This should come as no surprise to anyone except maybe Charlie Sheen. But researchers concluded recently that being on drugs, smoking, drinking and overeating is bad for your sex life — especially for men.
Now, we know the cocaine makes you feel like a porn star, Charlie, but that's apparently all in your head.
Ask the experts at the Statens Serum Institut in Denmark, who say in a study published the Journal of Sexual Medicine that “unhealthy lifestyle factors were associated with sexual inactivity,” according to a summary of the findings:
Increased waistlines translated to 71 percent rate of bad (or no) sex for men. Dudes who used hard drugs increased that rate to 800 percent.
Women used hash (not a big thing here, but still) were three times as likely as non-drug-using women to have trouble reaching orgasm.
The study by Marten Frisch looked at 5,552 men and women ranging in age from 16 to 97.
The professor stateth:
Knowing about possible negative consequences of an unhealthy lifestyle to one's sexual health may help people quit smoking, consume less alcohol, exercise more, and lose weight.
We're starting a diet right now.
