Acording to a study reported in Journal of Sexual Medicine, Italian researchers at the University of Florence found that red wine can spice up your sex life. The researchers separated women into three groups based on their drinking preferences: red wine drinkers, those who favor alternative alcoholic drinks and abstainers. They found that women who drank two glasses of red wine each day, as opposed to those in the other groups, wanted sex more often and experienced enhanced natural lubrication during sexual activity than women who drank less often. It is thought that the polyphenols, a type of antioxidant, in wine may help improve blood flow to key arousal areas, according to scientists. One or maximum two glasses of wine should kick start the libido.
As for men, a glass of red wine may fuel the libido, but a drinking a full bottle may screw with your penis and reduce the chance of getting an erection. Clinical studies have revealed that alcoholic drinks act on the brain to dull anxiety and reduce inhibitions about sex, although larger amounts of alcohol can have the reverse effect. In one study, men with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.06 and 0.09 had difficulty ejaculating while masturbating. A different study measured penis swelling in reaction to erotic stimulation; it found that the men who had three or more mixed drinks within a two hour period couldn't get an erection.
Limit yourself to 2 drinks maximum and take a daily natural male enhancement pill to help promote enhanced sexual function. Look for one formulated with Yohimbe known to dilate the blood vessels and promote an erection. Yohimbe extracts are powerful antioxidants that have been studied and shown in some cases to help prevent heart attacks, act as a stimulant and an anti-depressant, and to aid weight loss.
