If there are two things I can’t live without, it’s food and sex. These two decadent necessities can be a wonderful combination. Unfortunately, they can also butt heads, and a romantic evening is certainly a terrible thing to waste.
To capitalize on a night out, consider choosing food that is not only delicious, but works in favour of your sex drive. Skip past the items that are fried, fatty, cheesy or overly rich. These meals may be comfort food, but they will do your body no favours when it’s time to get down to business.
Food can definitely be orgasmic, but in an ideal world, the climax of the evening should be an actual climax. The right selection of proven aphrodisiacs will get your blood flowing without holding you back.
Next time you’re looking at a menu, try these suggestions out and feed your libido.
Oysters are a classic choice for an appetizer. These delicious shellfish do it all! Not only are they incredibly light, they are also rich in zinc, which boosts testosterone and is a mineral that promotes strong sexual health. Ladies, this applies to you too.
If salad is an option, seek out one with arugula. A vibrant mix with this peppery plant is healthy and sure to enhance your sexual appetite. After all, arugula has been putting men and women in the mood for thousands of years!
For an entrée, keep it light. Too much of a feast may leave you and your partner full and sleepy, which can be frustrating after making an effort to get in the mood. Look for lighter dishes with arousing ingredients like pumpkin, chilies, honey or ginger.
Finally, split a chocolate dessert. Chocolate is a natural aphrodisiac containing the same chemicals your body produces when falling in love. Men, if you’re not so into chocolate, strawberries and bananas are also a good dessert – it’s been said to increase the amount of ejaculate. Coffee is also great addition here to increase your blood flow and give you a little extra energy to blow off in the bedroom.
