Food Fantasies: 8 Sexy Foods That Feed Your Libido

The distance from the kitchen table to the bedroom is just a kiss away with our tasty guide to mouth watering aphrodisiacs. Click through the list below. -- Nicole Brown


Chocolate: Rumor has it that legendary emperor Montezuma would consume massive amounts of cocoa beans to fuel his sexual escapades. Today, this creamy sweet has an arousing reputation for bringing lovers together. According to scientists, chocolate contains tryptophan, a building block of seratonin, which contributes to sexual jumpstarts. Although it has little effect, chocolate is still delicious to share in and out the bedroom.

Asparagus: Long, juicy and full of hormones? There's a reason your mother told you to eat those vegetables when you were a child. Asparagus is packed with nutrients and stimulates the genitourinary system (i.e. the reproductive organs). For maximum effect, hand feed these stems to each other.

Chiles: Spicy and sexy go together like peanut butter and jelly. Many cultures consider chiles arousing because of our physical reaction to it. Its main ingredient capsaicin increases heart rate, skin sensitivity and sweating--the same physical reactions that occur during sex. Its red pigment is also associated with heat and passion, resulting in a naughty reputation.

Figs: Hard on the outside and soft on the inside? Yes, there is more to the fig than meets the eye. Many claim that its juicy red flesh and honey nectar are what tempted Eve in biblical times instead of the apple. This plump fruit is also pumped with iron and potassium, both of which are essential to keeping up during the vertical tango.

Oysters: What better way to turn on your partner than with a visual teaser? This shellfish most closely represents the female organs with its oval shape and multiple layers. There is nothing he/she wants more than to see you enjoying this aphrodisiac. This slippery delicacy is also packed with zinc, which boosts progesterone levels.

Mangoes and Peaches: Getting turned on involves all of the senses, including smell. Both fruits smell and taste sweet, in addition to being healthy. Your man will go crazy as he watches you take a bite while the juices run down your hand. Add whipped cream, if you're nasty.

Avocado: First, let's clear up a common misconception. Avocado is a fruit. In fact, it's probably the only one that produces heart-healthy unsaturated fat so you don't feel guilty after. Coined the Chocolate of All Fruits, its sexy pear shape and soft texture are filled with vitamin E which give you lots of energy.

Basil: Technically, this isn't a food, but it adds pleasure where needed. Sprinkle this flavor booster on a romantic dinner to awaken all of the senses. It doesn't have the best taste, but its leaves carry nutrients that boost libido (vitamin C, potassium, magnesium).

Tinashe Resurfaces With Exciting Message: "I'm Back And Better"

Tinashe fans rejoice! After a hiatus, the Joyride artist resurfaced on Instagram Saturday (Sept. 28), in a brief video expressing that she's “back and better.”

After a tumultuous relationship with her label RCA, the singer-songwriter broke ties with the company. Since then, she's been hibernating in her “cave,” as she puts it.

"Creatively, I just feel like I needed to go through what I went through in order to be the person that I am today and to get back to my roots," she explained. "You pretty much put your heart and soul and emotions into all these songs and then you put them out there for the world to judge and tear down and pick apart. It's terrifying and it can really mess with your head."

In an interview with VIBE, Tinashe expressed how important it is for her to stay true to herself and artistry. “It’s not even necessarily speaking up but coming to your own conclusions yourself and owning your own instincts and trusting in yourself and creative power,” she said. “I think that’s something that is always important to continue to maintain. It’s easy for that sometimes to get derailed, and it’s important to come back to that.”

During her recent statement, she broke down the importance of art and how it should be expressed through individuality and free expression, sans any boxes or limitations. Making people happy through her music is the goal.

"Music and art are supposed to be these wonderful beautiful things that bring people joy and happiness, and that's really why I started making music in the first place—to give people something that means something to them,” she said.

Although Tinashe did not say when fans can expect new music, she did share a snippet of what she’s been working on in the studio in a separate post. “I’m too emotional.”
