Sexy Foods And Why You Should Start Incorporating Them Into Your Love Life Now!
Sometimes there’s nothing sexier than a big bowl of ice cream, but did you know that certain foods can actually trigger responses in the human body? They’re called aphrodisiacs, named after the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite.
There’s no proof that these foods instantly create sexual desire, but it’s thought the foods encourage it by doing such things as increased body temperature and heart rate.
With the cold weather coming to most of the Western world right now, here are a list of foods that you can use to warm yourself up (in more ways than one)!
There’s no proof that chocolate is an aphrodisiac from the ingredients, but the feeling it gives you can certainly work. The richness of the food can stimulate the libido and the chemical phenylethylamine can create excitement and general well-being, which can help turn you on.
So don’t feel guilty about eating that leftover Halloween chocolate! It’s an important part of your sexual health!
Figs have been considered an aphrodisiac for centuries. Scientists believe it’s because they have a high concentration of antioxidants, flavonoids, and polyphenols. These chemicals increase relaxation and well-being, which are two things you need to feel in order to get in the mood.
Instead of chips for your next romantic movie night, bring some figs instead! The odd look will be worth it!
The legendary lover, Casanova, would eat raw oysters every morning to maintain his stamina. He likely didn’t know that Oysters have a lot of zinc, which helps produce testosterone, sperm production, and immune function.
The next time you head out for a fancy dinner with that special someone, why not encourage your passion and splurge on these succulent sea creatures?
Spicy Chilli Peppers
Chili peppers have capsaicin, an oil-like substance that tingles the nerve endings on the tongue. This tingling releases adrenaline and endorphins, which encourages sexual desire to grow.
If you can handle the heat, add some chilis to your next snack with your partner and watch the heat rise.
More an aphrodisiac due to its association with love and sex, strawberries are also high in vitamin C. This vitamin helps with blood flow, so even if it isn’t the strawberry itself that starts the sexy times, it will help keep it going.
And strawberries are delicious!
As well as tasting great, watermelon is rich in the amino acid citrulline, which relaxes and dilates blood vessels, just like Viagra! Unfortunately, most of the citrulline is in the rind, which isn’t as tasty as the rest of the fruit.
A glass of watermelon juice might be an easy way to encourage the move from the dining room to the bedroom on your next date.
