Top Everyday Foods To Eat For A Healthy Sex Life

Most long-term couples look for ways to revamp their sex life at some point in their relationship, as daily chores and busy schedules can get in the way of romance. 

As well as getting your hands on a sex toy starter kit, which can definitely add some excitement in the bedroom and make you feel like a young couple in the first throes of the relationship, did you know you could simply change your diet to get the spark back?

Here are some foods that are well worth adding to your shopping list if you want to get kinky with your partner again. 

  • Coffee
  • Lots of people know about the aphrodisiac properties of oysters, but you don’t have to spend a fortune to enjoy making love. 

    In fact, your morning coffee could already be doing the trick without you even realising it. 

    According to research from the University of Texas, men who drank two to three cups of coffee every day were less likely to have problems with erectile dysfunction (ED). 

    This is especially the case for overweight guys, so if you’re carrying some extra pounds, make sure you get your daily coffee in to keep the blood flowing to your penis for years to come. 

    The caffeinated drink has a lot of other benefits for bedroom antics too, including increasing heart rate and blood flow, boosting stamina, and helping to maintain performance. 

    It also provides a dopamine hit, which may help get you in the mood. 

  • Strawberries
  • There’s a reason why strawberries are a sexy fruit, so if you’re trying to get kinky with your lover, grab yourself a punnet or two. 

    Feeding each other juicy fresh strawberries is incredibly sexy, particularly if they are covered in melted chocolate, and the succulent fruit was once thought to be a symbol of the Roman goddess of love, Venus. 

    Containing flavonoids, they also help to ward off ED, so it is worth chowing down on a handful every week to keep performance in the bedroom going strong. 

  • Chocolate
  • Speaking of chocolate, they really are a great gift to give your partner on Valentine’s Day, as they contain phenethylamine and tryptophan, which are thought to turn you on. 

    Phenethylamine is naturally released by the brain when falling in love, while the latter produces serotonin, helping you feel good, relax and get you in the mood. 

    Dark chocolate, especially, is great for lovers, as it has a higher content of the amino acid L’arginine, which increases blood flow. 

    The high levels of caffeine in chocolate also widens blood vessels, so don’t be surprised if you have an erection or feel rowdy after sharing a few creamy chocolates.

  • Asparagus
  • It might be known for turning your wee green, but asparagus is also a good food to eat if you want to spice things up in the bedroom. 

    This is due to its aspartic acid, which reduces ammonia levels in the body, increasing energy and sexual desire as a result. 

    So if you’re planning a romantic meal, don’t forget a side dish of asparagus!
