So you’ve got a hot date planned for tonight. You’ve got your outfit picked out, and it’s looking like things will go well. But what if you accidentally mess it up by eating the wrong foods?
I’m a coffee lover, but I had no idea caffeine raises cortisol levels. Too much cortisol can make it hard to relax, which doesn’t help when you’re trying to get in the mood.
If you’re sick, it might be a good idea to reschedule: Allergy and cold medications often contain decongestants, which might affect a woman’s natural lubricant.
Make sure you take a few bathroom breaks as well. Urinating before and after sex helps avoid urinary tract infections, which can be extremely painful.
If you’re ordering a drink at dinner, skip both alcohol and soda. Soda is linked to increased intestinal gas, and alcohol can make you sleepy.
Also, avoid food-related foreplay. Sugary foods like whipped cream and chocolate sauce can cause yeast infections, so it’s not worth the risk.
