Most people are surprised when I tell them that the banana is an aphrodisiac. They know that the shape suggests a little somethin' somethin', but it also packs a serious punch to the libido when eaten. Who would have thought that besides using a banana to learn how to give a good blowjob, there are other benefits?
The phallic shape of the banana is great for giving someone who loves a nice shaped penis a twinkle in their eye. The banana flower as a whole is quite erotic. It has phallus tapers and a bulb shaped base. The feel of the banana is also soft and fleshy adding to the sensuality of the fruit.
In Central America people drink the sap from the red banana, which is sweeter and softer than the yellow banana and known to be an elixir of love. The Hindus regard bananas as a sign of fertility. There is an Islamic myth that states that Adam and Eve did not cover themselves in fig leaves, but in banana leaves to cover their nudity.
Bananas are full of vitamins A. B. C, potassium, protein, iron, and fiber. It also contains the enzyme, bromelain which can be great for the production of testosterone.
Fun Sexy Fact:
Women would use bananas as dildos before vibrators were so readily available. Let's be honest, in a pinch, some women still might.
Fall is my favorite time of year it’s flirty, fun, and a great time for change. What is even better is that it’s time for pumpkin. I do a happy dance whenever we enter into the pumpkin season. Pumpkins stir up emotions of security and comfort, which is always nice especially during the holiday season. Plus, pumpkin is downright delicious in bread, muffins, pasta, coffee, and so much more.
There are a few yummy aphrodisiacs in this pumpkin muffin recipe such as vanilla and cinnamon (did you know those are two top smells that turn on men).
Whip up these muffins on a sensual Saturday or a sexy Sunday as a treat to you and your boo or for your fabulous self. They pair wonderfully with a cup of hazelnut coffee or French vanilla coffee and your morning paper or for brunch.

Two of my favorite things on a burger are feta cheese and spinach. I have gone on and on about my deep love for spinach, it’s such a sexy green and an aphrodisiac which is suppose to be great for the male libido. Can’t ever have too much spinach around!
Feta, while not an aphrodisiac, always gets the pleasure to be paired with delicious aphrodisiacs like with olives, tomatoes, strawberries and yes.. spinach.
This is one of my favorite burgers. It’s a wonderful comfort food that is also sexy food. A great burger for watching a game or movie night. Enjoy it with a glass of wine. Cheers!
