A new study on erectile dysfunction suggests that a few cups of coffee a day keeps a flaccid penis away.
The study, conducted by University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, found that caffeine can reduce the likelihood of having erectile dysfunction pills (ED), especially in overweight men, Men’s Health reports.
Men over the age of 20 who consumed the same amount of caffeine as in two to three cups of coffee a day were less likely to report ED issues than men who didn’t consume caffeine. The connection between caffeine and erectile dysfunction in overweight men was most apparent, according to study author Dr. David Lopez.

It turns out that caffeine has properties that are similar to erectile dysfunction drugs like Viagra, study co-author Run Wang explained. Caffeine actually has an effect on the body that causes the arteries in the penis to relax while increasing blood flow.
While many of us may know caffeine as a vasoconstrictor, meaning it narrows the blood vessels in the body, caffeine actually has minimal vasoconstrictive properties, according to LiveScience. Caffeine also increases blood flow to the skin and extremities, the results of which may result in a healthy and strong erection.
Dr. Lopez plans to dive further into more tests on caffeine/ED link on different weight groups.
Now every time you drink coffee, raise your cup to having a strong, trustworthy penis.
