6 Fall Foods Great for Your Sex Life

Whether you already do your best to eat seasonally … or just need a good reason to start, this roundup of in-season fall foods will give you more incentive: they all happen to be great for your libido and sexual health, too! Does making your grocery list count as foreplay?

Sweet Potatoes

As if you needed another reason to crave this Thanksgiving staple all year long. Sweet potatoes are packed with potassium, which helps fight high blood pressure—a major plus, since high blood pressure is associated with a higher risk of erectile disfunction. They’re also rich in vitamin A, which is said to help boost fertility.

Pomegranate

A glass per day of fresh juice from this super-food can do wonders if you’re battling erectile dysfunction—its high anti-oxidant content helps prevent free radical molecules from disrupting circulation to your genitals.

Brussels Sprouts

The food you avoided as a kid has proven to have serious health benefits—it contains indole-3-carbinol, a compound that reduces estrogen levels in the body, giving men a great libido boost. (Try this perfect Brussels sprouts recipe.)

Pumpkin Seeds

No oysters in the fridge? Pumpkin seeds will do the trick. They’re packed with zinc, which pumps up the female sex drive. They’re rich in omega 3 essential fatty acids, which, among a ton of other benefits, keep your libido healthy.

Apples

An apple a day helps make for a great lay… oh, is that not how the saying goes? Well, either way, it’s true: Apples contain quercertin, a flavanoid that helps to prevent prostate and prostate cancer cell growth.

Cranberries

A lot of women already swill a glass of cranberry juice daily to help ward off urinary tract infections after sex, but it’s good for men, too. It’s full of vitamin B, necessary for hormone balance, and vitamin C, which is thought to help with healthy sperm function.

I can't help thinking that the sprouts' flatulent side effects might diminish their aphrodisiac potential. Take no notice, Teresa :)
