Smoking definitely has a negative impact on your sexual performance. For years, studies have shown that smoking cigarettes causes erectile dysfunction due to poor blood flow to the penis. Not only does smoking cause impotence, but the severity of the problem is directly correlated with the number of cigarettes smoked. Also, impaired performance eventually leads to diminished desire and when these two are combined your overall satisfaction is likely to suffer. Men aren’t the only ones affected as women have adverse sexual effects from smoking as well. Besides performance, smoking also increases your chances of infertility in both men and women. If you’ve been waiting for a better reason than your health to quit smoking, then maybe a better sex life will do the trick.
