Contrary to what most movies portray that smoking may enhance your sex life, smoking actually deprives it. Smokers have more coronary artery blockage compared to non smokers. Because erections are primarily due to the blood flowing into the penis through arteries, artery blockage actually deprives erection and therefore affecting a smoker's sex life.
Nicotine actually also restricts blood flow. It has also been studied that long term use of nicotine can permanently damage the arteries. Since a man's erection depends on blood flow, smoking can cause softer erection even with just 2 cigarettes.
As for women, during sexual arousal, the clitoris and vagina will swell up with blood circulation, similar to the section of a man's penis. As mention, since nicotine restrictions blood flow, it may also negatively affect a sex sensation towards a woman.
A British Medical Association report which is titled "Smoking and Reproductive Life" actually states that women who smoke longer may take a longer time to conceive. The chances of conceiving will decrease by 10 to 40 percent per cycle. The more a woman smokers, the longer it is to conceive.
Smoking can also reduce the quality of semen, affecting the fertility of a man. Smokers who are men have lower sperm counts than non-smokers. Their semen may also contain more proportion of malformed sperm. The mobility of sperm is also reduced due to the presence of nicotine. Studies has also discovered that carbon monoxide affects the production of testosterone which create sex drive.
Other than having better sex life, smoking actually comes with a lot of other health benefits such as more radiant skin, no more odor, clean and white teeth, more energy, sleep better, feel better in life, more self confidence and more.
With so many negative effects on your health, including depriving your sex life, is not it high time that you seriously considered to quit smoking?
