Foods That Can Enhance Your Sex Life

Image by LittleOldShop from Pixabay

With the holidays approaching, sex may or may not be the last act on your mind when shopping for gifts and planning festive dinners. It is a fact that certain foods can lead to a happy sex life. However, no two bodies are the same, so each partner may have different results when engaging in sex.

So, let us get this ball rolling, no pun intended, and lists the foods to eat before engaging in sex.

- This creamy green fruit is loaded with heart-healthy fats and fiber that can deliver lasting energy in the bedroom. Avocado also has vitamin B6, which experts say can play a part to ease PMS symptoms like fatigue, bloating, and crankiness. All of that might help make it easier for women to get into a romantic mood. In Mexico, the fruit is considered an aphrodisiac. An old Aztec legend describes how young and beautiful maidens were kept in their rooms for protection during the height of the avocado season.

Chocolate - This is a no-brainer. Chocolate and romance go hand-in-hand. This sweet treat is linked with the release of serotonin, a hormone that encourages feelings of happiness and well-being. The mood boost that chocolate can bring may raise your sex drive, too. This indulgence also has many phenylethylamines, a brain chemical associated with lust and love.

Coffee or Tea
- These drinks deliver a dose of caffeine, which perks up your nervous system and help men perform better in the bedroom. Caffeine may lower your chances of erectile dysfunction, also. Coffee and tea also give you antioxidants that can help keep you healthy. Omit it close to bedtime. It could interfere with your sleep.

Fatty Fish
- Fish like salmon, sardines, and mackerel have plenty of omega-3s. These healthy fats ease inflammation in your body. That can help your sexual health.  If you are not a fan of seafood, you can also get omega-3s in flaxseed, chia seeds, and walnuts.

Maca - Native to the Peruvian mountains, the maca plant has been used for centuries to boost fertility. Today, research suggests that its root can improve sexual desire. Phytonutrients in the plant may raise sperm count and sexual function as well. Maca root is often sold as a powder. It has a nutty, earthy flavor. You can add it to your yogurt, smoothies, salads, soups, or baked goods.

- are loaded with zinc, a mineral, which helps the body make the hormone testosterone and plays a role in your mood and sex drive. Zinc may also help men make more sperm. It might also help those sperm move better. If you are not a fan of shellfish, you can load up on other foods that are high in zinc, namely beef, pork, fortified cereal, pumpkin seeds, cashews, and yogurt.

Pomegranates - Throughout history, this fruit was a symbol of fertility and a sex enhancer. There may be some truths to these tales. Experts say that drinking pomegranate juice can boost your mood, improve your blood flow, and raise your testosterone levels. Those are all things that can turn up the flames in the bedroom.

Spinach - Not seen as a sexy vegetable, who knew this leafy green vegetable is a sex pick-me-up. However, it can increase your sex drive in many ways. Spinach is rich in magnesium, a mineral that can boost your testosterone. It also has iron, which can help desire, arousal, orgasm, and sexual satisfaction, particularly in women.

- Dipped in chocolate or topped with whipped cream, strawberries are a romantic favorite. They are high in vitamin C, which may help pep up your sex drive, boost blood flow, and ease stress and anxiety. It also helps your body release more of something called oxytocin, known as the “love” hormone because of its link to sexual arousal and orgasm.

- This juicy fruit serves up plenty of an amino acid called citrulline. Your body turns it into arginine, another amino acid that helps relax your blood vessels. That can get the blood pumping in your sex organs in the same way Viagra works to treat erectile dysfunction.

Eat Your Way to a Healthy Immune System


Image by kalhh from Pixabay

With the onset of COVID-19, the flu, and the common cold, our immune system will need all the help it can get. While healthy foods will not necessarily prevent colds and other illnesses, a proper diet is crucial to maintaining a strong immune system. Give yourself – and your taste buds – a boost with these nutritious, delicious foods:

·   Button mushrooms: Enjoy them raw or cooked for immune-boosting selenium, riboflavin, and niacin.

·   Yogurt: The probiotics in yogurt can help ease the severity of colds. Make sure the label says, “live and active cultures.”

·   Spinach: Eat raw or lightly cooked spinach for maximum benefits including folate (folic acid) and Vitamin C.

·   Sweet potatoes: These contain one of the richest natural sources of beta-carotene, which your body converts into Vitamin A to support your immune system and gut health.

·   Broccoli: Phytochemicals in broccoli are great for the immune system so serve up a healthy portion anyway you like it – raw, roasted, or steamed.

·   Garlic: It packs so many flavors and that is not all. Some studies have shown that eating garlic can reduce the frequency and duration of colds.

·   Ginger: Add fresh ginger to stir-fries for a spicy kick, and because it is a great source of antioxidants.

·   Red peppers: Citrus fruits are known for their Vitamin C, but red peppers actually contain about 3 times more Vitamin C than oranges, and Acerola cherries are extremely high in Vitamin C.

·   Chicken soup: That old saying about chicken soup turns out to be true. If you do have a cold, a nice hot bowl of it can help ease your symptoms and get you on the road to recovery faster. 

Quick and Easy Chili

As the temperatures start to drop, you will need warming, crowd-pleasing recipes that are fast and easy to prepare. Chili is a great option. You can season it to your liking and add or substitute ingredients to suit your tastes.


1 pound chopped beef, chicken, or turkey

1 large chopped onion

1 chopped green or red pepper (optional)

1 tablespoon of vegetable oil

1 can red or pink beans

1 can chopped tomatoes or tomato sauce

Chili powder






Saut̩ your choice of chopped meat over medium heat until brown, seasoning it with salt, pepper, and chili powder to taste. Stir in the chopped onion and pepper, and cook until the onions turn translucent. Add the can of beans with liquid. Let simmer for 2 minutes, uncovered. Add tomato sauce or chopped tomatoes with juice. Simmer uncovered, 5-7 minutes, or until desired consistency Рnot too dry but with just enough liquid to be saucy, but not soupy. Add more chili powder, cumin, oregano, and salt and pepper to taste. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer for 20 minutes. Serve over rice, couscous, or noodles.

Stella Eromonsere-Ajanaku



Choose Me

~ A Sweet & Steamy Romance is a huge scoop of romantic ice-cream served on a summer day. Taste it! ~


To experience a racing pulse, elevated heart rate, laughter & a scorching skin, read every page.


To love is to lose his mind.


“I’m James Lincoln and I don’t make empty promises. You’ll find out who I am in the coming days and months...”

~ James Lincoln.


“Why do I need your sexy white ass to marry my curvy black behind to solve whatever issues you think I have, hmm?”

~ Jayla King.



~ A Flirty & Feisty Romance Novel: Love for real ~

“Can I massage your sexy muscles?”

When Vlogger, Jayla King scorned by love in the past directs her flirty question to the guy with a toned butt, bewitching blue eyes and chiselled muscles, she has no idea who he is or what he is after. He is over-the-line hot, period! Although arrogant, he is a luxury white chocolate bar laced with rum.

When he counters with a series of questions, she becomes suspicious of his motives and backs away! But she stays long enough to find out his dark side…

Now she knows the road to his New Orleans mansion will lead to nowhere…


“If you take off your nose ring,” he raised one full dark eyebrow. “I might oblige you.”

Cocky and living a great lifestyle while putting the dark times behind, along with his narrow-minded family, New Orleans mansion owner, James Lincoln replies with a cheeky question when YouTuber, Jayla disrupts his morning.


He should have ignored her and walked on.


Instead, his fantasy becomes reality when the woman with breath-taking laughter, sun-glazed skin and a sinfully-sweet curvy booty flips on his heart switch like no other woman.

When he offers her more than she asks for, she spits out the loudest, ‘NO’ on the planet! Yet, she drives him out of his mind. The moment he finds out her dirty secret, she brings out the worst in him.


“We’re done, Jayla!”

He doesn’t need a fairy-tale ending now, or ever! He is better off without her belly pouch, flabby arms and stretch-marked cleavage anyway until a freaking incident…


As his expectation comes crashing down, will James walk away for good, or will he and Jayla choose each other?


~ From the Author of Bestselling Romance: Longing for You – A BWWM Sweet & Steamy Romance ~


~ ~ ~ ~

Read a Snippet from Choose Me

James watched the fruity juice stain the corners of Jayla’s lips.


Despite the severe talk he had with himself before the evening began, he lunged forward, cupped Jayla’s neck with one hand and meshed her lips with his own.


With his tongue, he wiped the sweet goo around her lips, pushed further inside her mouth, hoping to make her feel all the emotions charging through him.


Folding her hands around his neck as she moaned, she fried his tongue with hers. Jayla stroked and stoked flames inside his mouth, steering a storm down south. While her head fell back, he padded her nape with one hand until she laid on the rug and he pressed his chest over her cleavage.


With his body heating up fast, he brushed his hand past the keyhole of her dress to mould his fingers around her boobs. Her soft flesh scalded his fingers. When he ached to the point his body vibrated, he rolled off her body.


“I’m taking you home, Jayla.”


“Why is that?”


“Don’t ask.”


“Why not, James?”


“I didn’t want to lure you into my bed. That would be too obvious. So, I’m going to stop.”


When he stood and helped her to her feet, he saw her lips tremble as she pulled down her dress.


Tonight, he had deepened his grip on her mind and body. She craved his stare. More than that, she yearned for one more kiss, or two.

“Maybe if you weren’t so cynical about my motives, you’ll see that I find you too damn attractive to care about any other woman. And I’m not going to take no for an answer. Got it?”


He tipped his head to the side.


Laughter gushed out of her mouth in the same way water poured down the steep incline of a cliff.


“What a breath-taking laughter you’ve got, Jayla.”


“Thank you. But I’m sorry to disappoint you, James. I’m not attracted to you. Maybe if I were–”


He reached out one hand and curled his fingers behind her neck. The second her warm skin hit his palm, whatever she had to say melted in her throat. While teasing her with his eyes, he stroked the side of her face with featherlike caresses.


She licked her lips. He did not stop, instead he traced his fingers along her rounded jaw and perched his thumb under her bottom lip.

Gripping his waist with both hands, Jayla shut her eyes and parted her lips.


Power-driven current spread through his chest and his entire body. A soft moan slipped out of her half-opened lips. She inhaled deeply, lifting her large boobs to arouse his senses. He ground his teeth because he wanted more than a kiss from her.


“I want more than a hot kiss from you, Jayla King.”


The woman who accepted no bull shit slanted her head to the side.


So, he cupped her left cheek and rubbed her satin-smooth, glowing skin with his right thumb.


Jayla sucked on her bottom lip and dropped her dark lashes. In the meantime, his pulse was doing above crazy sprints.


“Say something, Jayla,” he urged.


“What do you want me to say?” She sounded as if her breath was hitched in her throat.


“Say you want me.”

Announcing the Launch of The Black Shopping Network™

Started on July 7, 2020, and founded by Janice McLean DeLoatch, The Black Shopping Network™ is a highly recognized, low-cost vehicle for minority businesses to reach a substantial audience and generate sales they never dreamed of while efficiently managing costs, including strategies to target and capture loyal customers everywhere. Since many small, minority-owned businesses either do not have a website and/or waste their limited resources depending on ads on social media that do not translate into repeat customers and actual sales and this is where this network comes in.

Their mission is to provide freedom for minorities to fulfill their dreams for income and independence from the vicissitude of wage labor. Freedom is what every entrepreneur wants. The Black Shopping Network™ moreover, is the minority community, a neighborhood force to support merchants and consumers' needs. Being a Black entrepreneur is not easy; hate and racial injustice have created an undeserved community and deprived Black enterprises of the tools for success. The Black Shopping Network™ is a Black-owned business from top to bottom.

The Black Shopping Network™ will feature services such as low-cost website development, search optimization, national advertising, business spotlighting, low-cost liability insurance, and minority small business resources, providing a suite of AI tools to manage daily operations and customer loyalty, and to protect, sustain and grow their business while reducing risk. Their objective is to remove persistent barriers to access that have hindered minority businesses from competition especially critical AI platforms that heretofore have limited growth and sustainability.

The Black Shopping Network™ will provide affordability, recognizability, market reach, and access to financial and community resources to shape and sustain every small minority-owned business anywhere. Their goal is to have over 10,000 small businesses on their platform with over one million shoppers the first year and over 30,000 merchants with over 2 million shoppers by the end of the second year. For additional information, please click here.

Meet RW Reels, author of Case of the Lost Child

This post is part of a virtual book tour organized by Goddess Fish Promotions. RW Reels will be awarding a $20 Amazon or Barnes and Noble GC to a randomly drawn winner via rafflecopter during the tour. Click on the tour banner to see the other stops on the tour.

The Trey Parker Story II: Case of the Lost Child, the second novel in this paranormal thriller series, will make readers keenly aware of the unseen world around them. After hiding away in a small farm town in the Philippines, Trey Parker is compelled to return to the States to assist Detective Landis in finding a lost child. Trey’s wife, Iris, fears that the secret government agency that monitored Trey since his Near-Death Experience and took the lives of the tenants of the Sundance Apartments will be waiting for him upon his arrival. Iris believes Trey leaving so close to her due date is reckless and that he is oblivious to the perils.

Back in Tacoma, Washington, Detective Landis is still unable to cope with the loss of his daughter and his ex-wife Jada, even as the Detective struggles with a new relationship. Landis’s past is not so easy to escape, as Thomas Barstow attains parole and looks for the opportunity to settle the score that can only be resolved through bloodshed.

The lives and souls of all hang in the balance and divine intervention may be only the solution.

Read an Excerpt

“I don’t think you can understand how it feels. Having a miscarriage is not the same as losing an eight-year-old child…”

About the Author:

My infatuation with writing was born before I ever took my first breath, somewhere on the rural plains of Eastern North Carolina, nourished by the adventures of my grandmother's childhood. From the time I was only four or five years old, her memories gave flight to my imagination and fuel to my curiosities. Her stories widened my eyes to the fascinatingly bizarre in the everyday. 

As a young girl, my grandmother would bring her puppy with her to stalk rabbits every morning. The two of them would chase an unlucky long-eared rascal until it escaped into a hollow at the base of a tree, and she would run a stick around the inside of the opening as though churning butter. The spell of the sound and vibration would lure the rabbit out of the tree and into her hands. 

Good fiction, inventive and provocative fiction, reverberates in readers and spellbinds them. It can spur surprise, delight, discomfort, and revelation and defy reason. As a storyteller, I strive to help others solve their problems by sharing things that I have read about, heard about, and seen. But I also prize the look on people's faces when they hear the brilliant punch line of a joke, or when they experience an epiphany that knocks the logical wind out of them. These are the reactions that I live to inspire in my audiences when I write paranormal thrillers. 

My obsession with the extraordinary in my writing might also, ironically, stem from my 20-year career in the U.S. Army. I can allow my mind to wander in the extraterrestrial sphere while my love for my country keeps me grounded in domestic affairs. Of all of my accomplishments, serving as a paratrooper in a Special Forces Group and a Field Artillery outfit during Operation Desert Shield/Desert Storm claims high rank. Few situations force a person to confront his humanity as painfully as going off to war, and this experience taught me both to accept accountability for my actions and to trust others. Eventually, I became a successful Army Recruiter and Station Commander, earning the Top Recruiting Station awards in Dallas and Seattle Recruiting Battalions. North Carolina Central University granted me a Public Service Award for my work in the local community. And currently, I serve fellow veterans as an HR Specialist for the Department of Veteran Affairs. 

Other passions of mine include playing chess, photography, traveling, and indulging in my contrarian nature by instigating debate. Spending time with my wife tops the list of my life's privileges, however. Whether I am entertaining her with my emulation of Laurence Olivier as Marcus Crassus or protecting her from an elk during one of our photography excursions in the wild, I treasure her companionship and affection.

When I was twelve years old, I announced to my Aunt Becky and Cousin Tony that I wanted to write a book. They stared at me in astonishment. The world of publishing was an enigma to simple country folks in Beaufort, North Carolina in 1982. These days I am achieving my dream with the ebook, a medium through which I can express my individuality without sacrificing my voice to expectations of marketability, popularity, and deadlines. My goal is to create an opportunity for escapism that is bold and absolute.
