Sex appeal and romance are two things which go hand in hand in any successful relationship — if you expect your lady to go that extra mile, you have to be willing to do the same for her. The difference between a good relationship and a stale one is the same as between good and bad sex, namely — effort, intrigue, and excitement.
If you have all three, things are golden; if you don’t, things are brass and darkening fast. While talking to you partner (and not just for foreplay) is an essential part of making sure you make a good thing last, you still have to find a way to spice things up every once in a while, and nothing does that quite like a top aphrodisiac food.
Our Sexy Menu
Take a look at our menu, then, as we serve up fifteen of the best aphrodisiac foods for getting the spark going between you and your flame.
No. 1 – Almonds
We’ve all enjoyed an Almond Joy now and again—unless you’re allergic, of course — but that term can take on a whole new meaning when considering almonds as aphrodisiacs.
From ancient times, this has been considered a quick and easy way to turn people on (not to mention one featured in prose and poetry) and with trace amounts of vitamin E and magnesium, there may well be something to that, as both of these can help to improve your love-making ability.
No. 2 – Asparagus
Described by Nicholas Culpepper as being a food which “stirs up lust,” asparagus is yet another old favorite for those looking for a natural aphrodisiac.
Like almonds, it’s full of vitamins, and as it’s said to potentially stimulate histamine production, there could well be some truth to Mr. Culpepper’s claims, as histamine production is necessary to achieve amazing climax.
No. 3 – Avocados
These are an absolute must in Southern California. We know how to keep cool in sunny LA, and avocados are a staple of many Angelinos’ diets.
Add to that high amounts of vitamin B-6, connection to the past — to the Aztecs this time — and the fact that a pair of avocados hanging on the tree have an understandably-phallic look to them, and you have the perfect recipe to serve your date up a true California treat.
BTW: I bet that you will find these tips for your lovemaking really interesting. You can implement most of them even tonight!
No. 4 – Bananas
It should be pretty obvious why this is one of the oldest sex-friendly foods out there, right?
This one’s also high in vitamin B and magnesium, both important for male sexuality.
Oh, and the shape might have something to do with it too, don’t you think?
No. 5 – Cacao
Whether its cacao beans, hot cocoa, or that favorite product of cacao, chocolate, the pleasure-giving possibilities here should be relatively obvious.
No. 6 – Celery
Other than the fact that the shape of this vegetable might just have something to do with its status as an aphrodisiac, studies have shown that it can increase the amount of androsterone, which is naturally produced by our body to attract females.
(Also, if your partner’s a Doctor Who fan, she might just find this one exciting for an entirely-different reason…so keep a handle on your sonic screwdriver there.)
No. 7 – Figs
Why figs? For starters, we have another connection to the past—this time it’s to the Bible itself, as figs feature throughout the Old and New Testaments, including fig leaves with Adam and Eve (always good for a little temptation).
On top of that, this is another vitamin-rich food, and in the same way a banana might resemble a certain male organ, there’s something about a fig which has just always gotten people thinking about the female intimate parts…
FYI: If you want rather to try some artificial libido boosters, then you should consider to get them in one of these online adult stores.
No. 8 – Garlic
Bad for your breath? Yes.
Good for your blood flow, and longer-lasting and bigger erections as a result? Yes.
So remember to buy some mouthwash too!
No. 9 – Goji Berries
If you’re looking for an aphrodisiac power package, these berries have it all—vitamins B and E, antioxidants, and they also work as natural adrenal stimulants as well.
No. 10 – Ginseng
Ginseng’s name has an original meaning of “man root,” and if that weren’t suggestive enough, it’s been shown to increase sexual response in many tests.
No. 11 – Hot Chili
The fastest way to a man’s heart is through his stomach, but if you’re looking to spice things up with your partner, you’ll probably want to give some hot chili a try. The beauty of using this as an aphrodisiac food is in the fact that it works on so many levels.
Women love men who can cook, and preparing some hot meals really isn’t all that hard to do (with apologies to chili aficionados out there — a quality chili can be pretty tricky to pull off, but even some store-bought stuff will do the trick here).
Whether it’s homemade or store-bought, you’ll be serving up a spicy meal for your partner, and the effort and gallantry you put into that is already bound to impress her and make her feel hornier.
Add to that the natural aphrodisiac powers of hot chili, and you can count on things getting very “hot” indeed.
Do not forget to check out even these great sources of aphrodisiacs:
No. 12 – Oysters
Nothing beats a classic!
Not only do oysters boost your libido and sperm count, but served with some wine and classical music in the background can make for a classy night with quite a grand finale.
No. 13 – Pomegranates
Those familiar with their Greek mythology will know this is yet another one of those aphrodisiac foods which trace back to antiquity.
(That being said, guys, be cool and don’t drag your date down to the underworld with you against her will…kind of a mood-killer, not to mention the fact it’s just wrong.)
Add some antioxidants into the mix, and you’re good to go.
No. 14 – Salmon
This is yet another dish that can let you put on something of a culinary show for your partner to show how much you care, adding to the sex appeal in more ways than one.
Add in the fact that this is high in omega-3 fatty acids, which are good for hormone production, and you’ve got the catch of the day.
No. 15 – Walnuts, Pumpkin, & Flax Seeds
Last but not least, these are very easy to add to your daily menu.
As with the salmon, this is all about how you present these foods, putting on a bit of a display and, of course, those all-important omega-3 fatty acids to help keep things stimulating and satisfying.
