When the vata humor is aggravated, it will make you more emotionally vulnerable and fear-prone; when pitta is aggravated, it will move you to anger and even frustration; and when kapha is increased,  it will make you more possessive.

7) The frequency of sex depends on the constitution of he body and seasons of nature. Generally kapha type people, who possess  more stamina than others, indulge in sex more frequently than the vata and pitta type people.

Talk to your doctor. Talking about sexual issues with your doctor can help you maintain a healthy sex life as you get older. Your doctor can help you manage chronic conditions and medications that affect your sex life.

Expand your definition of sex. Intercourse is only one way to have fulfilling sex. Touching, kissing and other intimate sexual contact may be just as rewarding for both you and your partner.
Change your routine. Simple changes can improve your sex life. Change the time of day when you have sex to a time when you have the most energy. Try the morning — when you’re refreshed from a good night’s sleep — rather than at the end of a long day. Try a new sexual position or explore other new ways of connecting romantically and sexually.

Stay healthy. Eating regular nutritious meals, staying active, not drinking too much alcohol, and not smoking or using illegal drugs are important for your overall health — and it can help your sexual performance. Follow your doctor’s instructions in taking medications and managing any chronic health conditions.
