The Casanova Studies; Is Wine the Best drink for Sex?

Increased sexual performance in women The compounds in wine may also increase sexual desire beyond the effects of alcohol itself. A 2009 study from the Journal of Sexual Medicine found that women who drank moderate amounts of red wine reported more sexual desire and better sexual functioning than other groups.

Importantly, these results were not as clear in women who drank other types of alcohol.

Red wine may be the most romantic drink money can buy.

Increased testosterone A separate study from the Nutrition Journal found that red wine may actually be a key for circulating testosterone. Testosterone is responsible for many functions in the body, one of them being an increase in sexual desire.

Compared to alcohol itself, red wine appears to significantly increased the amount of circulating testosterone in the blood. This could lead to a stronger sex drive.

Again, researchers noted the key was moderation. In fact, any more than two glasses of wine and you run the risk of actually losing testosterone and therefore sexual drive.

The bottom line…

Go for it! Now more than ever, we understand why we picture a glass of red wine alongside a romantic evening – red wine is the perfect drink for sexual encounters.

The huge asterisk here though is moderation. Most of these studies say that anything past 2 glasses and you probably won’t notice the effects. In fact, the opposite will occur.

So drink up! A glass or two of red wine with dinner may make for a perfect romantic evening – just don’t forget to put out the candles before bed.
