Dark Chocolate Aphrodisiac
High on my husband’s list for foods that increase libido is chocolate. Who doesn’t love a really good piece of chocolate? Though it hasn’t been “scientifically proven,” we have tested this aphrodisiac time and time again with the same results.
Yep, libido boosting results!
Chocolate does some pretty great things that could lead to amorous thoughts. Here are some of them:
- Increases endorphin productions
- Chocolate has alkaloids that help with our libido
- Lowers stress
- Sensual to eat
- Increases blood flow
- Boosts energy
- Elevates mood
A square of dark chocolate has minerals that can help produce both testosterone and estrogen!
Some experts say that chocolate is merely a psychological aphrodisiac. Isn’t that all we need some time? Our minds can put us in the mood. I personally disagree. The chocolate experience is a great aphrodisiac.
Ever had a really good port with a decadent piece of chocolate? Throw in candle light or a crackling fire, and you have a recipe for sexual desire. I believe chocolate leads to high desire, high arousal, and high satisfaction.
The key? Set the mood! It’s no surprise why this is one of our favorite foods that increase libido.
Food and sex are mans two basic needs. Okay, throw in water and men are set.
Let’s look at watermelon. Watermelon has been known to increase a mans’ sex drive.
Watermelon, when eaten, releases chemicals that are similar to Viagra. Crazy, I know!
Watermelon actually relaxes our blood vessels. Blood vessels play an intricate part in satisfying sex.
If your blood vessels are not working properly then you may have difficulty becoming engorged, and even aroused. Interesting eh? Our body really does work like a machine.
So here is your prescription for good sex. 1. Go for a run. 2. Eat watermelon. Both help with blood flow and make you feel good.
Who knows, you may feel sexy after that run and your blood vessels will be relaxed. If you ask me, that’s a recipe for sex!

I’m a fan of chili peppers for increasing libido. Do you know why? Because they are scientifically proven!!!! Yay! So, spice up your food.
Chili peppers can spice up your plate and your bedroom!
Chilies increase your blood circulation and contain a chemical called Capsaicin. Capsaicin does a body good. It releases a feel good hormone called endorphins. When you feel good you want to have sex.
