Go Vegan For Your Sex Drive: 6 Reasons Veganism Holds The Key For A Healthy Sex Life

Ever wonder about going vegan? Veganism can boost your sexual stamina from increasing your natural lubrication to giving you more energy in between the sheets.

Since the announcement of Beyoncé and Jay-Z’s 22-day vegan cleanse, also known as the couple’s “spiritual and physical cleanse,” the plant-based diet has become increasingly popular in the last few months due to its wide range of health benefits. The animal-free vegan diet has become a more natural, healthy diet for some people who either have food intolerances to dairy or who firmly believe in environmental issues and animal rights. While living on a diet that consists of mainly fruits, grains, vegetables, leafy greens, legumes, nuts, and seeds may not sound fun, going vegan can boost your sex drive and keep your body nourished during hours and hours of sex.

1. Smooth & Silky Skin

Feeling comfortable in the skin you’re in is necessary to boost your sex drive in between the sheets. If you’re self-conscious about your skin, you are less likely to be confident during sex. A vegan diet can help you achieve smooth, silky, and glowing skin because it contains a higher content of vitamin C — essential for collagen metabolism increasing the elasticity of your skin — found in fruits and vegetables. It’s best to opt for fruits and veggies high in antioxidants to help counteract the effects of free radicals and anti-inflammatory agents.

A diet characterized by high calories, high glycemic, high fat, and meat foods can contribute to acne breakouts, according to a 2012 study published in the journal Dermato-Endocrinology. Leucine — an amino acid found in meat — can increase skin inflammation and break down collagen and elastin. These types of diets can also increase the risk for cardiovascular disease.

2. Healthier Body Fluids &gg Fresher Body Odor

Going on a vegan diet can actually make you physically taste appetizing to your partner — without adding any outside substances on your body. It is commonly believed fruits such as pineapples can give semen a better flavor by counteracting the acidic taste, according to a study done by the website Pork and Gin. Six heterosexual couples agreed to have one partner eat pineapple and the other to rate overall quality and sweetness of their “sex wee” for a week. Although the findings of the study should be proceeded with caution since there was no blinding, no randomization, and no control group, the researchers found eating pineapple can make a significance difference to both the overall taste and sweetness of bodily juices.

In regard to odor, a vegan diet that is high in fruits and vegetables, will keep your body smelling fresh. A 2006 study published in the journal Chemical Senses found body odor when on the nonmeat diet was judged as significantly more attractive, more pleasant, and less intense than meat-eaters. The findings highlight that red meat consumption has a negative impact on perceived body odor. Smelling good can lure your partner closer to you for some one-on-one time behind closed doors.

3. Increase Natural Lubrication

Vegan foods can naturally increase lubrication for women because of the high water volume in fruits and vegetables that are responsible in keeping the body hydrated. Cucumbers, watermelon, and cantaloupe can also help hydrate the skin, lump out fine lines, and give a radiant glow. Foods that are rich in omega 3 fatty acids such as sunflower seeds, raw pumpkin, salmon, among others, can help nourish and tonify a woman who suffers from vaginal dryness. Naturally increasing lubrication can eliminate those moments of reaching for the lube during sex by making both men and women feel more at ease and less self-conscious about their performance and bodies.

4. Increase Blood Flow

A vegan diet will not only scrub the plaque off the arterial walls from meat, but it will get the blood circulating to the nether regions, specifically for men. A meat-laden diet does not only negatively affect blood flow, but it also greatly increases the amount of synthetic hormones that the body takes in. These hormones can lead to a reduction in sperm count and even increase the risk of testicular tumors.

“Cutting meat and dairy products out of your diet is a great way to lower your cholesterol and blood pressure naturally and help get your equipment back in working condition,” according to People for Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Moreover, going on a vegan diet can help with weight loss in men, and therefore lead to an increase in penis length. The more blood flow to a man’s penis, the more likely women are bound to experience multiple orgasms.

5. Boost Energy

If you want to last longer in between the sheets, you need to increase your energy naturally. A vegan diet that is high in fruit content can provide more sustainable energy that will not lead to the “sugar crash” usually seen in processed sugar. For example, a banana is high in potassium, which is a nutrient that helps in sex-hormone production and boosts energy. Other energy boosting foods known as vegan aphrodisiacs include chocolate and nuts.

6. Happier & Less Stressed

Consuming fruits and veggies can effectively increase serotonin levels — the happy chemical — which can lead to the desire to have more sex. According to a 2012 study published in the Nutrition Journal, those who don’t eat any meat tend to be happier and less stressed than those who eat meat. The team of researchers attributed this to the presence of fatty acids, specifically arachidonic acid (AA) — an animal source of omega-6 fatty acids — which can cause mood-disturbing changes in the brain at high levels.
