The results of the survey revealed that 57% of vegetarians enjoyed sex at least 3-4 times a week while 49% non-vegetarians only had it once or twice a week. Not just that, vegetarians enjoyed more dirty talk, foreplay and making out as compared to meat-eaters. 84% of vegetarians were satisfied with their sex lives while just 59% of non-vegetarians were happy with theirs.
As per the findings, the very fact that vegetarians consume more aphrodisiac foods like fenugreek leaves, aniseed, maca and ginseng, they feel more eager to have sex. Apart from these, there are a lot of vegetables that are natural aphrodisiacs and promote sexual excitement.
You must be wondering what makes vegetarians so good in bed? And if a plant-based diet can help increase libido or no? Well, leafy greens are loaded with vitamins C, polyphenols and beta-carotene. All of which help increase your sex drive and also keeps your vagina lubricated. Root vegetables, on the other hand, like sweet potato, carrots and avocados are rich in vitamin A which improves your sex drive with increases testosterone.
But, research shows that being a vegetarian can also have a negative effect on your sex life. Women who are vegetarians are prone to loss of periods which is why they suffer from vaginal dryness, low testosterone and low libido. Not just that, vegetarian diets also don’t contain zinc as much which can lead to hampering sex drives.
Hence, the takeaway from this survey is that if you’re a meat-eater with sluggish sex life, you don’t really need to change your diet or lifestyle to have sex. You could simply start adding more plant-based foods or adopt a meatless day a week. This will help you fight climate change and also improve your overall health and well-being.
