Top 10 Aphrodisiacs to sex up your Romantic Meal for Two

2 299
Imagine amorous sparks flying through the air based on the food you serve. Well…if you believe in magic and historical tales of aphrodisiacs and wanton behavior; this is your lucky day. We put together a list of the top ten Aphrodisiacs to consider when preparing a romantic meal for two. Foods with a reputation for stirring the imagination and fanning the flames of desire. Remember…the mind is the most powerful aphrodisiac and if you believe…. then so be it!

sexy_women.jpgThe top ten aphrodisiacs for seduction are:

1. Oysters
One of the quintessential aphrodisiacs of love, oysters are said to titillate the imagination and arouse one’s sexual desire, mostly when eaten raw. The very act of slurping a raw oyster can be sexy. It probably helps that oysters are linked to one of the most notorious lovers of the world–Casanova who supposedly ate over 50 raw oysters a day to boost his libido. Here is a wonderful recipe to try for your next Seduction Meal: Char Grilled Oysters with Roquefort Cheese and Red Wine Vinaigrette.

2. Caviar
Caviar is another highly sensual food. Delicate seafood balls of seduction that pop in your mouth with each bite. Sexy indeed. Caviar is said to increase blood flow to the genitals so how could you not have sex on the mind? There is nothing like a candle light dinner, a special caviar dish, and champagne or vodka to complement this extravagant meal. Price also plays a role in setting this aphrodisiac apart as something very special to share with a loved one. A very enticing appetizer or midnight snack with your loved one: Yellowtail Tartare with Payusnaya Caviar.   

3. Lobster
Lobster the tastiest crustacean
Here is a recipe by Chef/Co-Owner David Burke, David Burke & Donatella, NYC called Angry Lobster on a Bed of Nails. A recipe that will certainly stirred the imagination. 

4. Avocado
Originally called ahuacate, the Aztec word for testicle, name was changed to avocado to make it easier for Americans to pronounce. Avocados are sexy and nutritious. With summer approaching, here is a sensual seafood and avocado seduction meal: Chllled Avocado Seafood Soup.

5. Asparagus
Will this food help put you in the mood for love? If you believe in the power of suggestion, perhaps. The asparagus strongly resembles the male genitalia–so much so that eating a spear of asparagus dipped in melted butter (especially with your fingers), for some can be a very erotic experience.  Here is a very simple recipe for Asparagus with Lemon. Serve with a side of melted butter, dip, and bring to your mouth and indulge!

6. Chocolate
Ahhh.. Chocolate. The gift of the Gods and a world-wide tradition on Valentine’s Day.  Chocolate does create a chemical reaction in our bodies– it makes our brain secrete endorphins which is linked to the sensation of happiness and pleasure. Possibly the number one, most ordered chocolate dish in restaurants around the world: Chocolate Molten Cake. Created by Chef Jay, this recipe is truly a Seduction Meal… how could it not work its magic?  Molten Chocolate Lava Cake with Raspberry Sauce

7. Chili Peppers
Sexy. Sensuous. Red. And full of Heat! It makes your face flush, promotes sweat at the brow and makes hearts flutter. Sounds like love! And chili peppers also release endorphins when eaten so imagine the double whammy of a chili-spiced chocolate treat?? So how about these “LOVE Cupcakes” – Pequin Chili Chocolate Cupcakes.

8. Truffles
Perhaps this is more of a contemporary aphrodisiac…truffles can be found enhancing the flavor of many dishes in today’s top restaurants.     If your lover lists steak as his or her all time favorite meal, here is a very simple grilled Steak dish with a light, earthy but enticing truffle enhanced flavor.   Grilled Rib-eye Steak with Black Truffle Butter Buttons.

9. Figs
Reminiscent of the curves of a women – figs are fleshy, plump and luscious. One of my all time favorites. Here we have a recipe that was created by Chef John: Burrata Bruschetta with Grilled Figs – as he says “Bringing Sexy Back”! 

10. Honey
known as the nectar of Aphrodite, honey is a natural, luscious sweet treat associated with increasing sexual desire. Due to its runny, smooth texture and sweet, glistening, sticky nature, it truly is a sensual substance. We end with a recipe that boasts two aphrodisiacs: Honey and Pomegranates: Honey Roasted Hens with Pomegranates.
