meat and your sex drive...

Has anyone heard the ridiculous claim that people who don't eat meat have a lower sex drive than those who do eat meat because there's something in meat that revs up the ol' sex drive?  I've heard this one a couple times and it makes me so angry!  >:(  Like people need meat to be "normal" or something.  Argh!

Interesting thread.

I haven't noticed food having any effect whatsoever on my sex drive. I doubt anything could dampen it, lol.

And maybe I'm just not as sensitive as others ... but I have never noticed a meat or dairy eater to taste or smell any different than a vegetarian or vegan. Unless, of course, you kiss right after they eat steak. But, then, that's a little different.

Some of you must have really sensitive tastebuds and sense of smells! I can see how semen would taste differently. But, scent or kissing - I personally can't decipher based on that alone if a person is vegan or eats dairy or meat.

I think it would be interesting to do one of those double blind studies on this. Get a random sample of vegans, a random sample of vegetarians, a random sample of meat-eaters, and a random sample of "testers" who would kiss the subjects and determine what category they fit in. Could be fun.  ;D

I guess skin chemistry is affected by a lot of factors. I had a student at one point who was from Haiti. My student gave me a bottle of Axe perfume because I had liked it on him, to give to my husband. My husband put it on and it smelled totally different. I told Alix (my student) that he must have made a mistake and he lauged. "No, honey--it's just that your husband is white!"

So it's not just about what we eat or the laundry soap we use, I guess. Wild universe, innit!  :D

yes, i think that is a big case. perhaps my veggie loves just have better hygiene or i remember better because they were the more recent ones. i do find vegans sexier than the average omni, though, and i know a lot of it is mental. it can be really easy to get friendly with someone when you know you have some important politics in line. none of that "well if this does get serious what will i do?" dating other vegans, i can be like, oh, no worries, nothing is changing between my place and his/her place. no worrying about what to eat, about the toothpaste, nothing really.

i've also noticed veggies don't get that foul morning breath. ohhhh that's nice.

Oh gosh, I definitely have the horrible morning breath! I'm like a dragon and MUST brush my teeth before doing anything.

Of course, I also love to put LOTS of garlic on everything I eat.

well, i didn't say it was pleasant--like minty fresh but it does seem to not have that defiant 'yucky funky" to it. perhaps i am imagining these things. but i do remember waking up the day after eating a mass amount of garlic. no amount of toothpaste in the world can ward that one off

This is so important to do. And the study should test other things you mentioned too, not just kissing... really the full range of possibilities.

I hate to sound like a martyr, but because of its political importance to vegan communities, the world at large, and also the basic advancement of human knowledge, I would be willing to volunteer as a tester in the study.  :)

Baking soda, table salt, or--much tastier--chew a couple of grains of coffee. A cuppa joe won't do it--you need the whole bean or a pinch of the ground-up raw stuff.

It's mostly overflowing with your, arrogant, rich kids who think they own the world becasue they go to U of M. I really dislike the campus kids! And unfortunatly, while ann Arbor seems really liberal it's actually very conserative...it's ust not like what it used to be  :-\ but that's OK, beause I still love A2.

Ahh That sucks that I missed you! Let me know the next time you are in Michigan and I'll make it out to one of your shows!!! You guys should come to A2 and play at some of the awesome venues up here! There's always the infamous Blind Pig, it's kind of a hole, but a lot of famouse bands have come through there!

:-\ I was just a "campus kid" there not very long ago! They're not all bad -- just a lot of them  :)

Yeah...I'm sure this is one of those cases where were really going to have look hard to find volunteers! OK...I'm in too!  ;)

Sorry...I'm going to trump you on this one, as a true "townie" of A2 it is not only my privilage but my duty (*tee hee hee* dooo-dee!) to inform the world of the little horrors that are U of M kids! My roommate just got in their nursing school and when he came home with his student ID I told him that he now officially had his pass that allowed him to be an a**hole! He (as a loyal Ann Arborite) agreed!

Sorry Peachplum, I'm sure your a great person now, but you my always carry the stigma that U of M left on you...may your soul be saved!!! :P

;D Now all we need to find is a researcher willing to do the study!

It shouldn't be too hard. After all, this is clearly a very important study concerning life on earth.

Well, we could just all get together and form an independent research group! And of course we will publish the results and make a tidy profit for our pleasures...I mean reseach...yeah..that's what i meant...And i vote the profits go toward the "stop fast food" campaign that's happening on another thread!

i am a researcher! let's do this thing.

now we need to find some omni's willing to take one for the team. however, we'll have to find some other veg*ns (or at least people with no pic) because all you sexy volunteers will know each other! bias!!

I haven't posted in this thread yet, or read all the entries, but I have to say that when I went from omni to vegan, and then from vegan to vegetarian and back again, I consistently noticed that when I was vegan I had a better sex drive, and more stamina.
I also noticed that vegans taste and smell better.  The actually noticed a change when a vegan I was dating went vegetarian, though I don't believe it was totally horrible, just different, and not as good.

Sign me up for this study too Professor!  ???
