Red wine

Red wine isn't just for healthy hearts and antioxidant power against premature aging, the lip-lavishing liquid is also a lover's drink. Choose rich, musky red wines, which smell and taste sultry.

Red chilies

Hot on your lips and able to heat up the evening, chili peppers boast a substance called capsaicin, which increases blood flow and the release of endorphins. They also cause a lovely flush of the skin that can enhance the look of desire.

Pomegranates

Gorgeous when pulled apart, the succulent pomegranate is heaving with juicy little red arils that are big on flavor and phytochemicals that can boost circulation and sensitivity. Eat them with abandon!

Strawberries

A plump, juicy, red symbol of fertility, strawberries are one of the most popular Valentine's Day eats, especially when dipped in chocolate. Strawberries are loaded with vitamins and minerals that can give a boost to energy and libido. As a bonus, they are a succulent food to eat or feed to your date.
