Foods That Get Your Sex Engine Running
It’s time to heat things up and we aren’t just talking about adjusting the thermostat. Although that might help, too. Like a car without a well-oiled engine, a body without the proper fuel can’t get moving. These 8 foods are guaranteed to raise your flags and start the engines
Popeye was really on to something with the whole spinach thing and Olive Oil couldn’t help but swoon at his overwhelming sexual appeal. Despite being a cartoon that exaggerated the effects spinach had on health and sex appeal, they weren’t all wrong. Spinach is rich in magnesium and folate, which help increase blood flow by dilating blood vessels. Increased blood flow to the genitals will keep you and your partner highly aroused longer. The extra boost of energy spinach gives will maintain stamina through all those extra rounds.
A staple at any summer barbecue, watermelon is probably the last food you’d peg for increasing libido. Consuming this summertime favorite could be the difference between having a good summer and a great summer. Watermelon contains citrulline, which is an amino acid that dilates blood vessels and increases libido. No wonder why Beyonce was drinkin’ watermelon.
The most beloved and highly politicized topping at brunch just added a dash of sexy to your Sunday afternoon. Avocado is great for the heart and arteries because it is low in saturated fats and rich in unsaturated fats. A healthy heart helps pump blood to all the right places. As if anyone needed another reason to eat avocado toast.
Ready to literally spice things up? Add a dash of cayenne pepper to increase blood flow, heart rate, and get a little pre-session sweat going. Don’t be afraid of a little heat.
Nuts and Seeds
Avoid any calls from the munchies by snacking on nuts and seeds like sunflower or almonds. Nuts and seeds contain muscle building protein and filling fiber. All of which are necessary for a quality romp session.
This is a no duh sexy food. Champagne and chocolate covered strawberries anyone? Eating chocolate releases a chemical compound phenylethylamine, which in turn releases dopamine. This results in feelings of happiness or euphoria. What’s better than being happily in love? Chocolate, of course.
Unsweetened Iced Tea
Another blood flow booster, unsweetened iced tea will not only enhance your sexual desire, it’s also a refreshing treat when a timeout is called. Catechins promote blood flow to all the right places.
Best shared in a booth tucked away in a quiet corner of a bar or at home under a blanket next to a roaring fire, red wine is the ideal beverage for lovers to share. Red wine is full of antioxidants that increase blood flow to the genitals. Is that a phone in your front pocket or are you just really happy to be here? Red wine also helps relax the walls of the arteries, but any more than two glasses is risky.
