Men have long tried to seduce women by plying them with alcohol. A new study suggests men might have better luck if they buy them a double espresso instead. Researchers at Southwestern University found that when they gave 108 female rats a big jolt of caffeine, they became very receptive to the overtures of male rats. Scientists aren't sure why, but believe that caffeine stimulates a region of the brain involved with sexual motivation. One caveat: Since rats generally don't drink cappuccino, they'd never had caffeine before, so it's possible that the Viagra effect would not be as powerful among women who drink coffee every day. "In humans," psychologist Fay Guarraci tells Livescience.com, "it might enhance the sexual experience only among people who are not habitual users"
1. Surely some of you don't drink caffeinated products. Have you noticed any increased horniness when you have a coke/coffee now and then?
2. Where's the best location to test this caffeine theory out on the fairer sex?
3. As a coffee afficianado, I have to say, is there anything caffeine can't do?
