It’s time to turn up the heat!
When it comes to spicing up your love life, there is a number of ways you can heat up the passion between you and your partner. Since ancient times, people have used various foods to spark the flames of desire and libido, too.
Strawberries dipped in chocolate or a nice hot cup of coffee with a pinch of cinnamon will awaken your senses instantly. However, not all aphrodisiacs come off a fork. There are many other ways to rekindle your romance. Here are some tips that may help you along the way.
Food is without a doubt one of the best ways to stimulate your sex life. Why? Well, first of all, it’s easy. And easydoesn’t necessarily mean ordinary. Oysters are one of the most decadent aphrodisiacs out there. It is believed that famous Casanova ate 50 for breakfast.
It’s not just pure fluff. Scientists have proven that oysters are rich in amino acids which increase the levels of sex hormones. Having that said, consider having your next date at your favourite seafood restaurant.
Chocolate is probably on the top of the list when it comes to ways of showing affection. It’s an inseparable part of every celebration, whether it’s a Valentine’s Day, a birthday party, or a simple way to show some love to the people you care about. If you’re looking for a way to spice up your long-term relationship, go for some fantastic gift hampers with high-quality chocolate goodies.
Most people would agree that they love chocolate because it tastes good. It makes you feel good too. That’s because cocoa contains Phenylethylamine and serotonin, both responsible for lighting up pleasure areas in the brain. This is why it’s probably the sweetest aphrodisiac in the world.
You’re probably familiar with the numerous benefits physical activity has on our overall health. By exercising regularly, you’ll not only get leaner muscles but it will put you in a better mood, too.
Speaking of a better mood, your libido will get higher. Working out speeds up your heart rate and increases your blood flow, especially in the pelvic region.
What’s more, it releases endorphins or so-called “happiness” hormone. Exercising also efficiently battles stress, which is undoubtedly one of the greatest sex-drive killers out there. Hitting the gym together as a couple will introduce a new activity into your daily routine plus it will spice up things in the bedroom as well.
No romantic (or sensual) setting is complete without a glass of wine. Red wine especially is known to be a great way to promote healthy blood flow. Aside from health benefits, it will also put you in a good mood. This is because alcohol works as a relaxant. It’s important to drink moderately, though.
A glass or two will lower your inhibitions and you’ll both feel more turned on than you would without this liquid aphrodisiac. So stop by and get a nice bottle of red on your way home the next time you want to spice things up in the bedroom.
5. Essential oils
Most people would agree that the smell can either make or break the atmosphere between two people. Personal hygiene is imperative, but we’re talking about something else here. If you want to shake things up a bit in your relationship, you have to light the fires of passion.
Essential oils can be your best friend on that journey. Infused with herbal aphrodisiac properties, they enhance attraction between lovers. They come in a great variety of products to choose from.
Whether you go for oil-dipped incense sticks or massage oil, it will put you both in the mood for a night filled with passion.
It’s time for all coffee lovers out there to discover the sexy side of caffeine. Everyone who consumes this delicious brew knows that its effect is immediately evident. Coffee excites not only the body but the mind as well. It elevates the mood as well as the pleasure system of the brain.
This happens because coffee is a stimulant that increases levels of dopamine in our body. To experience its full aphrodisiac power, it’s important to be moderate with consumption. As with anything else, too much caffeine will kill the stimulating effect.
Being in a relationship means that you need to shake things up a bit from time to time. It will keep the fires of passion lingering which is very important.
Sometimes it may seem like a challenging task, but with the right tips, you’ll be on top of your game in no time. For those who are maybe more daring, there is a range of sex toys and role-plays to explore. If that’s not your cup of tea, don’t worry. You can always choose some of the many natural aphrodisiacs that will stimulate your senses and spice up your sex life.
