Scientific researchers have determined that caffeinated female test subjects are more likely than their drowsy counterparts to seek out sex, which led these researchers to conclude that caffeine may make females want to have sex.
So, does this mean that caffeine could possibly be a sex potion for females? Researchers say caffeine may put females in the mood for sex.
In their study, female rats that got their first shot of caffeine before mating were quicker than uncaffeinated females to scurry back to a male rat after sex. The caffeinated females weren't just looking for company. It looks as if they wanted to have sex again.
Might caffeine also rev up women's sex lives? Maybe, but it's too early to say. A new study titled "Coffee, Tea, and Me," is due to appear in an upcoming issue of Pharmacology, Biochemistry, and Behavior.
Consume Caffeine, Crave Sex? We are not advising women to use caffeine as an aphrodisiac, at least, not yet. Lets just say those caffeinated female rats weren't exactly shy.
The caffeinated females would come and visit faster, and they would stay with the males until they received sexual stimulation before they left.
Might caffeine also rev up women's sex lives? Maybe, but it's too early to say, says Fay Guarraci, an assistant professor of psychology at Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas.
"It wasn't just that they wanted to be around them. It seemed to be particularly relevant to the sexual interaction, the stimulation they would receive," Guarraci says.
Caffeine didn't affect how quickly the female rats left their partners after sex, the study shows.
