Not only is salmon a luxurious choice for an entree, but it’s also a potent aphrodisiac. Salmon is high in omega-3 fatty acids and essential vitamins that boost libido and assist the production of serotonin and sex hormones.
If you’re willing to pay extra for guac, you could reap the sexual benefits of avocado. The name avocado appropriately comes from “ahuacatl”, the Aztec word for “testicle”. The nutrients in avocados help the body generate more nitric acid, which helps dilate blood vessels and improve erectile function.
3. Chocolate Covered Strawberries
Chocolate covered strawberries are a staple sexy treat, but what makes them even sexier is that both chocolate and strawberries are aphrodisiacs. Chocolate aids serotonin production, which is important for sexual arousal, and can trigger the release of phenylethylamine, the stimulant released in the brain when you fall in love. Strawberries are high in Vitamin C, which is important in the production of sex hormones and the neurotransmitters in the brain related to libido.
Oysters are one of the most well-known aphrodisiacs, so this list would be incomplete without them. Oysters are high in zinc, which is essential for sperm production, and amino acids, which trigger increased levels of sex hormones.
5. Red Wine
Small amounts of alcohol of any type can have a positive impact on sexual activity. However, red wine in particular is a step above the rest. If you’ve ever felt attracted to your beverage, you should know that red wine has seductive properties because it contains compounds similar to human pheromones. More importantly, red wine reduces inflammation, which improves blood flow to sexual organs.
6. Hot Chile Peppers
Some like it hot! In addition to spicing up your meal, chile peppers have the potential to spice up your love life. The hot sting of chile peppers on your tongue causes your body to release adrenaline and endorphins, which cause a brief “high” feeling during physical exertion.
While aphrodisiacs can increase libido, they cannot cure sexual health problems such as erectile dysfunction.
