Me So Horny: 8 Libido-increasing Foods

Food is great, sex is great, and believe in or not, the two go hand-in-hand. We all know of the foods that make us break out and the foods that leave us bloated, but do you know which foods help increase your sex drive?

Watermelon

Believe it or not, watermelon is something I more recently got into. Researchers from Texas University found that there’s a nutrient in watermelon (called Citrulline) that has similar effects on the body as Viagra and Viagra-like products. This nutrient is then converted into Arginine when digested, which boosts nitric oxide that relaxes your blood vessels.

Red Wine

While I’m not advising to chug an entire bottle of Malbec, the antioxidants and alcohol in red wine relax your capillary walls and increase blood flow to your erogenous zones. But—clearly—too much alcohol will make your sex life shitty, so don’t take it to the head.

Eggs

Eggs are high in Vitamin B complex, so they fight stress and balance hormones, which are very important things to keep track of in male and female sexual health.

Dark Chocolate

Chocolate is sexy. Period. Dark chocolate is a great source of antioxidants, and is high in phenylethylamine, aka the chemical that’s released that makes us feel we’re in love.

Peaches

Aside from being an emoji we use as an ass pun, peaches are high in vitamin C, which boosts libido (and blood flow) in women.

Unsweetened Cranberry Juice

Cranberry juice is another gift from above. Not only does it help prevent UTIs, but it also reduces bloating.

Beef

Food For Your Libido - Galore Mag

Although I was raised eating only fish and poultry, lean cuts of red meat are great when trying to increase your sex drive.

Avocados

Food For Your Libido - Galore Mag

Avocados, aka one of my favorite things in this world, are very rich in folic acid, which helps metabolize protein and give you more energy. Also, it’s high in Vitamin B6, which (for men) increases hormone production.

Mangos

Food For Your Libido - Galore Mag

MANGOS ARE GOD’S GIFT TO US MORTALS! Honestly. I eat at least one every day in the summer…which might be the reason why I have so much energy. Mangos are the king (or queen #feminism) of energy-supplied fruits. Have some before you take the action to the bedroom.
