How to Spice Up Your Love Life With Aphrodisiac Foods
Looking to spice up your love life? Try one of these aphrodisiac foods! They're believed to increase desire and sexual stamina. It'll be love at first bite! Oysters Not only do oysters look like vajayjays, which some consider a turn-on, they're also full of zinc (important in sperm production) and the amino acid derivatives D-aspartic acid and N-methyl-D-aspartate, which have been shown to increase libido in rats. Whatever the reason, oysters top the list of sexy foods. Rumor has it Casanova used to down 50 a day for breakfast. If reputation is any indication, they worked for him! Figs This delish little fruit is high in amino acids, which increases libido. Figs can also improve sexual stamina, so if you've got a partner who regularly doles out 60 seconds (or less) of heaven, you may want to pick some up! Bananas We don't have to spell out for you what part of the male anatomy bananas look like. But they're not only phallic, bananas are high in potassium and B vitamins, which increase energy and testosterone levels; both of which you need to spice up your love life and be up for a roll in the hay. Chocolate Not only does it taste incredibly good, but chocolate has phenylethylamine and serotonin in it, two chemicals that stimulate the pleasure centers in the brain. In other words, eating chocolate makes you happy. And happy people want more sex. It's true, depression is a libido-killer. Honey There are a few theories out there as to why the period after you get married is called a "honeymoon." Many believe the term comes from an old northern European custom in which newlyweds would drink a cup of mead (honey brew) for an entire month after they got married to increase their sexual prowess. These days we know honey contains B vitamins (vital in sperm production) and boron (which regulates estrogen). So maybe those old Europeans were on to something! Pine Nuts Pine nuts are high in zinc, which is important in sperm production. In fact, in medieval times they used to make love potions out of these puppies. See, you always knew your homemade pesto was orgasmically good!
