10 Seductive Foods Get You In The Mood

10 Seductive Foods Get You In The Mood

1. Foods with sexy shapes

Create visual stimulation with foods that look like genitalia, such as oysters, fresh figs, carrots, even avocados. “Anything that is visually erotic is automatically going to set your brain in motion,” suggests Dr. Cadell.

2. Chocolate

The rumors are true: Chocolate is the surest way to get in a better mood. Although not an actual aphrodisiac (as the ancient Aztecs believed), chocolate contains phenylethylamine and serotonin — natural feel-good substances believed to evoke the same reaction in the body as falling in love.

3. Raw oysters

They may not look pretty, but oysters can pump some passion into your night. High in zinc, which increases sperm and testosterone, oysters also contain the hormone dopamine, known to increase libido.

4. Liqueur-laced coconut macaroons

Everything is just a little sexier with a dash of a sweet liqueur. Add some orange liqueur to coconut macaroons, or whip up a Mexican coffee version for a kiss of mocha.

5. Chocolate-covered strawberries

It might seem obvious, but the sultriest foods are sometimes the simplest. Dip your berries into chocolate fondue. Or to get your sexy on faster, buy prepackaged, meltable chocolate, and zap it in the microwave.

6. Champagne

Tried but true, adding a little bubbly gets your giggles and mood going. Bubble up while you sip your favorite Champagne topped with ripe strawberries or raspberries. Add a splash of your favorite liqueur to create your own signature drink for the evening. Don’t forget the chocolate-covered strawberries!

7. Bananas

Not only do bananas have a certain sexy shape (nudge, nudge), they also contain bromelain and B vitamins, which have been shown to increase sexual desire in men

8. Asparagus

“Asparagus,” wrote English herbalist Nicholas Culpeper in the 17th century, “stirs up lust in man and woman.” Besides its obvious phallic shape, asparagus is high in potassium, fiber, vitamins B6, A and C, thiamin and folic acid. Nutrients in asparagus also boost histamine production, necessary for the ability to reach orgasm in both sexes.

9. Chilies

The hot capsaicin in chilies and other spicy foods can also heat up your sex life. Capsaicin stimulates nerve endings to release chemicals, raises the heart rate and triggers the release of endorphins to give you a natural high.

10. Figs

An ancient aphrodisiac because of its appearance, an open fig is thought to look similar to female sex organs. Figs also pair perfectly with another passion booster: chocolate.

Do try this at home

How sexually potent a taste or smell is varies from person to person. Regardless of your appetite for a particular visual or chemical aphrodisiac, feeling sultry begins above the ears. “Let’s be honest: The most erotic organ is the brain,” says Dr. Cadell. “So if you think something will turn you on, I guarantee it will.”
