Men’s Health’s 20 Greatest Ever Sex Tips


1. Watermelon is a natural Viagra. A 110g serving contains roughly 150mg of citrulline which will increase the duration of intercourse by 3.8 minutes. Five a day just got a lot more interesting. (Texas A&M University)

2. Cheese contains 10 times more arousing phenylethylamine (PEA) than chocolate. Make it more sexy and less Dairylea, with a fondue set. (sex author Siski Green)

3. That skinful last night makes sex even better than a bacon sarnie. The alcohol in your blood widens blood vessels and keeps blow flowing to the penis. (Indiana University)

4. Make your morning-after even better than the night before – with salmon. It’s high in arginine, which prolongs arousal. Serve it on top of scrambled egg on toast. (British Nutrition Foundation)

5. Finish off a meal with some apple pie. The US scent arouses our British roses, increasing her genital sensitivity by up to 24%. (Chicago Smell and Taste Research Foundation)

6. Increase your sperm count by up to 74% by regularly eating a range of zinc-rich foods, such as beef, pecans and pine nuts. (Journal of Fertility and Sterility)


7. The thrill really is in the chase. Running 3.5 hours per week boosts sex drive by 75%. (Kinsey Institute)

8. Squeeze in some press-ups and sit-ups. Muscular men have an average four more sexual partners than their less muscle-bound bros. (University of California)

9. Get a few extra winks. Sleeping for longer allows the body to produce more testosterone, which increases your sex drive. (Journal of Applied Psychology)

10. Do it on the sofa once in a while. Novelty produces more dopamine, giving a stronger orgasm. Unless your flatmates are in of course. (University of Kentucky)

11. Stress destroys your sex drive. Counter this and increase blood flow to your penis by taking a bath at 38°C – invite her in, too. (Holistic Medical Clinic)

12. Coffee table literature. She’s visually titillated by the same sights as you – make sure it’s high-brow erotic: think Taschen not Razzle. (Northwestern University)

13. Find a birthday girl celebrating all the threes. This is the age where a woman reaches her sexual zenith thanks to peaking libido and experience.(Kinsey Institute)


14. Kivin method: put two fingers either side of the clitoris, sweeping your tongue back and forth while applying pressure to her perineum. (sex therapist Dr Patti Britton)

15. Massage oil with primrose oil and vitamins C and E will increase her sexual desire and the frequency of orgasms. (Journal of Sex and Marital Therapy)

16. Gentle biting brings blood to the skin’s surface making you more sensitive to touch, meaning you both come more quickly. (sex author Siski Green)

17. For better orgasms, have sex doggy style. The intensity is 18% stronger in this position as it directly stimulates the frenulum. (Kinsey Institute)

18. The Coital Alignment Technique allows simultaneous orgasms. Lift yourself up so the base of your penis makes contact with her clitoris. (Dr Pam Spurr)

19. 6 out of 10 women are keen to try something new but are afraid to speak up. If she’s looking into your eyes she wants you to take control. (Dr Yvonne Fulbright)
