Need help convincing your significant other that you must avoid sitting in coach — and instead splurge for business or first class during your travels?
Turns out that riding in coach seats too often may negatively affect travelers’ sex drives.
So says New York City endocrinologist Dr. Florence Comite. (Nope. This really isn’t a Takeoff Nap post.)
The New York Post‘s Adriana Diaz reports, “(Doctor) Comite explains the link between anxiety, claustrophobia and the lack of space and how this can deplete someone’s libido — especially if they’re sitting in cheap and cramped economy seats.”
Dr. Comite explained to Jam Press that sitting in the cramped, tight, coach cabin “drives your flight-and-fight mechanism.” (Hello, Spirit Airlines!) “So hormones that go up in the brain like norepinephrine and epinephrine will lower testosterone and that will immediately have an effect on libido and even sexual function.”
So, being too frugal could spoil that otherwise romantic getaway.
“Testosterone really is the weakest link,” the good doctor says. “Once we’re overwhelmed, once we don’t have enough sleep, jet lag, that is all going to affect the way we think. Business class, first class, will make it better.”
There we have it: sitting in business or first class actually has health benefits! (Disclaimer: I’m not a health professional. But I worked for an actor who played one on TV’s Alcoa Theatre.)
Sadly, I don’t think most health insurance plans cover business-first class airfares or upgrade buy-ups.
