Don’t believe it? It may sound a bit fishy but foods rich in omega-3 fatty acids — such as salmon — can put your sex life into overdrive. That’s because essential fatty acids are the building blocks of sex hormones in both men and women and help fight the build up of plaque in the arteries, improving circulation and increasing sensation in all sorts of important areas.
"Omega-3 fatty acids help with sexual response, by helping to raise dopamine levels in the brain that trigger arousal," says Yvonne Fulbright, PhD, a sexologist and author of Pleasuring: The Secrets of Sexual Satisfaction. "They’re important for energy, memory, mood and libido."
If that weren’t enough, we’ve combined the super libido booster salmon with the sex bomb among vegetables — the humble pea. Rich in provitamin A and vitamin K, the green pea also includes niacin, a B vitamin that dilates blood vessels and helps synthesise sex hormones.
While dinner isn’t going to repair any gaping sexual problems, the benefit of this super-sexy meal is that it comes together in minutes, leaving you and your lover with more time to explore other libido enhancing activities.
