Everybody wants to have great sex. If you're not having any sex, you want it; if you're having okay sex, you want an upgrade to great and if your sex life is great, well, you want it to be mind-blowing. And it's possible. But there's more to great sex than meets the eye. And it begins in the kitchen.A number of people might wonder what simple food could i possible have around me that could enhance my sex life. Many factors can impact ones sex life for example Stress, Boredom and definitely being overweight,being overweight can certainly affect your libido. We could dig in to the science, but it’s pretty self evident, isn’t it? Eat a bag of McDonald’s and you’d probably rather lay around and think about doing it rather than actually getting up and doing it. Have a much lighter, fresher, good-for-you meal and you are more likely to want to follow through. What you’re eating can play a role in your sex life, but not just in how much of the bad stuff you’re eating. Are you getting enough of the aphrodisiac foods when it really counts?
Funny enough, the smellier the better seems to be key with these foods, with oysters, asparagus, and garlic on the list. But what the smelly and non-smelly foods on this list all share is that they’re great for you.
What makes these foods a turn on?
- Asparagus offers a lot of folic acid, which can increase histamine production which makes reaching orgasm easier for both men and women.
- Garlic is ripe with allicin, which increases that all important blood flow.
- Oysters on the half-shell are pretty sexy to eat, and the protein can certainly promote stamina. However, they also have been connected with increasing production of testosterone, which raises libido in both genders.
- Ginger gets some love in the Kama Sutra for its ability to stimulate blood flow which makes the erogenous zones much more sensitive.
- Chocolate is the go-to romance food for good reason. Cacao has PEA (phenylethylamine), the “love chemical,” which promotes dopamine production in the brain’s pleasure centers which peak at orgasm. PEA also inspires feelings of euphoria and attraction, which pair well with the tryptophan’s effects of relaxation.
- Avocado are referred to as ahuacuatl, or “the testicle tree,” by the Aztecs. With a name like that it’s got to be sexy. In fact, in the 16th century, Catholic priests in Mexico banned avocados from being eaten because of their overt sexual appearance.
- Whole grains a bowl of whole grains, like oatmeal can make you Superman (or woman) in bed. While not the stuff of fantasy, that morning bowl of oats is high in zinc and can increase testosterone, which increases sexual desire (in both men and women). And being complex carbohydrates, whole grains create staying power, so you can perform in a way that matches your passion.
- Olive oil - We need fat to produce sex hormones; not the kind that builds up around our bellies and hips, but healthy fat in our food. Here comes the sexy part. Fat and cholesterol are metabolized in the liver, stimulating the production of testosterone and estrogen, which we need for our sex drive...and performance. A healthy balance of sex hormones produces a strong libido in men and women.
Remember to order these foods if treating your love to dinner, or be sure these ingredients are on the menu before you take to the kitchen yourself. There are plenty of combinations here to cover an appetizer, meal, and dessert. Just don’t get too full!
