A study has found that people are enjoying eating while they are having sex, and there’s evidence that this is due to the hormone oxytocin.
The study, which was carried out by the UK’s University of Southampton, tracked a group of people who were asked to have sex whilst eating, and found that their orgasms increased when they ate, with a similar increase being seen for those who had sex whilst drinking.
“The study showed that people who ate while having sex tended to experience stronger orgasms than people who didn’t eat while having fun,” said Dr Jennifer A. Molloy from the University of South Wales in Cardiff.
“Our results also suggest that eating while having a good time may lead to a boost in oxytocimin levels.”
The findings are consistent with a number of other research that has found people have more fun when they are engaged in sex.
But if you’re worried about your sex life getting a boost from eating, you can try to limit the amount of sex you have while you’re having sex.
“When it comes to sex, oxytocinemia is just one of the hormones that are involved,” said Ms Molloys.
“It is not the only one, but it is one of them.
You might be able to limit it if you are using condoms.”
