What Foods Are Aphrodisiacs?

Food is pretty sexy in its own right, but what we may forget is that certain foods can actually put you in the mood for romance. Aphrodisiacs as they are known, are foods that can get you feeling hot under the collar and ready for some frisky fun. 

But how do they work and what foods could be aphrodisiacs? 

What are aphrodisiacs? 

The idea of an aphrodisiac is that it is going to release those much-needed feel-good compounds that will help your body to feel ready to welcome some romance. Another way that aphrodisiacs work is that they will improve the blood flow around your body, which means that the blood is going to flow to your most private parts (ideal if you want to get yourself ready for some naked time). 

Which foods are aphrodisiacs?

So, now you know what aphrodisiacs are and how they work, you might want to try them for yourself. There are plenty of foods out there that can get you in the mood, in their own ways. They vary in sweet and savoury and some can be enjoyed on their own as a treat, whilst others need to be a part of a bigger meal. 

The most commonly sampled aphrodisiacs include:

  • Asparagus
  • Chocolate
  • Oysters
  • Fig
  • Artichokes
  • Spicy Peppers
  • Watermelon
  • Strawberries

Chocolate is, by its own right a sensual and naughty food. Whilst it tastes amazing, it is also full of a variety of chemicals that are going to boost your serotonin levels in your brain, which will make you feel hella good! 

Whilst oysters might not look good, they are such a good boost to your sex drive. The first reason is simply because they look pretty rude, but another reason is because they are high in zinc, which is not only key in regulating sexual hormones, but also in the production of semen too. When you also consider all that licking and slurping that goes on, you can easily see how it gets you going. 

Sometimes the best way to get you warmed up for naked fun, is to actually warm yourself up. This is how spicy food can help you. It will help to get your heart pumping around your body, which will stimulate all those key nerve endings and increase blood flow to your skin too. 

You may not realise it but watermelon is also a great treat before hitting the bedroom. It contains a chemical which is called citrulline, which is able to relax your blood vessels, in much the same way that Viagra works. 

Not every aphrodisiac food is going to be one that you want to eat; but if you find one that you like eating, then make sure that you work it into your foreplay. It will not only be great fun to explore with your partner, but it will also be a helping hand in making sure that you feel in the mood and you can both have some fun!
