Infographic: When A Smoker Quits

Posted On: July 11, 2016

As a sexologist, I won’t be doing you justice if I didn’t mention the effects of smoking on your sexual health.
Because smoking can cause vascular disease and inhibit circulation, this means proper circulation to all areas of the body, including the genitals, would be affected.
And… blood circulation is important to:
    • Achieve and maintain an erection. Men who smoke are about twice as likely to develop ED than nonsmokers
    • Feel clitoral pleasure and G-spot orgasm
    • Have orgasm quality (stronger/ longer)
These are long-term effects and they come upon so gradually that most people don’t notice it. It is only when they quit smoking and start to enjoy sex more fully again, that they realize how much smoking was inhibiting sexual pleasure.
Don’t tell me I didn’t tell you. I just did!
