6 Surprising Foods to Avoid Before Having Sex


When you are going out on a date, most men want to think about having sex just after having dinner. I think that is a common thing to do since sex is usually a very acceptable deed when done with your partner.

That being said, there are some foods that you shouldn’t eat during dinnertime to avoid any sexual blunders. Today, I am going to be talking about some surprising foods that you need to avoid before having coitus.

But before that, I would just like to mention the value of male enhancement supplements. These should be taken hours before having sex to ensure that your penis will get prolonged erections and provide you with the energy to even do the deed. With that having said, let’s get on with the article.

French Fries

Potatoes contain starch and carbohydrates which should give your body some energy. Unfortunately, French fries should not be consumed hours before having sex not because of the fact that it is made of potatoes, but because of the fact that they are usually cooked in fatty oils.

Plus, most fastfood establishments would often add too much salt to their fries that may contribute to an increase in one’s blood pressure (something that you do not want to happen if you have a history of hypertension).

Hot Dogs

Sure, they are easy to get and are usually coupled with some French fries on the side, but munching on wieners should not be done shortly before coitus. Hot dogs usually contain a lot of saturated fat which, when consumed in large quantities, can result in clogged up arteries. What does this mean for men? Well, you could potentially be at risk of erectile dysfunction and cardiovascular disease. Instead of hot dogs, opt for fish tacos instead.


Bad breath can certainly turn your partner off, especially when you are about to kiss each other. Chewing some peppermint gum may not be ideal simply because the act of chewing, itself, can cause belching.

If you absolutely want to have a fresher breath, you can drink some peppermint tea as you would receive the same benefits sans the gaseous state.


Estrogen is a predominantly female hormone that also exists in men, albeit in trace amounts. Increased estrogen levels in men can have harmful effects and may lead to a much lower libido.

Therefore, you should limit your consumption of tofu as this plant-based protein contains phytoestrogens which can elevate estrogen levels in men.


Don’t get me wrong, oatmeal is good for you. However, it may not be the best food to eat just hours before sex. Its rich fiber content coupled with the other foods that you may have consumed during the day can lead to a very unpleasant belching feeling. If anything, just consume oatmeal during breakfast and not before sex.

Energy Drinks

As much as you want to have all of the energy that you can get, I highly advise you to avoid energy drinks. Not only are they carbonated (which can result in you passing gas during sex) but it is also high in sugar which is not ideal for your health.
