Real Relationship Advice
Food is more than just sustenance. Today’s society has elevated the eating experience to rival the most erotic experience. So, where does the link between food and sex lie? Scientists are still undecided whether any food truly has aphrodisiac qualities. Some people swear by their experiences. Ultimately, there is a dearth of information on foods and their libidinous side effects. CoupleDumb, in honor of our support of a healthy love life, will share some we agree with.
Wine: Those of us who enjoy a glass of wine know that the fermented grape gives us more than a pleasant palate experience and a slight buzz. Wine is also recommended for people who suffer from back spasms. Wine has a unique ability to relax muscles and is said to arouse the nether naughty bits. Too much, and you fall asleep. Keep it to one or two glasses and you should be golden. PREFERENCES: Champagne may tickle your nose but it also has been known to cause nakedness around these parts.
Garlic: The heat of the garlic is said to stir sexual desire. When both partake in the stinky flower, you have a recipe for yumminess. For those of you who are so concerned with their breath that they avoid garlic or any food that may affect your breath, we can recommend a nice hovel to live in where you can catalog your socks. Garlic is delicious and makes any dish better. So stink it up! PREFERENCES: Kissing after a garlicy meal.
Basil: Basil is said to stimulate sex drive and fertility. We don’t know about the fertility part but the flavor of fresh basil is exciting for the whole tongue. It is sweet and savory and enhances whatever you are eating. Eaten raw or cooked in sauces, basil is the perfect mate. Basil is also known to produce a sense of well being. What better time to get intimate than when you are feeling really good? PREFERENCES: We have fresh basil always planted in our yard. It is a hardy herb and it can be ridiculous expensive at the super market.
Avocado: Everything tastes better with avocado. The Aztecs actually called the avocado tree the testicle tree because of the shape of the fruit. “Ahuacuatl” is said to be an aphrodisiac because of its sensuous texture. Avocado is packed with vitamins A and E which aid in energy and has been used to treat erectile dysfunction. PREFERENCES: Slicing an avocado on an omelet, sandwich, cereal, open hand…we love avocado. We even thought of naming one of our kids Haas.
Pineapple: Did you know that pineapple is a homeopathic remedy for impotence? Pineapple is rich in vitamin C and has been known to cause spontaneous erections. PREFERENCES: Take pineapple and rum and make yourself a lovely cocktail. Pour it over ice with a spritz of club soda.
Chocolate: What can we say? Chocolate makes you feel great. Have you noticed when you feel well and get enough sleep you are a little randier? Is it just us? Chocolate has that affect on people. From the sensual texture to the full mouthed assault of deliciousness, chocolate screams sex! PREFERENCE: Dark chocolate tends to have more of the aphrodisiac qualities. For a very sexy evening, have a glass of merlot with a chunk of dark chocolate.
We don’t know about you but we’re hungry now. Perhaps some avocado vinaigrette with garlic and basil with a lovely pineapple cocktail sounds yummy.
