The Sexier Side of Red Wine

  • Publish Date: Feb 11, 2010

According to a study conducted in Australia, a few hours in the sun can boost your libido nearly 70%. If true, that means that we Northern Hemisphere dwellers need to turn elsewhere to turn up the heat during the winter months.

Luckily, the Italians have put together some data that suggests we can find our solution in two glasses of red wine each day. According to a study by the University of Florence that surveyed 800 women between the ages of 18 and 50, drinking a little “red, red wine” really will make you “feel so fine.” (At least when compared to those who prefer other forms of alcohol or stay away from the drink all together).

We’re no love doctors, but we are still going to recommend you maintain a daily diet that includes a glass of red wine between now and Valentine’s Day. Worst case scenario—you’ll have a healthier heart.
