A few years ago researchers from the University of Texas Health Science Center in Houston, USA, found that men over the age of 20 who consumed the caffeine equivalent of 2 to 3 cups of coffee a day were less likely to report erectile dysfunction.

The co-author of the study, Dr Run Wang said, that caffeine had properties “similar to ED drugs like Viagra”.

However, it was noted that wouldn’t fix erection problems with men who have diabetes.

So why?

Well according to Dr Wang, caffeine triggers “a series of effects that cause the arteries in your penis to relax” which means that the blood flow to your penis increases – which is Dr Wang notes is “key to a strong erection”.
