Sexy Foods: Top 5 Aphrodisiac Foods
Mankind has believed, since ancient times, that certain foods were able to enhance sexual performance and libido…and they may have been right. While we doubt people “discovering” the effects of these foods is going to put a dent in Pfizer Viagra sales, these sexy foods can help to boost libido and help put you and your partner in the mood for some loving. Here are the top five sexy foods that are known for their aphrodisiac effect on both men and women.
Sexy Foods - Bananas
These are not only a somewhat “phallic” symbol (which would automatically mean they had male enhancing properties in ancient times) they are also packed full of nutrients that can keep us healthy and in tip-top shape for… well… you know! One of the nutrients that give bananas the most “oomph” is the bromelain that they contain. This enzyme is known to boost male sexual performance.
Sexy Foods - Chocolate
Hmmm… think your boyfriend’s intentions are completely innocent when he brings over that heart shaped box full of delicious dark chocolates? Well, think again! No, seriously, while he may actually have no ulterior motives for bringing you chocolates, probably the reason this custom got started in the first place is because dark chocolates can be a strong aphrodisiac. They contain properties that work on our brains’ pleasure centers, which gives us a euphoric feeling, not quite unlike what is experienced at the peek of an orgasm.
Sexy Foods - Oysters
These suckers have been helping men “woo” women for ages. Besides these being very healthy for you and a great source of B vitamins and proteins, their musky smell is said to have a similar affect as pheromones, the hormones that can be passed on by scent and which can subtly attract people to one another.
Sexy Foods - Durian
This is a strange one indeed. This spiky fruit which grows in many Southeast Asian countries is most popularly known for its strong smell and taste. Many people say that it tastes like a sweet….. creamy… garlic. Not too sexy if you ask me. But those who like durian don’t just like durian… They LOVE durian! This fruit also increases body heat and has an effect on your cardiovascular system, which may improve sexual performance… that is, if you don’t mind the smell.
Sexy Foods - Champagne
This bubbly beverage is associated with jubilation and celebration, and not surprisingly… consummation. The slightly giddy feeling you get after a glass or two was known to make women especially “amorous” which is why many men would “treat” their ladies to champagne back in the day… and probably why smart men still do!
These are just a few of the sexy foods that were known to boost “affections” back in the good old days. You can still add them to your special meals today to sprinkle a little more romance to your dinner or snack. One way or the other, they are bound to give you some healthy benefits, so why not try them out?
