Ten Foods That Will Get You In the Mood!

By Elena Ognivtseva

Are you not in the mood lately? Is the idea of a sex toy depressing you due to your lacklustre sex life? Don’t stress too much. A lack of interest in sex is not always a case of dysfunction or neuroses. In fact, you or your spouse could be suffering from a horrific case known as…as…bad diet? That’s right! The foods you eat on a regular basis do affect your sex life.

In general, it is best to eat healthy foods (think veggies and fruits) rather than enjoy an abundance of junk food. If you are eating healthy and still don’t feel the same fire, why not try an aphrodisiac? Aphrodisiacs are not medically proven, but they work wonders for some lovers who are more than happy to pass along the secret. Don’t fret now…we’re not going to recommend anything gross like tiger penis or goat testicles! Here’s a quick and interesting list of some foods you can pick up at your local Woolies or Coles.

These 10 common foods will serve you just as well!

1. Ginger

Ginger increases blood circulation in the genital area, which is precisely what Viagra and all those supplements do for you. Furthermore, many believe ginger has an arousing aroma.

2. Chocolate

You may know that every woman loves chocolate…but do you know why? Chocolate contains “love chemicals” anandamide, phenylethylamine and tryptophan. Simply put, they help to release dopamine in your brain. This is the same chemical that helps bring along orgasm.

3. Chilli

Chilli pods contain capsaicin, a chemical that releases endorphins, which some say contribute much to sexual appetite and pleasure.

4. Walnut

This nut helps keep your blood flow fast and flowing, and excellent vascular health helps to intensify orgasms and increase sex drive.

5. Avocados

This fruit is high in B6, which helps to regulate the thyroid gland and the release of those good hormones.

6. Bananas

Bananas are not only shaped suggestively but also help men to produce testosterone and to keep up their stamina.

7. Porridge

No wonder granny was so fertile…she was a demon in the sack, and that may be all thanks to porridge. This healthy food improves prostate health, contributing to healthy semen, and also works as a general libido enhancer.

8. Nutmeg

Nutmeg has shown some promise of having an aphrodisiacal effect on lab mice. Hopefully it’s the same for us!

9. Honey

Honey contains the chemical boron, which helps to produce estrogen in women, contributing to overall sexual health.

10. Figs

Figs have always been associated with sex, since ancient times, and even in numerous biblical references. Legend is that real life sex goddess Cleopatra ate of figs, and these helped her to keep an insatiable appetite. To this day, figs are still associated with fertility.

Other natural aphrodisiacs to sample include garlic, fennel, oysters, liquorice and celery. Indeed, the healthier you and your partner are, the more you get out of sex. There is no need to drink down strange supplemental drinks, rub anything on your twanger, or go see the doctor for an awkward conversation. Try to improve your dieting first and make sure to add some of these extras (very discreet ones, at that!) to your grocery bag!
