Foods you shouldn't eat before having sex
Food can have an interesting effect on our sexual performance. Aphrodisiacs are foods that have been known to help increase sexual desire and make sex a lot more enjoyable. But then there are also foods that do just the opposite – make sex less pleasurable.
Some of these foods are best to be avoided altogether, while others can do minimal damage if taken in small quantities. We bring to you a list of foods that would be better off left out of the menu of that romantic dinner, according to The Men's Journal.
Processed foods contain high levels of salt, sugar, and carbohydrates, which take time to be properly digested. Having processed foods can slow down your blood flow and make you feel lethargic.
Too much alcohol can make it nearly impossible for men to have an erection and for women to experience orgasms. But if you still need a drink before jumping in bed with your partner, you can sip in some red wine as it known to improve blood flow.
Garlic not only gives you stinky breath but can also make you suffer from body odour. In fact, its smell can come out of skin pores even for days on end. In women, garlic can also cause a change in odour down there.
Desserts that have a high-sugar content can cause an insulin rise and crash. This can lead to a drop in hormonal levels. A study conducted in 2013 revealed that consuming large amounts of glucose significantly dropped the testosterone levels of 73 out of 74 men for two hours. For those who don’t know – a drop in testosterone levels means a low sex drive.
