If you or your man is suffering from a low testosterone or libido levels, a new study about the use of bright lights could help.

With approximately 25% of men experiencing low sexual desire at some point in their lives, this could be a simple, yet major breakthrough. The Doctors note they like that the treatment is simply light and not a pill.

Another possible way to get some extra light is to enjoy a walk early in the morning in the bright rising sun, which could act as a substitute for the light treatment.
