Swimming in Cold Sea Water Can Increase Libido!

The suggestion of a taking a cold shower to cool down amorous intentions might stimulate images of hot-headed young men trying to quell unwanted urges, but research tells a different story.

One study involved individuals taking daily cold baths and being monitored for changes. Results revealed increased production of testosterone and oestrogen in men and women respectively.

In addition to enhancing libido in both sexes, these hormones also play an important role in fertility. Male testicles are outside of the body for a reason - it's cooler than the core body temperature - and in fact, one technique recommened for men looking to fatherhood was to bathe their testicles in cold water every day.


Whatever your procreative desires, a dip of a different sort certainly could add an edge to your sex life!
