On this article, I will now be discussing seven reasons why becoming a vegan can be the key to healthy and vigorous sex life. Therefore, veganism is the best choice if you want to improve your sex life!
List Of 7 Reasons Why Vegans Are Better at Sex:
#1 Erectile Dysfunction
”Once assumed to be a problem primarily rooted in the psyche, ED is now understood to frequently have a psychological basis.” – Wesley Ludwig, Center for Sexual Health, Washington University, USA.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is the recurrent or persistent inability to maintain and/or attain an erection for a satisfactory sexual performance. ED is present in up to 30 million men in the United States and roughly 100 million men worldwide.
ED is a condition commonly affecting men with an underlying vascular disease. There is considerable evidence to indicate that erectile dysfunction can be an early indicator of cardiovascular disease and is a comorbid condition for coronary heart disease.
Atherosclerosis is the primary cause of erectile dysfunction in about half of all ED cases among men over 50 years of age. This has led to the postulation that narrowed blood vessels in the penis may be more prone to blockage and atherosclerosis than the coronary vessels.
Hardening of the arteries can lead to softening of the penis because stiffened arteries can’t relax, open wide, and let the blood flow.
High cholesterol (HDL) and triglyceride levels could alter the endothelial function and disrupt the normal vasodilation of the penile vasculature, thus increasing the probability of erectile dysfunction. High levels of LDL have also been shown to increase the likelihood of ED. (1)
Additionally, 40% of men over age 40 have ED, and one in four patients seeking first medical help for new-onset erectile dysfunction was younger than 40 years. (2)
The reason even young men should care about their HDL is that it predicts erectile dysfunction later in life, which in turn predicts strokes, heart attacks, and a shortened lifespan.
#2 Increased Circulation
Orgasms benefit women psychologically and physically in many ways, from easing menstrual cramps to alleviating stress. It’s also thought to reduce pain, act as a stress buster, and ease depression, while one research even suggested the greater the frequency of orgasms, the longer you’ll live.
And many men do care deeply whether their partners reach a climax. A sexual relationship that doesn’t satisfy both of you won’t fulfill him emotionally, no matter how much physical enjoyment he gets from the act itself.
Yet only a 3rd of women say they frequently experience one, and one in ten reports never having one at all.
Like the penis, the clitoris seems to need adequate blood flow. So, it makes sense that having good circulation is essential to having a strong orgasm.
”I suspect there may turn out to be a link in women, too, but we don’t have any concrete evidence of this yet.”- Dr. Graham Jackson, St Thomas Hospital, London.
#3 More Stamina and Energy (In Bed)
If you want to last longer in between the sheets, you need to increase your energy naturally. A vegan diet that is high in carbs can provide more sustainable energy that will not lead to the “sugar crash” usually seen in processed sugar.
For example, a banana is high in potassium, which is a nutrient that helps in sex-hormone production and boosts energy. Also, sweet potatoes are hypoallergenic and the preferred source of post-workout carbohydrates for many bodybuilders and athletes who want to keep their energy stores up and body fat down.
#4 Semen Tastes Better
Sexual fluids like semen and vaginal lubricants vary in smell and flavor depending on what you eat, and vegans have frequently noted that their sexual fluids seem to be a lot less offensive than those of omnivores.
When it comes to semen, the two important factors that are going to alter taste are the level of sweetness and the level of bitterness. The sweetness is provided by fructose, which is present as a fuel supply for the sperm.
There are 2-5mg of fructose per ml of seminal fluid. The more healthy and fertile a person is, the greater the fructose content. In fact, you actually become infertile when you have no fructose in your semen.
The main source of bitterness in sperm is uric acid content. Uric acid is a breakdown product of purines. Most animal foods are higher in purines than most plant foods, so it’s clear that those who don’t consume animal products will have less of it in their bodies, and so probably have less of it in their semen.
A word of warning to vegan men though: veggies in the cabbage family are high in sulfur and this can make semen taste bad.
In addition, eating a meat-laden diet greatly increases the amount of synthetic hormones that your body takes in. These hormones may contribute to a reduced sperm count and an increased risk of testicular tumors.
Moreover, a 2014 study by the Harvard School of Public Health reveals that cheese intake results in poor-quality sperm. (3)
#5 Increased Libido
Libido is a Freudian term describing the force or psychic energy behind human action; particularly the sexual urge or as some might put it passion, erotic desire or sexual appetite.
Libido naturally lags when the body isn’t getting all the nutrition it needs and it must focus on self-preservation over reproduction. Deficiencies in minerals and vitamins can create depression, fatigue, and low energy levels that get in the way of love and passion.
#6 Better Smelling
Red meat causes toxins to be released into the large intestines and bloodstream, which then make it out through our pores. Also, the bacteria on our skin love to consume fats and proteins, compounds that are plentiful in meat. So, the bacteria thrive on meat-eaters and their waste produces a vile smell.
In 2006, researchers at Charles University in the Czech Republic decided to see how diet affected one’s body odor. The scientists had men eat meat diet or a vegan diet for 2 weeks and then took odor samples from their armpits. Then they had the men switch their diets and took samples again. The odor samples were given to women who rated them on a level of pleasantness.
The women constantly found that vegan men’s smell was “more attractive”. Furthermore, they repeated the same procedure a month later with the same odor donors, each on the opposite diet than before.
Results of repeated-measures analysis of variance showed that the odor of donors when on the nonmeat diet was judged as significantly more pleasant, more attractive, and less intense. (4)
#7 Increased Natural Lubrication
The high water volume in vegetables and fruits keeps the body well hydrated, increasing lubrication during sex.
Foods that are rich in omega 3 fatty acids, such as raw pumpkin or sunflower seeds, can help nourish and invigorate a woman who suffers from vaginal dryness.
Also, watermelon, cucumbers, and cantaloupe can also help hydrate the skin, reducing fine lines and giving a radiant glow.
