The way to a woman’s heart is just like yours – through her stomach. Forget champagne, flowers and heavy spritzes of Drakkar Noir, these five food have been labeled for millenia as aphrodisiacs – food or drink said to arouse increase one’s sexual desire, enhance performance and extend sexual energy. Not to mention, all of these foods are going to look way classier to your lady than another chicken grande burrito special.
Almonds are like a multi-vitamin of sex: High in libido enhancing and stress-reducing vitamins and minerals such as vitamin E and magnesium, as well as rich in the essential fatty acids that stimulate the production of hormones. But what really drives a woman wild about almonds is their scent – Samson was said to woo Delilah with the smell of their essential oils as well as their taste. Light some almond scented candles and munch on a few as a snack before she comes over. She may be swooning in no time.
“Yeah, garlic breath. That’s gonna make this girl’s panties melt.” Now hold on there, naysayer. The Greeks, both ancient and modern have been championing the love potion affects of this bulb for MILLENIA. They were right about geometry and they are right about garlic’s relation to sexual stamina in energy. Garlic contains the chemical allcin, which increases blood flow to the sexual organs. In other words, it’s a foodie’s Viagra. If you’re still worried about stank breath, just pick up garlic capsules at your closest vitamin dealer.
Cleopatra’s favorite food to receive from her paramours. Cutting one in half and eating a fresh, plump, juicy fig is practically a sexual experience all by itself, and poets and artists have been using figs as a symbol for female sexual organs and fertility since the Ancient Greeks. If figs aren’t readily available (they are highly seasonal fruit) try feeding your woman some other especially juicy, suggestive fruit such as mangos, peaches or strawberries.
It’s a little crass but true: Oysters resemble a lady’s most private of parts, and all that slurping, sucking and shucking only takes it’s sexually suggestive nature further. The experience of feeding each other oysters together should be enough to put anyone in the mood. Oysters are also high in zinc, a mineral necessary for sperm and testosterone and increase the amount of dopamine in the brain, a hormone that traditionally enhances libido.
How many times have you seen a woman, whether on screen or in real life, close her eyes and moan passionately when she bites into a piece of chocolate? Its powers of seduction over the modern woman are practically an advertising cliché but there’s science to back up chocolate’s magical aphrodisiac powers. Chocolate, the darker the better, is rich in theobromine – a chemical similar to caffeine so she would feel more stimulated – and phenylethylamine, a chemical that’s usually found in the brain when it’s feeling In Love.
