Aphrodisiacs stimulate sexual desire, and one of the strongest happens to be food. It can add serious sizzle to your sex life. Aphrodisiacs affect no two people alike. So to see what works best for you, you may need to experiment with your lust for love.


Several qualities make chocolate a potent aphrodisiac. First of all, it contains more antioxidants than red wine, as well as "the love chemical" PEA (phenylethylamine). PEA helps release the feel-good chemical dopamine in the brain, and dopamine may induce arousal - even euphoria. Chocolate also contains tryptophan, a chemical that promotes comfort and lowers inhibitions.


Extracts of licorice have been used in holistic medicine for centuries. This food can relieve ulcers, rheumatism, arthritis, constipation, menopause symptoms, night sweats, and much more. Naturally, just as it can treat physical ailments, licorice can inspire lust. The smell alone greatly increases blood flow to the genitals. Women seem to be more affected by licorice than men.
