Foods that spice up your sex lifeWe have all heard about aphrodisiacs, but which ones really work? We sat down with food historian Francine Segan at the Museum of Sex in New York City who told us about five aphrodisiacs that can help us spice things up.
Stop worrying about your breath, and start heating up your sex life! Garlic contains the enzyme nitric oxide synthase which increases blood flow to the sex organs.
Deer Antler Tea
No, this is not a special brand of tea, it is actually a tea made out of thinly sliced deer antlers. This aphrodisiac dates back to ancient china where it was believed that if you have an issue with something being limp, you should eat something long and hard to remedy it. Deer antlers became a popular choice due to the virility of a buck, so whether this aphrodisiac is psychological or scientific, it is an aphrodisiac that has been used by men for centuries.
Besides being incredibly delicious, chocolate is also a powerful aphrodisiac with a long history. Casanova himself used to feed chocolate to his lovers and studied that he found chocolate to be more successful then both oysters and champagne when it came to putting a woman in the mood.
When you eat something hot, your heart begins to race and you start to perspire. This releases endorphins that increase euphoria and mimic the feeling of sex. But hot spices aren't the only aphrodisiacs. The so-called "pumpkin pie spices" (ginger, clove, nutmeg) also have the same effect. So spice it up! Literally…
Good N Plenty
There is an institute in Chicago that studied fragrances and how they affect sexual stimulation in men and women. Believe it or not, the most stimulating scent for both sexes was licorice with a 40% increase in arousal. Perfumes and colognes only increased stimulation by 3%. Tip from Francine: Save your money on perfume and just stick a few Good N Plenty in your bra.
