5 Surprisingly Effective All-Natural Aphrodisiacs (That You Probably Have in Your Kitchen)


Surprisingly Sexy Ingredient #2: Tomatoes

Many food experts prefer to call the tomato, the "apple of love." Why is the tomato erotic? Two reasons: First of all, the sensation of eating a fresh, fully ripened, crisp, clean, juicy tomato is sexy all on its own. Watching a pair of sexy lips nibble on this fruit (or vegetable, depending on which school you belong to), is enough to make you hungry for other things. Of course, the juicier the tomato, the more chance you'll have of dribbling on yourself or your partner.but isn't that what tongues are for? Added bonus: Eating tomatoes is known to aid in sexual performance. They help calm pre-sex nerves, which can be especially helpful in a first-time-partner situation. Furthermore, the tomato is also known for improving muscle control, which can aid in a number of other between-the-sheets efforts, too.
