What are the hormones that make the sexual sensation fades after the orgasm? can these be used to treat a person with frequent sexual arousal (or that thinks too much about sex,without being obsessed)
May 23, 2014

Dr. Rania Mousa General Medicine
Sexual motivation is influenced by hormones such as testosterone, estrogen, progesterone, oxytocin, and vasopressin. In most mammalian species, sex hormones control the ability to engage in sexual behaviours. However, sex hormones do not directly regulate the ability to copulate in humans. Rather, sex hormones are only one influence on the motivation to engage in sexual behaviours.
There are several ways to banish thoughts about sex:
-Method No 1: Go on a diet
It is thought that a severe diet can lower the production of sex hormones. The fewer the calories, the weaker the sexual drive. People are said to think less about sex after reducing calorie content of their food by 40%.
Do not forget that your diet should be free from the so-called aphrodisiacs i.e. spices (pepper, cinnamon, ginger, basil etc.), nuts, mushrooms, eggs, sea food, meat, fish, olives, honey and chocolate. More importantly, refrain from drinking alcoholic beverages.
-Method No 2 :
Strenuous physical exercise can be a good help in a battle between the spirit and the flesh.
-Method No 3 :
If the doctor sees that this is a bothersome for you or uncontrolled drugs can also help keep libido down: antidepressants, tranquilizers, beta blockers, diuretics, sedatives, and some drugs for treating cardiovascular diseases.
However, the above are normally prescribed for treating conditions that are not by any means related to sexual arousal. It is dangerous to take them without seeing your doctor first.
-Method No 4:
Method No 5: Practice extreme sports and activities
Going in for some energetic athletic activity usually leads to an increase in the production of adrenaline, an important hormone that has widespread effects on circulation, the muscles, and sugar metabolism. However, a higher level of adrenalin can never trigger erection. You can practice martial arts (Thai boxing, karate etc.) or a variety of extreme sports e.g. diving, skydiving, mountaineering and the like. You may as well join the army or a soccer fan club.
-Method No 5: Say a prayer
The following is a piece of advice posted on a web site run by one of the Russian Orthodox groups: “You can resort to a great remedy when you start growing weaker and find yourself at the end of your tether. A prayer can be your last hope because the Lord is strong enough to save even those whose are on the verge of an abysm. Don’t hesitate and start praying, especially when lascivious thoughts come rushing in. A short yet persistently repeated prayer ‘Have mercy on me!’ can be particularly useful under the circumstances.”
Method No 6: Find a distraction to keep yourself from thinking about sex
It is hard to believe that workaholics can be great lovers, whatever some scientists may say to the contrary. Can you picture a guy working 12-14 hours a day with sex on his mind? Well, if you can, you must be talking pure fiction.
There are other things that can distract you from sexual activities. You can read books, do crossword puzzles or play computer games. The latter are especially good because they are very time-consuming
