Studies Show People Who Like Spicy Food Are Having More Sex
Some like it spicy in and out of the bedroom. A new study polled the palette preferences of 2,000 Americans and found that people who like hot foods like it hot in the bedroom too.
Subjects who reported that they loved spicy food had twice the amount of sex than those whose tastebuds were a little more bland, NY Post reports. The difference came out to be 5.3 times a month for those who liked it spicy, and 3.2 times a month for those who can’t take the heat.
The survey, conducted by researchers at OnePoll, were mining for data to correlate sexual preferences with spice on behalf of the hot sauce brand El Yucateco. The participants were asked personality questions and then asked how they prefer their food (none, mild, medium, and hot).
There were other personality traits linked to spicy food. People who reported loving roller coasters, loud music, or driving fast also marked spicy food as a fav.
Hot and spicy eaters were also 45% more likely to have traveled around the world, gone rafting or jumped off a plane. Aside from being adventurous, spicy food eaters are 29% more likely to be working towards their dreams and are twice as likely to self-report having stellar health habits.
A spokesperson for the hot sauce brand, El Yucateco, told the Post, “It’s no surprise to us to see the results from this poll. Our interactions with our loyal fan base indicates that they are adventurous, outgoing and live life to its fullest.”
Perhaps in your next dating experience, you can take your potential boo to a Mexican restaurant and test out your date’s ability to withstand the heat. It could give you some insider information on their likes and dislikes without even asking questions.
