The ‘Sexy Cocktail’ originated from wanting to incorporate a higher level of zinc into a healthy diet...when we are stressed, tired or lacking in self-confidence, the last thing we think about is sex.
Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) January 28, 2011
Dr. Debra Laino, a board certified clinical sexologist and practicing sex therapist, says the increased wear and tear on our busy schedules has taken a toll on American’s sex lives, and she sees the evidence every day in the growing number of new patients seeking her counsel to help them overcome the stress and anxiety that sap sexual desire.
Laino, who is a featured columnist in Sex Appeal magazine and is frequently heard on Playboy Radio, says the mental strife caused by higher levels of stress and lower levels of self-confidence has a direct physical connection between sexual desire and performance. When people fail to recognize or address their increased stress levels a disconnect within one’s sex life can build to the point of dysfunction, increasing the risk of habitual bad relationships and lack of intimacy.
‘Sexy Cocktails’ Can Help Restore Intimacy:
Fruits and Vegetables high in certain nutrients may help ward off more than colds, diseases and extra weight. According to Dr. Laino, energy deficiency or stress-related sexual distress can be largely improved by making conscious decisions to add certain ingredients to your existing menu. Laino recommends that sexually active adults should take measures to know what affects and decreases the anxiety that might be causing them to lose sexual drive and connection ability, both physically and emotionally.
The ‘Sexy Cocktail’ originated from wanting to incorporate a higher level of zinc into a healthy diet. Adding increased amounts of zinc not only helps with complexion but also helps with feelings of fatigue. Traditionally, when we look good, we tend to feel good. Self-confidence increases and stress levels decrease. Incidentally, when we are stressed, tired or lacking in self-confidence, the last thing we think about is sex. But perhaps most importantly, zinc increases testosterone. From a strictly physiological perspective, testosterone is responsible for sexual desire. With raised testosterone levels, combined with feeling and looking good, increased energy and lowered stress levels, both male and females stand to greatly benefit from more sexual confidence and frequency of interest and drive. Generally speaking, men need about 15 mg a day and women about 12 mgs a day to achieve these desired levels.
Higher zinc levels are delightfully enjoyable when obtained through juice concoctions, with or without alcohol. While not promoting regular alcoholic intake, Laino says that when adults choose to make themselves drinks using liquor, they can make a conscious effort to combine low calorie, high nutrient juice combos alongside organic Vodkas for an overall physiological health boost.
Some favorite high zinc ‘Sexy Cocktail’ juice combo options include:
- Fresh pomegranates and peaches
- Cucumbers and spinach, with a bit of honey or agave to sweeten if desired
- Raspberries, peach and kiwi
- Bananas, kiwi and sweet blackberries
It is suggested that these drinks be made using a juicing machine rather than a standard blender.
Laino’s latest E-book, Eleven Reasons Why Women Cheat, addresses some of the issues surrounding the lack of emotional connection and intimacy that often drive women to stray from their committed relationships. Her intimacy guide, Love for All Eternity – Guide to Intimacy, is available now through RKR Publishing.
