Feeling friskier than usual? If youâ€™ve switched tobacco cigarettes for electronic, then vaping may be the reason.
A 2011 study published in China Science Daily has uncovered evidence directly linking vaping to increased sex drive. The Chinese studyâ€™s test subjects were found to have:
- 67% increase in stamina
- 99% increase in sexual desire
Even more astounding was that 43% of those tested who had previously displayed symptoms of impotence were found to be completely cured.
Overall, the study found that the more your vape, the hornier you are likely to get. Researchers are speculating that the most likely reason for this increased amorousness is because the nicotine in e-cigarettes, freed from the toxins in tobacco smoke, positively impacted upon both male and female testosterone production.
While this study cannot be regarded as definitive evidence that electronic cigarettes will improve your sex life, the negative impact of smoking on sexual ability and desire is well documented.
The build-up of toxins from inhaling cigarette smoke causes lethargy, reduces endurance, andÂ decreases testosterone levels, thereby reducing libido. When considering these effects, itâ€™s hardly surprising to learn that many men who experience erectile dysfunction are also smokers.
Apart from the physical effects smoking has on sex, letâ€™s consider the social aspect it plays in the mating game. Smoking is no longer considered socially acceptable, and likely to impact upon any singleâ€™s chances of finding a prospective partner (unless, of course, you hook up with another smoker).
After all, smellingÂ like an ashtrayÂ having tobacco-stained teeth can hardly be considered turn on.Â Plus all that coughing and wheezing doesn’t exactly add up to a winning combination.
Once converted to vaping, ex-smokers overwhelmingly report greater physical stamina and improved senses of smell and taste â€“ all of which are likely to improve and enhance any sexual encounter.
So even though this study is far from irrefutable proof that e-cigarettes make for a better sex life, quittingÂ tobacco cigarettesÂ will definitely make for happier times between the sheets.
