Good food equals great sex

LOS ANGELES — There is nothing in the world better than having amazing sex. The problem is that not everyone knows what amazing sex is, and so we have to be reminded what makes sex great without just going through the motions. There are several factors that lead to that right blend of chemistry with your partner that makes the sex memorable. Smell, taste, touch, are often times even more powerful than sight when it comes to finding the right mate, but there are also a few things you can do which will enhance your sex drive and your sexual prowess to others.
In order to enhance our outward appearance most of us know that going to the gym alone will not make the perfect body. 60% of a great figure requires a great diet and in the sack, a health diet is just as important. So here are a few helpful food tips, which will lead to great sex. Food and sex are closely related. They are physically linked in the limbic system of the brain, which generally controls emotional activity. So knowing what to do with food is important to a great sex life.
The very act of eating is sensual. It stimulates our responses to the world around us, and we react to the smells, tastes, textures and the physical sensations of biting and chewing. The pleasure is increased by the extreme sensitivity of our lips and mouths, which is not really a surprise or kissing would not be so popular.
One cool way to make food a part of a sexual experience is to use our hands. Our sensual pleasure increases when we dispense with the formality of cutlery and eat with our fingers. There is something very sexual about licking your lips or sucking your fingers (or your partners!) to clean them of the last morsels of food. Sharing food with your partner by placing it directly into his or her mouth with your fingers also seems to stimulate some very primitive responses. So if it is lust you are after try hiding the cutlery!
Vitamins and nutrients in some foods have particular benefits, which can stimulate the sex drive. If you want to optimize your sex life the key is to follow a diet that keeps your blood sugar level even and provides plenty of arginine, zinc and omega-3 fats. Reduce your intake of stimulants such as tea, coffee, chocolate, alcohol and cigarettes. Increase nutrient-rich foods like fruit, vegetables, wholefoods, seeds and wheat germ. Eating seeds and nuts like flax, hemp, pumpkin, sunflower and sesame seeds is great for stamina.
Of course you also have to minimize your intake of fried food, processed food and saturated fat from meat and dairy, and avoid sugary snacks which can spike your insulin levels very quickly, but once the high wears off your body becomes lethargic and no one wants to have sex with someone who is tired all the time.
There are also some great foods which can help heighten the sexual experience. Aphrodisiac foods are recognized in almost every culture during the entire span of recorded history. The word is linked with Aphrodite the Greek goddess of sensual love, and aphrodisiac foods are reputed to increase the libido, cure impotence and create desire. Oysters are one of the best known aphrodisiacs. They are high in zinc, and a low sexual drive is one of the symptoms of zinc deficiency. For ultra effect try serving them topped with caviar. It is even rumored that famed lover Casanova ate 50 raw oysters every morning to give him the stamina he needed for all those women.
Asparagus is also considered a great aphrodisiac. The appearance of this vegetable alone is pretty suggestive, but it is definitely more than just a phallic symbol. Asparagus is rich in vitamin E, which is vital for a healthy sex life and high fertility. Vitamin E is used to treat impotence and can also be found in corn, nut and sunflower oils, oats, parsley, and spinach.
Foods Rich in Vitamin C are also highly recommended as part of a good sexual diet. Broccoli, strawberries, citrus fruits, green peppers, brussels sprouts, honeydew, and cantaloupe are all considered great sources for this important vitamin. Vitamin C keeps the skin smooth and supple, and keeps sperm from clinging together in immobile clusters which enables you to enjoy more intense, longer-lasting orgasms. So boys eat your brussels sprouts!
Food doesn't just have to be eaten to be effective. Studies have shown that just the smell of certain foods can turn on men and women. Men appeared to be turned on most by a combination of smelling lavender and pumpkin pie, and women were aroused by Good and Plenty candy and cucumbers. Imagine that.
In the middle ages, men went even one step further than eating or smelling food. They would put mustard mixed with rosemary and honey on their genitals, which would increase the blood flow. It probably also stung like hell so I wouldn't recommend this treatment, but there are a lot of ways that food can help create a great sex drive.
Food isn't just great for your mind and body it can also be used to create a great sexual experience. Eat right, look better, and feel better, and I can assure you that you will have more great sex in your future. – Issued by Gay Link Content
