Women Who Like Red Wine Have Better Sex Lives


According to researchers from the University of Florence, Italy, women who consume red wine have better sex lives. Scientists carried out their study among Tuscan women. They found that if a woman drinks one or two glasses of red wine each day, her sex life is more satisfying.

In their research, scientists polled 800 women aged from 18 to 50 about their sexual life. With the help of the Female Sexual Function Index, which is usually used to evaluate women and sexual health, researchers discovered that drinkers had a better score than teetotalers. Several factors influence the score, including: sexual arousal, orgasm, satisfaction and pain. The score ranges between 2 and 36 (the higher the score the better sexual health).

The overall results showed that women who consumed two glasses of red wine a day had an average of 27.3 points, those who drank one glass registered 25.9 points and 24.4 points were accumulated by the non-drinkers.

"Historically, the aspects of wine and sexuality have been well known since the time of Ancient Greece. But the field of female sexual dysfunction is still highly unexplored," mentioned the lead researcher of the study, Dr Nicola Mondaini. In addition, the study showed that older women have a better sex life. The study and its results will be available in the Journal of Sexual Medicine.
