Gay food helps with sex

If you don’t want to be a dud root in the scratcher then consider eating gay food.

Want an extra boost in the bedroom? Load up your trolley with these all-natural aphrodisiacs.

For centuries man has attempted to boost his sex drive with potions, lotions and pills. If you’ve lost that loving feeling, the answer to increasing your sexual appetite might not be locked away in your underwear drawer or medicine cabinet but found down the supermarket aisle. Certain foods contain specific enzymes and vitamins that increase circulation, stimulation and the production of hormones linked to increased sexual drive and stamina.

?There are many factors that can affect your sex drive including the foods we eat,” says Sydney naturopath and nutritionist Lisa Guy, who wrote?The Art of Healing. “Eating a variety of wholesome foods with natural libido-enhancing properties, may be just what you need to spice things up in the bedroom. Whether it’s a food that lifts your mood, calms you down, or stimulates your circulation, they can help contribute to a healthier sex life.??

Their suggestions are all pretty gay.

Pumpkin seeds:??Sunflower and pumpkin seeds are packed with zinc, which is one of the most important minerals when it comes to reproductive health. [It’s] especially important for sperm health, boosting testosterone levels,? recommends Guy.

Basil:?Since Italian courtesans created perfume from basil powder and oil to attract the opposite sex, this herb’s aroma has been associated with arousal. ?Basil is also a circulation booster,? explains Guy.

Porridge oats:?Plenty of us wake up to a bowl of piping hot porridge without being aware of its sexual potency. Research has found?oats help to unlock testosterone production?in the body.

Garlic:?It might not aid getting into bed but once there, chopped garlic will get blood flowing as it’s packed with the compound allicin. ?This helps stimulate blood flow to your sexual organs,? reveals Guy.

Honey:?In ancient Persia, couples drank honey mead (an alcoholic drink made from honey) every day for a month after they married to get them in the mood for love (known as the honeymoon). The fructose content aids stamina and provides a slow and steady release of energy.

Chillies:?Turn up the heat with a massive dose of capsaicin, a chemical which releases mood-enhancing endorphins and increases blood flow and the heart rate to stimulate nerve endings. ?Adding chillies to meals is a great way to naturally spice things up,? recommends Guy.

Avocado:?The avocado’s phallic shape was not lost on the Aztecs, who called this fruit tree the “testicle tree”. Guy reveals, ?High in vitamin B6 which boosts male libido and also potassium, which regulates the female thyroid, avocados are rich in folic acids and healthy heart fats.?

Watermelon:?Although it’s 92 per cent water, the remaining 8 per cent of this juicy fruit is jam-packed with vital nutrients for sexual health. Both the rind and flesh have amino acid citrulline, which relaxes the blood vessels and increases blood flow to the genitals, the same effect as Viagra without a prescription.

Dark chocolate:?Chocolate with high cacao levels has the compound phenylethylamine, the “love drug”, which quickens the pulse and tricks the brain into thinking it’s falling in love. A study by the?Journal of Sexual Medicine?found women who ate?a single piece of chocolate every day enjoyed a more active sex life?than those who didn’t. ?Go for at least 70 per cent cocoa solids or ‘raw chocolate’ which is also rich in powerful antioxidants,? encourages Guy.

Celery:?This vegetable boosts production of androsterone, the odourless hormone released via male perspiration, which acts as a pheromone to turn women on. ?Celery also contains chemicals that can help dilate blood vessels and enhance climax,? says Guy. Food for thought.

Yuck…especially celery…only brussels sprouts and coriander are worse in my book.
