5 Foods That Make You Horny

If you are looking to spice up your love life, head to the kitchen for these 5 foods that make you horny. Since ancient times, certain foods have been said to have aphrodisiac qualities. Modern science has shown that these foods contain nutrients essential for proper sexual function.

  1. Oysters. These shellfish have been considered and erotic food since the second century. Suck the oysters straight from the half shell or eat them raw off a cracker with a splash of hot sauce. Oysters are high in protein and zinc, which aids in production of testosterone.
  2. Chocolate. The Aztecs didn't call it "the nourishment of the Gods" for no reason. Chocolate contains stimulant compounds that effect the brain's neurotransmitters that give a sense of excitement. Dark chocolate contains the highest amounts of these stimulants, as well as heart healthy antioxidants.
  3. Figs. This ancient fruit was associated with love and fertility since the time of the Greeks. Cleopatra was also said to be a fan of this sexually stimulating fruit. Because the inside of a fig mimics the female anatomy, a man eating a fresh fig can send a strong signal to a lucky lady.
  4. Bananas. It isn't just their shape that give bananas a reputation as an aphrodisiac food. Banana contain potassium and B vitamins for muscle strength and enzymes that are said to increase the male sex drive.
  5. Avocado. This fruit was once thought to be sexy that it was forbidden by Spanish priests. The Aztec name “ahuacuatl” actually means "testicle tree." Avocados contain essential fatty acids, potassium and vitamin E, all which assist with blood flow and hormone production.
