Women Who Drink Wine Every Day Say They Have Better Sex


According to a new study, women who drink two glasses of wine every day say they’re having better sex than their teetotaling counterparts. To be fair, that could be the wine talking.

The survey, conducted at the University of Florence in— wait for it— Italy, assessed the sexual satisfaction of 800 women between age 18 and 50, using something called the Female Sexual Function Index. The FSFI is a 36-point scale that scores women’s sexual satisfaction based on self-reporting of orgasm, pain, and arousal. Women who drank zero glasses of wine scored an average of 24.4. One glass a day drinkers clocked in at 25.9. And the two glasses per day crew blew the competition away, amassing a score of 27.3 on average.

Researchers were mum on whether or not the drinkers were really enjoying sex more or if they were just already sort of tipsy, so more prone to broach bawdy topics with people in lab coats.

Using this logic, women who drink infinite amounts of wine will have infinity good sex. Is there anything wine can’t do? Besides solve any problems?
