Really, it was only a matter of time before geriatric sex guru Dr. Ruth Westheimer came out with her own line of mood-loosening libations. Her Vin d’Amour (translation: Wine of Love) hits shelves in early July, just in time for summertime trysts. One thing, though: Ruth’s wine has half the alcohol content than most (6 percent to the typical 13), because that’s the sexually prudent way.

“I’m always saying couples should drink to relax, but not too much … if [the woman] drinks too much, she falls asleep and if [the man] drinks too much, he can’t perform,” she informs the New York Post. So sip cautiously: “Just the right amount [of alcohol] will awaken your senses and arouse you,” she promises. Bottoms (and, uh, other parts?) up!
