What foods should I avoid before sex?
Getting minty fresh could cause problems when you get between the sheets
WHETHER you’re on a hot date or planning a cosy night in with your other half, you want to make sure your breath smells fresh.
But if you’re planning to take it to the bedroom, chewing gum could be a big mistake.
The act of chewing, without swallowing, can lead to bloating as you swallow air.
Also, your tummy will think there’s food coming and will release stomach enzymes used to digest food which can lead to gastric problems – and plenty of wind.
So while your mouth will smell minty, you may be prone to emitting other smells during the romp.
Peppermint is also known to repress testosterone, leading to a lower libido.
Chewing gum is not the only thing you should be avoiding before a session between the sheets.
If your idea of a great date is chomping on a cheeseburger, washed down with wine, there’s more bad news.
