The Doctors share three unusual tips that could improve your sex life!
Tip #1: Blow your nose before foreplay.
According to new research, blow your nose and you may just have mind-blowing sex! A clogged nose prevents you from receiving important smells and pheromones which are essential to achieving orgasm. The Doctors all agree how powerful pheromones and sense of smell are to getting in the mood. ER physician Dr. Travis Stork explains the olfactory bulb can get the limbic system firing and ear, nose and throat specialist Dr. Andrew Ordon adds “The biggest and best sex organ is right between your ears. Ninety-nine percent is mental and the rest is up to you!” Dr. Travis shares the findings of one study which said women who had the strongest sense of smell had the best orgasms.
Tip #2: Hey men… eat some beets!
Beets help the male body to produce nitric oxide which helps open up blood vessels. This is a good thing for blood flow to the penis, resulting in stronger erections, and can be helpful for men with erectile dysfunction. Dr. Ordon calls beets “nature’s blue pill.” He says erectile dysfunction drugs also work with nitric acid to open up blood passages for more engorgement.
OB/GYN Dr. Nita Landry avoids eating her beet because the study they are discussing is referring specifically to men! She notes that if men are experiencing ED, they should talk to somebody to figure out the reason. While it could be due to stress, anxiety or relationship issues it could also be a result of diabetes, heart problems or specific medication.
Tip #3: Get it on with saffron.
This spice is an ancient aphrodisiac. The International Journal of Food and Research says saffron can improve sex drive and performance. Another study in Natural Medicine Journal says saffron may help women suffering from sexual dysfunction. The Doctors sip some Sexy Saffron Tonic (get the recipe here!) which Dr. Travis highly recommends. Dr. Nita says on a scale of 1 to 10, she’d give it a 3, however, if it does what it says it’s supposed to, she would bump it up to a strong 9.5!
Dr. Travis shares one last tip which is to exercise for improved sex. Dr. Ordon jumps in to note that people may think alcohol helps but it actually has the opposite effect. And lastly, for good sex, Dr. Nita says to throw away those cigarettes.
