If you’re reading this article right now then it’s obvious that you have love making on your mind. But hold on a moment. Because instead of love making for thought, we want you to have some food for thought! Why? Because as you’ve probably guessed by now, we’re going to enlighten you on the right and wrong foods for love making. And yes, food does play an extremely important role in your love making life and could be the making or the breaking of a good intercourse. The problem is that food is such a crucial part of our daily routine that we don’t realise how it can negatively impact another crucial part of our life – love making! So, whether you eat to live or live to eat, here are foods that are good and bad for you when you’re under the sheet. 

Bananas

Besides being an amazing love making emoji, bananas are also excellent when it comes to increasing your libido, which is enhanced by the bromelain enzyme in the fruit. Its potassium and vitamin B content also helps in increasing your energy. Apeeling, no?

Avocado

The ancient Aztecs referred to avocados as the ‘testicle tree’ and with good reason as they contain high levels of folic acid, which helps increase energy as well as vitamin B6, which increases male hormone reproduction. So, you might want to do it with a little help from an avocado! 

Chocolate

Chocolate is desirable in more ways than one as it contains phenylethylamine - a chemical that enhances the feeling of attraction. And if you wish to bring in a chocolate aspect to your lovemaking, our chocolate flavoured condoms will help you do just that while leaving a sweet taste in your mouth. 

Oysters

Oysters are extremely rich in zinc, which helps increase the sperm count and testosterone production in males as well as dopamine – a hormone that surges one’s libido. So, much on a couple of oysters and stir things up in the bedroom. 

Garlic

Garlic contains allicin, which increases blood flow to the love making organs, enabling you to get up and running quickly. You might want to use a little mouthwash before getting into the thick of things, though as garlic has a horrendous smell, one that isn’t desirable in bed.

French Fries

Fries before guys may be great, but fries before love making is a big no, no! The trans-fat in fries can have a serious impact on testosterone levels while their high salt content makes it extremely tough for men with high blood pressure to achieve a long erection. So, say no to junk food before getting your junk into action.  

Mint

Awesome breath may be a huge turn on, but the menthol in mint has been proven to seriously impact testosterone levels. So, you might want to switch to healthier alternatives like mouth wash before hitting the sheets. 

Beer

A big golden glass of chilled beer can really hit the spot but NOT right before hitting the sheets. As amazing as it is, beer contains a massive amount of gas which causes you to bloat, something that you don’t want to be doing before you get busy with your partner. 

Coffee

True, coffee is perfectly capable of keeping you up all night in order for you to get lucky, but you must understand that everyone reacts differently to coffee, with the beverage causing individuals to get jittery and anxious if they consume large quantities. So, you might want to reconsider that pre-coital cuppa.

This, boys and girls, is where we sign off. We’re sure that you have a pretty good idea of what foods you should and shouldn’t eat before it comes to ‘dessert’! And for starters, don’t forget to use a condom. Until the next time 😊.
