But according to this study by The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston, Starbucks is about to be your best friend.
Research recently revealed that caffeine drastically decreases your chance of impotency.
The study mentions that "men who consumed between 85 and 170 milligrams of caffeine a day were 42 percent less likely to report erectile dysfunction, while those who drank between 171 and 303 milligrams of caffeine a day were 39 percent less likely to report ED compared to those who drank zero to seven milligrams a day."
