Do you have a Potty Mouth?
Boys with the baddest breath may have the biggest erections!
Giving your guy some mouthwash might make for a really good kiss, but later in the bedroom, it’s his erection you may miss!
Why? Well, bacteria in the mouth convert nitrates into nitrites, and when we swallow them, gastric acids convert nitrites into the essential metabolic chemical nitric oxide (N.O.). Nitric oxide can act as an antioxidant, but also the body uses it to keep arteries properly dilated. This is how Viagra works - by raising nitric oxide levels and thereby easing blood flow to the penis. So killing these important bacteria can have some significant side effects.
Maybe we don’t kill the germs, we just mask the smell?
Maybe a little gum might freshen the breath? No. After about 2 hours, mouth bacteria starts making hydrogen sulfide and methyl mercaptan (sewer gas smell)out of the gum itself. Toothpaste absorbs a little hydrogen sulfide and methyl mercaptan but only for 2 hours.Drinking green tea is a significant deodorant (it removes half of these bad breath chemicals for up to 2 hours. Clorets (shown in picture), a very popular parsley oil product does not absorb any of these stinky chemicals at any time.
Let’s talk about germ killing
Alcohol kills bacteria at a concentration of just 7%. Listerine indeed kills the bacteria that cause bad breath, but it also kills the tissues that keep your teeth in place. Listerine dries out your mouth, it creates millions of microscopic cracks and crevices for bacteria to take root. The genius of Listerine is that you have to keep using it, because it keeps creating places for bad breath bacteria to flourish.
In the human mouth,certain mouthwashes release a nasty chemical known as dioxin, which is a potent nerve agent that can cause erectile dysfunction -particularly in men on South Asian descent.
People think Listerine is one the most effective mouthwashes at killing bacteria, but, in fact, it is one of the worst mouthwashes to use! In experiments, Listerine did not kill any of the bacteria it was exposed to. Scope and Cepacol contain Cetyl pyridinium chloride, and that does suppress common mouth germs better.
