Yesterday I read this story on the Decanter web site:
“Red wine increases the female sex drive
Red wine increases the female libido, research has found.
According to a study carried out by the Santa Maria Nuova Hospital in Florence, drinking one to two glasses of red wine a day increases female sexual desire. The study investigated 789 Italian women aged between 18 and 50.
Drinking red wine not only helps to release inhibitions, but also has a direct effect on sexual activity. Women who drink one to two glasses of wine a day were found to be more sexually active than those who abstain. Dark chocolate, which is rich in antioxidants, has a similarly positive effect on the female libido. ”
In one way I find the article funny but in another so tacky. The fact that the study was done in Italy adds to both of those feeling. May be this is why I like Riesling so much those days, it is quiet, delicate, complex and refined.
