10 Ways To Be Utterly Irresistible In Bed [EXPERT]
Just because you go to bed doesn't mean you have to go to sleep!
... because wearing sexy lingerie isn't enough.

Though it may be impossible to feel sexy and desirable all of the time, there's no more important time to feel that way than when you're between the sheets. So, we asked our experts to offer their best advice about how to ensure that every time you hit the hay, you feel your absolute best ... and here's what they had to say!

1. Eat sexy foods. Expensive oysters, truffles and caviar are classic aphrodisiacs. But, did you know that common foods like asparagus, avocado, arugula and basil can affect your neurochemicals to help enhance your mood? There's a reason why hotels serve fresh pineapple, raspberries and strawberries with a bowl of real whipped cream.

Avocado slices sprinkled with pine nuts and a thin chiffonade of basil exude well-being. Also, try fresh apricots, figs and bananas dusted with nutmeg and a few sliced raw almonds to spice up your sex life and keep you from feeling good. Of course, you can also go with classic chocolate. Nancy Lee Bentley

2. Use provocative aromas. Try dabbing real vanilla on your temples or sip some ginseng tea with a splash of almond extract. High zinc foods such as oysters, shrimp and pine nuts enhance the senses, especially taste and smell, and support libido.

Of course, you already know that scented candles, flowers and incense can help set your mood. So, instead of perfume, try droplets of essential oils like lavender, sandalwood, musk or ylang ylang on your pillow. Nancy Lee Bentley

3. Avoid passing gas. When your digestive track's upset, your whole system's off balance. Acidophilus or probiotics from live, cultured foods such as whole, organic yogurt or drinkable kefir, naturally-cultured dill pickles, Greek olives and other condiments like cultured carrots, cabbage and beets or bubbly, kombucha tea can quiet those worries and woes. Nancy Lee Bentley

4. Embrace your je ne sais quois. Just like pheromones, you can't necessarily see it, but its effects are definitely there. So, whatever makes you feel powerful and alluring inside is bound to translate into an indescribably delicious aura outside. Nancy Lee Bentley

5. Take care of every aspect of your body. Good nutrition, hydration and exercise are all important for physical power. Being relaxed, open-hearted and conflict-free reduces stress and cortisol, and opens your mental and emotional fields. Nancy Lee Bentley
