An apple a day means more fun when you play, according to a new study.

Researchers have found that eating apples can result in better sex for women.

The report said that the "daily apple use is associated with higher FSFI (Female Sexual Function Index) scores in sexually active female patients, thus increasing their lubrication and overall sexual function", reported Mirror.

The study, published in the Archives of Gynecology and Obstetricsanalysed 731 healthy Italian women between the ages of 18 and 43, reported Mail Online.

So why apples? 

Apparently, the fruit contain phloridzin, which is structurally similar to a female sex hormone that plays a big part in vaginal lubrication and female sexuality, reported Huffington Post.
