Forget Viagra – beer is the new drug that can help performance in the bedroom.
Yes, that paunch you’re developing could actually be making you a sex god… and here’s why.
- It makes you last longer
Five pints and he won’t be a five minute man
According to sex expert, Dr. Kat Van Kirk, the phytoestrogens in alcohol delay ejaculation so so if you’ve been known to shoot too early, just have a pint instead of desperately thinking non-sexy thoughts about maths equations or your elderly neighbours. (On the flipside, don’t drink so much you can’t get things started at all.)
- Dark beer is an aphrodisiac
The iron in darker beer helps your red blood cells create haemoglobin, which carries oxygen around the body. Essentially it improves your circulation meaning you have a stronger erection. Unfortunately this does not work for pale ale or wine but we’re sure you can find something out there to your liking.
- Beer gives you more endurance
Turns out downing pints is great training. Researchers at Italy’s Fondazione di Ricerca e Cura said a pint a day makes you 31 per cent less likely than tee-totallers to suffer from heart attacks, strokes or heart disease meaning you’ll be fitter and healthier to keep things going.
- It can calm your stomach
Again according to Dr Kirk, Guinness has a lot of vitamins and minerals that have probiotic qualities which can improve your health generally and settle you so you don’t feel queasy from all that beer you’ve been drinking.
These tips come from AskMen and they seem totally legitimate, but of course only in moderation.
