Guys, This Beer Claims to Make You Better in the Bedroom

With the proliferation of 50 Shades of Grey-inspired products, we can’t blame you for feeling 50 shades of apathy rather than 50 shades of excited.

You can buy Grey-based stuffed bears, bottles of Petite Sirah and spoof cookbooks. And men, there’s one product you might be tempted to seek out—right after you buy those Grey-licensed handcuffs. It’s a beer that claims to give you a boost in the bedroom. (But if you want other options, check out these 24 Best Supplements for Your Penis!)

Innis & Gunn, a Scottish brewery known for delicious beers like their Toasted Oak IPA and Rum Aged, now bottles a “performance enhancing” pale ale called “50 Shades of Green.” This limited-edition beer boasts 50 different types of hops from around the world which, we’ve got to admit, sounds pretty darn delicious. But what about the bedroom claims? The company uses ginseng, ginkgo biloba and damiana to achieve a playtime trifecta: increased sexual desire, blood flow and nerve stimulation.

Just don’t count on a pint to increase your pleasure. A recent study published in the journal Phytotherapy Research found “little evidence” to support claims that ginseng acts as an aphrodisiac and male performance enhancer. Even if the ginseng did have an effect, it would have to be pretty strong to counter the actual alcohol in the beer. And at the steep price of £33 per 330mL (that’s less liquid than you’ll find in a can of Coke), the name “50 Shades of Green” feels more like a description of the price than the beer itself.

And as it turns out, a healthy diet is and foods you eat are importent for your health, staimina and testosterone. Don’t miss the 50 BEST FOODS FOR YOUR PENIS.
