Before sex: Dark chocolate-covered strawberries


When you're planning a special evening with your significant other and looking for a food that will put you in "the mood," definitely think "light" — nothing puts a damper on your sex drive like feeling weighed down, bloated… or gassy. My pick? Dark chocolate-covered strawberries: They're decadent and luxurious, but it's not just about their romantic aura. Both the chocolate and berries are loaded with libido-boosting compounds called flavonoids. Flavonoids act as vasodilators, which means they help your blood vessels relax. This improves circulation, and enhances blood flow to all your extremities, if you know what I mean. (Oh, and a glass of champagne or wine never hurts!)
