A Turkish study suggests a connection between flossing your teeth and your sex life.

The study found that men in their 30s with severe periodontal disease are more than three times as likely to suffer from erectile problems than those with healthy gums.

Fifty-three percent of the men interviewed with erectile dysfunction had inflamed gums compared to 23 percent of those without signs of gum disease, the study found.

Some doctors disagree with the study and say erectile dysfunction is caused by multiple factors.

Although the study says there is not a direct cause-and-effect between the two, it does claim there is a definite correlation.
