Scientists may have stumbled upon the long-awaited viagra for women: apples.
Yes, according to new research published in the Archives of Gynecology and Obstetrics, scientists believe that apples can improve the sexual arousal levels in women.
The study looked at the sex lives of 731 Italian women and found that the women who ate 1 to 2 apples a day had better sex lives than those who didn’t.
The women (all between the ages of 18 and 43) were separated into two groups, one group who at never ate apples and of course the other who ate 1 to 2 apples daily. Both groups, who had no previous sexual dysfunction in their medical history, were asked by the researchers to complete a Female Sexuality Function Index questionnaire to measure their sexual function, sexual frequency, orgasm, lubrication and overall sexual satisfaction.
The results showed that the women who at apples at least once a day had higher Female Sexuality Function Index scores than the women who probably just ate junk food, meaning that their overall sexual satisfaction was higher.
So why are apples good for a woman’s sex life?
Well according to the researchers, apples contain polyphenols and antioxidants, which can stimulate blood flow to the genitals (including the vagina) therefore boosting arousal. It’s exactly the same thing as using chocolate or red wine as an aphrodisiac, because they, like apples, increase blood flow to genitalia.
On top of boosting blood flow, apples are also high in phloridzin, which is structurally similar to the female sex hormone estradiol thus boosting lubrication and female sexuality.
So there you go ladies! If you’re not satisfied with your sex life, try eating more apples! Not only will an apple a day keep the doctor away, it will help you fuck his brains out if you want.
