There has been a bit of hype around whether or not vegans really are better in the sack than non-vegans. Is this true, or is this some strange propaganda that vegans are inventing because they ‘have an agenda’?
Well, to begin with, one thing is obvious about vegans: on average, they weigh 10 to 20lbs less than vegetarians, and vegetarians weigh 10 to 20 lbs less than omnivores. This, of course, helps with feeling attracted to someone, and also to feel more attractive and confident in bed. Although this is clearly only on the physical level, it is an important factor, whether we want to admit it or not. This has not been proven scientifically per se, but several vegans swear by it. It is very similar to those that start working out and feel more confident with the opposite sex immediately after exercising. It may just be psychological, but it works.
But this difference in physique is not all. A vegan’s body really does have an advantage that others don’t. Scientifically, there are several reasons why those that opt to avoid eating animal by-products perform better with their sexual partners. Although this may seem strange, but some say that their vegan partners actually taste better – sweeter – than non-vegans, and the smell is more attractive, too.
Also, research shows that there are a few types of food that create a chemical reaction in the body that helps increase the libido in both men and women. Nutrients such as zinc and vitamin B complexes help elevate testosterone levels, which increase desire. To avoid losing this needed hormone, make sure you get enough amino-acids.
Furthermore, polls show that vegans feel as though they have much more energy since they stopped consuming animal by-products and meat. This, of course, translates into the bedroom as well. When interviewed, 62% of the vegan respondents said that their sex lives improved since adopting this diet. Some go as far as to say that, since veganism is based on compassion for the animals, social justice and environmental protection, they understand love better and believe that there is now an added component to their relationships: sex becomes more spiritual and stops being strictly about the physical act.
Furthermore, eating meat, which is loaded with saturated fats, can eventually clog the vessels that carry blood to the male sexual organs the same way that the vessels and arteries leading to the heart or brain can become clogged. The result is lack of stimulation and perhaps even loss of erection. As a matter of fact, erectile dysfunction is an early sign of heart problems.
What can be done about this? Well, here are the details to keep your manhood from having stage fright during performance time:
Oatmeal and Other Whole Grains
Oats contain L-arginine, an amino acide that works with nitric oxide, which reduce the stiffness in blood vessels. This keeps them flexible so blood can flow more easily.
Spinach and Other Leafy Greens
The magnesium found in these vegetables help dilate the blood vessels. The folate helps reduce homocysteine in the blood, which irritates the lining of arteries and encourages plaque to stick to them.
Grapefruit, Oranges, and Peaches
Consuming at least 200mg of vitamin C increases sperm count and motility.
