There’s a reason why eating certain foods gets you turned on. Aphrodisiacs are foods that arouse your sexual instincts and can increase your libido. No guarantee eating these foods is going to get you ready to jump into bed, but there is a chance they might:


We give chocolate to our loved ones on Valentine’s Day, but did you know that eating chocolate can turn you on? Although chocolate isn’t technically considered an aphrodisiac, eating chocolate generally leads to a feeling of excitement, which doesn’t hurt.


If you don’t know what maca is, it’s an Incan root that is often made into a powder to add to teas or smoothies. But it’s also known as Peru’s “natural Viagra” because of its ability to increase energy and stamina.

Hot Chiles

Chiles are more than just spicy to eat. They also can spice up your sex life. Hot chiles stimulate nerve endings, which can release adrenaline. Adrenaline then increases your heart rate and releases endorphins, meaning a more exciting sexual encounter.


Oysters are the oldest aphrodisiacs in the game, and not just because eating them can be super sexy. Oysters contain zinc, which is an essential mineral in the production of testosterone and sperm.


Not only are pomegranates good for your health, but they’re also good for your sex life too. Pomegranates have tons of antioxidants that can decrease inflammation and deliver more blood throughout your body, which has been found to help with erectile dysfunction.


Watermelon is high in citrulline, which can increase nitric acid in your body, which increases blood flow and sexual arousal.


So basically, a bowl of chocolate-covered fruit is the best snack before sex. Strawberries are packed with vitamin C, which helps your body produce sex hormones, which help your brain increase libido.

Whipped Cream

Whipped cream is often a popular food choice to use during sex, but some people find that it actually helps turn you on. Although there’s no scientific proof it’s an aphrodisiac, it still can be really fun.
