WARNING: This post may be what some would consider TMI. So with that in mind, proceed with caution…..
Many people have hinted around at it, but no one has actually come out and said it, or worse…asked me about it. But I know people are wondering. And since I’ve never been one to shy away from touchy topics, why start now? So here goes. Sex is better when you exercise. Yep I said it. And I’m not just saying that. There’s research to back me up. Experts have many theories as to why this is the case. They vary from things like- when you exercise, you have a better body image and feel sexier thus making you want it more often to saying that exercise releases certain chemicals in the brain causing your sex drive to increase and actual performance to be better. Whatever the case is, their right. I can tell you firsthand. And if this grosses you out, stop reading. But if you want a better experience with your spouse, then try it. Exercise. Work out hard. Sweat. And see if the experts are right. You don’t have to tell anyone about your little "experiment". We’ll just know by the smile on your face! Hmmmm….let’s see who’s smiling at church next Sunday morning!
Tip of the day....Going with the same theme above, many of the foods and herbs that have been called aphrodisiacs are very healthy foods. Perhaps the vitamins, minerals, enzymes and anti-oxidants contained in these aphrodisiacs are the real key to a healthy love life. Here are some to try: asparagus, bananas, caviar, chocolate, figs, ginseng, oysters, radishes, truffles or mushrooms, honey, garlic, and black beans. Some scents known to have the same effects are frankincense, jasmine, and ylang ylang.
You never know, as you are becoming healthier physically, other areas of your life just might be enhanced as well! Happy eating!
