Video discusses why some foods are considered aphrodisiacs and good for healthy sexual function. (via PsychTruth)

Can certain foods truly stimulate sexual desire, or is it all in our heads? For example, anything shaped like a penis--like asparagus--was thought to be sexually stimulating to both sexes (why are we not surprised?). Remember not to giggle the next time you delicately bite the head off of an asparagus spear.

Research shows there is no truth to the idea that once you eat a certain food, you will immediately feel sexual desire.

Healthy foods can provide a much needed boost to our bodies, helping us to feel more sexual.

As well, when it comes to food we should never underestimate the power of sensual suggestion.
