Red Wine Enhances Women’s Sexual Desire
Woman With Red Wine
According to a new research on the libido of women, it has been proved that red wine has the power of enhancing the sexual desire of women more than what is done by sex toys and tantric art. According to the researchers, the sexual boost happens due to the increase in blood flow in women after they have red wine.
The Italian doctors, who had conducted the study, claim that chemical compounds present in red wine can boost sexual functioning by enhancing the blood flow to vital body parts.
For arriving at a conclusion, the doctors of the University of Florence selected 800 women aged 18 to 50. None of these women had a sexual health problem.
The volunteers were split into three groups – those who regularly consumed one or two glasses of red wine a day, those who consumed less than one glass a day of any sort of wine or other alcohol, and those who were teetotal.
For avoiding the possible confusing effects of drunkenness, females who drank more than two glasses a day were excluded from the study.
The participants were asked to complete a questionnaire, the Female Sexual Function Index. It included 19 questions with a total score range between two and 36, with higher scores meaning better functioning.
Overall the red wine drinkers scored an average of 27.3 points, compared to 25.9 for the less-frequent tipplers and 24.4 for the non-drinkers.
From the analysis, it was found that levels of sexual desire were higher in women who were moderate drinkers of red wine than in their counterparts who preferred other alcoholic drinks, or were teetotal.
The researchers said: "While this finding needs to be interpreted with some caution, it nevertheless suggests a potential relationship between red wine consumption and better sexuality."
The study has been published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
