You are what you eat... and drink...

"A glass or two of a fine wine is okay to have because it helps lower inhibitions, but getting drunk, especially on a regular basis, won't make your sex life more enjoyable. "

Tell that to my ex husband. The first time he got his ass licked I was drunk out of my skull. :-o

On a more serious note; do you pay intentional attention to what you eat and drink because of how it affects your sex life?

I really don't pay attention to what I eat or drink. But I pay very close attention to what my husband drinks. Or should I say how much?

If he has more than a few drinks then we're talking major marathon sex. And he's not going to have an orgasm no matter how long the marathon goes on.

We all drink wine and we all do tend to watch each other's diets and reign each other in if we are getting too silly with either. Reading that article I'm doing bloody well. But I haz a sad over the advice to not have lots of garlic and onion ... bugger that I love those two things in loads of recipes.

Amen! Garlic and onions are NOT leaving our diets (they may alter our tastes, but they're good for you anyway!), so we'll have to make up for it with lots of pineapple juice I guess!

Guess it is a good thing that hubby can't taste 'cause the onions and garlic are staying in our diet..
We do have an average of two alcoholic drinks a day-per the cardiologist. He says two drinks of any kind keeps the blood flowing and helps reduce the risks for a heart attack. But our family MD won't write it down for fear of being lenched out of town!
I can tell a difference when we exercise regularly and eat "right" and I don't feel near as sluggish..

I can't believe I didn't find anything about soy. Soy has benefits but also major bummers- it helps the vaginal area remain lubricated and combats symptoms of menopause like hot flashes.... The prostate also reaps benefits from soy as well. But unfortunately, some people say soy delays ovulation as well as lower sperm count because it increases estrogen production. As I have PCOS, I've been trying to learn a lot about it but the information out there is all mixed.

Also, I wish the snippit about L-Arginine had been expanded as my husband has noticed huge changes in his erections by adding granola, oatmeal, and nuts to his diet. We also eat an abundance of omega 3 and chili peppers which helps our nervous systems resulting in better sex and enhanced arousal senses.

I'm a big foodie, I usually have to analyze everything I eat.

Can I get an amen?! AMEN! I put garlic in practically everything I make; it's so goddamn delicious.

However, I also don't eat much meat and drink arse tons of water, which tends to balance things. I've tasted myself out of curiosity and I'm a little salty with a bit of sweetness, nothing offensive.

I watch what I eat in the sense that I have recently become vegetarian (for many reasons in fact). I eat like a pig but I eat no more pig and other meats.

I don't really drink all that often I used to enjoy a home made cosmo from time to time but alas no more vodka left in my storage and I am poor. I feel like when I drink alcohol especially in bars I feel like I am drinking my money and it sort of pisses me off (unless someone else is paying for my drinks XD)

Very interesting article. Gingko Biloba is also thought to balance the sexual side effects of anti-depressants.

I would definitely agree with red meat affecting taste... I know that vegetarian/vegan partners I've had have tasted much different than their non-veg counterparts.

I have been a vegetarian for quite a while (aesthetic, not health, reasons) and my husband told me there was a change in my taste after I gave up eating meat.

Garlic and onions will definitely NOT be leaving my diet. I do drink tons of water and tea with fresh lemon sweetened with stevia, and recently gave up soft drinks so I think this keeps me balanced out a little. Since hot peppers get the circulation moving, I frequently try to add them to my food.

Also, since I am married and am only having sex with my husband, I'm really not as concerned about my taste or his as I would be if I were dating and wanting to make a good impression.
