The hedonist in me can't decide what I love more: food or sex. What's your pleasure? Luckily, the aphrodisiacs to turn you on delightfully combine these two passions, and the result is downright delicious.
For centuries people have sought out food and drink to improve their sex lives, well before pharmaceutical companies capitalized on drugs to do just that. And although you usually devour something for sustenance, its health benefits, or its taste, there's something fun about food and drink with a sexy legacy behind it.
Food to help get you get in the mood and drink to whet more than your palate, also have the added bonus of thoughtfulness. Preparing a meal to cultivate a feeling, whether it's physiological, psychological, or both, is in and of itself a damn sexy thing to do for your lover. And maybe it's the classics nerd in me, but knowing that people from ancient times ate and drank these delicacies back in the day before ravishing each other, makes these aphrodisiacs even hotter. Some 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 taste, the following nibbles will satisfy your cravings while making your hunger for something else.
