Sexual experience is controlled by our libido, which is controlled by hormone levels. There are a number of factors that affect our hormone levels and some of them are related to the foods we consume. All of the following food items are not only good for our bodies build but also for your sex drive. These will not only increase your libido but they will also boost arousal and get both men and women in the right mood.

Not only are they very tasty and healthy, they are also a pleasant sight for our senses! Its phallic shape is said to be partially responsible for being considered an aphrodisiac. Believe it or not, carrots and asparagus are also two food items that are closely related to male genetalia. The phallic nature of these items is a great promoter of sensuality.
Figs are high in amino acids, which are believed to increase libido and improve sexual stamina. Its shape and taste are pleasurable to the human senses and figs are considered to be closely related to the female genetalia. Another food item related to the female genetalia is oysters.

Juicy fruits like mango, strawberries, raspberries and peaches are drippy, sticky, and sweet. The fruits themselves are linked to romance while their taste is linked to sex drive. Their shape, size and textures are erotically suggestive and succulent so it’s no wonder these are picked up by all your body’s senses. Creamy substances (like honey and whipped cream) along with fruits, elicit the same reactions by the majority of our senses as well.
Avocado, though falling under the category of creamy substance, is full of vitamin B6, which is a factor in increases male hormone production and the level of potassium in avocados regulates women’s thyroid gland. Both of which are factors in increasing libido in men and women.
