6 Superfoods for Better Sex

Want a sexier, spicier sex life? The key to having more fun in the bedroom may have a lot to do with what foods you choose in the kitchen. I'm not talking about clich├ęd aphrodisiacs (oysters!); the everyday edibles below can help you get in the mood. Make them part of your diet and prepare to put more romance on the menu!

Plums Yes, this fruit can make you frisky! It may prevent plaque buildup in blood vessels, according to the British Journal of Nutrition. Clear arteries create better circulation, which increases arousal, according to Robert Fried, Ph.D., coauthor of Great Food, Great Sex (Ballantine Books).

Chickpeas Garbanzos contain an amino acid called L-arginine, which provides nitric oxide, widening blood vessels and speeding your body's natural ability to turn on. Four tablespoons of hummus daily do the trick. Want alternate sources? Nuts, such as almonds and walnuts, and fish such as salmon, cod and halibut are arginine-rich, too.

Olive oil The healthy fat from Mediterranean fare helps your body produce enough testosterone—a key hormone for heightened sex drive (yes, for women, too). Two tablespoons daily will ensure you stay in tip-top shape!

Recipe for romance: Carrot-Ginger Dressing




Red wine Raise a glass to romance! Women who drank one to two glasses of red wine daily experienced more natural lubrication than teetotalers, according to a study from the University of Florence in Italy. Sip a 5-ounce glass (the recommended daily amount of alcohol) for more fun between the sheets.

Recipe for romance: Fresas al Vino (strawberries in wine!)

Dark chocolate Women who nibbled one cube of dark chocolate daily reported greater desire and better sexual function that those who didn't, according to a study in The Journal of Sexual Medicine. The flavonoids in dark chocolate are linked to better circulation, which translates to a healthier sex life. Now, that's rich!

Recipe for romance: Mini Ice Cream Sandwiches




Tomatoes They're filled with antioxidants, which mop up free radicals to keep your cells healthy in every way. Red peppers, garlic, spinach, broccoli, beets, berries, watermelon and red grapes are also antioxidant-rich. Toss tomatoes and a rainbow of fruits and veggies all day for a healthy love life tonight!
