If you had to choose between eating a rich piece of chocolate cake and having mind-blowing playtime, which would you pick?
If you're finding it a tough call, here's why: Food and sex are two of the strongest and most closely linked human desires.
The satisfaction from eating a delicious meal and the satisfaction from having sex both activate pleasure receptors in the brain.
This explains why we humans often associate eating with sex.
And while the notion of aphrodisiacs is largely unfounded, there are certain foods that can energize you, trigger your libido, and give you stronger orgasms.
We all know sex is big business.
It seems that men have an insatiable appetite for anything that might give them a little bit of an edge...a slightly better experience.
Well, they have half the formula right: appetite.
If you’re looking for natural ways to enhance your sex life, then, ladies and gentlemen, start with your dinner plate.
Because there are super foods out there that will do you more good than a truckload of vacuum pumps and pheromone sprays.
So, let's get right to it, shall we.
Number one on "our" sex-for-life plan is;
Oysters ~ The Truth
The old saying is that eating oysters will make you a better lover.
What isn’t so old is the discovery that oysters actually can make you a better lover!
You can’t eat them at lunch and expect to qualify for the sexual Olympics tonight...but the power of oysters is backed by solid science.
You see, oysters contain lots of zinc.
In fact, just 6 medium oysters contain 40 mcg. of zinc, almost three-quarters of a man’s DV (Daily Value).
No other food we know of even comes close.
And zinc is important because it’s key to prostate health.
Not long ago, scientists working at the University of Maryland discovered that zinc plays a critical role in regulating prostate growth.
Zinc helps prevent the kind of uncontrolled prostate growth that can ruin both your urinary health and your sex life.
Zinc is also necessary for normal sperm development.
And when the VA gave a zinc supplement to men with low levels of this important mineral, their sex lives were, in the researcher’s words, “strikingly improved.”
So go ahead and eat oysters.
They’re a good start towards building a more satisfying sex life.
Next on "our" sex-for-life plan is;
I'm thinking this one will surprise you, I certainly was.
Stop stalking, start seducing.
It's stringy and tastes like crunchy water, but celery is the swizzle stick that can stir up your
Every stalk of the stuff is packed with androstenone and androstenol, two pheromones that can help men attract women the way honey attracts bears.
(Don't worry, these steroids are different from the steroid androstenedione.)
Believe it or not, when you chew a stalk of celery, you release androstenone and androstenol odor molecules into your mouth.
They then travel up the back of your throat to your nose.
Once there, the pheromones boost your arousal, turning you on and causing your body to send off scents and signals that make men more desirable to women.
Try it next time you're in a bar or restaurant.
Grab the celery from your Bloody Mary or Caesar and munch away.
The pheromones take effect immediately, so you should notice the women around you paying more attention to you right away.
Celery is a sex-for-life, low-calorie, high-fiber food, so you can eat as much as you want and not regret it later.
And men, to keep your sperm healthy, try this delicious sex-for-life booster…
Salmon – More Than Just a Biology Lesson
Salmon are the classic example of sex drive.
To spawn, they swim, against all odds, back to the stream where they hatched.
And most of them die there...or on the way.
But when it comes to sex, salmon are a lot more than just a biology lesson.
Salmon are loaded with the mineral selenium.
Without selenium, your body can’t produce healthy sperm.
It’s also a component of a form of glutathione, a powerful antioxidant, that helps protect your “little guys” from free radical attack.
Just how powerful is selenium?
Scottish scientists tested it on a group of men with fertility issues.
More than half of the test subjects showed measurable improvement within three months, while the control group actually got worse.
I recommend eating wild-caught salmon, which is also high in heart-healthy Omega 3 fatty acids.
You probably wouldn’t connect the next suggestion to better sex.
But you will when you realize it contains a nutrient that’s key for your enjoyment.
Next on "our" sex-for-life plan is;
Vanilla Ice Cream
Bowl her over with your endurance.
When it comes to intimacy, ice cream is endurance food.
It has high levels of calcium and phosphorus, two minerals that build your muscles' energy reserves and boost your libido.
All that calcium (200 milligrams in the typical bowl) can also make your orgasms more powerful, since the muscles that control ejaculation need calcium in order to spasm and contract properly.
Just choose vanilla over Cherry Swirl.
A study conducted at Chicago's Smell and Taste Treatment and Research Foundation found that when men smell the scent of vanilla, it relaxes them, reducing anxiety and inhibitions.
Next on "our" sex-for-life plan is;
Shape up your swimmers.
Cigarette smoke, air pollution, and other toxins in the air can damage a man's sperm, altering the DNA inside his cells and possibly increasing your child's risk of birth defects.
Your best bet for fighting these pollutants?
Call in the Brazilians.
Brazil nuts are a top source of selenium , a vitamin that helps keep sperm cells healthy while also helping those little fellers swim faster.
When researchers in the United Kingdom had men with fertility problems increase their selenium intake, the men produced hardier, more viable sperm cells.
And, up next on "our" sex-for-life diet plan is;
Boost your sperm count when it counts.
It doesn't sound sexy, but ounce for ounce there are few better sources of fertility-boosting, sex-for-life vitamin-A, than liver.
Studies show that men who get plenty of A each day have higher sperm counts and perform better, than men who don't.
When your body's low on A, your sperm production goes down dramatically.
Liver is also an excellent source of zinc as well.
Your body expels 5 milligrams of zinc, a third of your daily requirement, every time you ejaculate, so a single amorous weekend could leave your body's zinc reserves running on empty.
Next up on "our" sex-for-life plan is;
Really shake her tree.
Oranges get the good press as a vitamin-C source, but frozen peaches are the better choice on the sex-for-life diet plan because men who don't take in enough vitamin-C produce lower-quality sperm.
University of Texas researchers found that men who consumed at least 200 milligrams of vitamin-C a day had higher sperm counts than men who took in less.
Vitamin-C also keeps your sperm from clumping, so the boys have a better chance of reaching her egg.
Keep a bag of frozen peach slices, they have more C than fresh ones do, in your freezer to dump in smoothies or add to your morning cereal.
A single cup of the fruit has more than twice your daily vitamin-C requirement.

Better Sex – That’s No Bull
Beef has gotten a bad rap over the last several years.
It’s been linked to a lot of health problems.
Of course, we’re talking about fatty, grain-fed, antibiotic-laced beef.
Grass-fed beef, raised without antibiotics and artificial hormones, is another story.
And a good story it is, too.
Beef is an excellent source of L-arginine.
This amino acid is a vasodilator.
That is, it increases blood flow.
And you know how important blood flow is to good sex.
L-arginine gives you this boost by promoting the production of nitric oxide (NO), which relaxes blood vessel walls, allowing blood to flow more freely.
Like wild-caught salmon, grass-fed beef is also a good source of healthy Omega 3 fatty acids.
So you get improved blood flow plus extra heart protection, all in one package.
And, next on "our" sex-for-life plan is;
Get some erection protection.
Mother Nature's original blue potency capsule may do even more for you.
Blueberries are one of the best foods for older men with erectile problems.
They're loaded with soluble fiber, which helps push excess cholesterol through your digestive system before it can be broken down, absorbed, and deposited along the walls of your arteries.
They're also packed with compounds that help relax your blood vessels, improving circulation.
The benefit of lower cholesterol and better blood flow?
More blood to the penis and stronger erections as you grow older.
For maximum potency and performance, we recommend eating a serving of blueberries (fresh or blended into a drink) at least three or four times a week.
And, another to consider on "our" sex-for-life diet plan is;
Put some snap, crackle, and pop into your bedroom.
Too pooped to putter?
Too tired to tinker?
Check the label on your morning cereal and make sure you're eating a brand loaded with thiamin and riboflavin.
Both vitamins help you use energy efficiently, so you'll stop falling asleep in the recliner while watching the television.
Thiamin and riboflavin are also vital for the nervous system to function properly.
Better nerve function translates into more stimulation and pleasure during intimacy.
As we get older, our body has a harder time absorbing the vitamins that keep our nervous system operating at its peak, so we often need to increase our intake.
Fortified breads and cereals are also high in niacin, a vitamin that's essential for the secretion of histamine, a chemical our body needs in order to trigger explosive sneezes and orgasms.
And, last but certainly not least on "our" sex-for-life plan is;
Ah yes, you were probably hoping chocolate would be on the sex-for-life list.
After your steak, finish the evening with a couple of pieces of dark chocolate.
The cocoa in chocolate contains methylxanthines, stimulants that increase our body's sensitivity, ensuring that our skin registers even the slightest touch or movement against it.
Chocolate also contains phenylethylamine, a chemical that can give you a slight natural high.
For many people, the feeling is similar to the sensations you experience when you first fall in love.
So there you have it.
Our Sex-for-life Diet plan and list of Super Sexy Superfoods.
The Bottom Line on "our" sex-for-life plan is;
No food will instantly turn you into a Hollywood leading man.
But making delicious and healthy choices, can certainly move you in the right direction.
Eaten in moderation, all these foods are healthy.
A “serving” of protein is three ounces.
That’s about the size of a deck of playing cards.
With lean cuts, you’ll get loads of nutrition, and a satisfying meal, without having to worry about fat, calories or other diet issues.
And, of course, with these great sex-boosting nutrients, you’ll be getting a little something extra, too.Tweet
