Sex and Food

We (mostly) all agree that eating healthy is a good thing. But what does it have to do with your sex life? As it turns out, a lot. That feeling of sluggishness and sleepiness after a big meal is an obvious factor, but what’s IN the food

you’re consuming is just as important.

“Omega-3 makes the nervous system work better”, says Dr. Barbara Bartlik, assistant professor of psychiatry and sex therapist with the Human Sexuality Program. So if you’re planning a dinner date and are hoping for some sexy dessert, consider having the salmon.

Good circulation helps with the swelling of tissue during arousal so make sure you get a good breakfast before said date that include foods that help with that. Try granola or oatmeal if you’re a breakfast traditionalist, or if you have the luxury of time make yourself a root vegetable salad. If not, grab a fist full of seeds.

What’s good for the heart is good for the penis/pussy! Clogged arteries can prevent sufficient blood flow to your genitals but too little fat can prevent you from producing certain hormones. All in all, keep it balanced and stick to “good fats” like olive oil, fish, and nuts.

Sure there are a lot of pills out there for “quick fixes”, but how well do they work and are they worth the side affects? Healthy eating could be a long term solution!
