Don't fear your lush lifestyle. A new study has found that drinking two glasses of wine a day could add a significant boost to a female's sex life. The study, which was conducted at Florence's Santa Maria Annunziata Hospital, will be published in this October's Journal of Sexual Medicine.
It received feedback from 800 Tuscan women between the ages of 18 and 50 using the Female Sexual Function Index, a measuring system with a scale from two to 36 that's employed by physicians to assess the sexual health and satisfaction of women. Women who drank two glasses of wine a day scored an average of 27.3 points. Those who drank one glass averaged a 25.9 rating, and non-drinkers registered at a mere 24.4.
"The aspects of wine and sexuality have been well known since the time of Ancient Greece," added Nicola Mondaini, the study's lead author. How do you feel about the findings?
