Plenty of studies praise vegetarianism for its health benefits and there's no doubt that the chorus for people to abandon slaughtering billions of animals this year will grow louder. However, there has been little to no research done on what happens to a vegetarian's sex life once they take up the lifestyle.
A company in the meat industry has dutifully stepped in, taken the reins of this information void and produced the results that everyone has been dying to know. The good people at Gourmet Meat Club have revealed that, lo and behold, carnivores have more sex than vegetarians.

No one knows if that means they have better sex than veggies, but apparently they're getting nasty between the sheets a lot more. Roughly 46 percent of those who eat meat get down and dirty one or more times a week, however that figure drops to just 16 percent for vegetarians.
The Welsh apparently top the list of meat eaters, with nearly half those surveyed reporting at least one romp session a week. The English are on 46 percent and the Scots are on about 40 percent.
Professor Walter Ogana thinks he's cracked the code on the revelation, writing on Twitter: "Meat turns you into the animal you're eating. The animal propensities or lower powers are magnified above reason.
"The lesser the power of reason, the more debased humanity becomes.
"Thus more sexual activities, murders, revelry among other vices."
Guys, if we all stop eating meat then we can kiss crime goodbye and finally live in that utopia we've all been hunting for.
I wonder whether this applies to couples where one is a meat eater and the other is vegan or vegetarian. Does that mean one person is cheating? We need answers, Gourmet Meat Club!
But if you're wondering which is better, sex life or health, then we have you covered. Those who eat a mostly plant-based diet cut their risk of heart failure by a whopping 42 percent, according to Icahn School of Medicine in New York.
Internal medicine resident Dr Lara told the Daily Mail: "Eating a diet mostly of dark green, leafy plants, fruits, beans, whole grains and fish, while limiting processed meats, saturated fats, trans fats, refined carbohydrates and foods high in added sugars is a heart-healthy lifestyle and may specifically help prevent heart failure if you don't already have it."
While it's good to see this lifestyle can lead to a decreased risk of heart failure, there are some issues that can arise when it's poorly organised. Not realising what foods have essential vitamins and nutrients can lead to platelet disorders.
It's always worth knowing exactly what you're putting in your gob so you know the benefits and risks to your health.
