According to a study carried out by the Santa Maria Nuova Hospital in Florence, drinking one to two glasses of red wine a day increases female sexual desire.

The study investigated 789 Italian women aged between 18 and 50.

Drinking red wine not only helps to release inhibitions, but also has a direct effect on sexual activity

Women who drink one to two glasses of wine a day were found to be more sexually active than those who abstain.

Dark chocolate, which is rich in antioxidants, has a similarly positive effect on the female libido.
