So while you’re checking out Yoga for Better Sex and making sweat sexy, don’t forget to eat sexy too.
For years, certain foods have been touted as aphrodisiacs. Named after the Greek goddess Aphrodite, foods with aphrodisiac properties are thought to contain specific properties that boost libido and sexual desire. But can you really eat a love potion to boost your sexual desires… or is it all a big ol’ mindf*ck?!
Let’s find out if these 4 Valentine's Day aphrodisiacs work or nahhh…
If you’re feeling the blahs in the bedroom, just believing that some of these foods may upgrade your bedroom desires can work wonders (hellooo placebo effect))! As for true aphrodisiacs? The science is still out on many of these, but why not try one or all of them and see if they reduce your stress levels, lift your mood or increase blood flow to reveal the sexual prowess in you.
