Researchers found that couples who ate at least two portions of seafood per week had more sex and got pregnant faster than those who ate less seafood. The study followed couples who were planning to conceive until they became pregnant for up to a year. Participants recorded their intake of seafood daily in a journal. The couples who ate the largest amounts of seafood — two or more servings per week — had sex 21 percent more often.

Eat more seafood if you want to have more sex, study says
May 23, pm Updated May 24, am. Couples who eat at least two portions of seafood a week have more sex and get pregnant faster, a study found. Data on couples who were trying to conceive was analyzed by scientists from the Harvard T. Couples were 39 percent more likely to have sex on days when they had both eaten seafood, such as fish or oysters. And those who ate at least two portions a week romped an average of eight times per month, compared to just six times for those who ate less.
People Who Eat Lots of Seafood Have More Sex, Says Science
Researchers followed couples from Michigan and Texas for one year, specifically looking at how seafood intake correlated to sexual activity and pregnancy. In the end, the study found that 92 percent of these couples who ate seafood more than twice a week were pregnant after one year, compared to 79 percent among couples consuming less seafood. Importantly, the study also suggests that the couples who ate seafood more frequently also had more sexual activity. But this alone was unable to directly explain the increased rate of pregnancy.
If your sex life is feeling a bit stale , something as simple as changing what you put on your plate could turn up the heat in the bedroom. And according to new research, it could be as simple as upping the amount of seafood you eat. In a study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism , researchers analyzed US couples and found those who consumed two or more servings of seafood a week not only had a major increase in their time between the sheets—having sex more frequently—but also got pregnant easier.
