Food can be sexy.

Humans have been tracking and testing aphrodisiac foods for thousands of years. In the 17th century, Spanish fly was mixed with dried moles and bat's blood as a love charm. To this day, Mannish water, a soup made from chopped up goat head is a popular aphrodisiac dish in Jamaican cuisine. Here are 3 love foods scientifically proven to push your hormone levels up and get your blood pumping.
Asparagus has been touted as an aphrodisiac for centuries. Nicholas Culpepper, an English botanist born in the 17th century, wrote that asparagus "stirs up lust in man and woman". And in 19th-century France, bridegrooms were served three courses of asparagus at their prenuptial dinner. 
  • How it works: asparagus contains high levels of folic acid, a substance which facilitates the production of histamine. In turn, histamine triggers orgasm and creates a hot flush sensation in men and women alike. Studies have shown that people treated with histamine supplements experienced more and better quality orgasms.
  • Serving suggestion: serve with lemon juice or freshly grated parmesan cheese as a starter. You can enjoy asparagus by itself or in a salad. Cooking also leaves most of its nutrients intact.
  • When to eat it: the Vegetarian Society suggests eating asparagus three days in a row for maximum effect.
In the olden days, newlyweds were encouraged to drink mead, an alcoholic drink made from fermented honey and yeast, to boost their fertility levels. 
  • How it works: honey contains high levels of B vitamins, essential for the production of testosterone. It also contains boron, a mineral which can enhance testosterone levels. Honey is also high in nitric oxide, a chemical that opens blood vessels and triggers fuller erections in men and women.
  • Serving suggestion: pour it on your partner's chest and lick it off sensually.
  • When to eat it: add a few teaspoons to your tea or yoghurt as a natural sweetener, or spread it on toast. Treat yourself to honey a few hours before play to boost your energy levels, or make it a part of your diet for best results.
There's more to bananas and sex than the shape. 
  • How it works: bananas are rich in potassium and B vitamins, two substances that help your body produce sex hormones such as testosterone. Bananas also contain plenty of carbohydrates, perfect for endurance in the bedroom.
  • Serving suggestion: bananas are great by themselves. Add dark chocolate or honey to get your sex hormones flowing.
  • When to eat it: eat a banana a few hours before play to keep your energy levels high, says Hilda Hutcherson, M.D., author of Pleasure. A medium-sized banana contains just 100 calories. is the only Australian dating site inspired by women. Ladies, choose who can contact you. Guys, sit back, relax, let them choose you.
