Are There Any Benefits of quitting smoking Sexually?

When Mark Jordan was a 22-year-old substitute teacher in Phoenix, he had been smoking for about a year and noticed the fire in his love life was no longer raging. “Sex was suddenly getting boring,” he says. “I didn’t want to have it. I would get out of breath so easily, and I simply felt gross.” While he averaged only half a pack a day, he often smoked much more on the weekends. The effects were not good.

“I remember having sex in the shower and feeling like I was going to pass out,” he says. That was a turning point. He stopped smoking, started exercising, and began to eat right. After the changes, he had a much greater interest in sex and enjoys it more than ever. The benefits of quitting smoking sexually can include:

 

Last Longer: A 2005 study in the American Journal of Epidemiology suggests that Erectile dysfunction (ED or Impotence)  is more likely in men who smoked compared with those who never did. But in younger men with ED, cigarette smoking is very likely the cause. If you are a heavy smoker, research suggests the odds of developing ED are much higher. However, quitting smoking can improve ED symptoms. Your age, the severity of your ED before quitting smoking, and other major health problems may reduce the degree that healthy erectile function can return. The nicotine found in cigarettes causes blood vessels to contract, restricting blood flow required by our little (or big) friend to get and/or maintain an erection. So, gents, if you want to keep it up, put that cigarette down. Way down.

 

Faster Arousal: It’s not you, it’s him. Studies have linked smoking in men to decreased sexual arousal, appetite and satisfaction in the bedroom – with one report suggesting that non-smoking men had sex nearly twice as often as their smoking counterparts. If the prospect of more sex and greater satisfaction for both you and your partner hasn’t stopped you from reaching for another one, read on, my friend.

 

Increased sexual performance: Ever felt a sudden lull in sexual desire after a smoke? Well, it might also be affecting your performance in the bedroom. Smoking reduces the body’s ability to carry oxygen, an element responsible for producing 90 per cent – yes! 90 per cent – of our energy. It also wreaks havoc on the airways, lungs and predisposes to heart disease. Continue to smoke and you could experience an increasing loss of stamina and shortness of breath. Quit smoking and you might just be able to give that 2000 pocket sprung mattress the bounce it deserves.

 

Higher satisfaction for you and your partner: According to a report published in the International Journal of Impotence Research, a decrease in libido, combined with a fallen ability to get aroused, could give rise to sub-optimal sexual performance – leaving both you and your partner as satisfied as rhino without mud. When it comes to sex, it really does take two to tango. SEE: How Does Smoking Affect Your Brain
