In Other Words, Don't Blame the Gym If You're Not In the Mood!

Not interested in a little nighttime nooky? Don't blame it on pilates class. In a new interview with BlissTree, sex therapist and couples counselor Dr. Roger Libby says a healthy amount of exercise will actually improve your sex life, not drain you of energy to, you know, do it.

"Exercise liberates endorphins, which increases energy and libido," Libby explains. "So if someone says they're too tired to have sex, it's either an excuse or they're overdoing it."

Where did the myth that too much time spent working out exhausts a person's ability to hold their own in the bedroom? From patients who just weren't that into their partners, Libby believes.

"Most often, when a patient says, ‘I'm tired,' it's like the old ‘I've got a headache' thing," says Libby. "It's an excuse."

"If [cutting back on exercise] doesn't help, it may be based on the relationship or it may be mental," he continues. "They may be using it as a coping mechanism or trying to escape the relationship."

In other words, if you're not 100 percent happy with your mate, the solution isn't going to be found on the treadmill. It's going to be found by having a healthy, honest heart-to-heart with your partner.

And, really, isn't that easier than logging endless hours at the gym?
