'Aphrodite' is the Greek goddess of sexuality and love.  Therefore, aphrodisiac foods refer to those foods capable of stimulating the sex drive and boosting sexual performance.

If you are one of those men suffering from bedroom blues, then it’s the time to modify your diet. A lot of men suffer from lack of sexual enthusiasm because they aren’t consuming foods that would pump up that male hormone-testosterone.

 So we are here to tell you what aphrodisiacs you must eat to have an ever-lasting and satisfying sex life.

From the ocean

Oyster, clams, scallops, lobster

Dr Rosofsky says, “The connection of oysters to aphrodite is because of their texture, shape, and their nutrients,". And there’s nothing to deny... Sea foods are loaded with zinc which increases production of testosterone. So men out there, enjoy slurping some oysters or feast on a lobster with your girl tonight.

Visually provocative foods 

Asparagus, celery

Leave the nutrition apart, asparagus and celery are sensuous foods with an aphrodisiac effect. Many couples enjoy that nibbling on the stick for sexual excitement. You must consider having them because they are rich in vitamin E as well.  


Since ancient times, bananas have been used as an aphrodisiac due to its phallic shape. However the practical fact is- they are enriched with potassium and B group vitamins which increase sex hormones in your body and elevate your mood and desire.

Avocadoes, figs, apricots, almonds

Avocado, figs, almonds, and apricots are pulpy and juicy and their appearance itself acts as a stimulant for sex. Being enriched with magnesium and vitamin E, these seedy fruits are wonderful aphrodisiacs for men.

Erotic fruits and vegetables

Watermelon, pomegranate, black grapes, strawberries, oranges

All the aforementioned fruits are natural replacements for Viagra. Watermelon contains citrulline which helps in blood vessel dilation necessary for heightened sexual pleasure. Apart from that, all these fruits are laden with vitamin C which enhances libido and performance.  


A glass of fresh beetroot juice is all needed to spark romance in your life. Beetroot contains boron which boosts production of sex hormones and the nitrates help in increased blood flow to the genitals.

Sweets and flavours

Dark chocolates

To enjoy steamy sex, get playful with dark chocolates. You can also indulge in intimate moments with some chocolate smoothies and chocolate shots.


...And why to miss on flavours? Vanilla is the best essence for aphrodisiacs. Sip some hot vanilla flavoured milk before hitting on bed.
Red wine

Drinking red wine with your partner amid romantic ambiance is essentially erotic and sensuous. It relaxes your senses and sets you in a passionate mood.

From spices and herbs

Chile peppers

They are hot and spicy- the perfect aphrodisiac for men. Red chilli pepper makes you sweat and enhances your heart rate, which is definitely needed for long lasting intercourse. Furthermore, they signal the brain to secrete endorphins which are nothing but pleasure hormones needed for experiencing the joy of the act.

Sweet basil, Ashwagandha, saffron

You can always indulge in these herbs either as tea or tincture to arouse yourself for some good romance.

Enjoy these aphrodisiacs to bring a difference in your love life!
