Getting Your Sexy On with Seafood

If you want to be busier in the bedroom— and more likely to conceive a child—you may want to add more fish to your diet. That’s the word from a group of Harvard researchers who enrolled 500 pairs of would-be parents in a study lasting one year. All the couples journaled their sexual activity while recording how much seafood they ate. Those who put seafood on the menu more than twice a week had sex 22% more frequently than those who dined from the sea less often. What’s more, 92% of the seafood enthusiasts were expecting a child by the year’s end, compared with 79% of the others. Writing in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism, the study team noted that the higher sexual frequency couldn’t entirely explain the association between pregnancy and seafood consumption, suggesting that improvements in fertility factors, such as improved semen or embryo quality, might be involved.
