Ducks can dampen her drive

Midweek Sport - - NEWS -

HERE’S a strange tip to keep your mis­sus horny and gag­ging for sex... stop her play­ing with RUB­BER DUCKS.

Be­cause the cute lit­tle bath toys can kill a woman’s sex drive, re­search shows.

Chem­i­cals used in plas­tics to make them bendy have been found to make women less up for it.

Ph­tha­lates – used in items such as rub­ber ducks, rain­coats and shower cur­tains – are known to af­fect men’s abil­ity to get it on.

Now the link has been made in women in a study by Univer­sity of Rochester School of Medicine, in New York.

But it’s not just rub­ber ducks. Pro­cessed and fast food also con­tain the de­siredamp­en­ing chem­i­cals.

Those with the most ph­tha­lates were two-and-a-half times as likely to have low libido as those with the least.

Th­ese chem­i­cals are not bound to the plas­tics they are added to, so they are con­tin­u­ously re­leased into the air or food or liq­uid.
