In the Mood with Food

30326298Hello, my sweets. Welcome to my new blog! For your first little morsel, here are the top ten edible aphrodisiacs and their yummy descriptions as listed on Take off your clothes, put on an apron and get cookin'.

1. CHILE PEPPERS: While lips swell and tongues tingle, the chili heat sets to work releasing endorphins, the primary pleasure enzyme.

2. OYSTERS: The oyster's salty and sweet aromas are not dissimilar to TMA, the most potent female pheromone. In addition, oysters are high in zinc, a vital nutrient for optimizing blood flow to a certain nether region.

3. JASMINE: Deliciously fragrant, jasmine is a decidedly delicate aphrodisiac. Although its seeds can be poisonous, the flowers produce a sweet fragrance, arousing to both sexes.

4. GINGER: Although it is commonly used to aid digestion, served pickled, candied or in the raw, ginger increases sensitivity in the erogenous zones.

5. HONEY: The nectar of Aphrodite, this all-natural sweetener is at the root of the term “honeymoon.”

6. CHOCOLATE: Of course! Sip creamy hot chocolate for its modest caffeine charge or nibble on a dark morsel for its serotonin boost.

7. CHAMPAGNE: While all wine is considered an arousing social lubricant, the giddy stream of effervescence surging from the bottom of the champagne glass puts bubbly on the top of the liquid aphrodisiac list.

8. TRUFFLE MUSHROOMS: A delicacy rich in history and lore, the truffle is the prime example of the power of persuasion. While little scientific evidence explains their appeal, truffles are embraced as a catalyst for sexual desire.

9. CHEESE: Though dairy does not typically evoke an air of sensuality, when transformed into cheese by artisan hands, this dairy treat becomes a potent emblem of lush. Its high content of PEA, phenyl ethylamine, is believed to release the same rush of hormones as does the act of intercourse.

10. EGGS: The ultimate symbol of fertility, eggs (from caviar and quails eggs to the common chicken egg) offer a slippery, sticky kind of libido enhancement. Try them soft scrambled or lapped, raw, from your lover's belly button.
