Fill Up On These Sexy Thanksgiving Foods Tomorrow!

When most of us think of Thanksgiving, we’re reminded of food-coma inducing Thanksgiving dinners at the family table. This year, why not start your own traditions, emphasizing the sexy side of Turkey Day, armed with the knowledge that many of your favorite holiday foods have aphrodisiac properties?

Take a look at this list and share your knowledge at the Thanksgiving table.

Rosemary:. Rosemary is high in calcium, iron and vitamin B6, a known a stress-reducer that will put you in a relaxed mood, ready for romance. Poke a few fresh or dry leaves under the surface of the turkey’s skin, and throw a bundle of sprigs with a whole lemon cut in half and squeezed well into the interior cavity along with the stuffing. It’s a potent herb, so a little goes a long way to make your whole house smell intoxicating.

Pumpkins: The aroma of pumpkin pie increases blood flow to the genitals in men and women. Pumpkins are healthy and tasty, and also contain many libido-increasing vitamins. Counted among the secret weapons of pumpkin seeds are potassium, niacin, calcium and phosphorous, all of which contribute to our sex drives. High levels of zinc in pumpkin seeds keep men’s testosterone levels normalized by stopping the enzyme that converts testosterone into estrogen in men.

Cranberries: Bright red, tart and delicious, these colorful symbols of fall add that special zest to the Thanksgiving table. They moisten and enhance the flavor of turkey meat and accompany stuffing, potatoes and greens with equal flair. But did you know that they are packed with Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and anti-oxidants that keep your sex glands running smoothly?

Nutmeg & Cinnamon: The heady fragrance of these two spices conjures up holiday memories. You can toss them into a pot with red wine to make mulled wine; you can bake with them, and even use them for part of a centerpiece decoration on your table. They also have aphrodisiac properties when ingested in moderation. Nutmeg sweetens the breath (great for kissing), increases body temperature and creates a sense of wellbeing, all properties conducive to getting into a romantic mood.  Cinnamon possesses anti-inflammatory properties and helps with indigestion and preventing flatulence, which can definitely help your confidence with romance after a big meal!

Celery: Celery contains a male hormone that causes arousal in women. It also stimulates the pituitary gland, which releases sexual hormones, so this one-two punch can send out pheromones through the sweat glands and aid in sexual attraction! Chop up a handful of celery stocks into your stuffing this year, to keep it moist and add a secret dash of sexy!

It’s time to create your own traditions and get the most romance out of your holiday table. Stock up on all your favorite festive foods this season knowing that they are packed with added value for your sex life!



Step Out of Your Sexual Comfort Zone This Weekend!

The problem with being stuck in a sex rut is that you might not even notice that you’re in it. Your sex life might have just gotten comfortable and then slowly you start to realize that it’s gotten a bit too comfortable.

And when that begins, before long at least one of you is going to get bored. It doesn’t mean the sex is bad, it just means that you need to start making an effort to create sparks again.

A relationship is like a bicycle, when one of the wheels is flat, it will still go, but not well. Even if only one partner is in that rut, it’s going to affect your sexual relationship. When you need something that your partner doesn’t need, it’s can be difficult to understand why they don’t need it.

So if you’re getting the slightest feeling that you’re stuck in your comfort zone – or that your partner is feeling a little less than enthralled with your sex life – you need to nip the problem in the bud by trying something different. And you need to do it before it affects the rest of your relationship.

So what can you do? Here are five sex acts that will get you of your comfort zone:

  1. Work On Your Oral Sex Game: Oral sex is always something that you really get into and don’t end up zoning out in the way you can with penetrative sex. Some people complain that oral sex is one of the first things to go in their long-term relationships, so make a point to bring it back. Get in a position where you both are really comfortable – like one of you sitting on the bed and the other on the floor – then really take your time and get into it.
  2. Power Plays: Playing with power is not only incredibly sexy – it’s a definite switch out of your comfort zones. There are a lot of ways to mix it up. If your partner is normally on top, you try getting on top for a while. Even try switching positions more than normal, to really feel like you’re mixing things up. Include props for extra special playtime!
  3. Get A Vibrator: There are lots of sex toys out there for couples, but a bullet vibrator or vibrating cock ring means both of you get a boost, without them being too big or intimidating if you’re not used to them. Start with something small and before you know it, you’ll be building up to the big stuff.
  4. Add Lube: If you’re not quite ready for the vibrator, adding lube to everything makes it better. But lube isn’t just amazing when you desperately need it, if you’re looking for a way to break out of your comfort zone – but you’re afraid to try a new sex act – add lube to your old one.
  5. Mutual Masturbation: Mutual masturbation might not be something you’ve tried before, but it’s worth it. Not only is it incredibly sexy, it’s also a totally different view of your partner than you normally get, so it’s a perfect way to mix things up. Even more than that, watching your partner means you get a crash course in exactly how they like it, and that’s never a bad thing!
