Approximately half of the US population is not sleeping enough. And chances are this is also the case for the rest of the world.
Poor or inadequate sleep has several negative health consequences, but one key potential effect is reduced sexual function. Meaning a decreased sex drive and onset of erectile dysfunction.
First off, your body needs adequate sleep in order to restore itself from a day of use and to prepare itself for another day. Your body uses sleep to clear out toxins and waste, repair broken functions and fine-tune internal systems and balances.
But also, it is during sleep that your body produces testosterone. So if you don’t get enough sleep, your body doesn’t have enough time to produce all the testosterone it should produce.
And with low levels of testosterone, you will normally find it very difficult to function sexually.
In order to sleep well, here are some suggestions: Block excess noise and light with earplugs and heavy curtains, stick to a consistent sleep schedule (even on weekends) and stop using computer, phone, and TV screens well before going to bed.
