What We Eat Can Greatly Affect Our Sex Lives - Think About This!
Have you ever noticed that when you or your spouse are tired you are rarely in the mood for sex. This seems to be especially true of women. When they are tired the answer is almost always NO! And these days with many women having to work outside the home plus juggle family activities and housework it is no wonder by the time bed rolls around she is ready to roll over and go to sleep.

Aphrodisiacs and Love Foods
Consider the awesome power of the mind. Have you heard of placebos, I know you have. The work often times because people believe they will. Some aphrodisiacs work simply because you believe they will. Your brain is in effect your greatest sex organ. If the brain thinks some food turns you into a sex machine, it will. So if you believe buffalo chips will fire up your sex drive, chances are they will.
Oysters are a well-known aphrodisiac. Oysters are packed with zinc, so if you are zinc deficient, oysters may help you feel sexy.
Serotonin is a chemical the brain produces that can boost your sexual desire. Stress lowers the levels of serotonin. Some studies have shown low levels of serotonin are linked to poor ejaculation and low sperm count. A combination of foods containing the amino acid tryptophan and certain carbohydrates can reduce stress and increase levels of serotonin. For example 4 - 6 ounces of fish, poultry or lean beef with bread or pasta.
Androsterone, a potent male hormone, is thought to attract females, and is found in celery. Researchers speculate that when you eat celery, you can release the androsterone through perspiration after digestion. Women can't typically smell this, but some things are sensed subconsciously and women can be attracted to this.
Also the smell of pumpkin pie can increase blood flow to the penis according to a study.
With all this focus on foods and nutrition remember that the most important attribute is to pay attention to your partner. This can be the most powerful tool for putting your partner in the mood for great sex.
