Women who drink WINE are better in BED, study claims


Content Editor / May 09 2019

Having a glass of wine (or two) is a nice way to unwind at the end of the day, but now there’s even more reason to indulge in your favourite drop!

Scientists from the University of Florence in Italy say that women who drink two glasses of wine are better in bed.

Not only that, they are more satisfied after a night of love than women who don’t drink, or who just have one glass.

Researchers looked at the habits of 800 women aged between 18 and 50, asking about their levels of sexual satisfaction.

The study showed that when women drink two glasses of wine before getting intimate with their partner, there are benefits all round.

“‘Historically, the aspects of wine and sexuality have been well known since the time of Ancient Greece,” said study author Dr Nicola Mondani.

Researchers were also quick to point out that women should be careful to drink in moderation, however.

The Australian Guidelines recommend healthy adults should drink no more than two standard drinks on any day and should also aim for at least two alcohol-free days a week.
