Food, glorious food. Imagine this scene, it’s so cold outside, you are alone with your favorite somebody and you have lots of time to relax and unwind. You need a few snacks to get your private party started, right? Well, here is a list of treats that will make your time together a “sure thing”. Get your favorite serving platter out and put on your thong because there’s going to be some holiday jollies going on!
The holiday menu for a fun sleigh ride goes a little something like this:
The blacker the berry the sweeter the juice. “This phytochemical-rich food enhances both libido and sexual endurance,” say Drs. Anna Maria and Brian Clement, authors of 7 Keys to Lifelong Sexual Vitality and directors of Hippocrates Health Institute in West Palm Beach, Florida.
The prescription for love is as follows, “Consume 10 black raspberries or a tablespoon of seeds a few hours before getting busy.” Think of it as a power booster.
I love a great cup of Chai and let me tell you why. Cloves. Cloves are a “sex superfood”. “They [are] versatile when it comes to cooking: it can be brewed in hot apple cider, infused in your favorite exotic dish, or added to a chai tea latte.” Such a powerful spice and it has awesome benefits. “In India, cloves have been used to treat male sexual dysfunction for centuries.” Another added benefit, “Cloves are also used to rid bad breath, which can’t hurt your kissing skills either,” says Glassman. Nothing like kissing your spicy sweetheart with fresh breath.
These sweet treats make you irresistible. Figs will get your libidos pumped like teenagers in the backseat of a Jeep on a Friday night! They are so yummy, “[they are] considered excellent stimulants of fertility and enhance the secretion of pheromones,” say Dr. Clement. The doctor prescribes, “feast on up to five figs before getting it on and find out for yourself.” Figs are pretty, festive, and will definitely brighten up your holiday tray.
Beyoncé sang a song about it and researchers at the University of Guelph agree, “if you’re really looking for a sweet libido-booster, stick to a slice of watermelon.” As much as I love chocolate, it appears that watermelon packs more bang-bang-boom: “watermelon is 92 percent water, but the remaining 8 percent of fruit is jam-packed with vital nutrients for sexual health.”
Check this out: “researchers at the Texas A&M Fruit and Vegetable Improvement Center reported finding in 2008 that watermelon has ingredients that delivered Viagra-like effects to the human body’s blood vessels and could even aid in increasing libido.” So, when Beyonce sings that “she’s been drankin’ watermelon,” imagine that she is doing it for scientific purposes.
Also, “Watermelon contains a phytonutrient called citrulline, which the body converts to arginine, an amino acid that boosts nitric oxide levels in the body, which relax blood vessels in the same way a medicine like Viagra does,” says Dr. Clement. Hey, a doctor recommended it. I am offering you a second opinion. Try it, you’ll like it.
I love it, honey is one of my favorite things. Honey has medicinal purposes as well as libido enhancing properties. Reportedly, “honey extracted from aphrodisiac flowers like jasmine and orchid can increase the potency in a man. The wonderful sweetness of honey in bed also takes its place in guides like the Kamasutra.”
If you are looking for that “staying power,” honey can do the trick.
Dr.’s prescription: “two spoons of honey are enough to keep you going all night long.”

Wine and dine her. The payoff is incredible. So, the good news is this, “women who drink between one and two glasses of plonk a day have a higher sex drive than those who drink less.” Red, red, wine…come close to me! But wait, there’s scientific evidence to support the vino sip, “A study of 800 women aged 18-50 by the University of Florence compared the results to the Female Sexual Function Index, an extensive survey of sexual arousal and satisfaction in women. They found that red wine drinkers scored 27.3 out of a maximum of 36, compared to 25.9 for less-frequent cork poppers and a chaste 24.4 for teetotallers.” So if she don’t sip that wine, she might not like to grind…too much? Ok,sorry.

Yes, chocolate is on the list! Chocolate will never be stricken from any list that I produce. It has remained for good reason too. Peep this, “eating chocolate leads to higher levels of desire, arousal, and sexual satisfaction, according to a study from an Italian university reported in The Journal of Sexual Medicine.” I rely heavily on scientific research, you see.
Also, the studies revealed the following, “female participants who consumed at least one cube of chocolate a day experienced more active libidos and better overall sexual function than those who didn’t indulge.” See, all those chocolate loving ladies can’t be wrong! So, stomp your feet and say it loud like Randy Watson, “Sexual Chocolate”…”thank you, good night.”
Enjoy your list of holiday treats that boost the libido. Eat up buttercups, happy holidays!
