    Herbs to decrease male libido?

    Is there anything I can take to temporarily suppress my libido? I don't have a g/f and the urge to have sex is sometimes uncontrollable. Of course I release it the obvious way but even that takes up too much of my time and it doesn't help that much. I have actually noticed some success with tofu but I don't want to risk it having a permanent effect.

    Yes its unfortunate that there is no on-off button, and it belongs to the automatic nervous system along with all the hormones, any normal healthy guy will explode at a certain time if no sex takes place. This can be troublesome if you are religious and want to remain pure instead of jerking off all the time to temporarily subdue the feelings of lust. The trouble is that besides casteration, there are a few anti androgens (with side effects) that can reduce your libido , so be aware there's a flip side of the coin if you are going to use these methods.

    link removed Anti-Androgen Cyproterone acetate

    Or you could take 300 grams black liquorice a day will make testosteron levels drop dramatically, drawback is that since testosteron is basically a type of steroid you might feel weaker in the muscles. And liquorice can make you fat =\

    Be sure to be fully aware of all the side effects of any anti androgen you are willing to take, as said a million times there are side effects that may not be worth it.

    I've heard that antidepressants can lower your sex drive.
    But I'm not advocating that you use them for that sole purpose. (Contradictory post, huh?)

    Licorice. It's a great source of estrogen. Don't take too much or you'll start buying a lot of shoes.

    Seriously though, high doses of licorice for a long period of time (every day for more than a couple months) can be dangerous to your liver. But taken properly, I think it will accomplish what you're looking for.

    Also, dipping your balls in ice water and thinking of your grandma in underpants might help.

    A good swift kick in the nuts usually does the trick. I can help out if you need it...

    Something tells me that's not going to solve the problem permanently unless you're wearing steel-toed boots. Not to mention that would hurt like hell. I am experiencing a similar problem in the high libido department. Only problem is, is that I do have a girlfriend and we are sexually active, only from time to time. I generally walk around with thoughts of her in my mind of a nature that would cause her parents to try and take my life. Another problem includes that I am incredibly easy to get going if I can turn it down a few notches. My girlfriend is very wise in turning me on and without realizing what she's doing, she pushes a button, maybe even two. Working myself doesn't help, and I cannot find a way to turn myself off. Any suggestions?

    PS
    It doesn't help that I'm 18 does it?

    I will tell you one thing for sure, avoid pornography in all of its forms. In fact avoid any thoughts about sex. I am a man also, so I understand how difficult this can be, but one thing is for certain, looking or thinking about sex related images just adds fuel to the fire.

    I don't care what everyone else says, I don't think male sex drive is something that can really be "satisfied." (except for maybe ten minutes at a time) It works more like supply and demand. The more you demand of your sex drive, the more it supplies.

    This is a generally despised viewpoint, but I can tell you from personal experience, the drive does decrease when you have no sexually stimulating images around. The problem is the images are everywhere so it takes special effort to avoid them.

    Mate you have no idea how hard I've tried this. It just doesn't work. If your libido is naturally high, then it's not easy to avoid thoughts of doing naughty deeds. Actually, I recently discovered I have high testosterone levels, which also explains my extreme anger and short temper as of late. So really, it is natural, I just wanna find some way of coping, that doesn't involve copulating with other women and making my lover feel as though that's all I want.

    Testosterone

    I am not trying to minimize the difficulty in what I am saying. Most people will call me nuts, but I will say this: Sex is self-reinforcing. The more sexually active you are, the more your testosterone increases, the more your testosterone increases the more sexually active you want to be.

    They showed a case of adolescent male elephants that went "berserk" after they removed all adult male elephants. The young males started "killing for fun" as it were. They would find dead animals all over the place that the young males had killed. They were perplexed at first, but found that when they re-inserted the adult males, this uncontrolled violent behavior stopped. What was the key? When adult males are present, the young males aren't allowed to mate (big daddy won't let them). When the young males do mate prematurely, their testosterone levels increase, and they become violent as a result.

    I am not saying you are "prematurely sexually active." I am also not saying that having sex often is necessarily bad. I am simply making the point that sexual activity does raise your testosterone levels, and that raised testosterone levels are correlated with sex and violence.

    Yes, for a young male, wanting sex is totally "natural." The issue here is when that desire rules or disrupts your goals and life. It is true; there is much about ourselves that we can not choose. We can't turn off our sex drive the same way we do a light switch. We can't say, "I don't want to want to have sex," and then magically we lose the desire according to our wish. In short, we can't choose our desire or emotions directly. However, we CAN indirectly affect our desire through our actions. We CAN choose to avoid situation or stimuli that stir emotions or desires that we want to control or abandon. We CAN choose not to engage in sex when it is in opposition to our goals and life. The great thing about is that the testosterone correlation works in the opposite too. It takes great effort to decrease activity at first, but lowered activity leads to lower hormone, and lower hormone leads to lower desire. Ask any recovering sexaholic, and they well tell you that it always takes effort to stay out of the addiction, but the initial escape is what is most difficult.

    I wish there was a pill we could swallow, and it would all go away. But as shown in all the previous postings, the only drugs our herbs that lower libido, only do so with negative side effects, which might be worse than the original ailment. I don't believe, there is a simple and easy solution to this issue, or I would have used it myself.
