Look, you're over fifty -- it's time someone had "the" sex talk with you...
Some foods that can increase your libido include: celery, raw oysters, bananas, avocado, nuts, mangoes, peaches, strawberries, eggs, liver, figs, garlic, pumpkin and chocolate. And, in Karen Groves new book, she claims you can eat your way to great sex. It covers a natural solution to problems associated with your libido.
Just because you've taken the pledge to be 50+ and alone, it doesn't mean that for the next fifty years you need to practice abstinence in your sex life. Still, many people at this age find they don't have the same desire as they did when they were younger. A lot of reasons could be at the root cause. Even stress can cause it. If you want to keep active, you might want to have a look at her new book. It's called, Eat Your Way to Great Sex -- Enjoy Superfoods for Enhanced Libido: Desire, Fertility, Energy, Erectile Function and Great Orgasms.
"Because statistics worldwide show that more and more people are starting to experience problems with sex drive and sexual performance. Some of these statistics are reviewed in the Foreword to this book. There are a number of factors that may be causing these problems with libido, and what you eat is one of them. The declining quality of our food supplies is very concerning, and so the Introduction takes a brief look at our food supplies and points out the importance of consuming organic natural food for libido and health, versus the mass-produced food."
It's understood that some people may have medical problems or psychological problems that affect their libido. In fact, even some medications can decrease your natural drive. You should always consult with medical professionals before you try and diagnose the problem yourself. Eating the wrong food can be the culprit too. Here is a list of foods that will kill your sex drive:
- Brands of Kellogg cereals
- Gin and tonics
- Graham crackers
- Too much Licorice
- Tuna noodle casserole
If you need more information why these create problems you can find it here. But again, the reason why you may have a decreased libido doesn't necessarily have to do with food. Just being out of shape or leading an un-healthy lifestyle can be the deciding factor.
You will see one of the foods mentioned in Eat Your Way to Great Sex is celery. Alan Hirsch, M.D., author of Scentsational Sex says:
"When you chew a stalk of celery, you release androstenone and androstenol odor molecules into your mouth. They then travel up the back of your throat to your nose. Once there, the pheromones boost your arousal, turning you on and causing your body to send off scents and signals that make you more desirable to women."
Now, doesn't that just make you want to whip it out? Um... the celery, I mean....
In Eat Your Way to Great Sex, after a brief chapter on ‘What is Libido?’ individual chapters are devoted to:
• Superfoods for Stimulating Desire
• Superfoods for Boosting Energy
• Superfoods for Boosting Fertility
• Superfoods for Good Erectile Function
• Superfoods for Great Orgasms
Each of these chapters starts with a list of foods you should avoid; mood-killing foods, foods that don’t energize, foods that can cause low fertility and problems in pregnancy, foods that can cause problems with erectile function, and foods that can cause orgasms to fizzle and fail.
Superfoods that you should include in your diet for great sex are then described in these chapters.
Tanya, who provided a review of the book says:
