There are certain ingredients in foods that have long been called aphrodisiacs — having the ability to fire up passion and desire in whoever consumes them. Most of these beliefs date back to antiquity.
Some of these items are well known, such as oysters, chocolates and wine, but others don’t fly as high on the radar, even though they are easily accessible and should be used for more than satisfying our hunger or thirst.

Food #2: Avocados and asparagus.

An English herbalist from the 17th century, Nicholas Culpepper, wrote that asparagus “stirs up lust in man and woman”.
In 19th century France, bridegrooms were served three courses of the sexy spears at their prenuptial dinners. And why? Asparagus is a great source of potassium, fiber, vitamin B6, vitamins A and C, and thiamin and folic acid. The latter is said to boost histamine production necessary for the ability to reach orgasms in both sexes. Who doesn’t want help in having fantastic orgasms? I know I do!
