The power of chemicals on the body’s responses is undeniable. If we combine chemicals, delicious food and libido together in a single post we’re faced with a list of how to improve sexual arousal and potency…by eating!
The phrase “chocolate is better than sex” is very clichéd. However, while this isn’t entirely true, chocolate does have a lot to do with the sexual experience. We thought it would be a great idea to start with this tasty treat to explain how foods can benefit our sexual encounters. Let’s begin!
Chocolate contains phenylethylamine, an alkaloid and neurotransmitter that is naturally released when we fall in love. As well as boosting energy, mood and attention, it stimulates the release of serotonin, a powerful aphrodisiac that revamps sexual performance.
All cinnamon everything
Cinnamon is usually pretty divisive: you either love it or hate it. But whether you like it or not, its properties are undisputable. Cinnamon increases circulation and stimulates blood flow to the genitals of both men and women, thus enhancing and improving arousal.
With this in mind… try adding cinnamon to your morning coffee or dessert. As well as making your day sweeter, you will benefit from its aphrodisiac effect.
Figs and bananas!
Yes, this is an illusion to the genitalia, but with good reason. Both fruits are delicious delicacies that can improve our sex lives. On the one hand, figs are high in beta carotene, which is ideal for hormone production and increasing desire, as well as being a great source of energy.
Bananas, on the other hand, balance the neurotransmitters thanks to their high potassium and vitamin B content, and improve mood and self-esteem.
With this in mind… say no to shop-bought pastries and ultraprocessed desserts, and replace them with these delicious fruits. We guarantee some intense “siestas”.
A little tipple
Wine typically contains about 10-15% alcohol, which exerts a powerful disinhibitory effect when consumed in moderation. If you overdo it, not even the libido of a polar bear on heat (they can smell up to 30 km away) will help you get it together, and you may encounter some more serious problems too. Now we’ve addressed quantity, you should know that wine contains antioxidants with vasodilatory effects, so desire starts to burn.
With this in mind… prepare a dessert containing all of the above and serve with a glass of wine. Don’t forget to gift your neighbour some ear plugs – tonight looks promising!
