5 Foods that Prevent Orgasm – Do You Eat These?

You may not like what I’m about to tell you, or at least not at first . . . Because nobody likes being told don’t eat that, right?
 
But since part of my mission is helping women experience more pleasure, it is my duty to share this information with you. And if you notice a change after cutting out or reducing the following foods, then you will not only like what I’m about to say . . . you will love it!
 
So here’s the deal, ladies. There are many factors that could be getting in the way of you experiencing amazing orgasms – or any orgasms at all – but please know that there is hope for you. It is possible to experience more pleasure and move through any and all barriers to orgasm.
 
Some of those barriers may require far more than cutting out or cutting down on the following foods. There could be emotional, psychological, energetic, or musculoskeletal factors. It might have to do with technique, or lack thereof. It might have to do with feeling a sense of pressure to cum. The list goes on.
 

But for now? Let’s just look at these 5 dietary factors that could be getting in the way of you having amazing orgasms:

 

1. Coffee

The breakfast of champions! Right? Wrong. Coffee isn’t exactly a food, but I know lots of people who treat it like one: drinking coffee to get energy instead of eating a snack or a meal.
 
Some say coffee can boost a woman’s sex drive. While that’s true for some, for others it contributes to anxiety, which can negatively affect sex drive.
 
Plus, excessive caffeine is definitely a culprit when it comes to difficulty with orgasm. Why? Because it can be hard to relax when you’re all jacked up on coffee. And relaxation is essential for the proper circulation required for the optimal arousal response of engorgement and lubrication.
 

2. Fried foods

While fat is actually essential to a healthy libido and ability to orgasm, the type of fat makes all the difference.
 
And guess what? Fried foods contain the bad types of fat that lead to clogged arteries. And when your arteries are clogged, the blood flow isn’t going to be as good. And when the blood flow is impeded, orgasm is negatively affected.
 
Furthermore, vegetable oils counteract the health benefits of omega-3 fatty acids. And omega-3 fatty acids are the good fats that help you have better orgasms.
 

3. Refined sugar

Again, I would not consider refined sugar a food. I consider it more of a drug – like a sweet form of crack – since it’s highly addictive and damaging to one’s physical, mental, and emotional state in various ways.
 
I could go on about that, but let’s focus specifically on how sugar affects orgasm: sugar messes with your dopamine and serotonin balance. When serotonin spikes, as it does when eating refined sugar, it inhibits dopamine release, which can result in delayed orgasm or no orgasm at all!
 
Also, high blood sugar levels can result in vaginal dryness, which can make sex not only unpleasurable, but downright painful.

4. Tofu and Soymilk

This has to do with how soy affects a woman’s hormones. Some forms of soy are good for you, but some forms, especially in excess, are not. So you don’t have to cut out soy completely.
 
But if your orgasms are less than stellar (or you’re not even having any) and you eat a lot of soy products, see what happens when you cut down on the quantity and frequency of your soy intake. And consider switching from tofu to tempeh.
 

5. Cheese

Okay, maybe it’s not fair to single out cheese. This is really about high cholesterol and abnormally high levels of lipids in the blood.
 
Cholesterol tends to get an unfairly bad rap (some cholesterol really is good for you), so don’t fear cholesterol in general. Just know that if cholesterol levels are too high – like from eating too much cheese – that can affect not only your heart health, but it can also get in the way of sexual arousal.
 
A 2009 study reported that “Women with hyperlipidemia [abnormally elevated levels of lipids in the blood] reported significantly lower arousal, orgasm, lubrication and sexual satisfaction scores than women with normal blood lipid profiles.” In conclusion, go easy on the cheese.
 

 
Now, how is this information sitting with you? If the above items are staples in your diet, reading this could feel like a downer or trigger a stress response. A rebellious response might be, “Don’t tell me I can’t drink coffee or eat cheese!”
 
On the other hand, it could light you up with a feeling that this could help! Either way, take a moment to breathe, and digest what you’ve just read. Remember that food is not the enemy, but it can have either a positive or negative impact on your health and well-being. And every woman – every body – is different.
 
This is an invitation to experiment with your diet in order to experience more sexual pleasure. Play around with it, give it time, and see if what’s written above is true for you. If you want more tips, check out The Multi-Orgasmic Diet.
