7 foods that boost your love life

If your sex life is lacking a little, it might be time to start stocking your food cupboard with supplies that naturally enhance your time between the sheets. Not sure what to add? We've got a menu of seven delicious foods that will spark your sexual appetite in no time. Get ready to eat your way to a better sex life - here are seven romance-inducing foods to help you do just that.

Better sex life food 1: Chocolate

How many times have we heard the phrase "chocolate is better than sex"? Well, a study carried out by independent Italian researchers in 2004 found that there may actually be a link between the two. Indeed, the study found that women who consumed chocolate on a daily basis had a higher sex drive than those who did not. Scientists suggest that this is because of the high levels of serotonin and phenylethylamine found in chocolate. These natural chemicals lead to that feeling of excitement in our brain and we're feeling frisky before we know it. Now we know why men bring chocolates over for date night - gents, you've been rumbled!

Better sex life food 2: Steak

Boost the sensitivity around your sexual organs with a tasty sirloin steak, which releases dopamine and norepinephrine to get you in the mood. Sirloin steak is packed with zinc, which gives you a boost of energy and sparks your libido. If that's not a good excuse to tuck into a six-inch sirloin, we don't know what is. For all the vegetarians out there, you're not left out; beetroot is packed with both of the above hormones too, meaning that this has the same impact upon your sex drive as steak.

Better sex life food 3: Almonds

Almonds are a great natural source of essential fatty acids, which aid the natural production of hormones in men. Almonds are also a natural source of vitamin E, which is important for the production of oestrogen in women. If you're lacking in these hormones there's a good chance your sex drive will be waning too. Stock up on almonds and you'll be back on form before you know it. Plus, the smell of almonds purportedly sparks feelings of intimacy and passion in the ladies - ooh la la.

Better sex life food 4: Vanilla ice cream

Great news for vanilla ice cream lovers - studies have proven that vanilla ice cream makes for the perfect aphrodisiac. The dairy in ice cream contains calcium and phosphorous, which boosts our libido and makes orgasms more powerful. Not only that, but the scent of vanilla is renowned for its ability to make us feel happy and excited. So ladies and gents, next time you're on a date night, don't forget to ask for vanilla ice cream with your dessert.

Better sex life food 5: Avocados

Feeling a little too sleepy for sexy time? The endorphins released during sex are a great way to fill yourself with energy but if you simply can't muster the energy to get started in the first place, an avocado will help you out. The high levels of folic acid in this natural food help to metabolise proteins, which ultimately provide you with a good boost of energy right when you need it.

Better sex life food 6: Celery

Chocolate-dipped strawberries, whipped cream, heart-shaped cupcakes, a stick of celery... The latter food item in the above list might not sound like the most romantic food to get you in the mood, but it certainly does the job! Celery contains the androsterone hormone, which is released through male perspiration (don't worry, it's odourless) and turns women on. Forget the romantic box of chocolates - pass us a stick of celery!

Better sex life food 7: Strawberries

Next time it feels like your sex life is slipping through your fingers, just reach for a handful of strawberries. The high levels of zinc packed into this little fruit boost your energy to help get you in the mood, not to mention the impact it has on regulating testosterone levels and increasing the sperm count in men. In women, the higher the zinc level, the quicker the body prepares itself for sex.

Im already a fan of strawberry, summery and good for wrinkle-prevention too. But heard its bad for those with hypothyroidism.

You mean plump and light-red berries with like a "stubbled" "sesame seed" effect - some call them strawberries - which you can wrap your manly lips around, chomp and munch away, and savour the juices in a satisfied and joyful way?:p

A combination of broccoli, cauliflower, oysters, bird's eye chillies and avoiding sex or masturbation for 100 hours, is known to create an excellent and thorough ejaculate, with great characteristics of colour, taste, gloopiness and a high testosterone loading. Plus spermatozoa.
