For someone, it is the smell

Of a perfume…..Or just the smell of the body

For someone, it is the taste

Of wine….Or the kiss

For someone, it is the sight

Of the dress….Or undress

For someone the hand and the feet.

But more and far beyond that is the connection beyond the skin

The skin may tingle the organs of love that’s external

But what must tingle is the heart within.

The identification of the trigger is the key. The burning desire is there, sometimes it’s buried deep. But it exists. The big question is what ignites it! Whatever can do that trick is an aphrodisiac.

Aphrodisiacs — named after the Greek goddess of love, Aphrodite — are any food or drugs that arouse sexual desire or pleasure

Here are some of the foods worth a try-


Shat-a -vari means “one who possesses a hundred husbands or desirable to many”. It is considered both a general tonic and a female reproductive tonic. Shatavari may be translated as “100 spouses”, implying its ability to increase fertility and vitality.

An aphrodisiac for women, besides increasing energy levels, also helps to regulate the levels of the female hormones and thus, has a beneficial effect on the functioning of the reproductive system.

Fenugreek seeds

Saponins in the seeds boost estradiol (a type of estrogen). This, in turn, increases lubrication and blood flow in the vagina, increasing a woman’s probability and capacity to experience an orgasm. In perimenopause and menopause, declining estrogen levels can contribute to changes in the libido, including fenugreek is a safe way to ease the symptoms. Let the sliminess of fenugreek seeds remind you of something 😉

The Kamasutra shares Cleopatra’s belief in saffron. The smell of Kesar is divine. Let the olfactory senses take over! The nose just might be the sexiest organ on the human body. People with a higher sensitivity to smell report more pleasurable sexual activities.

In addition to having a pleasing smell, saffron taken in hot milk is supposed to have deeply calming and soothing effects on both men and women, leading to a serene environment. Almond milk with saffron is a great alternative for vegans.


Does the name ‘date’ make your heart skip a beat! These dry fruits are rich in amino acids, which are linked with increased sexual stamina and desire. Moderation is important as it can add extra calories.


Garlic is not only good for health but can improve your sex drive. This is due to the presence of allicin in garlic, a compound, which increases the blood flow to the sexual organs in both men and women.

Sweat it out!

You look as sexy in your sweaty T-shirt and damp hair after an intense workout. That physical activity can go a long way in getting you in the mood for a great lovemaking session.

Exercise has been consistently listed as one of the most effective aphrodisiacs, not only because it makes you seem more attractive but it also sparks your libido.

You don’t necessarily have to be a marathon runner or a gym junkie, just moderate amounts of exercise can translate to healthier sex life.

It gets you in the mood. You are sure to feel good after a great workout because of the release of endorphins in the brain which gives a feeling of exhilaration. This helps to boost a dull sex life as hormones are released to power the sex drive.

Proper hydration

Staying hydrated is the best thing you can do to amp up your sex life.

More lubrication -dehydration can lead to vaginal dryness that can lead to ouch-inducing sex and generally less action!
