A man with a sparking smile can certainly lure the ladies, but a gentlemen wishing to maintain his sex life should hold on to his toothbrush, according to a new study, published in the Journal of Sexual Medicine, that finds a correlation between gum disease and erectile dysfunction. Researchers at the University of Malatya in Turkey looked at 160 men, ages 30 to 40 years old, half of whom had erectile dysfunction. Among the impotent men, 53 percent also were found to have inflamed gums, compared with 23 percent in the control group. The average age of men in this study was under 36.
