If your sex life isn’t sizzling then smoking could be to blame.
It’s another great reason for you – and your partner – to quit.
Bad breath. Smoke-infused hair. Stained teeth. No wonder smokers’ sex lives are suffering.
Smoking can play havoc with your energy levels. Cigarette smoke contains carbon monoxide, which sticks to haemoglobin – the pigment in the red blood cells that carries oxygen. When there are raised levels of carbon monoxide in the blood, it affects the body’s ability to carry oxygen. Stub out the cigarettes, though, and you should notice an improvement in your energy levels within 72 hours.
Cigarette tar damages the airways and the lungs, so it’s no surprise that smokers often find that they're short of breath. One result is that smoking could mean your sex life is a little less energetic. The good news is that quitting cigarettes will give you your breath back – with an improvement in lung capacity of up to 10% within nine months.
If your partner is a smoker, it may take him longer to get in the mood for sex than if he were a non-smoker, according to research published in the British Journal of Urology International. In the study, a group of men participating in a two-month smoking cessation programme were monitored for their reactions to an adult film. At the end of the programme, when the men watched the film for the third and final time, the ones who’d quit became sexually aroused faster than the men who hadn’t.
Erectile problems and impotence
Numerous studies have pointed to a link between smoking and erectile problems and impotence. Meanwhile, a review of US research into male impotence undertaken over a 20-year period found that 40% of men suffering from impotence were smokers, compared to 28% of non-smokers. If your partner is a smoker, this is another great reason to quit.
