Want Better Sex? Quit Smoking


Here are some insights if you want to have Better Sex – Quit Smoking. Surprised? Well you shouldn’t be – smoking and sex seems to go hand in hand and smoking affects similar part of the brain as food and sex (no wonder)

You know what I mean, what is nicer than to lay back and light up after…However, there’s the other end of the spectrum, if you want to have better sex – quit smoking. So what’s the relationship? For ages, health authorities have been running innumerable campaigns telling everyone out there the health benefits of quitting smoking and its associated danger but apparently, these messages are falling on deaf ears.

Although lots of research done on effects of smoking and sex related problems in men, there has been little research done on women’s sexual health. Even then, this can be presumed to affect women in some ways too. For men who smoke, here are the facts.

Smoking reduces the duration of an erection and causes erectile dysfunction (ED). Why is this so? Smoking causes fatty deposits to build up in arteries leading to decreased penile blood pressure and blood flow to the penis.

Since a man’s erection depends on blood flow, thus the link between erectile dysfunction and smoking. Young smokers may not notice negative effects right away and it differs from person to person. In some cases, erectile dysfunction happens within 4 to 5 years. How disappointing is that going to be to your partner?

If nicotine can restrict blood flow and in men, the same effect should apply to women as well and thus may result in a negative effect on sensation resulting in reduced arousal in women. Here are some other facts that are related to sex and smoking:

o Smokers stink (smokers won’t notice this until they quit), and which non-smoking person would love to kiss an ashtray?

o Smoking accelerates the development of lines on your face, making you look older than you are. Stained teeth, bad breath, the cigarette stench that hangs onto your clothes and hair can be a big turn off to a potential partner

o Smokers run out of breath easily, that goes without saying, your sexual stamina too.

o Many smokers have complained that sex has become too boring when their libidos have diminished. Do you really want to reach this point? Would you rather give up smoking or give up sex!?

The facts are here and the choice is yours.

If you want to have Better Sex – Quit Smoking!
