3 Foods to Avoid if You Want Great Sex!

Which Foods to Avoid for Good Sex

You’ve heard that you need to improve your diet and exercise regularly to improve sexual function and last longer in bed. What you might not know about are the specific foods which consistently play havoc on your ability to stay in control of your intimate moments.

Do foods affect sexual function? The short answer is yes. Regardless of what anyone tells you, your brain requires a huge amount of energy for sex. Therefore, common foods which you may regularly consume can be detrimentally affecting your sexual experience and may contribute to episodes of early ejaculation, impotency or being unable to orgasm.

To be able to stay hard (and/or orgasm when you want to) requires the ability to think clearly. After all, you don’t want to be accidentally activating the wrong sexual programs in your brain due to your mind becoming foggy or distracted with random thoughts! This often happens when your brain is feeling too lazy to concentrate on the sexual act.

Foods Which Create Brain Fog Will Affect Your Sex Life

Certain foods create what I call “brain fog” which is the equivalent of feeling like you have a scrambled brain.

As well as contributing to performance anxiety during sex, eating these foods can result in accidental ejaculation or loss of erection – or random thoughts which take away your enjoyment of sex, as your mentally foggy brain attempts to stay focused.

Despite your immense struggle for power… your food choices may be forfeiting your ability to control or enjoy the sexual act.

avoid sugar and sweetener for great sex

When you can’t think clearly and coherently during sex, you will be unable to reason your next course of action. Without a clear and focused outlook, you may lack the mental dexterity to account for unexpected moves from your partner.

As well as impeding blood flow by causing inflammation in your body, these foods can make you randomly lose hardness or the ability to time your orgasm – or render you incapable of orgasm.

1. Sugar and Artificial Sweeteners

Can sugar and artificial sweeteners affect sex? Yes. They may give you a quick high, but it won’t last long before you crash. And if you crash during sex, things could get messy. Sugar hides in many foods including bread, condiments, tomato sauce, soda drinks and fruit juices.

Even though the sugar contained in fruit juice is “natural” it’s not natural for your body to process fruit without the fiber to slow down sugar absorption. Artificial sweeteners are even worse because they are manufactured from chemicals. Make sure you avoid like the plague, any foods containing high fructose corn syrup – and always read food labels!

foods which contain preservatives

2. Preservatives

Do preservatives cause sex problems? Yes they can. Unfortunately our bodies haven't evolved to process man made preservatives, many of which have been linked to cancer and other unwanted disorders. Preservatives directly affect your ability to perform in bed and are found in almost all packaged foods including condiments – mayonnaise, humus, tomato sauce and potato chips, corn chips, etc.

wheat causes sex problems

3. Wheat

Is eating wheat bad for your sex life? Yes, considering the fact that eating wheat is the equivalent of injecting yourself with sugar, which totally messes with your energy levels. Your insulin is spiked, then it crashes. Wheat also contains gluten which causes many digestive disorders. Sluggish digestive system means a sluggish brain, which means loss of sexual dexterity. Wheat is a common ingredient found in cereals, bread, sandwiches, muffins, bagels, biscuits, cakes, meat patties, processed meats and as a thickening agent.

Packaged foods include many of the above ingredients. For example, bread. Although the label might indicate there is ONE preservative in a loaf of bread, in reality many of the ingredients contain a preservative to keep that particular ingredient fresh, before it is made into bread.

Although there are many other foods which cause inflammation in your body including canola oil and soya oil, this article has focused on the top three culprits which may be destroying your ability to enjoy great sex.

In summary, if you want to gain the ability to have consistently have great sex, then avoid or reduce the above mentioned foods and beverages which cause brain fog. Start increasing your sexual fitness with regular exercises to improve sexual function.

  • Hello Dr. when I masturbate, I do ejaculate very fast I don’t stay long, I release sperm in less than 2-3 minutes, what can I do please?

  • Hi doctor thanks a lot for all your noble advice and care, am 41 years old proudly Nigerian. I can only last for 3 minutes during sex with my beloved wife, this is being a serious problem now. Before I used to last for 45-50 minutes before I ejaculate, my beloved wife enjoys my sex reaches orgasm but now, I can only last for 3 minutes. Please what I do now? I eat only natural foods no artificial foods, but still have premature ejaculation. Have seen a urologist and done some tests, they said I have no issues. Please advise me, thanks.

    • Hi Dre, this problem often happens randomly for the first time and causes much confusion. It usually happens due to incorrect balance of sexual focus which you can read more about here.

    • Hi Opoku, are you experiencing tiredness due to the stress of not lasting long enough, or from a medical condition? I suggest you go to a local medical doctor and have a full exam first, to ensure any medical issues are being addressed.

  • Hello Dr, my husband has a problem, he takes long to erect and ejaculates very quickly like after 30 seconds. What can I do to help him? Thank you

    • Hi Flavia, when a man has a long-term premature ejaculation problem it often results in a problem becoming erect. This happens because he tries to shutdown his awareness of sensation and inadvertently catapults himself to the opposite end of the arousal scale. This is very stressful for both of you as neither can complete the act. The key to restoring full control over his arousal levels and a happy and satisfying sex life is explained in my Sex Mastery: Hard AND in Control program for men.

    • Hi Ebee, foods can impact your sex life but generally they aren’t the cause of sex problems. To be able to last longer, you must control the direction of your focus – in other words, how you focus your attention. Your brain operates via signals and when it comes to sex, it is your thoughts and actions which have the greatest influence on these signals. Correcting your focus is what enables a man to get hard, stay hard and time his ejaculation.

    • Hi, it can be common for sex problems such as ED to just suddenly start occurring. This usually has very little to do with diet and exercise. The most common denominator in sexual dysfunction problems is lack of correct sexual focus. This leads to the brain becoming confused, which leads to the wrong muscle program being activated (or in your case, deactivated.)

      Fortunately, ED and other sex problems can be easily resolved by learning the procedure your brain needs, to stay hard and in control. This is fully explained in my pre-recorded program and 1/1 session.

  • Hello Dr. Of recent times I only go for one round and don’t get the urge for sex or can’t even go for more even if my spouse demands for more, till next day. Sometimes my penis gets weak when am in her. Please, I need your help Doctor.

    • Hi McPaddie, it’s common for the penis muscles to start losing strength after the age of about 20 years old. This is why many men have problems becoming erect after ejaculating early during the first round, their penis isn’t as strong as it was. When you worry too much about ejaculating during intercourse you can then under stimulate your brain sexually which results in loss of erection hardness. You may want to refer to my “3 Best Exercises to Improve Sexual Function” blog post.

    • It’s unlikely the infection caused your premature ejaculation problem, however, if you are constantly thinking about your penis during sex you will activate the ejaculation program in your brain.

  • Instead of getting full erection, why does my penis begin to secrete a sticky and transparent liquid .?if it does not happen can I get full erection?pls help me.l am married.

    • Hi Khalil, the sticky liquid is called pre-cum and is your built in lubrication. You can still get a full erection when this liquid excretes from your penis.

    • That’s right, Ryan. Everything you put in your mouth is going to affect your sexual performance – either in a good way, or a bad way. Especially if you are physically unfit (or work long hours) bad food choices will always make any sexual problems worse.
