Web MD suggests that certain foods can increase sexual desires, although — they might not suddenly make you want to rip each other’s clothes and get in bed. Instead, these foods will trigger the mind into thinking that they appear sexy, making you feel more attracted to your date. Sound familiar?

Elaine Magee, MPH, RD writes, “No food has been scientifically proven to stimulate sex organs. But the appearance and the act of eating can suggest sex to the mind, which in turn can help stimulate desire in your body. Besides, it certainly doesn’t hurt to enjoy food that you and your partner find sensual!”

The first thing that pops into mind when it comes to aphrodisiacs would often be oysters. But there’s actually plenty of other consumables that’ll make you hungry for your honey and turn you on for the night:

Oh yeah, it’s good because celery contains androsterone, which stimulates pheromone production. Pheromone is a chemical substance that’s released by animals and affects the behaviour or physiology to others of its species. In other words, your scent sends out signals which can affect the attraction of people around you. According to Dr. Oz, “Once ‘smelled,’ pheromones can subconsciously affect the behavior of the receiving mate.” That’s a pretty good reason to eat celery even if it doesn’t taste good!
