How spicy food can impact your sex life

Love is in the air, and chillies are in the hot sauce… there’s no better way to celebrate the season of love than with a bit of spice. 

As we all know, hot sauce, chillies, and other spicy food can have a distinct effect our bodies. But how exactly does this impact us when we’re under the sheets? 

It’s a guy thing

Good news, fellas. Recently, the University of Grenoble conducted a research project that explore the impact of hot sauce on a group of men. What they found was that the men who ingested the higher levels of hot sauce also had higher levels of testosterone. For those of you who don’t know, high levels of testosterone are often linked to a higher sex drive. So, if you want to get into the mood quicker and for longer, maybe that chilli dip isn’t the worst thing to eat. 

High spice tolerance = high…

Another survey, ran by El Yucateco, found that those who have a preference for hotter spices also have twice as much sex as those who don’t. The survey also found that those who prefer hotter spice over those who don’t, also prefer rollercoasters, loud music, and driving fast; but that isn’t as fun as the sex result. If you want a hot sauce to test your tolerance then try our MAHI Carolina Reaper and Pineapple sauce – it’ll hit that spot in more than one way. 

Rinse and repeat 

A higher sex life and a larger libido in men, so far, spice fiends can rejoice. But what if we told you that spice can also make you last longer in the sack… well, keep reading. While we know that the sex life of men is improved by eating spicy foods, what about women? Well, spicy foods are known to dilate the blood vessels and increase blood flow in both genders, this helps with your body function to the best of its ability. That means that your body will be able to bounce back for round two, while also last longer in general. And really, who doesn’t want that? 

Blows your pants off 

Yes, spicy food has an amazing impact on the bodies of both men and women, however, and we want you to jot this one down, do not start fooling around if you haven’t cleaned yourself up after cooking with chillies, peppers, or hot sauce. Spicy foods tend to be a desiccant which typically induces a state of dryness, especially, in environments that have the potential to get wet. If this dryness occurs, it can result in chemical vulvovaginitis, which is the inflammation of the vagina. If you need to read of an instance of how painful this can be, then Bustle reported the risks that come with involving spice in the bedroom. So, use what you need to get in the mood, but proceed with caution and ensure that all parties wash themselves thoroughly before and after.
