Aphrodisiacs – Food for Romance
When you are in the mood for love
Aphrodisiacs are items of food which are reputed to increase sexual desire and put you in the mood for romance. Since ancient times, humans have long been on the search for natural ways to boost desire and make sex more enjoyable. Well-known supposed aphrodisiacs like chocolates, oysters, champagne, and chili peppers, are offered year after year worldwide on the Valentine’s Day menus of restaurants.
You may be someone who emphatically believes in the power of aphrodisiacs, but there is no scientific proof that the compounds in these foods do work, and there is no scientific evidence that they don’t work.
However, there is evidence that in the right atmosphere, the so-called aphrodisiacs can at least get you in the mood for romance.
Do these foods really promote sexual desire?
Let’s look at the more well-known aphrodisiacs and see how they actually shape up.
- Chili peppers. If your date is a spicy food lover, chili peppers are a great choice for getting in the mood. Chilies make the tongue tingle, make the cheeks flush, and plump up the lips. The heat at the table could really spice up your date for both of you.
- A romantic meal can easily end up in the bedroom, especially if you end the meal with cup of coffee or espresso. The caffeine will not only give you some energy, but also elevate the mood and put you in mind for some loving.
- Oysters have long been considered a true aphrodisiac, but here are some facts why they seem to work. Oysters are extremely high in zinc, which has been dubbed the “ultimate sex mineral” as it appears to keep your sexual responses in tip-top condition. Zinc is an essential mineral needed in every cell of the body, and promotes good blood flow to all parts of the body, including the genitals, where it is highly desired for sexuality. Perhaps it is this function which gives oysters its notable aphrodisiac reputation
- Other foods. Strawberries might look like little hearts to some, and may be romantic to eat, especially when feeding each other. In the same way, because of the way that they look, cucumbers, bananas, and avocados can also have an aphrodisiac effect.
- The taste of chocolate is smooth, creamy and delicious. Studies have shown that chocolate is a natural source of a chemical compound which is produced in the body during the first moments of falling in love. Chocolate is associated with feeling good, makes you happy, and is a great gift to give to someone, particularly if it is a person you are attracted to. The feel-good chemical in chocolate may easily help your romantic dinner to progress to some bedroom basics.
There is no clinical evidence to prove that any of these sexy, delicious foods have any genuine aphrodisiac qualities. However, because most of them have the potential to elevate the mood and make you feel good, on a psychological level they can potentially produce the results you desire.
Just be yourself, keep the romance alive, and the love will keep flowing.
