Causes for Low Libido in Males (According to AYURVEDA)
Ayurveda acharyas explain various causes for low libido in men.
Having sex by compulsions with a person whom you do not like.
When men are disinterested with their partner, they may experience a low desire. In a relationship woman is considered as “parama vajikara”. That means woman herself is an aphrodisiac to her man. If she does not arouse any sexual feeling in man then he may experience low libido.
Anxiety and stress cause low libido.

Apart from these relationship issues, lack of interest in the partner, poor body image etc., can also be some of the factors behind reduced libido in men.
Imbalance of Shukra Dhatu
Shukra Dhatu helps in enjoying good sexual life. Consumption of spicy, stale, opposite foods can imbalance shukra dhatu. This causes low libido and erectile dysfunction. Imbalanced shukra dhatu can also affect quality and quantity of semen. Eating spicy (katu rasa) , salty (lavana rasa) and hot food increase pitta dosha and destroys SHUKRA (SEMEN) this leading to low libido.Overindulgence in sexual activities like masturbation or more frequent ejaculations, leads to SHUKRA KSHAYA (decrease in quantity of semen).
Controlling Sexual Urges:
Controlling sexual urge for very long durations can cause a condition called “Veeryavarodha” (Obstruction of semen) which in turn leads to low libido, erectile dysfunction and low semen quality and quantity. They have explained this in dinacharya (ayurvedic daily routine ) . (you can know more about Effects of Suppression of Natural Urges of Human Body )
