Go ahead, spend another hour on the beach! While there have been numerous reports of the harmful effects of the sun, it CAN improve your life in one area..
Yup, experts say that vitamin D, which you get with an increased dose of sun exposure, changes your sex drive. Sexual health expert Aly Dilks says that Vitamin D is known to stimulate the release of testosterone (in men), which is the hormone responsible for our sex drive. She adds, “Think back to caveman times, those men catching food out in the sun all day, still needed the energy to come back and procreate to save their race. This is nature at its rawest”.
Hooo-kay. Nice imagery there, Aly.
At the same time, Vitamin D is known to increase levels of estrogen levels in women, which in turn increases the female sex drive.
So – there ya go! Soak up the sun for some improved ‘sexy time’. Just remember protection. And yes, I’m talking about sun block. 🙂 ~ Jason
