We all go through phases of not wanting sex from time to time. But for many, this lack of libido can put a real strain on their relationships, causing some people to go to extreme lengths to boost their sex drive.
But what if we told you that the key to a better sex life wasn't a superfood or pill promising mind-blowing orgasms? In fact it's much more simple than that.
According to a new study, simply having an hour extra of sleep can boost a woman's sex drive by 14%.
That might not sound like much to those with a heightened sex drive, but for those needing an extra boost to get them going it can make a lot of difference.
Considering it is currently National Bed Month, there is no time like the present to catch up on your precious sleep. We're all losing an hour of sleep this weekend due to the clocks going forward, but it's important for your sex life that you catch up. A scientist said so!
So put down you smartphones, turn off your TV and get all tucked in - it's probably the sexiest thing you could do.
Nothing beats sexy lingerie when it comes to bedroom seduction, but after the first wear it's easy to throw everything in one drawer and forget about it, only to be met with a bundle of tangled stockings and bras next time you want to dress up.
If you've taken the time to hand wash and dry your sexy underwear, it's a good idea to spend an extra couple of minutes putting it away properly, too.
In fact, you can extend the life of your lingerie with a few tweaks to how you store your pieces.
Our lingerie expert Gemma has outlined some easy ways to sort and store your lingerie below so you can keep your favourite pieces ready for action at a moment's notice!

Premature ejaculation, or 'PE' isn't just a young man's problem. Statistics show that it affects at least 30% of the male population, young and old. It can be caused by a variety of things, from the size of your penis or your genes, to stress and confidence.
It's not the 'be all or end all though', and there are some techniques and tools designed to provide both long and short-term relief to the problem. And they're not just for those with PE!
In the fifth and final video in this series, Tracey explains the difference between chronic PE and acquired or situational PE – and how penis rings, delay sprays, strokers and condoms can all help delay ejaculation.
This week, Tracey will be talking a little more about her new Adjustable Stamina Ring and Triple Stamina Ring Set. Each video in the series works in conjunction with Tracey's new EDGE range – a product range for men designed to help improve performance in bed.
