Smoking found to reduce sexual pleasure
By MICHAEL SMITH
- A new study says non-smoking men have more sex and enjoy it more than smokers, but the researchers at the American Institute of Andrology say they're not sure why. "We do not completely understand the mechanism," said researcher Panayiotis Zavos of the Lexington, Ky., institute. Nearly four in 10 American men of reproductive age are smokers, Zavos said, but until this study, there was no data on how cigarettes affect sexual behavior and enjoyment.
The research is surprising, said fertility researcher Susan Benoff
of the New York University School of Medicine, but fits with several
recent studies showing that smoking alters behavior. "I've seen
three or four reports in the past few weeks about smoking causing
alterations in behavior," Benoff said. "Would I have expected
this?" Benoff said. "No, but I'm not as surprised
as I would have been."
