Eating is a pleasurable experience. The moment our favorite food hits our tongue, there’s usually an explosive reaction. Electrical pulses are sent to our brain, which then translates that information into our individual tasting experience. If the food or particular dish we’re consuming is really good, we might close our eyes, twist and contort our expressions and, hell…sometimes we even moan. C’mon! I dare you to dive into a piece of chocolate covered cheesecake and maintain silence. It’s damn near impossible.
Certain foods have more of what I like to call the “hubba hubba factor.” They rev your libido, and get your juices flowing. Think bananas, chocolate, figs, and oysters (Personally, I don’t get the oyster thing. Anything that resembles phlegm doesn’t light my fire.) Smart men and women all over the world have added these aphrodisiac foods to their wooing arsenal. Wanna make your girl happy? Feed her chocolate. Wanna drive your man wild? Play out your enjoyment of the juicy strawberry you just bit into. In Dark Lover, J.R. Ward wrote a very memorable love scene involving the hero, Wrath, his love interest, Beth, and a juicy peach. Um, yeah…I’ve never looked at a peach the same way since. Hot, people. Smokin’ hot!
