If your partner isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t up for morning sex, donÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t take it personally: More than half of people say they would rather drink coffee than have sex, according to a new survey commissioned by Le MÃƒÂ©ridien Hotels and Resorts.
Researchers conducted the survey by calling 7,455 people from six areas around the worldÃ¢â‚¬”the United States, Dubai, China, France, Germany, and India. They found that 51 percent of respondents said they could go longer without sex than they could without coffeeÃ¢â‚¬”and 62 percent said they would ditch alcohol for the morning pick-me-up.
ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s not that people are addicted to caffeine (OK, maybe a tiny bit), but a majority of the people from the survey said that drinking coffee stimulates their creativity and helps them relax.
If you canÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t start your dayÃ¢â‚¬”let alone function for eight hours straightÃ¢â‚¬”sans a cup of joe, stick to four six-ounce cups a day (max) to reap the benefits of coffee without giving yourself the jitters. And if the liquid stuff isnÃ¢â‚¬â„¢t cutting it for you, consider whipping up one of these tasty coffee recipes instead.
