What to eat for a better love life?
Love and food! The most desired things in this world. And why not. Even I could spend my days making love between delicious meals. Day after day… So why not to combine one pleasure with the other? Especially when there are so many foods for better sex.
Both food and sex were connected so tight since ancient times.
The word aphrodisiac itself comes from the Ancient Goddess of the Beauty, Love, and Sexual attraction – Aphrodite. As well, back in the time, people used to pay a lot more attention to the ways to boost their sexuality. It looks like they knew how to have fun better than us. After that, with the invasion of the monotheistic religions, the importance of sexual pleasure became more hidden.
Luckily, nowadays we start again to increase our knowledge of those subjects.
There are many foods for better sex that you can enjoy every day. Some of them are more popular than others. I would like to start with the naughtiest one.
Pin for later:
The Aztecs used to name the avocado tree testicle tree as the avocados grow in pairs and the shape is similar to the men’s testicles.
At the same time, the avocado is full of folic acid and vitamin B6 – both responsible for increasing the men’s hormones. Some studies say that only one avocado a day will help you to “dance” between the sheets all night. The most popular use of the avocado is in salads, on sandwiches or just like that, as a side dish with some black pepper and lemon.
One of the essential minerals your body needs to feel healthy, full of energy and naughty – all at the same time – is zinc.
The deficiency of zinc could cause loss of libido. Well, spinach is full of it. Spinach is full of 3-carbinol as well, which is responsible for lowering the producing of estrogens. Low levels of estrogens mean more testosterone. And those are a guarantee for an overwhelming sex drive. So, the choice of spinach salad with some lemon and carrots will set your mood in the right way for both of you.
If you need food that instantly talks for a night full of passion – there it is. Why is it so good as food for better sex? The chocolate increases the blood flow to all vessels, including the sexual organs. More blood – better chance for orgasm for women, and better sensitivity for both partners. The dark chocolate boosts the energy levels very high and gives the fascinating feeling of euphoria. I can bet you that just a few minutes after your mouth was full of silky chocolate heaven, you will feel ready to roll.
Try to guess if I put the strawberries intentionally right after the dark chocolate… Both of them act like a bomb to your body. What a better way to combine two of the most popular foods for better sex. The fact that the strawberries are a natural antioxidant is well known. The antioxidants help you feel young and healthy. The Vitamin C in that small red fruit increases the blood flow, and I already told you what happens to you when the blood flows all over your body. It’s time for fun.
This is one of the sexiest fruit ever.
Do you know why? The seeds of the fig are a symbol of fertility and the leaves – of the modesty. When a fig is cut in half and put in the palm of man’s hand, it reminds him of the woman’s intimate.. fruit. It was Cleopatra’s favourites food ever. Or that’s what the legends say. Anyhow, the figs are rich in fibres, antioxidants and potassium. Try them with some honey and feel free to observe them inyour palm, I know you want to…
It’s another naughty fruit from all the foods for better sex.
We’ll put aside all the images of bananas that came up in your mind, and we’ll say that the reason for its popularity doesn’t come only from the shape. It’s full of B vitamins and potassium. Potassium improves the strength, and that helps for more intensive and powerful orgasms. As I already see how you can’t wait to go to the shop, I will be short – it contains chelating minerals which enhance the men’s libido. Go now, but don’t forget to buy…
Talking for Cleopatra – the legends say that one of the Mark Anthony’s ways to set up the fire between the two of them was to offer grape to the Beauty Queen. And there’s a reason why. The grape is a natural antioxidant, has a free radical-fighting effect and has the leading role in producing wine – is there even one romantic scene in your mind that doesn’t include a glass of wine around you? Some of the researchers show that we can put the grape on the same scale with the chocolate as an aphrodisiac. Bring it on!
Pomegranate fruit and juice is proven to be one of the best foods for better sex. They increase the testosterone’s levels in both men and women. Some people even call it “natural viagra”. It lowers the high blood pressure and the stress level as well. And when you’re not so stressed, you’re more able to enjoy a better love life.
A significant source of potassium (remember that one?), Vitamin A, C and E, the cherry is one sweet temptation. Its sensible mouth juicing aroma is well known in the pleasure industry – you can buy candles, oils and condoms with a cherry flavour almost everywhere. The sweet fruit activates woman’s sexuality slightly more than the man’s. You could use it in many ways – as a dessert before the main action or as part of the game – just put some of the sweet juice around your nipples, moisten the lips, and he won’t be able to resist even a second more.
The last of the fruit’s list of foods for better sex. It’s more than 90% water, but the rest of that sweet fantasy is full with phytonutrient citrulline, which product is an amino acid – it relaxes the blood vessels and all that improves the blood flow. Check the chocolate part to see what a better blood flow could do for you in the bed.
It’s time for some seafood. The salmon is one of the best choices you could make when cooking food for better sex. It’s rich in dopamine, and that is famously linked to motivation, attention and sexual pleasure. It is a source of testosterone – the hormone of the sexual drive and desire, and phenethylamine which is boosting the feeling of bliss and happiness.
One of the most famous aphrodisiac foods ever. Giacomo Casanova – the great lover of 18th-century claims in his memoirs that had almost 50 oysters for breakfast every morning. It’s a surprise that they still exist if that was true… Anyway, the oysters are proven to be an aphrodisiac, especially if they are raw. Oysters contain amino-acid, and that increases the testosterone’s production level.
Herbs as foods for a better sex
Nobody could deny that the herbs give the taste of the food. So why not – the taste of love as well? Here is a list of herbs you may want to add to your food and will spice up your sex mood.

I know how it sounds, but despite the smell, garlic is an amazingly powerful aphrodisiac. The effect is similar to the ginger’s one. If you’re too bothered by the smell, you could cook it. Once it goes through the fire, the smell disappears.
When sprinkled on some hot chocolate, milk or coffee, cinnamon is the ultimate aphrodisiac and stays with proud in the list of foods for better sex. It has a fantastic smell, levels the blood sugar and warms up your body.

Everything spicy is an impressive part of the foods for better sex. Why? Well, it makes you feel hot! Chilli peppers for examples are one of the best ways to spice up your food.

All that gives you some hot thoughts and sends your mind and body between the sheets.
Seeds and nuts as foods for better sex
Nuts are full of nitric acid, and that helps the blood vessels to relax which makes the blood flow to increase. They keep your energy levels high, and it’s believed they support stronger orgasms and increase the erection of males. Almonds, walnuts, pine nuts – everything you fancy – just have them.
From the seed family, the best choice is the chia seeds. They are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids and help to pump your blood through all of your vessels. You could sprinkle on your milk, smoothie, any breakfast or you may want to find a lovely recipe for a chia pudding (it’s easier than it sounds).
