Food can be physically suggestive, have arousing aromas, be sensuously supple and entice all sorts of sexual urges to the surface. Serve up these succulent aphrodisiacs with a dinner menu that will amp up your (and your partner’s) sex drive. By the end of the meal, you’ll be begging for seconds, and I don’t mean of the food…
Thanks to the Doctrine of Signatures, which says that foods resembling certain body parts have a direct positive effect on them, asparagus has made the eternal list of aphrodisiacs. After all, it bears a strong resemblance to the, shall we say, male qualities. This phallic vegetable is elegant and sexual at the same time, making it a perfect addition to any dinner spread. Wrap it in smoky prosciutto for a sensual side, or serve it steamed and slathered in butter for a dripping sensation. It’s hard not to think dirty thoughts while feeding each other long spears of this luscious vegetable.
