The most romantic day of the year is fast approaching.
Yes Valentine’s Day falls on Monday (February 14) and loved-up couples will be prepping for the occasion.
So if you’re planning a night in with a special dinner for two, you can cook up a storm to make things extra magical.
There are aphrodisiacs you could include in your menu and it’ll get you wanting dessert in the bedroom afterwards.
Lovehoney has partnered with The Sex Consultant Ness Cooper to reveal the best foods to tuck into this Valentine’s Day.
Aphrodisiacs’ mood-enhancing qualities are down to the properties they possess that lead to increased blood flow to the genitals.
These help the body relax and be ready for stimulation, while also increasing pleasurable sensitivity.
And aphrodisiacs can provide much more than just their physiological effects.
These foods seen as aphrodisiacs don’t always have an influence on our bodies through consumption.
Also they might not always look phallic or like the vulva which may turn someone on.
It’s also not all about taste, as the smell of certain foods can turn us on too. Our bodies enjoy all of our senses to be stimulated.
You can spice up your Valentine’s Day by using these foods as a form of foreplay to increase arousal.
Add a blindfold and perform an erotic taste test, surprising your partner with kisses between food nibbles.
Just remember to do your research into aphrodisiacs you may be tempted to try as some aren’t always safe.
