says Dennis Surgue, Ph.D., associate professor of psychiatry, University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, and coauthor of Sex Matters for Women. Experts emphasize that fantasy is just that pretend -- a harmless way of exploring things you find arousing. If your inner censor objects, remember: These images are for your mind only, so they can be as tame or racy (bondage sex is public!) as you want.

** 3. EATING RIGHT. "Good blood flow and circulation are critical for sexual responsiveness, which is another reason to keep your cholesterol and blood pressure down by eating a diet rich in whole grains, fruits, vegetables and lean protein." says Suzanne Trupin, M.D. clinical professor of obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Illinois College of Medicine at Urbana, Champaign. "That's one reason why the obesity epidemic is fueling more and more health related sexual problems". What's more, most fatty foods make you sluggish and tired - a definite turnoff.

** 4. GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP. When Carol Rinkleib Ellison, Ph.D., a clinical psychologist and author of Women's Sexualities, surveyed more than 2,600 women, she found that one of the most common causes of lack of desire and frequency was fatigue. Aside from helping you feel more rested, sleep gives you the presence of mind to deal with mood-killing stress.

** 5. THINKING LIKE A GUY (for women) "For many busy women, sex is one more item on the to-do list, which makes it seems like a chore - an avoidable one at that", says Sugrue. "Besides, from the time they're young, boys are taught to see sex as scoring or getting lucky, while girls are taught to approach sex cautiously or withhold it altogether". Instead, to view sex as antidote to your frenzied life, a time to relax and enjoy.

** 6. DRINKING COFFEE. Really! Caffeine increase dopamine, a brain neurotransmitter that plays a role in feeling pleasure, including sexual pleasure, says Ellen Albertson, a nutritionist in Boston who has studied aphrodisiacs. "That may be why research shows that coffee drinkers are more sexually active that non-coffee drinkers."
