The Better-Sex Diet

The Better-Sex Diet

Want stronger orgasms and a higher libido? Start with your nutrition. No—you don’t have to eat oysters for three meals a day (they’re awkward to eat at your office desk anyway). But you can kickstart your libido and improve your sexual health with these meals… dessert included!

 

BREAKFAST: Oatmeal with Flaxseed & Nuts

Okay, so sensuously feeding your partner spoonfuls of mushy oatmeal doesn’t really paint a sexy picture (OR DOES IT), but it does contain avenacoside, a nutrient that keeps a healthy supply of testosterone—a libido-booster—in your system. Flax helps with testosterone levels too, and contains a rich supply of lignans to boot, helping combat vaginal dryness.

Add in walnuts, pine nuts, and almonds for an extra boost—they all contain l-arginine, an amino acid that increases blood flow to the genitals, enhancing arousal and orgasms.

 

DRINK: Coffee with Nutmeg

Whether you go regular or decaf, add a pinch of nutmeg to your morning brew—it’s said to be an aphrodisiac, stimulating nerve cells and blood circulation, which boosts sexual desire. (Psst, it’s also great in tea, egg nog, and hot chocolate.)

 

LUNCH: Salmon & Asparagus

Salmon is one of the best sources of omega-3 fatty acids, which are essential for good circulation—a must for maintaining erections and improving clitoral stimulation.

And asparagus on the side does way more than make your pee smell funny. It also helps your body circulate hormones like testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone, which help stimulate sexual responses like vaginal lubrication and clitoral swelling.

 

SNACK: Watermelon

The sweet fruit contains l-citrulline, an amino acid that helps dilate blood vessels, increasing blood flow to the genitals.

 

DINNER: Lobster

What’s sexier than wearing lobster bibs together over candlelight? Not only that, but lobster is also packed with zinc, which has been linked to a healthy male libido, and phosphorous, which boosts both male and female sex drives. Its concentration of fatty acids may also increase sensitivity in the sex organs.

 

DRINK: Fresh-Squeezed Orange or Grapefruit Juice

You know what they say, an apple a day keep the doctor away, and a grapefruit a day is good for the genitals! Oh, that’s not how it goes? Either way, citrus fruits are packed with folic aid, antioxidants, and vitamin C, all of which are great for men’s reproductive health.

 

DESSERT: Chocolate-Dipped Bananas

Their phallic shape is just a bonus—bananas are rich in potassium, an essential nutrient for muscle strength…which can mean stronger muscle contractions during orgasm. They’re also loaded with stuff good for the male libido, like B vitamins and magnesium.

Dip them in chocolate for double the fun—chocolate contains phenylethylamine, a compound that releases endorphins and leads to feelings of increased excitement.
