It’s a long established fact that people get horny when they drink. It’s just science. The smart parts of your brain slow to a glacial pace, while the parts that deal with sex stay woke as ever, hence why whiskey makes you frisky, and tequila makes you black out and hook up with anyone with a pulse.
But guess what? Not all booze treats your sex life the same. Apparently, if you want to have amazing sex and get a nice little buzz going on, you should reach for a bottle of red wine, because recent research found that people who drink moderate amounts of red wine have higher sex drives than those who prefer a cocktail, or something.
The research found that men who drank two glasses of red wine per day had higher testosterone levels than dudes who didn’t drink red wine, which explains their heightened libido, considering testosterone is the “manly” hormone.
Apparently, the quercetin in the wine blocks the UGT2B17 enzyme, which flushes testosterone out of the body. And obviously, when you have a little extra testosterone in your system, you get horny!
And guess what else? Red wine makes the ladies horny too, because it heightens blood flow to her erogenous zones, thereby increasing sensitivity and arousal, which is never a bad thing.
Plus, the same study also found that women who drank red wine were waaay hornier than those who opted for something else, and other studies have shown that women get turned on by aromas such as cherry-like, musky, earthy, and woody, which are all found in red wine.
So yeah, forget the whiskey or the rum or whatever — serving red wine for date night is definitely the right thing to do.
