3 Foods to Avoid if You Want Great Sex!

man eating wrong food for great sex

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

avoid sugar and sweetener for great sex1) Sugar and artificial sweeteners – 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 preservatives2) Foods which contain preservatives – unfortunately your body hasn’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 problems3) Wheat – eating wheat is the equivalent of injecting yourself with sugar. 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.

Interested in your article. Can you please mail me part 1.

Ebee - December 9, 2016 Reply

I can’t even stay for 30 seconds so please tell me what to be eating.

    Jacqui Olliver - December 9, 2016 Reply

    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.

I am 42 years old and been doing very good in sex until a month ago, I started experiencing weak erections, and I need some help from you. Just read your articles will try to put into place the factors to enhance my sex life, but I need more information.

    Jacqui Olliver - August 18, 2016 Reply

    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.

McPaddie - August 16, 2016 Reply

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.

    Jacqui Olliver - August 16, 2016 Reply

    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.

At start am high. When she needs more am back to normal. What should I do?

    Jacqui Olliver - February 18, 2016 Reply

    Hi Nelson, that depends. Are you lasting long enough for her the first round? If you’re ejaculating early then she will keep wanting more, in which case it’s best for you to learn how to last longer the first time.

anthony - February 9, 2016 Reply

Yeah – that stands to reason what you say. But hard to get away from wheat unless you go gluten-free – which is expensive. I make my own bread when I think I need a change – but still use the ordinary flour.

    Jacqui Olliver - February 18, 2016 Reply

    Hi Anthony, it’s easier to go Paleo (no grains) instead of gluten free. I recommend Paleo Hacks which contains over 200 delicious, mouth watering recipes 🙂

    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.

khalil Rehman - October 13, 2015 Reply

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.

    Jacqui Olliver - October 20, 2015 Reply

    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.

Ryan - September 28, 2014 Reply

I agree… Sweeteners and packaged foods can spoil your sport and can ruin ones sexual performance.

    Jacqui Olliver - September 29, 2014 Reply

    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.
