Not only is it Oktoberfest, but it’s football season, so chances are, you’re consuming even more beer than you normally do. If your girl is giving you a hard time about your health — between those wings on Monday night and the third round of brewskies at the biergarten — I have some good news to share with her:
Beer can actually make you better in bed.
And nope — not only just because you’re likely happier while you drink it, but for scientific reasons, too. The next time she starts nagging you to be smarter about your choices — send her this article. Just remember these facts are only true… in moderation.
Beer Can Delay Premature Ejaculation
If you sometimes arrive early to the party, having your favorite brew might help you wait until the right moment for the grand finale. According to sex expert, Dr. Kat Van Kirk, the phytoestrogens in beer can work to delay ejaculation, helping you to keep her satisfied longer.
Dark Beer Can Get You In The Mood
Fun fact about darker beer – it has more iron than pale beer. When you have more iron in your system, it actually helps you get in the mood because it increases red blood cells and overall circulation allowing forerections to be easier — and more frequent, according to Dr. Kat. Need to get amped up to do the deed when you’re tired from watching football all night? Have another dark beer.
Beer Gives You More Endurance
According to a study from researchers at Italy’s Fondazione di Ricerca e Cura, a pint a day makes you 31% less likely than those who don’t drink to suffer from heart attacks, strokes or heart disease. This means that when paired with exercise — beer is actually keeping your heart healthier, giving you more cardio endurance to thrust away.
Guinness Is Good For Stomach Issues
If beer belly is preventing you from really wanting to go for it and try new positions after your favorite team scores — you can score yourself by throwing back a Guinness. Dr. Kirk says that Guinness is rich in vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin B and others that have probiotic qualities. “This means it can help fortify your overall health and be better on your stomach so you won’t feel sluggish during sex.”
There’s A Beer For Performance
Skip the Viagra if you take it and opt for a pale ale called 50 Shades of Green. Made by Innis & Gunn, it’s said to be performance enhancing, according to Dr. Kirk. “The company uses ginseng, ginkgo biloba and damiana to achieve increased sexual desire, blood flow and nerve stimulation,” she says. I’ll drink to that!
