Turns out chewing gum before sex is NOT a good idea

funny shit 29/05/2017

You meet a girl in a bar. Chats good. You’re getting the thirsty eyes. Next thing you know she says she wants to ‘get out of here’”, you take her back to yours, put some XX or some Rüfüs on, slide a cheeky stick of gum into your mouth and take her to the bedroom.

Standard?

Turns out there could well be a real mood…stinker, in that course of action.

Ever feel a little more farty than usua; after a night out? Keep blaming it on the beersies? Mate, have we got news for you. A new study has found that it’s the very thing you use to counter stinky breath, that’s causing a different kind of stink under the sheets.  

New York Post explains:

The act of chewing, without swallowing, can lead to bloating as you swallow air.

Also, your tummy will think there’s food coming and will release stomach enzymes used to digest food, which can lead to gastric problems.

I.e. Sharting.

And ripping stinkers isn’t the only problem gum poses in the bedroom. Peppermint is also known to repress testosterone, making for a lower libido, and a shit performance in the bedroom.

So what have we learned today, team?

When you're on the prowl, steer clear of gum or gum chewers. And if you’re feeling like the 12 beers, the drive-home cheeseburger, and the tactical vom you did in the parking lot before you got into the club are going to leave a bad taste in her mouth, don't go for the gum. stick to the spearmint flavoured mints.
