More in News of the Obvious.

I love science and learning how stuff works.

But sometimes, I am surprised that certain questions had not been asked sooner.

Red wine increases the female sex drive

This fell into the realm of duh. After all, hasn’t this been the male philosophy for several millenia?

The study, itself followed nearly 800 Italian women aged 18-50 (when apparently sex ends)

Women who drank one or two glasses of wine each day were more likely to be more sexually active and more likely to lower inhibitions.

Which once again says, duh to me.

Unfortunately the articles regarding the study are unclear. Were the women offeredanything other than red wine? How did women who drank other things fare?

Still, the story inevitably reinforces the stereotypes of virtually every man I know. So for that I was a little disappointed.
