Sex & Food – What’s The Connection?

By  |  0 Comments

Can different types of foods put the pep back in your love life?

Strong healthy relationships are fuelled by an intense intimacy, both emotional and physical.

There are times in some relationships when intimacy is far reaching. When a deep commitment is present, taking the time to learn ways of rekindling or rediscovering intimacy will reap awe-inspiring rewards.

Surprisingly, many find their magic potion in food.

For centuries and in many cultures around the world, many different foods, drinks, herbs and spices have been considered aphrodisiacs with the sole purpose of increasing one’s sexual desire leading to heightened romantic intimacy.

The dictionary describes aphrodisiac (noun) as: • a food, drink, or drug that stimulates sexual desire: the Romans worshiped the apple as an aphrodisiac with aphrodisiac powers; • a thing that causes excitement.

If you want to want to share a romantic (aphrodisiac-laced) meal with your partner in the privacy of your home, this month I offer some great suggestions. Keep in mind that we want to use foods that are healthy and alive with nutrients, vitamins and minerals. We start the menu off slowly pre-paring for the next course.

Chocolate Mousse

Chocolate Mousse

First Course: Italian sparkling water or champagne with sweet hibiscus flower

Clean Italian sparkling water or champagne prepares the pallet for romantic foods. The Hibiscus flower is representative of delicate beauty and the love one shares with another.

Second Course: Nutmeg Vanilla Cream Cheese filled strawberries dipped in dark chocolate.

Nutmeg is well known for its medicine properties. However, the spice is embraced more for its sensual properties as a stimulant in raising body heat and sweetening breath. Touted as a sex-inspiring fruit by ancient Romans, the strawberry was a symbol of the Goddess Venus.

Chocolate has been proven to increase energy levels and release ‘feel good’ endorphins. The Aztecs used vanilla mixed with chocolate which they gave credit to for enhancing their libidos.

Third Course: Caesar Salad with Herb Croutons & Kitchens of Distinction signature garlic dressing. Garlic has been proven to be immune boosting making those who eat it feel more energetic and healthy.

Fourth Course: Velvet Asparagus Soup features a phallic symbol with aphrodisiac chemicals. Asparagus is rich in potassium, folic acid, vitamin A and vitamin E. It is known to amazingly stimulate sex hormones, glandular function and overall well-being.

Surprise your partner with an aphrodisiac inspired dinner. You’ll never look at food the same way again!
