Cold Showers for Sex Drive?
10-05-2012 8:31 PM

Reading a wonderful book "4-Hour Body" by xxx right now, recommended by Thundr (shout-out!) - ran across this very intriguing notion :

Quote:SHORT ICE BATHS AND/OR COLD SHOWERS"” 10 MINUTES UPON WAKING AND BEFORE BED

Using ice baths and cold showers to affect sex hormones is largely untested in the literature, but there appear to be plausible mechanisms.
The preoptic area of the anterior hypothalamus is responsible for regulating thermogenesis"”the generation of heat in response to cold exposure. The very same preoptic area also contains the generation of heat in response to cold exposure. The very same preoptic area also contains most GnRH-releasing neurons, making it a primary site of GnRH production. Pulses of GnRH, you might recall, then trigger either FSH (low-frequency pulses) or LH release (high-frequency
pulses).
Looking at blood test changes after removing and then reincorporating both baths and showers as an isolated variable, I believe intermittent cold exposure has a positive impact on high-frequency pulses of GnRH, resulting in higher levels of LH and estosterone.

And this wonderful diagram below which dovetails with JV Kohl's remarkable research, and suggests one of the activating mechanisms for inducing horniness in the opposite sex :

14. Though other hormones like FSH also correlate to the increased sex drive, LH shows the most pronounced jump.

As Kohl's GnRH pulsatile modulation theory suggests, the pheromones (specifically the ones formulated in his Scent of Eros product) are increasing the LH levels, increasing socio-sexual receptivity.

Cold showers? That would be quite a challenge. well i suppose it works well with muscle recovery doing icebath. Although i think there are times where i wanna keep my sex drive dormant.

NuTrix- I wouldn’t change a thing in my past because it’s made me who I am, and I LIKE me, but I’ll be damned if I let 1 single thing in my past hold me prisoner there

I was under the impression that cold showers lowered our sex urges??

So is this saying it increases them?

I would test this once I find a partner that can keep up or surpass my current sex drive P

I gotta say that I personally will probably NEVER try this - I'm a Florida boy, and I HATE cold - it literally makes me angry when I'm cold, and winter is just a yearly plague to me that I have to suffer gracefully through.

I shared this (thanks again Thundr) figuring some folks will be able to benefit from it, but defs not for me!
