You Will Need
- Crushed pecans
- Pumpkin pie, doughnuts, or anise cake
- Ginseng tea
- Brie cheese
- Cinnamon buns
Put out salami and cheese
Start with a platter of salami and cheese as nibbles. Both contain phenylethylamine, the euphoria-inducing chemical your body produces when you fall in love.
Start with oysters
Serve oysters as the first course. They’re loaded with zinc, which may increase testosterone levels and promote vaginal lubrication.
Prepare salmon, tuna, catfish, flounder, grouper, cod, or snapper as the entree. All are high in L-arginine, an amino acid that may boost sexual function. Sprinkle on some crushed pecans to add a dose of zinc.
Serve sensual sides
Serve sensual side dishes that you can eat with your fingers, visually stimulating your partner. Try asparagus dressed with butter, almond-stuffed figs, or a whole artichoke.
Choose the right dessert
End the meal with pumpkin pie or doughnuts if your guest is male. If you’re entertaining a female, serve a dessert that smells like licorice, such as anise cake. Studies have indicated these aromas increase blood flow south in the respective sexes.
Serve ginseng tea with dessert instead of coffee. Some Asian cultures traditionally prescribe ginseng as a sex-drive enhancer.
Offer some chocolate
Open a box of chocolates. Besides containing the love chemical PEA, chocolate has a small amount of cannabinoids, the same chemical compounds that give marijuana its relaxing properties. Is there a tastier way to put you both in the mood?
