Food That Make Better Flirts and Lovers

I read from an article that aphrodisiacs make better flirts and lovers. I believe so as I have tried them out myself. But be careful with the amount of consumption as some can be high in calories! Choose the fruits. A better choice.

Researchers say the smell, taste, and even appearance of certain foods can act as aphrodisiacs. They can get you in the mood for love. And knowing what foods are appropriate can maximize these effects.

Pyschologically, different foods affect the body in different ways. Some lower inhibitions, get the blood flowing directly to the genitalia, and some release happy hormones.

I quote these from the articles. (By Jennifer Warner, WebMD Feature)

Foods for Flirting

When looking for a potential mate, it is important to choose foods that secrete chemicals and hormones that make you happy in order to increase self-confidence, lower inhibitions, and make you a better flirt.

Flirt-friendly foods include:

Chili peppers. Spicy foods get the heart pumping and induce sweating.
Bananas. They contain chemicals that reportedly have a mood-lifting effect on the brain and raises self-confidence.
Carrots.Their phallic appearance and high-fiber content may induce sexual desire.

Foods for Seduction

Aphrodisiacs can help trigger the release of sex hormones, such as testosterone. They provide a quick energy boost, and increase blood flow to the genitals to get the body "in the mood" for love.

At this stage,it is important to create a visual stimulation with foods that look like the genitalia, such as oysters, fresh figs, or carrots.

Food that is visually erotic is automatically going to set your brain in motion. Certain foods release hormones, like testosterone in women that makes them more sexually aggressive and adventurous.

Other foods for seduction include:

Shrimp. High in iodine, shrimp and other types of seafood are vital to the thyroid gland, which is vital for energy.
Chocolate.Not only does chocolate provide a jolt of caffeine, the plant has a flower that looks like sex organs.
Ginger. This root reportedly increases blood flow to the genitals in both men and women.
Olives. Green ones are believed to make men more virile, while black ones increase women's sex drive.
Tomatoes. Known as "love apples" by Puritans, they have a reputation as a sexual stimulant.
Apples. Since Adam and Eve, this fruit has been synonymous with temptation.

Foods for Sexual Performance

When it comes to the final stage of exploration and orgasm, even the scent alone of some aphrodisiacs may be enough to increase sexual arousal and enhance performance.

In a study that looked at what scents stimulated sexual arousal, every food aroma they tested triggered a sexual response in men, and some foods had more dramatic effects than others.

For example, cheese pizza increased penile blood flow by 5%, buttered popcorn by 9%, and lavender and pumpkin pie by 40%. So you may want to start with something like cheese pizza to begin with.

In comparison, floral perfume only prompted a 3% increase in blood flow to the penis among men. Among women, the smell of men's cologne actually lowered blood flow to the vagina. The study also found that the scent of lavender and pumpkin pie was a powerful sexual stimulant for women.

Unlike with men, the study found that some food smells actually inhibited sexual desire in women, such as cherries and the odor of barbeque or roasting meat.

There are a number of different theories about why foods have such a strong effect on sexual attraction and performance, but it's likely a combination of physiological and psychological responses at work. Because the effects of different foods are linked to past experiences, the sexual potency of various tastes and smells naturally vary greatly from person to person.
Having fun with trying different aphrodisiacs to see what adds the right spice to your sex life.
But over-indulgence in food or drink is a sure way to doom sexual performance and dampen desire. Theres no qiuck fix way.

The most erotic organ is the brain. So if you think something will turn you on, then it will. There has always been a correlation between food and sex because they are two of greatest pleasures known to mankind, and both appetites need to be fulfilled.

    Hi, great post! Now I have a new list of food for food fun/foreplay. Haha...
YESH! My favorite thing is that you can feed each other with the most seductive foods you can find like an asparagus or maybe a chocolate stick, where one person can start at one end and another at the other end and you meet in the middle. Enjoy the fun playing with food.

Yup... High potential! Oysters do create a visual stimulation as they look like the genitalia. If your hubby have a good and creative mind, you should try! Anything that is visually erotic will definitely set your brain in motion. You can start feeding him in your most erotic manner!
