Certain foods have the ability to increase sexual prowess and arouse desire. And who doesn’t want to heighten their libido? Next time you are dishing up a romantic meal for two besides the candlelight, include one of these foods in your meal preparation. You won’t be disappointed that you did!
Oysters have been known for centuries to increase sexual desire. Oysters are appealing to the eye because they are similar in shape to a woman’s genitals and they also contain high levels of the mineral zinc. Zinc plays an important role in the production of testosterone, which in turn increases the sexual appetite of not just men, but women as well. Another key point about oysters is that this seafood delicacy contains a substance called mucopolysaccharides, which helps to increase the production of seminal fluid. Seduce your lover with the tempting taste of oysters and then enjoy the results of your efforts!
There is no doubt that chocolate is a powerful aphrodisiac. But that is dark chocolate, not milk chocolate. Dark chocolate is for lovers (leave the milk chocolate to the kids). Chocolate contains something called phenylalanine, which helps tap into one of the brain’s natural aphrodisiacs and therefore, desire for sex. Theory hasn’t proven it but many researchers believe that eating chocolate brings about the same feelings in a person as does being in love. Many well-known figures throughout history (such as the famous lover of the eighteenth century, Casanova) ate their fair share of chocolate in the belief that it increased their appetite for sex and made them more skilled lovers.
The natural sugars found in honey can improve a libido and also increase levels of sexual stamina. The term “honeymoon” derived from an ancient custom indulged in by recently married couples. The couple would go into seclusion and once there, share a special honey drink. This concoction was believed to increase their sexual desire for one another and also to increase their chances of conceiving a child. They came out of seclusion after the first moon of their marriage.
