The relationship between eating and sexual behavior and what to eat and drink on a date
What foods you eat first from the table and how you eat them can tell your date a lot about your sex life. When you eat, you're using many of your senses -- taste, sight, smell and touch. These sensations are the same ones used during sex and, if you feed your lover, these sensations just might come into play.
“Eating, having a relationship with your food, is a relationship on its own. So that’s a symbol that I look at and I figure how people relate to others around them,” Dr. NasserZadeh told genConnect. “Food is a reciprocal process as well – it gives you pleasure and then it gives you something – hopefully – nutritious for your body.”
Just like exercising, eating too much or not enough can affect your performance. A healthy lifestyle and good nutrition are key components to maintaining a strong reproductive system and heightened libido. Aphrodisiac foods like watermelon, avocado, nutmeg and celery can increase your desire.
