19 surprising aphrodisiacs to get you excited
The hedonist in me can’t decide what I like most: food or sex. What is your pleasure? Fortunately, the aphrodisiacs to get you excited combine these two passions deliciously, and the result is downright delicious.
For centuries, people have searched for food and drink to improve their sex lives, long before drug companies capitalized on drugs to do just that. And while you usually devour something for your sustenance, its health benefits, or its taste, there is something fun about food and drink with a sexy legacy behind it.
Food to get you in the mood and drink to whet your palate more, also have the added benefit of thoughtfulness. Preparing a meal to cultivate a feeling, whether it’s physiological, psychological, or both, is in itself a damn sexy thing for your lover to do. And he might be the classics nerd in me, but knowing that people in ancient times ate and drank these delicacies before they raved, makes these aphrodisiacs even hotter. Certain foods have physiological benefits to spice up your sex life; others carry the mythology of being sexy and that’s enough to jumpstart your libido. Whatever your tastes, the following bites will satisfy your cravings while making you want something else.
