Food and sex are erotically linked, according to a study on food and sex conducted by Maryanne Fisher, an associate psychology professor at Saint Mary’s University. Just like sex, eating uses all of ones senses. According to Fisher, when you combine the two, sensations might be heightened.
Henceforth, a good way to spice up a relationship is by brining some food into the mix. As time obsessed New Yorkers the pure notion of time inhibits one to indulge in the moment. Sex is an activity that ought to be savored and luxuriated in, not rushed.
Incorporating food will lessen the possibility of falling into a routine. It will also help provide the energy and stamina that sex requires, ensuring an amazing sexual encounter and creating a more open and playful atmosphere.
Aphrodisiacs predate ancient Greece, but Aphrodite, goddess of sexuality, fertility and love, is the root of the coined word. An aphrodisiac is “any of the various forms of stimulation thought to arouse sexual excitement,” according to Encyclopedia Britannica.
Both sex and food are basic human foundations. Yet most students forget the importance of healthy nutrition and see no need for fruits or spices since ramen bowls are apparently sufficient.
The way to any girl’s heart is chocolate and with good reason. Since the 1600s chocolate has been thought to be an aphrodisiac, so much so that religious leaders banned monks and nuns from consuming any!
According to Fisher, chocolate contains the chemical PEA, which creates a rush or feeling of euphoria, releasing the neurotransmitter dopamine usually released during all sorts of “highs” including orgasms, gambling, and drug use.
Dark chocolate contains the most PEA and antioxidants. Apples, avocados, aniseeds, fennels, tomatoes, almonds, and cheddar cheese also increase PEA.
According to Fisher, the smell of almonds alone can increase a woman’s sex drive and its consumption dually improves heart health. Plus all of these aphrodisiacs are easily attainable on a college student budget and will encourage the nutritional daily consumption of foods that are healthier than ramen noodles.
While food can spice up your sex-life it is important to note that different people have different tolerances for spices and temperatures. Proceed with caution with products that contain higher concentrations of cinnamon, menthol, cloves, or mint because at times these spices cause stronger than intended sensations. Also make sure that your partner isn’t allergic to any of the food you use.
While whip cream is not an aphrodisiac, it has received a cultural connotation of a sex prop for oral sex. Yet this prop is definitely misused.
Whip cream can be more fun if one lets one’s lover place the cream where they might want to be licked and ergo discovering their favorite erogenous zones.
A thing to remember about the top two sex indulgents, chocolate and whipped cream, is that they’re messy and that sugar and oily foods eat right through condoms and propagate bacteria.
Other sexual stimulants to consider are coffee, figs, pomegranates, bananas, raw celery, and raw oysters.
Through literature fruits such as strawberries, grapes, and raspberries have acquired an inviting and erotic appeal as fruit nipples to feed one’s lover, just recall Julius Cesar from literature class. The nipple fruits you use should be big enough, easy to grab and wider at one end in order to avoid a night in the emergency room.
Other food for thought is the improvement of the taste of semen. Cardamom, peppermint, lemon, and especially pineapple are known to decrease the sour taste of semen. Garlic and onions, on the other-hand, are thought to cause semen to taste unpleasant.
A final important point to consider as students is the maintenance of an overall healthy diet. According to Chris Meletis, N.D., chief medical officer at the National College of Naturopathic Medicine, “the dietary ingredients for a lifetime of wonderful sex include a variety of fresh, wholesome fruits and vegetables, multivitamins and lean proteins (shellfish and lean meats such as chicken and turkey).”
Indulge in food, have fun with it and maintain a healthy diet beacuse not only will it improve your sex life but it will improve your overall productivity in all matters.
