The aphrodisiac power of red wine
One of the most hyped members of the food and beverage world, not only will red wine halt those evil free radicals and keep you skinny and young, but it will also spark sensors of attraction.
According to the research of Dr. Max Lake, who I’m proud to name among my mentors, the mere scent of certain red wines can be arousing. In his book Scents and Sensuality, he writes on his research in the field of scent and arousal. Lake discovered that compounds in wine (as well as several foods) replicated those of human pheromones.
Red wines with arousing aromas
In the game of seduction, musky, masculine reds are best. Play with earthy Pinots like those from Burgundy and Oregon. Burly Cabs can also work, particularly when they offer aromas of leather, tobacco and earth. When wine is used as an aphrodisiac the scent is key (although the alcohol always helps knock down walls). But those red wines that strike a masculine note are said to imitate the scent of male pheromones.
What’s good for your heart is good for your sexual health
Of course red wine is also beneficial, to some degree, to heart health. And what’s good for the heart is also good for your sex life. Why is that? The antioxidants in red wine that are good for vascular health are essentially helping promote blood flow. And you can’t get sexually aroused–or orgasm–without healthy blood flow.
I will add that white wines also offer heart healthy antioxidants but since most of the important antioxidants are found in the skin and seeds of the grapes, and white wines generally spend less time with skin contact than do reds, whites offer less of the heart healthy benefits of reds. But whatever wine you choose, know that it offers something good for your heart and for your sexual satisfaction. So, cheers to your health!
