According to the great Wikipedia, an aphrodisiac is a substance, such as food and drink, that increases sexual desire. However, it’s never been scientifically proven that such a link exists. Anecdotally, there are those folks who swear certain foods increase the libido. I am certain my second son was conceived due to a delectable cheesecake eaten at a popular restaurant 😉
Chocolate has the reputation for being a prominent aphrodisiac. Painting your lover with chocolate will probably do more for enhancing the experience than relying on any chemical in the food to spark an erotic response. No food can magically make a person horny. Even the most reputably known aphrodisiac, the oyster, has never been proven to make sex better. Oysters are high in amino acids which in turn make dopamine which is a happy hormone. Oysters do resemble a certain part of the female anatomy and that can be titallating.
Fruit can be very erotic. All you have to do is slice an apple lengthwise to find out why. Many fruits have a suggestive shape like strawberries, mangos, kiwis and bananas. Bet you never thought about fruit like that before!
A beautiful bountiful bowl of lush fruit can be very appealing before and after love making. Imagine blind folding your lover and feeding them luscious fruit dipped in, what else, chocolate. After a satisfying romp why not recharge and replenish with a healthy bowl of fruit.
Wine and other types of alcohol are known to get people in the mood. A little dulling of senses has led to many a one night stand. Be aware that alcohol is a known depressant and it dehydrates the body both of which can dampen the mood quickly. If you are going hot and heavy, keep a bottle of water nearby. Sex is considered exercise!
Since sex is a physical activity, treat is as such. Have a light meal before the fun and replenish with milk! Milk is a very popular post workout drink. It’s got carbs and protein, a perfect refueling combo. If you went extra hard go with the chocolate milk 😉
