Aphrodisiacs for better love makingBy


Pure chocolate, the king of natural aphrodisiacs, contains a host of compounds including anandamide, the psychoactive feel-good chemical, and PEA (phenylethylamine), the “love chemical,” which releases dopamine in the pleasure centers of the brain and peaks during orgasm. PEA is said to help induce feelings of excitement, attraction and euphoria. Cacao also contains tryptophan, a key component of the neurotransmitter serotonin known to promote a sense of well-being and relaxation, and serotonin, a chemical that makes you happy and thus more inclined to show your partner some affection. Adding to this powerhouse aphrodisiac is caffeine, which keeps you awake long enough to take care of business. We suggest skipping the half-priced candy aisle on November 1 and instead try licking Kama Sutra Milk Chocolate Body Paint off your partner instead.

For a long time, people believed that celery’s aphrodisiac properties were a myth, tied to the phallic shape of this vegetable. Today we know that it contains androsterone, a hormone naturally produced in males that stimulates sexual arousal in females. Whether or not this hormone in celery form can affect the body is still unclear. Further studies are being conducted in the matter, so, until proven other, we say eat your greens.


Oysters are probably the food most associated with being an aphrodisiac, with a well-known reputation for increasing sexual desire. The infamous Casanova was said to eat them by the dozens. There is the obvious imagery of genitalia with oysters, as well as a direct association with Aphrodite, the goddess of love and beauty, for whom aphrodisiacs are named and whom sprang from an oyster shell. Along with these historical implications, oysters possess a very high zinc content, which helps produce sperm and increases libido. Oysters also pack a punch of iron, which a deficiency of could leave you too tired to be in the mood for love.


This sweet nectar is a great source of boron, a trace mineral that helps the body use and metabolize estrogen, the female sex hormone.

This sexy fruit has long been thought of as an arousing stimulant, and an open fig is believed to emulate the female sex organs. Figs are steeped in history and are one of the oldest-recorded fruits. They are mentioned in the Bible, with Adam and Eve wearing fig leaves to cover their private parts. They are said to have been Cleopatra’s favorite fruit, and the ancient Greeks held them as sacred and associated them with love and fertility.


Throughout antiquity, almonds were regarded as fertility symbols, with the aroma of almond supposedly arouses passion in females. Today, scientists say that almonds provide high doses of vitamin E, magnesium and even fiber. Therefore, there seems to be something in the almond myths after all. If you aren’t in the mood to munch on (or smell) these nuts, you can use the Sweet Almond Massage Oil found in the Kama Sutra Weekender Kit to help put your partner in the mood.


Ginseng is an oft-used aphrodisiac in Asian cultures, but American researchers remain skeptical of its powers. Ginseng literally means “man root,” and has been shown to get animals aroused, but these results haven’t been duplicated in studies with human subjects. If ginseng does have any aphrodisiac oomph, it might be due to the mild stimulation in energy that it can cause.

Pumpkin Pie

If you find yourself particularly amorous around Thanksgiving, it might be due to the dessert table. In studies conducted by the Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation in Chicago, the scent of the fall’s favorite treat was found to increase penile blood flow by 40 percent. The scent was also found to increase sexual desire in women. Along these lines, cinnamon and vanilla have also been touted for their abilities as aphrodisiacs.
