Personally, I've found the opposite--my drive has increased as I've gotten older, and the same is true for my friends (in their 30's and 40's).
But... my friends and I also have a similar approach to honesty in a relationship, and tell our partners basically everything about
wants/likes/interests, and expect the same honesty in return. This can lead to some very exciting territory that's also quite spiritual, emotional,
and strengthens the relationship overall, imho.
Also, most of us plan date nights with our spouses, and that helps a lot. You can keep the "newlywed" thing going for years just by having good
communication, seriously. I've been married for almost 10 years and still get giddy when my hubby walks into the room.
As far as chemicals in the diet go... that's a tough one, frankly. Different chemicals affect people differently. Prescription medications or
existing conditions like diabetes or even sleep disorders are usually the first thing to examine and rule out, though. Not sure about anything
