You need to make up for all of those calories you just burned off, right?

Pizza may not be one of the foods scientifically proven to boost your sex drive, but it’s a favorite among those who have already done the deed, says a Yelp survey. When the website asked 2,000 single millennials about their favorite post-sex activities, most preferred to chow down on pizza. Tacos came in “a distant second,” according to the press release.

This Is the Best Time to Have Sex (Hint: It’s Not at Night)

To increase the likelihood of a second hook-up—or maybe even a first date—you need to like pizza, ice cream, pasta, and/or tacos.

However, there’s one catch: Only one in three survey participants would actually share a meal with their sexual partner after a one-night stand, and they would prefer casual takeout or delivery over a formal restaurant date. As for the most serious turn-off? If the other person was a loud or open-mouthed chewer, their relationship potential went out the window.  In fact, participants found loud chewing more repulsive than other bad habits like “gorging” on junk food or drinking too much alcohol.

The Real Reason Some People Hate the Sound of Chewing

The overall takeaway is clear: To improve your sex life in a day, go ahead and order that pizza. Just make sure you close your mouth when you chew.
