Eating Shrimp Leads To More Sex


When I was growing up, my cheap-o immigrant parents would always tell me to eat as much shrimp as possible when we went to buffets because shrimp is expensive. 

As an adult, I often find myself leaning towards ordering seafood at restaurants because it was grilled into my diet by my parents... but good news for my dates. A new study says that eating seafood leads to more sex. But possible bad news for those dates, it also leads to increased fertility.

Researchers from Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health said that seafood boosts men and women's sex drives and improves the quality of their sperm and eggs. The study was published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism.

The study said that people who eat at least two portions of seafood a week have more sex and get pregnant faster. Couples are also more likely to have sex on days they eat seafood. So that old wive's tale that oysters are aphrodisiacs is actually true!

“[The study] suggests both partners should be incorporating more seafood into their diets for the maximum fertility benefit," study leader Dr. Audrey Gaskins said.

Health officials recommend people eat 2-3 portions of seafood a week, but the majority of people only eat 1/3 of a portion a week.

So if you're looking for sex and a baby, go out and get that sushi, folks.
