You’ve probably heard before that seafood is good for your sex life. But does that apply to all seafood? I went on a discovery mission to find out the truth. I wanted to know whether it was about what the seafood contained or the way that it looked? You know oysters and other mollusks have a very sexual appearance when you crack them open.
I searched the Internet and consulted my nutrition books and it looks like most experts agree. The omega-3 fatty acids contained in most seafood has the ability to enhance your mood and sometimes that’s all it takes to make sex better.
You know the biggest sexual organ is our brain. Yep, that’s right and everyone; men and women have this big ol sex organ called the brain. If the brain ain’t ready for sex, nobody is going to be happy in the end. And the funny thing is, people have known this fact for centuries.
As a matter of fact the word horny most likely came from eating rhinoceros horn, which many claimed would help elevate the sexual sensation and make you “horny.”
Seems people have been searching for aphrodisiacs for a long time. Eating seafood has always been believed to get you in the mood. Plus, the delicacy of seafood, along with the higher price, makes eating seafood a luxury rather than everyday eating. This might be another reason that it may have gotten some of its acclaimed fame.
Throughout history, people all around the globe have tried certain foods, beverages, drugs, and even medicines in the hopes of being bestowed with some magical aphrodisiac powers. The fact that some foods look similar to men’s and women’s genitals, or are even derived from animal sex organs, was no accident. Named after Aphrodite, the Greek goddess of love, beauty, and fertility, aphrodisiacs are substances that are said to elicit sexual desire and arousal, enhance sex drive and sexual “performance,” and extend sexual energy.
However, there is proof even today, that there is a connection between eating seafood and having good sex. After being treated to a nice dinner, couples find themselves happier and sometimes a bit more affectionate. We set aside some of the stress of the week and focus on the good tasting food and the company of our companion. This leads to a much more agreeable sexual encounter.
Another reason that seafood might have gained such fame; is the fact that it is lighter on the stomach than other meats. It’s easy to digest and doesn’t lay in the stomach the way red meat tends to do. It’s hard to feel sexy or even want to get into rocking and rolling if your belly is full of food. It just kind of interferes with any lovemaking you have in mind.
Eating foods that are good for you combined with regular exercise can also go a long way to enhance your sex life. The better your health, the more energetic you will be in the bed. Plus, with exercise, you increase your flexibility and stamina so you can perform better in the bedroom and enhance the sensual feelings of desire.
And don’t think your partner won’t notice the changes that exercise provides for your sex life. He’ll become your own private cheerleader as you work toward your fitness goals. So don’t be surprised if he wants to have seafood more often. He’ll associate that wonderful liaison with the scrumptious taste of succulent seafood.
Reducing the size of your belly also helps to make sex more enjoyable. You feel more like making love when you don’t have a big gut to deal with. However, for men, an oversized stomach can cause sexual problems. The more fat cells that a man has on his body, the more estrogen is released in his body with a decrease in testosterone.
For overall health, sex is very important. For men, a dip in sexual desire or performance can indicate other underlying health problems. Sex is an important part of our lives, so our sexual organs need to be in optimum condition. We need to give careful consideration to any changes in our body and consult a physician for regular check ups in addition to seeing them when you are ill.
If you see a doctor regularly, they have a much better chance of catching illnesses or conditions before they become worse. Things like your blood pressure, sugar and cholesterol levels need to be checked at least once a year, if not more often.
If you are on blood pressure medication, you need to have it checked weekly until it is under control and then at least keep it checked monthly. Many stores have free blood pressure checks and although those are not as accurate as your doctor’s device, it can signal an alert and let you know if you need to see a physician sooner than later.
As far as blood pressure goes, you might find it advantageous to purchase a monitoring system of your own. That way you can monitor whether certain foods, with say high levels of sodium are causing any fluctuations in your pressure. This information is very valuable to your overall health picture.
That’s where seafood comes back to the forefront. Not only are those omega 3 fatty acids useful for elevating your mood to improve your sex life; they are excellent for protecting your heart from disease or stroke.
You see, our own bodies cannot produce these essential fatty acids; however we need them in our diet. That’s why there is so much attention given to foods containing omega 3’s. So whether you go out to a nice restaurant or visit your local fishmonger, add seafood to your diet for many health benefits that will keep you living happier and longer.
Remember the better your sex life, the longer you will live. It really is a source of life.
