How to Improve Your Sex Life: Aphrodisiac Foods to Get You in The Loving Mood

Create The Love Atmosphere

It's time to get in the mood for some serious loving people. Do you want to know how to get your groove on? You're on the right page to find out: read on...

First :

  • Nip down to the candle shop for a few whiffy night lights (by whiffy, I mean deliciously scented).
  • Pay a visit to the florist for a beautiful bunch of red roses.
  • Burn a couple of incense sticks.
  • Pick up a bottle of fizzy plonk (good stuff) and leave in the fridge to cool.
  • Turn on the music; something slow, hot and steamy.
  • Ban the leopard skin and any other tacky stuff.
  • Put the cat out; there is only room for two.


Add A Little Spice To Your Love Life:

I have a little tip or two to help that fizzy plonk go down. If your more limp biscuit than chocolate surprise, this hub will make your day or even your night for that matter.

Read on and you'll discover the natural way to sharpen the lead in your pencil. And that, my dear is definitely worth writing home about.

Good luck and happy loving!


Tickle Your Fancy With These Tasty Teasers

Asparagus:

  • An easy food to hand feed your lover, although apparently you need to eat it for at least three days to be really effective. I'm thinking I'll give it a go for a couple weeks, after that I'll add a few poached eggs.

Bananas:

  • High in vitamin B of course. Good for the ole libido and great on your cornflakes. No excuses anyone. Breakfast really is the most important meal of the day!

Cayenne:

  • See Guava down below... (the end of the paragraph silly).

Chillies:

  • The capsaicin in the chillies releases endorphins, speeding up the heart rate and everything else so it seems! A Bloody Mary cocktail with extra piri piri might just do the trick. Bottoms up!

Chocolate:

  • A well known stimulant with that extra feel good factor. But surely we don't need any encouragement to eat chocolate. In case you do, I have a suggestion. Dip fresh strawberries into melted chocolate and take succulent little bites (from the strawberries and calm down a tad; the night is still young).

Figs:

  • Adam and Eve covered their nudity with fig leaves. In my opinion you should be able to work out the rest for yourself. On that note I'll leave it there, I've got to see a man about a fig tree.

Ginger:

  • A fresh root that stimulates the circulatory system. If your unsure of what that means add a good spoonful of freshly grated ginger to a stir fry and see what happens.

Guava:

  • Increases the blood flow around the body to all the right places. More importantly they are high in vitamin C, and that's why they're top of my shopping list.

Honey:

  • An ole tale, tells the story of how young honeymoon couples would drink a fermented drink made from honey on their wedding night. The idea behind the old tradition was to make the honey drinking honeymooners marriage sweet. Practice makes perfect!

Oysters:

  • A well known keen aphrodisiac. High in zinc and blessedly easy to prepare. Eaten raw, served on ice with a glass of Guinness to wash them down, majestic. Although you'd be advised to go easy on the black stuff. There's a lot of iron floating around in a pint of Guinness.

Pine nuts:

  • In the olden days these nuts were often brewed to make secret love potions by the old woman folk of rural villages. Personally, I'd rather stick' em in my pesto.

Wine:

  • A glass of vinho relaxes the body and clears the mind. The main word of warning here is MODERATION. Otherwise the only thing wine will do for your libido is send it straight to sleep.

Happy Days Lovers

Aphrodite: A Note on The Goddess of Love

Aphrodite was the goddess of love and desire. She was a very beautiful woman and was only too aware of her own loveliness. Aphrodite liked to play games and was a jealous woman. It was one of Aphrodite's games that went wrong, which was responsible for Paris falling in love with the married Helen of Troy (feel another blog coming on). Some people believe Aphrodite was the mother of Eros ie Cupid. One of her many children.

Aphrodite loved to be loved and was quite the wanderer; constantly seeking out new lovers to feed her desire for love. It was this great desire that attributed her name to the foods we associate with love today ie Aphrodisiac.

Did You Know:

Our sense of smell can, when tickled by the right scent unleash the passionate lover in us all. Jasmin and lavender scented candles create a subtle romantic mood, encouraging our hotter emotions to swim to the surface. Cedarwood essence is another wonderfully alluring scent that awakens the deepest of passions. A sweet smelling perfume will certainly make you feel quite heady for all the right reasons if worn by the right person.

Love and romance empowers us and brings joy to our daily lives. Valentines brings out the cupid in all of us. But you know what? don't wait for one special love day to come around each year. Go get your bow an arrow out; play the music; dim the lights and crack an oyster. In other words; do an Aphrodite and start loving...

Will you be loving this Valentines Day?

  • Absolutely, bring on the love potions
  • I sure will, I've got the plonk, the candles and the chocolate
  • What can I say, call me Cupid
  • Nah! not into it
  • What's Valentines Day?
  • Humbug

Nice, short and to the point. I guess that's in case the reader is in a hurry for romance. I love the way you write as if you are talking to your reader. I can almost hear your voice.
