Will Going Vegan Really Fix Your Sex Life

Veganuary is nearly over, but many people are debating whether making the switch to the vegan life is one that they should make permanently. If you love animals and hate to see them suffering, it might just be for you. If you want to save the planet, it’s a move you may want to consider making. If you want a better sex life, this is what you need to do. Wait… what?

The latest claim from PETA is that the vegan lifestyle is going to help fix your sex life. They released a video suggesting that vegans might have bigger penis. At least, that’s what the video implied. But is it accurate?

What is veganism?

You’ll like have heard a great deal about the subject this month, but if you are at all unsure of what it is, I’m here to help you. It can be fairly confusing, because people can confuse the term with vegetarianism. According to The Vegan Society website:

“Veganism is a way of living which seeks to exclude, as far as is possible and practicable, all forms of exploitation of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing or any other purpose”.

Essentially, a plant-based diet is the way to go. Meat, dairy, eggs, and honey are all no-gos for them. Animal products like leather are not okay, nor is anything tested on animals. It’s a strict diet and lifestyle, though it is one that many people find suits them well. They feel that it benefits them and their morals, so why wouldn’t they try it?

The theory is that caring for the environment and animals are key reasons to follow veganism

PETA wants you

Many animal rights charities are eager to get people on the vegan train. They want to try and ensure that animal exploitation becomes a thing of the past and that we stop relying on them. They have provided tons of alternative foods for us to enjoy, and many big brands are getting involved. In fact, plenty of restaurants now have menus for anyone practising veganism.

The latest to get involved is PETA. PETA stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, and they are the largest animal rights organisation in the world. They are eager for people to make a stand and are trying all kinds of things to get people to change their lifestyles.

One of those things in the latest campaign. They put up a tweet, which you can see below. At the time of writing this blog, the video has been viewed a whopping 3.25 million times! It also has 15,000 retweets. But why is it causing such a stir? You might want to watch for yourself.


Are the claims false?

In the past, PETA have stated that “the consumption of animal-derived foods has long been linked to artery blockages that cause inadequate functioning of not only a man’s heart but also his vital organs”. They went on to say that veganism can help to “scrub the plaque off arterial walls and get blood flowing”. Essentially, they are suggesting that being a vegan will help with your sex life by maintaining erections for longer.

As you might have guessed, people aren’t happy with it. Many have highlighted that there is no scientific evidence to link veganism with lasting longer in bed or an increase in sexual pleasure. But that isn’t the only reason people have problems with the advert.

Right at the top of the advert we are told that “traditional” masculinity is dead. How do they choose to show this? With large vegetable cocks and people thrusting wildly. They are telling us that masculinity is defined by your sexual stamina and the size of your penis. Given that we recently had the Gillette advert challenging our views on masculinity, this feels a bit like a slap in the face.


How to fix your sex life

If you are struggling with one of the common sex problems, it is possible to fix it or at least improve things. However, adopting the vegan lifestyle isn’t going to magically give you a bigger penis as the advert suggests.

What do you think about the advert? Do you think it will get the point across, or is it simply drawing the wrong kind of attention to PETA? Let us know what you think by leaving a comment in the box below.
