There is nothing worse than losing the desire to please your mate sexually. As a matter of fact there is something worst; not knowing what to do about it. Don’t worry; this is not an uncommon situation. As we age, of course our bodies begin to change physically. Our hormones just don’t seem to rage like they did before (for some of us) and let alone the stress from our daily routine of life, kids, etc; but that doesn’t have to be the death of your sex life!
A lot of people when faced with this dilemma may be tempted to ask their doctor for a prescription drug like Viagra; but before you head to the prescription counter you should consider making a few lifestyle choices to improve your sex drive. According to the Mayo Clinic, healthy lifestyle changes including regular exercise, limited alcohol, daily multivitamins and a whole foods diet are all a good start for increased sexual stamina.
Here are a few libido-boosting foods and great recipe links that are sure to get your blood racing!
1) Hot Chilies:
Capsaicin, (which is a chemical found in fiery peppers), increases circulation to get blood pumping and stimulates nerve endings so you’ll feel more turned on. - RECIPES
2) Asparagus and Avocados:
The vitamin E in these green organic foods helps the body to churn out hormones like testosterone, estrogen, and progesterone, which circulate in your bloodstream and stimulate sexual responses like clitoral swelling and vaginal lubrication. Here’s a great website if you’re looking for a good recipe to mix and match these two organic foods; it’s actually low in fat and calories! – RECIPES
Other than the obvious, here’s another reason to think about sex when you wrap your lips around this phallus-shaped fruit: Chiquitas deliver potassium, a nutrient key to muscle strength. So when you orgasm, the contractions will be super intense! – RECIPES
Cocoa contains the chemical phenyl ethylamine, a stimulant that conjures just the sort of subtle feelings of well-being and excitement that make sex seem like a great idea. (Plus it makes a great edible arrangement if you’re looking for body decorating ideas!) – RECIPES
Oysters are always the first thing that comes to mind when you think of an aphrodisiac, but they really can spark randiness! Now me personally, I can’t stand the thought of oysters, but I’ve been told these shellfish delights are brimming with zinc, a mineral that cranks up the production of testosterone, which has been linked to a higher sex drive. Maybe one day I’ll take a chance and test that out for myself. – RECIPES
The pom owes its passion power to antioxidants, which protect the lining of blood vessels, allowing more blood to course through them. The upshot you ask? Increased genital sensitivity…enough said! – RECIPES

Besides relaxing you faster than a soothing neck rub can, red wine contains resveratrol which is an antioxidant that helps boost blood flow and improves circulation before and during intercourse. Interesting right? Here is a listing of the top selling red wine choices. – RECIPES
8) Salmon and Walnuts:
They’re packed with omega-3 fatty acids, which keep sex-hormone production at its peak. Pumpkin seeds and flaxseeds also contain the good stuff. – RECIPES
Post dinner; devour ice cream flavored with this sweet bean. It kindly stimulates nerves, making sexual sensations feel even better. Umm umm good! – RECIPES
This juicy fruit contains the phytonutrient citrulline, which leads to an uptick in the amount of nitric oxide in your body. That spike causes blood vessels to relax and speeds up circulation. As a result, you’ll get more aroused in less time. Watermelon just happens to be my fav! – RECIPES
