CoupleSmoking is that one inglorious thing that will kill your sex life before it kills you. The after-effects of smoking are not only confined to the lungs. It can have as damaging an effect on the lower half your body. Smoking is now considered to be one of the leading culprits in causing impotency and conditions like erectile dysfunction.

Here's how smoking can ruin your sex life:

1) Smoking inhibits adequate flow of blood to the male genitalia, leading to less and not-so-firm erections.

2) Also, smoking drastically reduces sperm quality, which can lead to abnormalities and birth defects in your offspring.

3) Smoking also increases the concentration of carbon monoxide in blood, which inhibits the production of testosterone and disrupts hormone levels, which eventually results in low libido in men.

So, make your choice, but choose wisely or you may regret it the next time you get into bed.
