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


Sexy Ingredient #5: Buttermilk

Buttermilk is a popular ingredient in desserts for meals that call for a lush finale, and that same quality makes it a perfect post-coital reward, too. How? Try a buttermilk shower. The wonderful feeling of cool buttermilk poured over the body can be enough to start an encore. For the non-kitchen savvy, heed this important tip: Do not, under any circumstances, microwave or heat the buttermilk much above room temperature; doing so will make it curdle. Speaking from experience, stinky clumps of curdled buttermilk is not the best way to put an end to the evening. It's more of a humorous end—which can be memorable too—but since we're speaking about romance here, leave the laughs for that special moment when you decide it's time to share your junior high school photos instead!
