Sex and Food: Some Helpful Tips
One thing which most couples have in common is that they want to have an active, exciting sex life. After all, sex is an important part of any successful relationship. But sometimes life can get in the way, and we can let our sex lives suffer as a result. Whether it’s working more than normal, illness, or feelings of stress, it can be easy to fall prey to the complications of modern life and not partake in sex as much as we’d like to.
Besides these factors, other issues can get in the way of sex too. One is ED, which is a condition sometimes caused by irregular blood flow. This sort of ED can be treated with prescription medication such as sildenafil.
Another issue is diet. What you eat and how you eat it can greatly affect your performance between the sheets, and have an impact on your libido. So, we’ve drawn up some dietary advice for those looking to maintain a healthy sex life:
Eat at Sensible Times
Late night snacks and dinners might seem romantic and fun at the time, but there are few things less sexy than trying to do it on a full stomach. So, give your food time to digest and settle before getting down to business.
Or at least limit them. It’s common knowledge that saturated fats can make you feel lethargic and tired. If you want to be spritely when the time comes, it’s best to stick to good fats, such as those found in fruit and veg such as avocado, or those found in fish. Deep-fried food and takeaways are not your friend.
We’re all partial to a feast every now and then, but again, you want to be able to remain agile for later – you or your partner might want to try something new, such as a different position, and doing so with a body full of heavy food isn’t going to do you any favours.
If you’re doing some home cooking, see if you can make your sex lives a little spicier by rustling up some aphrodisiacs every now and then. Rich but light foods, such as dark chocolate desserts, are great for getting you in the mood. If you know how to do a good lobster, or even oysters if you’re feeling adventurous, give it a go. Your partner will likely appreciate the extra effort – which can only be a good thing
