Fortunately, just like sports nutritionists have identified optimal meals for the best results in a run, nutritionists have also discovered foods that will increase your stamina in bed.

The good news is that each of these foods are delicious as well giving you and your partner the endurance to keep the love on. The better news is that unlike running a marathon, you'll really love trying these sex foods and seeing the results for yourself.
