Cheers! Drinking one or two glasses of wine a day may give women a boost in bed, an Italian study found.
Go ahead and say yes to that glass of wine – especially if you’re on your way to the bedroom.
A new study found that women who drink one or two glasses of wine a day have better sex than those who don’t drink at all.
Researchers from the University of Florence, Italy, surveyed 800 women between the ages of 18 and 50 on their sexual satisfaction, using the Female Sexual Function Index, according to the Daily Mail. The index is used by doctors to assess women’s sexual health, based on factors including arousal, orgasm, satisfaction and pain.
Women who drank two glasses of wine a day scored an average of 27.3 points out of a possible 36 on the satisfaction scale, while those who stopped at one glass scored a 25.9 average. Non-drinkers averaged a 24.4.
“Historically, the aspects of wine and sexuality have been well known since the time of Ancient Greece,” the study’s lead author, Dr. Nicola Mondaini, told the Daily Mail. Female sexual dysfunction, on the other hand, is still “highly unexplored,” she said.
