While most of us might look forward to spending the evening in with our lovers, some may feel unprepared and possibly even anxious about performing correctly on this most sensual holiday.
However, it may be easier than you think to enhance your libido, vamp up your sex-drive and get ready for a wild night with your lover. Interestingly, the foods we consume can directly affect our sex-drive, and either become aphrodisiacs or mood killers. For thousands of years human beings have known about the link between food and sex drive, but it wasn’t until science began researching these links that we’ve been able to prove that certain foods do hold power over our bodies. Now we know which foods boost or numb our reproductive organs. By paying attention to our diets and consuming the right nutrients, we can live a fabulous and orgasmic life-style.
To help you gain a better grasp on the right foods for your sex life, we have crafted a brief overview of libido improving aphrodisiacs that are guaranteed to make you ready for V-Day. Some of the items on our list might surprise you while others might not be so surprising, but come at each of them with an open mind and prepare yourself for a lustful experience with your lover after giving these scrumptious sex foods a go.
It doesn’t take a stretch of the imagination to realize that avocados look an awful lot like a pair of male testicles. The ancient Aztecs even named the avocado tree the “testicle tree”.

This is excellent for both men and women as testosterone increases the libido and drives blood to the genitalia.

Noting says sex quite like spicy food, and with good reason.
