Aphrodisiacs blend smell, vision, and taste into an excellent meal of sensuous pleasure. Combine certain foods and, before you know it, your meal is an adventure filled with delight and satisfaction. Here are some Thanksgiving foods which have the potential to turn you on:
Figs have a high dose of Vitamin A, which helps enhance one’s sex drive. Have you noticed people are serving fig jam, figs and cheese, and fig pate, at parties these days? Now you know why.
If you are a man and wanting to attract a woman, celery is your answer. It contains androsterone, a strong male hormone that sexually arouses women. Look for the celery sticks in the crudités at the Thanksgiving dinner, or served as appetizers with cream cheese.
Who can deny how sexy steamy asparagus spears look on a platter? They’re also full of Vitamin E, a natural sexual stimulant.
Avocados are highly erotic food. Turning a salad filled with the soft, smooth, mushy, fruit into the base for an enjoyable beginning. Add a tomato and an herb like basil and the combination becomes seductive.
Oysters have huge amounts of powerful zinc – a mineral that produces testosterone in both men and women, and increases sexual drive and pleasure. Zinc improves the length of an erection, as well as the quality of the sperm. Try stuffing with oysters and shitake mushrooms for a double dose of zinc.
Have you ever used fennel to make a dish more interesting? Well, that’s not all it’s good for…fennel has the ability to boost a woman’s libido.
Don’t rule out sweet potato, which is full of vitamin A, vitamin C and iron – all important sex drive nutrients.
Pumpkin pie is an olfactory sexual aphrodisiac. The smell increases blood flow to the penis by 40%. When eaten, pumpkin’s natural zinc content increases blood flow and testosterone.
Honey and it’s Vitamin B content stimulates the production of testosterone, a major manager of one’s sexual desires and sexual drive.
End your meal with wine and chocolate – the perfect combination. Red wine changes the mood, lowers inhibition and stimulates desire. Chocolate contains endorphins, dopamine, two hormones that change one’s mood, inhibitions, and arouse sexual desire.
