Blokes looking to get their women ready for a night of lovin' might want to rethink the traditional champagne and strawberries routine. A study has come up with a new and more powerful aphrodisiac pomegranate juice.
Researchers at Edinburgh's Queen Margaret University tested a group of 58 men and women between the ages of 21 and 64 and found that pomegranates got their juices flowing, so to speak.
The group consumed consistent doses of pomegranate juice over the space of a fortnight and the researchers found dramatic increases in testosterone, which in turn umped up the examinees' sexual desire.
Not only did the subjects see their testosterone levels rise between 16 and 30 per cent, they also saw increased positivity and a dip in blood pressure.
For those unsure about increased testosterone in women, don't be. The hormone that makes men's beards grow, voices deep and initiates a little chest-beating machismo is also produced in female adrenal glands and ovaries.
This means that a little boost of testosterone in your missus raises her sex drive while strengthening her bones and muscles.
It's a win for you and a win for her.
Of course, when the woman in question asks why the fridge is suddenly crammed with cartons of pomegranate juice, you might want to tell her it's part of a healthy cleansing routine, not a sneaky way of giving her a much needed jolt in the sack.
