Women, as aging sets in, begin to experience a prominent drop in sex drive. This is largely due to a decline in the female hormones estrogen and also… testosterone.
Other factors that undermine female desire include childbirth, the onset of menopause, stress, depression, relationship conflicts, fatigue, poor self-image, and inability to reach screaming orgasm.
Men, when they hit certain age, would have to worry about Erectile Dysfunction as well, and this would affect their performance in bed and the desires to have sexual intercourse would decrease. But then again, usually men does not have to worry about ED and low sex drive til they hit 50s.
With the right attitude… and the right food, libido in men and women could be increase.
Here’s some sex food for thoughts:
While celery may not be the first food that comes to mind when you’re thinking sex, it can be a fantastic source food for sexual stimulation. This is because it contains androsterone, an odorless hormone released through male perspiration and turns women on.
How to enjoy this aphrodisiac : Celery is best eaten raw. Wash and cut some, and munch away. But if you hate to eat it raw, make chicken soup out of it, serve with Bloody Mary or even take it with some mayonnaise or tartar sauce.
This is one of the classic aphrodisiacs. Oysters are high in zinc, which raises sperm and testosterone production. Oysters also contain dopamine, a hormone known to increase libido. And it’s undeniable that the experience of slurping a fresh raw oyster is rather erotic.
Try to squeeze it into your foreplay. Feed your spouse and have him/her feed you. The slippery taste sensation and the mere act of slurping on it should get you both in the mood.
How to enjoy this aphrodisiac: Scrub the shells thoroughly to get any dirt or bacteria off. Pry them open and place them on a bed of ice, squeeze some fresh lemon onto them if you like, and then start slurping away sexily.
Bananas contain the bromelain enzyme, which is believed to increase libido and reverse impotence in men. Additionally, they are good sources of potassium and B vitamins like riboflavin, which increase the body’s overall energy levels.
How to enjoy this aphrodisiac: Place them on a dish in various states of undressing and have your lady slowly eat some for you. Then gobble yours down and get to work. Or, you can make some fried fritters out of them, or make them into desserts like banana split. Be sure to be generous with the chocolate sauce and ice cream, though. Chocolates are aphrodisiac as well.
Almonds are a prime source of essential fatty acids. These are vital as they provide the raw material for a man’s healthy production of hormones. Additionally, the smell of almonds is purported to arouse passion in females. Try lighting some almond-scented candles to encourage her mood and snack on some yourself to store up energy for your performance.
How to enjoy this aphrodisiac: Eat them raw. Or, crush some fresh almonds and sprinkle them on your salad to get the energy you need. Or better still, get yourself a honeyed almond biscotti. Personally, I would have suggested finely pounded almond with milk and honey, but some people can’t take it too sweet, so if you don’t like to take sweet stuff, stick it to just plain almond.
Aside from the fact that chocolate is the surest way to a woman’s panties, chocolate contains theobromine, an alkaloid,which is very similar to caffeine.
It also contains phenylethylamine, a chemical believed to produce the feel good feeling.
So, when your woman talks about how good chocolate makes her feel, there is some scientific explanation behind it. In addition, dark chocolate has a massive amount of anti-oxidants, which are great for the body in general, as they help maintain the immune system.
How to enjoy this aphrodisic: No exact way. Just be creative. Squeeze some chocolate sauce onto your partner’s body and lick it away for all I care. Just be creative.
Although not the most sensual of foods, eggs are high in vitamins B6 and B5. These help balance hormone levels and fight stress, two things that are crucial to a healthy libido. Eggs are also a symbol of fertility and rebirth. Some people will eat raw chicken eggs just prior to sex to increase libido and maximize energy levels.
How to enjoy this aphrodisiac: Have some caviar and a bit of champagne during your fun or gobble down some hard-boiled eggs beforehand. Or if you’re feeling romantic, you could make french toast for breakfast in bed.
And last but not least…
Mangoes, peaches and strawberries
