Aphrodisiac packed menu, perfect for a romantic meal
If you’re planning a romantic dinner and are hoping for a bit of post-dinner delight, the food you eat beforehand can be the difference between a soft and sweet cuddle and a full-on session. Discover the foods that you should include in your menu when whipping up a romantic meal for a hot date.
One of the most well-known aphrodisiacs is oysters. Their libido-lifting effects are due to their high zinc content. Zinc is an essential mineral that our bodies need daily for vital functions such as cell metabolism, stamina, and regulating levels of testosterone. Testosterone is the most important male sex hormone and is actually required in both men and women for a healthy sex drive. Oysters also contain two amino acids – D-aspartic acid and N-methyl-D-aspartate – that have been found to increase sex hormones in both men and women.
Ravishing red peppers
One large red pepper contains a high amount of vitamin C. Vitamin C aids in blood circulation to your organs (including the genitals) and it’s also associated with improving the female libido.
F*** me figs
Figs can enhance the secretion of pheromones; these are the chemicals we make to attract mating partners. They’re also high in zinc and magnesium, both needed for making testosterone and other sex hormones.
Dashing dark chocolate
Dark chocolate with a high cocoa percentage helps your body to release the same chemicals as those released during sex. Those feel-good chemicals such as oxytocin help to build sexual desire.
Not only rich in protein and fibre, pistachio nuts may also help ease the symptoms of erectile dysfunction. This is because they help stimulate better blood flow throughout the body – including your nether regions.
Rare and expensive; truffles are a well-known aphrodisiac. Their high protein content helps to increase stamina which is always handy in the bedroom and their aroma is said to mimic the male pheromone.
Mesmerising maca root
Maca is a plant root known as Peru’s ‘natural Viagra’ and is said to increase energy, stamina, fertility, and libido. Often made into a tea, it’s rich in magnesium and fibre, which are both good for improving stamina and energy.
Bonk me bananas
First off, they’re the most phallic-looking food you can find. Secondly, they contain an enzyme called bromelain, which is said to increase a man’s sex drive. Thirdly, they have high levels of potassium to keep your energy levels up while you bonk.
So, there you have it, a list of foods that you should try to work into your dishes to satisfy the stomach and keep you happy in the sack. If you’re planning on a romantic dinner with the hope of it ending in the bedroom, keep these foods in mind for the menu…
