As sexual beings, we are always looking for ways to better our experiences. So why not kill two birds with one stone by having better sex and eating healthy at the same time?! A healthy diet can be directly correlated to a healthy sex life. Additionally, if you want good sex, take care of your heart via exercise and good nutrition. Many foods are not only historically considered to be aphrodisiacs, but have modern-day science backing up their claims as well. Here are a few that are known to provide for better ventures in the bedroom.
It isn’t always the ingredients that make a food an aphrodisiac. This is the case of the avocado. It’s shape brings to mind either male genitalia or the curves of a woman’s body. Its smooth, creamy texture adds to its sensuality. I was skeptical at first but many resources back my findings here.
Asparagus, with its phallic shape, also meets the visual requirements of an aphrodisiac. However, in addition to that, asparagus stimulates the urinary tract giving one a feeling similar to that of the Spanish Fly (beetle that is both a strong aphrodisiac and powerful toxin). The only negative with asparagus is the affect it has on the smell of your urine. Ever noticed that?
Ginger thins the blood, which may help your body respond more quickly to sexual stimulation. Ginger also aids digestion, which can be helpful to maintaining libido if you just stuffed your belly to capacity at dinner. I am a big fan of ginger myself. It is a very versatile food that can be prepared in many ways.
Personally, I have never put an oyster in my mouth and doubt I ever will. However, I know a plethora of people that absolutely love them! The sensual experience of eating an oyster is part of its aphrodisiac powers. Oysters also contain a high zinc content, which is proven to boost libido. There seems to be something to the feel of oysters in one’s mouth that is genuinely arousing. Am I missing out on something here?
Some describe cocoa as the “true love drug”. Cocoa stimulates production of the “feel good” hormones: serotonin and dopamine. Cocoa also contains phenylethylamine (PEA) which is produced by the brain in large quantities when we’re falling in love. Cocoa’s most popular application is when made into chocolate. Chocolate melts easily and sensually in your mouth further appealing to its sensual nature. I have witnessed chocolate’s addictive nature and the absolute bliss it brings to people.
Other foods that offer sexual benefits include: Celery, Peaches, Blueberries, Liver, Almonds and Maca Powder, Arugula and Strawberries.
