If you’re read the article about training your “love muscles,” then it would also interest you to know that what you eat and drink can be just as important as your exercise program. You need optimal performance from all of your body parts, not just your main love muscle.
Take it Easy with Alcohol.
While bars and clubs are great places to meet the people you may end up sleeping with, too much alcohol can render you useless. If your goal at the end of the night is to get in bed, then try not to black out by drinking too much alcohol. Sure, the other person may look a lot better, but what’s the point if you pass out before you climb the stairs to the bedroom.
The general rule of thumb is to avoid getting a DUI. If you drink enough to get you pulled over the police, then you have probably inhaled enough alcohol to screw up your sexual performance.
Alcohol in moderation has its benefits. For example, a few glasses of wine or champagne with your significant other is a great way to lower the tension and inhibition. And when you’re slightly buzzed, you feel a little more comfortable trying out new things, like talking dirty, different positions, and new places!
Coffee Drinker? No harm, no foul!
Caffeine can deliver a performance boost to your body. There have been numerous studies to try and link caffeine to birth defects or risks of cancer, but no links have been found. So if you’re a coffee drinker, you don’t have to change this habit. Just don’t overdo it. You don’t want to be a jittery, hyper bouncy ball when your significant other is trying to take it slow.
Avoid Heavy Meals.
If your ultimate goal is to end up in bed after a dinner date, take it easy on the huge meals. Eating a lot of food at once will make you sleepy, and that fatigue is never good for sex. Not to mention you can get gassy, which is not attractive for anybody in the room. A lot of food in your stomach can also cause pain, which could make trying risky positions a journey within itself.
Quit Smoking before you put your penis at risk!
Smoking is considered a major factor in causing erectile dysfunction. Cigarette smoking accelerates the formation of blockages in the heart’s arteries, and it can do the same to the vessels that power your penis. Signs of harm can show as early as the age of 40. Sure, everyone knows the risks of smoking, but isn’t it all the more reason to quit when your little buddy can be in jeopardy?
Good Health, Good Life, Good Sex
If you haven’t noticed, all of these tips are the foundation for living a healthy lifestyle. In order to have optimal sex, you have to be as physically fit as you can be. Smoking, excessive drinking, and overeating are the biggest killers of Americans today, and while they may not kill you, they will significantly decrease your performance not only in bed, but in life.
