Are there any foods you recommend eating right before sex? What about incorporating into sex? What about directly AFTER sex? That’s an intriguing idea.
BC: You can eat anything you like that doesn’t make you feel weighed down or sleepy. If you want the food you eat to increase your desire, try eating it off your lover’s body.
Dr. Ruth: If a couple is engaging in oral sex, eating something sweet might be a good idea but certainly not necessary.
JG: After sex, I always eat a large hot fudge sundae with fudge, almonds, sprinkles, caramel, and whipped cream, followed by a quick EpiPen injection into my thigh because I'm incredibly allergic to almonds.
How else do you recommend incorporating foods into your sex life?
Dr. Ruth: Eating food brings one a lot of pleasure. If you stir one appetite it will likely stir up others, for as the saying goes, the way to a man's heart is through his stomach. So couples today should work together to prepare nice meals when they can, and not have frozen pizza or takeout. By working together and then savoring what they prepared, that will set the mood for good sex. But exactly which ingredients to use in this meal, it really doesn't matter.
