Edible Aphrodisiacs


Rissa and I are in the midst of writing a short story where chocolate has a major role. It was chosen not only because we both love it but because it’s been proven to enhance romance. I have quite a collection of articles about edible aphrodisiacs. Whether they work or not is up to the consumer. But enhancing the libido by the suggestion in your mind couldn’t hurt.

Just added a few new studies to my collection, so as you prepare a holiday meal for that certain someone, keep these in mind.

Of Course chocolate is in there! Women love it for a reason, guys!

"According to Italian researchers, women who eat chocolate regularly have a better sex life than those who deny themselves the treat. Those consuming the sugary snack had the highest levels of desire, arousal and satisfaction from sex."

Chocolate stimulates endorphin production, which gives a feeling of pleasure. The same endorphins produced by kissing. Dark chocolate also contains serotonin, which acts as an anti-depressant and it contains theobromine, caffeine and other substances which are stimulants.

The Journal of Sexual Medicine concurs with the Italian study- people who consume at least one cube of dark chocolate a day experience greater desire and enjoy love making more than those who don’t.

Looking for a Mixer for those drinks? Go Pomegranate!

According to UCLA scientists, this blood red juice gets the real blood flowing! It’s rich in antioxidants that increase blood flow much the way Viagra does. No prescription needed!

Need a side dish when someone special is coming for dinner? Asparagus!

According to the co-author of Great Food, Great Sex (awesome book to have btw!) this long juicy green plant can steam things up! Asparagus has a chemical, Protodioscin, which has been shown to boost arousal.

Yes I share these studies with my husband *g* I get more chocolate as surprise gifts. And just seeing one of the foods or drinks included with our meal…*eg*

Now I leave you with my yearly tribute to my favorite chocolate candy… How Do You Eat a Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup?

I place it up to my mouth. My lips softly caress the side as they part. I gently nip the edges until all the ridges have been grazed. The sensuous aroma of peanut butter blended with chocolate teases me. My eyes drift closed. My mouth moistens. I open for more. I ache to taste it, to take it inside me and devour it. With a hungry moan I draw it into the warmth of my mouth. I press it to the arched top. My tongue holds it in place as it slowly, forcefully, undulates against the underside. I suck and swallow the decadent union of chocolate and peanut butter until nothing is left except the extreme desire for more.
