Cooking with Aphrodisiacs

Usually we’ll try to wear hot lingerie, alluring perfume or a great outfit to attract our mates. But what about what we serve them to eat? According to sexologist, Dr. Ava Cadell, different foods work for different stages of your relationship based on their physiological properties. If you want to encourage flirting in yourself or mate, try eating “happy foods” that will help you feel confident, and lower your inhibitions. These include: chili peppers, bananas and carrots. If you’re already intimate and want to increase seduction try eating shrimp, chocolate, ginger, olives or tomatoes. WebMD has a list of foods that can help the body to release sex hormones which turn you on. Try eating some of those foods this Valentine’s Day for a delicious evening!
